Organize Closets and Dressers: Get rid of clothes that don’t fit, or attire you no longer use. The best way to clean out a closet is to donate unused items. Organize accessories into baskets or cubby holes separated by the type of accessory (pants, shirt or belts).

Clean Walls and Baseboards: Scrub a little dish washing soap and water on a sponge or cloth over your baseboards, casings and walls to clean them up. Make sure to rinse the wall with warm water afterward.

 According to Forbes Magazine, only 8% of New Year’s resolutions last. If you want to be part of those who succeed, we have a few tips to help you do just that, and it is surprisingly simpler than you think. In fact, we’re giving you five simple steps to take to make your resolutions a reality this year.

Imagine going to a restaurant with your family for dinner. You're

planning on ordering a nice pasta and salad. Your heart is set on it.

But, after you go to the trouble of driving there and getting a table,

you discover that pasta is not on the menu.

That’s disappointing!

Of course, it’s only a meal. You can go somewhere else next time.

But, what if the same scenario played out once you had moved into a

new neighbourhood? Imagine you were counting on public transit

being in easy walking distance, but discovered the nearest stop is

four blocks away. Argh!

That's why it's important to ensure a neighbourhood has the

characteristics you want — before you make an offer on a home you like.

Think about what you want most in a

New windows will increase your home’s resale value and energy efficiency, but they can also play a major role in boosting your home’s style and aesthetics. With design in mind, here are some tips for your window replacement project.

Choose the right material.

The three main types of materials used in window manufacturing are wood, vinyl and fiberglass. Vinyl is the most popular choice for window replacements in Canada. Not only do they offer great energy efficiency, they also come in nearly every colour and can even mimic the look of wooden frames. Fiberglass window frames also have good thermal performance and have come a long way in terms of design choices.

Wood frames are timeless and a classy choice for your window replacement. You can

Ideally you should have a week or two available before you list your

property in order to stage your home and make it look its best for buyers.

But, what if you listed quickly and within hours of the For Sale sign going up

a buyer wants to view your property?

In that scenario, you need to do some quick "staging" to get your home

ready. Let's assume your property is already clean and tidy. Here are some

other things you can do.

· Open the curtains, even at night. This will make each room seem

brighter, more appealing and more spacious.

· Pull out some boxes or storage bins. Put away personal knick-knacks

(like that bowling trophy) and other personal items to reduce clutter on

shelves and countertops.

· Clear

Moving around the corner or even across town is relatively simple because you are likely familiar with the various neighbourhoods and you can access them anytime. If there's a listed home you want to view, you can simply go see it. 

Relocating to a different town or city, however, is much more challenging. It may not be possible for you to make multiple visits to see homes for sale. You may also be unfamiliar with the various neighbourhoods. 

So what do you do if you want to move out-of-town or need to relocate due to work? 

Your first step is to get the information you need. You'll want up-to-date data on the neighbourhoods so you can pinpoint the ones that are the best fit for your needs and lifestyle. You'll also want to get a sense of the
