Barrie Home Buyrs InformationEvery home buyer should take a final walk-through of their soon-to-be new Barrie property before signing the closing papers. This is done to ensure that there is no damage to the property and that everything that is supposed to be included is in place and has not been removed.

This gives the home buyer one last chance to make sure that everything is intact. This is your time to verify that everything is a go at your end and nothing looks different. At this point, if you do see anything that looks different it is your opportunity to point it out and ask questions. Don’t panic if you do notice something awry – usually there is a very simple explanation for it that makes total sense.

Take a careful walk around the exterior of the house and make sure that the windows, gutters and foundation all look fine. Walk around the interior as well and test the doors, toilets, lights and anything else in the house that you can see. Don’t forget to test a garage door or garage door opener as you are doing your walk around.

Selling a Barrie city condo is much different than selling a house. There is a different target market that needs to be addressed and a lot of special things that need to be pointed out as selling features.

If you are selling a house, one of the things that may be mentioned is the yard and what it has to offer. If there is a large backyard with a beautiful garden, for example, this would be a highlighted feature of the home. A condo is not going to have a yard but may have special features of its own on the grounds. It may have a beautiful common garden where the condo owners settle after a hard day at work for some socializing. It may also have a pool that attracts a lot of children, which would make this condominium seem very attractive to families.  Read the rest of this entry
