In almost every movie featuring a house on fire, the actors seem to be able to move around the house and see just fine, while beating back flames with a shirt or coat. Of course, that’s not what happens in real fires. 

When there’s fire in a home, there is typically complete darkness (because the power goes out) and a cloud of spreading thick, black smoke makes it difficult to see and breathe.

That’s why knowing how to get out of your house — fast — is crucial.

Experts recommend rehearsing what to do in case there’s a fire. Make sure everyone in the family has an exit plan. Each should know exactly how to get out, including primary and secondary exits, and where the family will meet once safely outside.

Never attempt to take anything with you. It

I am a successful realtor in Edmonton, Alberta as well as an active house flipper.

Flipping Houses in Edmonton

As many of you know, I started a flipping business in Edmonton, Alberta last year and I wanted to write a quick article on what to look for in a home if you want to flip and make a good profit. 

First and foremost you absolutely need to get the right team together. Your realtor will be your best friend, if you find a realtor that actually knows about house flipping they will be able to present you with what you should pay for a house, the approximate cost of renovations, what the closing costs will be, and then what it would be worth once complete. Most realtors will not have a clue how to put these numbers together especially if they have never flipped a property. I myself have flipped a ton of properties and can pick these

You’ve probably seen signs around the area for Open Houses. You may have even attended a few. These are open invitations for potential buyers to drop by on a certain day and time, to check out the property and get more information.

When you’re listing your home for sale, you might wonder whether you’ll need to have an Open House.

To answer that question, you’ll need to consider the pros and cons. Planning and hosting an open house isn’t as easy as it may seem. There’s a lot of preparation involved. In addition, you’ll likely spend hours making your property look its best and you’ll need to be away from your home for a good part of that day.

That being said, an Open House has many advantages.
