How to make your home stand out when selling

We can help your house sell quickly and at a good price -- even in a slow market.

It takes a lot more than sparkling windows, scented candles and chocolate-chip cookies to sell a home in today's market.

Improvements should be made so that the property shows well, is consistent with the neighborhood and does not involve capital investments.

Beyond any doubt, the best investment you can make is new paint. Painting can make a room or an exterior fa├žade look brand-new, and totally transform the look and feel of a room or the entire residence. It is always wise to be somewhat restrained when choosing colors for a home-staging paint project. Avoid choosing colors that are too individual or flashy and favor neutral colors and schemes. This does not mean painting everything white, however.

Use subtle color schemes to accentuate the home's strengths and minimize weaknesses. Dark colors, for example, tend to make a room feel smaller, while lighter colors and pastels can make a room feel bigger.

There is another benefit to painting as well: the process of preparing the interior or exterior surfaces of a home for painting automatically allows us to go over the entire area receiving paint in great detail, and this can often expose items or areas requiring repair. It seems you always discover where the caulking has let go, where the wall is dinged.

It is always preferable that we discover and deal with these items before the real estate agent (or worse, the prospective buyer) points them out to you!

Leaking Home Foundation

360renos was getting ready to start a New Edinburgh basement Rec Room project when we found 25' of leaking foundation walls.
A picture speaks a thousand words!





But we had the moldy and rotted materials removed, cleaned up, repaired and dried out over the course of two weeks.

Then we got to rebuild from the ground up and improve upon the existing structure.
New tar paper and the framing was upgraded to 2x4's from the original 2x3's


New upgraded R14 Roxul insulation and vapour barrier.

New drywall, corner beads and taping.

Stayed tuned for more when we finish completing the basement.
