When you are listing your Barrie home for sale you will have to decide what you are prepared to leave behind and what you will be taking with you. The things that you want to take with you may need to be removed before any viewings so that buyers will not ask for them in the offer.


Appliances

Unless you are set on taking your appliances with you, most people leave them completely out of the listing. Appliances can end up being a great tool for bargaining later. In many cases the buyer will want to have the appliances included in the sale and you will probably have appliances included in your new Barrie home.

It goes without saying that any appliances that have been built into the home go with it. These cannot be switched either between the viewing and the close. Basically, anything that is built into the home should remain there for the new owner. Read the rest of this entry

2 Story Executive home located in great south end subdivision.

We have just listed a lovely 2 story home built by higher end bulder Grandview. The Abbey model is a popular design , espcially with families as it provides a nice computernook room on the second floor as well as 4 good sized bedrooms, open plan layout on the main floor and then a good sized basement. This particulr home is designed slightly differently in that the central staircase into the basement is built to the side of the home and hence the basement doesn’t suffer with the staircase and is correspondingly very open and perfect for finishing. At 2500 sqft this home is large enough for even multiple children. Nicholson Crescent is also a very desirable area being within easy walking distance to several schools and the Catholic high school.

The video below will give  you a great idea of the layout ,  view the home personally by calling us at 705 720 2200

There are some common mistakes that homebuyers make and Barrie real estate agents see them time and time again. Read through them here so that you can avoid making them and make a smooth purchase.
