The Dog Days of Summer

The weather is beautiful, hot, clear, and sunny! And it seems like everyone is on vacation - including REALTOR®s. Accordingly, the last two weeks have been quiet and it is likely that this will continue through to the end of the Labour Day Weekend. 

If you are thinking of selling, and are ready to roll, take the time in the next couple of weeks to get your home ready. Tidy up the front yard, weed out the tired plants in your flower beds and replace them with some fall bloomers like chrysanthemums, and give your front entry a good cleaning. You may want to consider having the windows cleaned and the outside of the house powerwashed if it has been a while since you have last done so.

Make sure the inside of your home is decluttered. Most importantly, get a jump on your fall cleaning inside the house so that your home will shine when it comes time to list. The most important areas to focus on are your bathrooms and kitchen.

Or simply enjoy the last two weeks of summer and hit the decks come September!
