Actually before buying a home anywhere, there are a number of factors one should consider, the crime rate probably isn’t the first thought on your list, hence the reason we made it one of our main titles.  Luckily the crime rate in Barrie is fairly low.

There are different approaches you can use when doing your research. Here are some good ideas to help you find relevant and helpful information.Barrie Real Estate

Barrie real estate:  Bungalow Or Two Story?

Actually you could add any number of combinations to that statement. Backsplits, Side splits, contemporary and then of course you can have walkout basements etc. When it comes down to it there are many many different styles.

Well there are two very interesting questions and we come across them often. So to paint or not to paint? Painting as a whole is one of those things you can do that actually doesn’t cost a whole lot and it can give arise to two important sensory outlooks, 1. Sight (Pretty obvious really) and smell! Even if you just paint the hallway it will have that fresh paint smell when a Buyer walks in the door. However, what if you want to paint a few rooms a little out of the ordinary?

 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
