REBarcamp Toronto 2014

REBarcamp Toronto 2014

REBarCamp Toronto is one of my most anticipated Real Estate Events of the year.

For the past two years I have spoken at REBarCamp and other events. Nothing compares to the format and the open forum discussions that happen at REbarCamp. As a presenter, my role isn’t one of a lecturer but a facilitator. Presenters are encourage to inspire and collaborate thereby achieving the sessions goals.

This year the event is on Monday, April 28, 2014 starting at 8:30 am and ending at 5 pm.
Once again it will located at The Evergreen Brickworks, located at 550 Bayview Avenue which is just south of St. Clair Road.

In 2012 I spoke about how IDX is going to change the Real Estate Industry.

In 2013 I spoke about how focusing on a Niche was the way for the single agent to beat the big boys in Real Estate.

This year, my focus is on Videos. With videos you can increase your exposure. Each video is a clone of yourself helping you Lead Generate, Lead Conversion & Staying in Contact with Clients.

So how does REBarCamp Toronto work?

When you arrive, park your car. Parking was sponsored last year, so it maybe sponsored again this year.

After you sign in, you are greeted to a generous continental breakfast provided by BELONG CATERING.

Remember to bookmark http://rebcto.barcoderealty.com/schedule.php for your schedule which updates through-out the day as sessions are added on the fly.

I’m excited to announce that some special guests are coming to town.  Patrick Healey, Krisstina Wise, Gary Wise, Joe Schutt, Darlene Sodano & Suzanne Roy are going to facilitate some great sessions.

The following sessions are ones I won’t want to miss:

Should you build a team? Lead or manage brokerage? Get politically involved with the associations? Join us for an open conversation about the leadership challenges and opportunities in real estate.

Danny Wood: How digital advertising is chasing you… and how agents can use this for lead generation!

It’s a digital age and marketing is getting more technical. Those who understand the puzzle are leading the way to cheaper leads, better branding and with a local focus! Dan Wood will be showing us how to target consumers online and answer questions on the spot. Not just for internet geeks. This is for agents doing farming, referrals, seminars, FSBO and all pillars of business.

Five Things That Can Sabotage Your Home Sale

Real estate is a world where every detail counts. You never know what a potential buyer may be looking for when they view your home and for that reason, you must ensure a flawless presentation each and every time you show your home. Follow these tips to ensure you are showing your home at its full potential.

Unwelcoming curb appeal

First impressions are critical. When a potential buyer arrives at your home, not only do you need to get them out of the car, you need to wow them into coming in. Messy yards, chipped exterior paint and unpolished landscaping will send buyers in the other direction. Poorly maintained yards generally indicate poorly maintained properties.

Un-finished touches

Never show a home that is not ready to be seen. Gutters must be free of debris, walls should be freshly painted and all repairs completed.  Homes should be exceptionally clean and free of dust and clutter. Take pride in your home. Show it at its absolute best so you can sell it for its full potential.

Smell

Unpleasant odours are one of the biggest turn-offs in home sales and can be responsible for either subconsciously or blatantly deterring potential buyers. Tobacco smoke, pet dander and food rank as the most offensive odours and cannot be masked with candles or spray perfumes. Odour trouble often calls for replacing carpeting, repainting walls, or hiring a professional.

Excessive personality

The saying is true. A little goes a long way. Potential buyers need to envision their families living in the home so you want to ensure your style does not prevent this. When staging your home, opt for neutral colours and remove personal items.

Know the market

Be realistic about your selling price to maximize your number of potential buyers. Home prices are dictated by the season, neighbourhood and market demand.

Are The Perks Of Condo Living Worth The Fees?

Condo Benefits

Before you move into a condo, decide whether its in-house bells and whistles are perks you’ll use often enough to warrant the fees you’ll be paying for them each month.
In other words, think about your lifestyle, future costs to repair some of these amenities and their future selling potential. And, is it advantageous to have these ‘extras’ in the building or are the neighbourhood offerings enough?

If some amenities don’t tickle your fancy right now, they may make selling your condo more appealing to the next buyer.

For example, does it make sense to turn in your gym membership at a private club and take advantage of the facilities in your building? Will having a gym just an elevator ride away eliminate the bevy of excuses you use not to workout?

And if you are a sociable sort who loves to organize parties and group events, having access to a multi-use room or guest suite to rent makes condo living a lot more appealing, especially for those who are downsizing. In the same vein, giving up backyard living is much easier when you know you have manicured gardens on site to roam through in the growing seasons.

Typically a gym, rooftop terrace and party room are among the amenities a condo offers its owners.

But selling features of some condos know no limits.

Some offer Olympic –sized indoor pools while others have outdoor lounging pools.

Some offer saunas, hot tubs, games rooms, movie theatres, bowling alleys, indoor or outdoor basketball, tennis and squash courts, a library and golf and batting cages.

That’s the fun stuff. Services such as a concierge, visitor parking, dry-cleaning, dog-walking, guest suites, health and maid services may be offered through a user fee system, or they may be costs being built-in to your fees.

The Benefits Of Selling Your Home In The Fall

Selling in Fall

Timing is everything when it comes to home sales, especially in Canada where changing climates and seasons often dictate market fluctuations. Deciding to sell your home during the cool fall season can create hidden benefits to your sale and help ensure you get top dollar for your property.

Curb Appeal

Often regarded as one of the most important details when showing your home, the fall season is a great time to make the most of your curb appeal with well maintained lawns and polished landscaping. As the season cools, neighbours often invest less time in their yard work. Using this to your advantage your perfectly maintained property is sure to stand out on the block.

Cool fall weather is also the perfect time to finish do-it-yourself projects, repaint window coverings and garages, stain the decks and repave driveways.

Appeal to the season and plant bold fall colours. Selling a home is much like selling an image.

More time to dedicate to the sale

Selling your home can be a lengthy process; attracting buyers, arranging meetings and drawing up offers to complete the sale takes a lot of time.

Fall schedules usually see people home from vacation and back into scheduled routines. This applies to both sellers and buyers. It can also apply to professional inspectors, appraisers and notaries you may need to hire to complete your sale. Back to their scheduled routines means they are able to complete work more quickly.

Serious Buyers

Fall buyers are serious buyers. Often new home owners, retirees and people moving for career changes, these buyers are well researched and ready to commit to the sale.

As winter gets closer, most buyers want to ensure they are comfortably moved into their new home before the holidays and the stormy weather begins.
