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

The Real Cost Of Owning A Barrie Home

The cost of owning a Barrie home goes far beyond the mortgage repayment amount each month. In addition to paying your mortgage every month, you must consider the cost of insurance, property tax, and maintaining and improving your home. Many people only consider how much they can afford in terms of a mortgage and forget to consider other costs related to the home.
These are real costs that you will have to deal with and should be taken into consideration when you are purchasing a home.

Home Maintenance
There are certain aspects of owning a  home in Barrie that require regular maintenance. These include the heating and cooling system, the plumbing of the home, drainage, painting the exterior and the interior and too many more to mention.
Homeowners often forget to clear drainage pipes, which easily leads to blockages and leaks. Dryer vents can very easily lead to fires if they are not property cleaned and maintained. Maintaining the grounds and the garden should also be considered. You may need to purchase a lawn mower or outsource this work on a regular basis. Read the rest of this entry

A lot of people refer to debt and mortgage in the same breath when they discuss the mortgage of their Barrie Home. This is kind of amusing when you think about it because a mortgage is a debt with a breath of investment in it. Can it really be referred to as a debt when it is a rock solid investment opportunity as well? Barrie Mortgages and Debt

List all your debts

When you are making a budget and you need to list all your debts, your mortgage gets put down as part of the debts. When it is time to list your investments it may not be added. Why? Is it purely mindset that makes us think of a mortgage as a debt?

The glass is half full or half empty in this case. You can consider your mortgage as a heavy load to bear and have to struggle to make the payments every month or you can look at it as the best investment you’ll ever make and try to make extra payments to strengthen your investment.
