  • Remove snow and ice from sidewalks, driveway and around entry doors
  • Turn on any outdoor lights you have if there is a showing in the evening
  • Keep entry hall free of boots, coats and clutter
  • Stage your home for showings: light a scented candle or potpourri bowl, turn on lights, play soft music. If the TV is on, keep the volume low if a sporting event is on TV, we're bound to lose our male purchaser to the game - something to think about
  • No More Clutter! Pack up the personal items like family photos or grandma's old knick knacks on the fireplace mantel- it is too distracting for buyers and they may not notice all the features of your home. You are moving anyways! Why not clear out the stuff you don't need now and make moving day just that much easier!
  • Place a large mat in the front hall for all the shoes to be placed on
  • A home can never have enough closets.  Make yours look huge by clearing out off-season clothing, tidying up shoes, organizing and generally getting rid of what you don't use.
  • Don't leave personal items out in plain view: ie. toothpaste, hair spray etc.
  • Don't leave money, jewelry or other expensive trinkets in plain view. We trust our buyers, but don't "always" know them that well.  If you have a safety deposit box, now is the time to use it.
  • Always ensure that beds are made and clothing put away. 
  • Fix leaky faucets, toilets that run, burnt our light bulbs, tighten loose door handles; all those little things you've been putting off
  • Kitchens and bathrooms sell women.  Make sure they are clean!
  • Lastly, Relax.  People know you live in your home.  Don't worry if it's not always in top notch condition.  Sometimes, short notice appointments are  inconvenient, but they often reveal a very interested buyer.

Buying a home for the first time? Downsizing or Upsizing? Whatever the reason, the buying and selling of a home is a big event in your life. It's an intricate process involving many specialists. One of these specialists is a REALTOR®, whose job it is to make the transfer of property as easy as possible.

Not all licensed or registered Brokers or salespeople are REALTORS®. The term REALTOR® is a trademark identifying real estate licensees in Canada who are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). REALTORS® adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Business Practice. The code of ethics is a firm set of rules, describing what kind of performance you have a right to expect from a REALTOR®. It's your guarantee of professional conduct and the best in service.

That's why many buyers and sellers turn to a REALTOR®. As a member of their local real estate Board, REALTORS® have their finger on the pulse of the housing market and are in daily contact with buyers potentially interested in your home.

You can trust a REALTOR® to protect your interests and to look after details. And all the while, you're an active partner in the process, working with a REALTOR® every step of the way. So the more you know about buying and selling homes, the better your working relationship with a REALTOR®.

A REALTOR®'s commitment to high standards of professional conduct works to the advantage of buyers and sellers alike.

A REALTOR® is knowledgeable about developments and trends in real estate. A REALTOR® will get you the facts: comparable prices, neighborhood trends, housing market conditions and more.

A REALTOR® is committed to ongoing education to increase competence and effectiveness in real estate trading.

Every REALTOR® has been trained and tested. And REALTORS® are bound by a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Business Practice that ensure fairness to all parties in a transaction.

A REALTOR®'s pledge is to be honest in disclosing property information and forthright in providing the facts needed to help you make one of the most important decisions of your life.

And remember, only a REALTOR®, a member of The Canadian Real Estate Association, has access to the Multiple Listing Service®, Canada's most powerful real estate marketing system.

So if you are thinking of buying or selling in the Brampton, Caledon, Toronto, Orangeville or Georgetown areas call Diane Boyd first!
