There are a lot of small projects that you can do around the house that will help increase the resale value of your Barrie Home. Many of these smaller renovations will even increase the value of your home more than larger projects.
You’ll need to look at the return on your money for any projects that you plan. Obviously, if you have something in your home that is an eyesore, such as a worn-out kitchen floor, replacing it will not only add value to the resale value of the house but will also make for a quicker sale. At the Hocking Homes Team we only work with highly accredited contractors in the Barrie area and have been able to refer the best in the business to our clients who are looking to make a few home improvements before listing their Barrie home. Scott Heather, of SCH Home & Commercial Home Improvements, is a Barrie contractor who has proven to be the man for the job in many cases with both our buyers and sellers.
SCH Contracting Bathroom Reno Before & After
Smaller projects are usually done with precision care and show the efforts of the workmanship involved. When a larger project, such as an addition is involved, the workmanship can be much sloppier so it is important to hire a trusted contractor who will do a thorough job verses trying to go at it alone. It is not only the change that will help increase the value of your home, but how well it is done and the quality of the work. Read the rest of this entry

When it comes to selling your Barrie home, the following question often comes to mind: What will happen to your existing mortgage when you sell and are there any costs to breaking a mortgage?
As a Barrie homeowner, you most likely have been paying a mortgage loan ever since you bought the house. The word Mortgage actually comes from the Spanish word ‘Mort’ or translated ‘Till death’! The borrower, that’s you, gives the Mortgage and in return you receive some remuneration, I.E. Cash. The Lender holds your debt (Mortgage) until you either repay it or you become deceased,(Mort). In English, it is basically a loan obtained from a credit institution such as a bank or lending company to help finance the purchase of a home as part of a buying agreement. During the term of the loan and over time, the outstanding loan (Debt) will become significantly lower due to consistent monthly repayments. Read the rest of this entry
