Recommended Contractors and Services

Image of a houseI know how important it is to have a reputable contractor or service person do the job right and stand behind their work. The contractors and service providers here all have at least three good references or testimonials and warranty their work where applicable.

If you use anyone in this list and have a story about your experience then please tell me! Likewise, if you used a great contractor you would recommend to your family and friends, then send me a note so I can add them here!

 



Pre-Listing Services

There are some things you might want to do before you list your home. Some of these services may add value to your home and actually make you money!

Home Inspection

It may seem like an odd thing to do, but having your home inspected before marketing efforts start can save you difficulty later. Most prudent home buyers will have your home inspected as a condition of their offer to purchase. Depending on the age and condition of your home, their inspector may turn up a last-minute surprise maintenance issue. The buyer may then force you choose between renegotiating the price or letting the deal expire. Having your home inspected before it is listed may help you to avoid this hassle.

Home Staging

Home staging is a proven technique that often helps homes to sell faster and for higher value. It's value to you depends on how confident you are in home's decor and furnishings and how you have arranged these items.

I recommend:

 

Self-Storage

It's important to remove clutter to make you home as attractive as possible to buyers. You may also want to safely store personal articles to make it easier to hold open houses and short-notice showings.

There are many places available in the GTA for self-storage. I don't have specific self-storage places to recommend at this time. If you have a good experience with one and would recommend it to your family and friends then please tell me about it and I'll add them here!

 

Garage Sale

Many people considering a move have a collection of belongings they no longer use. If recommend donating unwanted and gently used articles to the Salvation Army or your favourite local charity. Expensive or special purpose items might be better sold by means of advertising on Kijiji, Ebay or in the local newspaper. You may also want to consider a garage sale.

If you are in the Greater Toronto Area, I can lend you signs for a garage sale. Please contact me for information.

 

Financial Services

If you plan to purchase a new home you may need a new mortgage or other financing. I recommend the fantastic team at Kingsway Elite Mortgage Architects.

 



Pre-Purchase Services

While you are looking for a resale home to buy, or have just made an offer to buy, here are some services and contractors that can help you.

Home Inspection

Most prudent home buyers make their offer contingent on the results of a home inspection. This can help the buyer make an informed decision based on the age and condition of the home and it mechanical systems. If the seller has the results of a pre-listing home inspection available then that can save time and hassle for both buyer and seller and maybe avoid the need for adding a condition into the offer. If not, then you, as buyer, should always consider having the home inspected before your offer is made firm.

Self-Storage

To simplify your move you may want to move some items you don't need for a while into storage. The less there is for the movers to haul then the lower the cost of moving.

Baby Sitting / Child Care

If you have young children then you may appreciate the opportunity to view interesting homes without bringing the entire family. This is obviously a very personal choice. For some parents, how the children react to a potential new home can be a critical part of the buying process - after all, your children are important! For others, it may be less distracting to have a someone else look after the children while they look at houses. Since not everyone has helpful neighbours, friends or family they can rely upon I found a service that can be useful to you.

After Purchase Services

After you purchase a resale home you may want to make some changes to personalize it. Here are some services and contractors that can help you.

Door Locks

After you move into your newly purchased home you may want the peace of mind of knowing that no one else has keys to your home. After all, you don't know how many people had a copy of the keys before you moved in.
