Personal, Professional Service.
Every client is treated to the same service and effort. No matter the value of the home they are buying or selling. What matters most is your satisfaction. Nothing else.
Whether you live in Airdrie, Calgary, Crossfield or Carstairs your home should feel like your private sanctuary, your place of Zen, the one place (aside from Maui) where you can put your feet up after a good long day of work, and just be comfortable in your own space.
Occasionally, it may take a tweak or two to your home to get it feeling juuuust right.
Of course, this sparks many different questions:
- What renovations should I do?
- Can that wall be moved?
- How much will it cost?
-How quickly can it be done?
- I'm thinking of selling my home. Will the renovation increase the value?
- I want to buy this home, but can I renovate it to make it just right for my family?
Are you wondering about doing a renovation on a home you are buying or selling? Let's take a look at some scenarios...
Are you considering a kitchen renovation prior to selling your home in Airdrie? And you've watched all the renovation shows on HGTV, but still looking for answers?
We had a client earlier this year ask us, "will upgrading our kitchen counter tops to quartz with a tile backsplash add value to our home?"
After studying comparable properties in the area, we concluded this would certainly be valuable to a buyer looking at purchasing the home, and thus, the renovation was completed, and with a great result!
What about a bathroom renovation prior to buying your home in Crossfield? You've seen every bathroom renovation on Houzz and Pinterest, but still confused what to tackle first?
We had another client wondering if updating their ensuite bathroom with new flooring, granite counter tops, and a new shower would help sell their home faster.
Based on the data and viewing other comparable homes in the area, we felt the renovation would appeal to more people looking to move into the area. Again, the renovation was a great success!
Or maybe repainting your home in Carstairs? You've been to all the show homes looking for ideas..... but we still don't know which walls to paint? And what colour?
We had a client in the same situation looking to paint their whole home a... "unique" colour prior to selling their home. Interior designers can have widely varied opinions on what the "in" thing is now, and paint selection time can be overwhelming to say the least.
Based on comparable properties in the area, we were able to select a pallet that was more neutral and worked well with the existing colours in the house, and therefore saving our client a lot of money while increasing value in the home! Mission accomplished!
OR does your home in Calgary need a new deck and fence? Can you afford it? Can you add it to your mortgage?
We had a friend looking to buy a home in Calgary and wondering if he could afford to add a deck and fence to the purchase of the home.
We were able to get great advice from our mortgage broker on how to add the improvements into the mortgage affordably, so when they moved in, their home was ready to be enjoyed!
So, should I do the renovation or not? Will it help?
