Hot tips to Thaw the Chill!

Feeling frosty this February? Here are few cool considerations.

  • Chill out and save. According to the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology, the most efficient temperature to keep your home at is 22°C when you're at home during the day, and from 16°C to 18°C otherwise. In fact, setting or programming your thermostat back by 4°C to 6°C for eight hours each day (or night) can cut up to 15% off your heating bill! Lowering the temperature not only allows you to save on your energy bill, but you'll also lower your home's environmental emissions at the same time.
  • Go with the flow. Most people only remember to use their ceiling fan on hot, stuffy summer days, but it's actually designed not only to cool you down, but also to circulate warm air more efficiently! All you have to do is flip the switch that changes the direction of the spin. The fan should spin clockwise to cool you off in the summer, and counterclockwise in the winter to force the warm air down.

Moving with kids? Here are some ideas to help you ensure it’s a stress-free experience for everyone involved.

Onwards and Upwards

When it comes to recognizing the highest return on your housing investment, you’ll often find it comes back to the basic adage of real estate success: location, location, location. If you’re looking to buy into an up-and-coming area, you’ll want to keep an eye out for these indicators.

  • Dump, or dumpsters? Nobody wants to live on a street with overflowing dumpsters, but if you see construction removal bins and trucks, along with lawn signs advertising plumbing, electrical, drywall and other work being upgraded in homes and local businesses, these could be evidence the area is being revitalized.
  • An upward trend — in commercial investment. Businesses take the time to research an area thoroughly before investing in it, so if you see “Coming Soon!” signs for coffee shops, popular restaurants and trendy shops, that’s a good indicator that you may want to follow the signs!
  • A downward trend — in days on market. You’ll want to ask your real estate sales representative about the sales turnaround time in the area, specifically the average number of days it takes for a property to sell. If that number is decreasing, it means that properties are starting to sell faster — always a positive sign in an up-and-coming area.
  • A community trend — in education. The trends of student enrollments often provide an interesting snapshot into the direction of a neighbourhood. Even if you don’t have school-aged children yourself, a good school district will always add value to your property when it comes time to sell.
