Earlier in the school year we had the opportunity to experience one of the Semiahmoo Music Society's various concerts.

While we had heard great things about the school music program, we were blown away by the quality of musicianship of the various levels of bands the school has. Afterwards, we had the opportunity to meet and talk with the Music Department Teachers,  all so very enthusiastic and passionate about what they do.

 




We talked about the students, the funding and how financing the program has it's challenges. Mr. Lowe, the department head, mentioned how they are constantly looking at way to fund-raise for the purchase/upkeep of instruments as well as funding for festivals, workshops and trips, sometimes to far-off places in the world.

We realized we have an opportunity to do our part. We enjoy supporting the community through various fund-raising efforts for food-banks, hospital charities, neighbourhood events and sports participation, but we had no focus on the music. And without music... well, what is there to dance to?


As a Team, we would like donate $400 towards the Semiahmoo Music Society for every house marketed to completion or bought through us in the South Surrey/White Rock area.
If you have experienced the joy of the Semi Music Society's talented students, please keep us in mind when the topic of Real Estate comes up in conversation.



With your assistance we can help the music in our neighbourhood play for years to come.

It’s probably not a coincidence that spring is a popular time to deep clean your house and also a great time to list it for sale. Any good agent will tell you that cleaner houses always sell faster and for higher prices, so taking some time to really make your home sparkle is almost always worth the extra effort.

Of course, clean is also a very relative term. What some people see as clean, others just won’t be satisfied with. And when you are expecting to welcome a steady stream of potential buyers into your home, you definitely want to make sure that you have all of your bases covered.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at six areas that sellers often overlook when spring cleaning their homes with the intention of listing them for sale.

The Windows: Both Inside and Outside

One of the most important things that you can do to really help your home shine is clean the windows.

And it’s not enough to simply wipe them off from the inside. Getting the outsides clean too will more than double the positive impact this job will have on the way your home looks.

Having crystal clear windows has two specific benefits. First, clean windows will let in more natural light, brightening your entire home. As if that wasn’t enough, clean windows will also invite perspective buyers to appreciate whatever views you might have.


 


Inside the Kitchen Cabinets

Everyone who plans on listing their home knows that they need to clean the kitchen countertops and scrub the floors. But not everyone realizes that home buyers will want to see what the insides of your kitchen cabinets look like.

Would looking inside your cabinets cast your home in a positive light? What about that junk drawer in the kitchen?

Drapes & Light Fixtures

Another commonly overlooked area that could probably use some cleaning is your drapes and light fixtures. Dusting them off is a good place to start, but why stop there?

Take those light fixtures down and wash them out, and when was the last time that you actually washed the drapes? You’ll be shocked at the difference clean light fixtures and freshly washed drapes will make in the way your home presents itself.

The Office Area

You know that one spot where all the bills tend to pile up while you are putting off sitting down to pay them? That’s another place that lots of sellers forget to take care of during their spring cleaning.

In addition to being neat and tidy, your home office area needs to look functional. Make sure that anyone who walks through your home will be able to see themselves working productively there.

The Overstuffed Linen Closet

The linen closet upstairs (the one that has never really been big enough) is another place that can really turn off potential buyers. In order to make it look more roomy, take as much of your stuff out of it as possible and put it in storage until your home sells!

You should also make sure that everything in the bathroom medicine cabinet is neat and tidy.

 



Don’t Forget the Outside

While most spring cleaning efforts are focused on the inside of the house, you definitely don’t want to overlook the outside of your home.

Make sure that there isn’t anything in the yard that doesn’t belong there, and spruce up any landscaping that looks like it might detract from a potential buyers first impression.

While you’re at it, you might also want to get out the ladder and give those gutters some attention.

One of the best practices to make sure that your spring cleaning efforts are successful is to simply start over every time you think that you are finished. There is literally no end to the amount of cleaning you can do, and every single bit of that effort will help to sell your house faster for a higher price.

Sunny and cloudy… PERFECT for garage sale gem hunting.

 

 

We received an email from someone concerned that theirs wasn’t a garage sale but a moving sale.

We get it, but how you market it, garage yard, moving, is not our concern. Getting the people to your driveway is! We want to maximize your profit on the backs of our marketing…Say, that’s exactly our goal as your Realtors! Ask to see our marketing strategy. It’s effective.

 

A number of todays sales are neighbours working together to offer you treasures as a group.

 

Enjoy the day and keep in mind, we sell Real Estate!

Our service is Top-Tier; head and shoulders to the next Tier!

We love our clients and our friends for thinking of HudsonHomeTeam, when asked for a good Realtor©.

Today we stopped by Uli’s on Marine Drive to say hello to our friend Tyson and have one of his amazing gluten-free meals (I had the burger, best around).

While there we decided this would be a great way to thanks our friend, Erin for referring Scot to us.
Last week, Scot moved into his beautiful new, fully renovated condo (with a room for his charming daughter).

Today, I am delivering a thank you Gift Certificate for Uli’s to Erin as appreciation for his thoughtfulness.

Erin, we hope you and your family enjoy the Uli’s experience!

 

Thanks again!
