9 Home Renovation Projects You Should Do in the Fall

Have you been itching to improve your deck space or paint your home’s exterior, but couldn’t fathom trying to do it in the summer when the humidity was in full swing and the thermostat stuck on sweltering?

Should I paint before selling my house?

Yep, probably…sorry to tell you that. Most homeowners that I speak to do NOT like painting. Guess what? Neither do the people that are considering buying your house.

Should You Update Your Kitchen Before Selling Your Home?

When it comes to home renovations that provide a good return on investment, the first things that often come to mind are kitchens and bathrooms.

But renovating these areas of your home won’t always return a dollar for dollar increase in sales price.

Cleaning

Montreal-based The Unscented Company wants to make soap cleaner

“You don’t clean your environment, your home, with toxic products (that have) synthetic fragrances,” founder Anie Rouleau says.
Anie Rouleau said she wants to “redefine the notion of clean.”

Traditional cleaning products make clean surfaces, but what’s in those products — and the plastic waste that’s created — aren’t so clean, she said.

HELPFUL HINTS ON CLEANING AND MAINTAINING YOUR WASHER AND DRYER

Laundry machines have changed drastically over the years but one fact that still remains is that you need to ensure you clean your machines to ensure they are always at their best. Whether you have top-loading or front-loading laundry, here are a few helpful hints that are recommended to be done at least once a month.

How to clean a refrigerator

During the moving season, many people find themselves facing an essential task: cleaning the refrigerator. Whether you own a new or used refrigerator, this important cleaning should not be taken lightly!

Indoor air quality app

The quality of air that individuals breathe at work can affect their health, comfort and productivity. The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers (OHCOW) has collaborated with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) to develop a mobile app to help individuals find solutions to indoor air quality problems in their workplace.

Wearable band prevents electrical incidents

Each year, thousands of employees suffer electrical contact injuries, with millions exposed to this danger on a daily basis. These incidences cost millions in insurance payout with even more lost to operations. Currently, there are no ambient, connected, always-on devices used to detect electricity. Workers rely on processes to de-energize and follow lockout procedures.

Gas detector listens for leaks

Honeywell has announced a new connected gas detector that listens for leaks ultrasonically, complementing fixed gas detectors to better protect workers and facilities against deadly toxic and explosive gas leaks.

finance

Should You Co-Sign Your Mortgage?

Total household debt exceeded $2 trillion, with 65% of that amount locked up in mortgage loans. With the price of property in cities like Toronto skyrocketing, it has creating a worrying situation for policymakers.

Consumer Alert: What you need to know when getting help to pay off debt or repair your credit

The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada is warning consumers to be cautious when looking for a company to help them pay off their debt or repair their credit.

When you need a business number or Canada Revenue Agency program accounts

HOW MURPHY’S LAW AFFECTS HOME SELLERS

Murphy’s Law states that anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Glitches in any real estate transaction are inevitable. If you are prepared, you won’t be so shocked when they do.

Price Right, Sell Fast

You’ve made the decision to sell your Ottawa home. There are lots of reasons to sell; you may have decided to move to a better neighborhood or to buy a larger home with more amenities.

Closing costs for buyers and sellers

You’ve found the perfect Ottawa home! It’s in the perfect neighbourhood, on the perfect street with the perfect neighbour and the perfect backyard. You’ve cannily negotiated the perfect price, one that leaves you with just enough money to cover the cost of your move and maybe pay for a new set of patio furniture.

I have decided to stage my house. Now what?

Staging works!

• Buyers are looking for move-in-ready homes NOT projects and to do lists. Staging shows buyers exactly what the benefits are of a property. It shows that the property has been well maintained and this something that all buyers are looking for.
