Welcome to summer! Hopefully there will be plenty of nice weather over the next couple of months so you can enjoy barbecues, picnics, deck parties, and other outdoor activities.

 

Without question, it’s the perfect season for socializing. The long sunny days and warm nights are the perfect setting for sharing interests or discussing ideas with friends and family. You might even find yourself talking about the possibility of buying or selling a home.

 

If that topic comes up, remember that I’m always available to help with any questions you - or your friends or relatives - may have. Call or email me anytime.

 

My best wishes to you and your family. Have a great summer!


MARKET UPDATE:


The detached market continues to improve with year-over-year increases in the number of transactions as well as prices. Inventory is also up and outpaced the bump in sales which led to a slight increase to the months of supply.


The attached market is behaving similarly with improvements to both sales and prices last month. However this is a tale of two product types with semi-detached homes up nearly 5% from a year ago while row homes are down close to 6%.


The apartment sector continues to face challenges. Total sales were down last month (although they're up this year as a whole). Inventory levels and months of supply are also up which could lead to further price adjustments.

"FACELIFTS" THAT BOOST RESALE VALUE


If you plan on putting your home on the market, you obviously want it to look as attractive as possible to potential buyers. Improving the look of your kitchen or bathroom is a great place to start.


You don’t necessarily have to invest in a major - and potentially expensive - renovation. There are many simple, do-it-yourself ways to give your kitchen or bathroom a facelift and make it look (almost) new. 

Here are some ideas to consider: 

Instead of installing new cabinetry, just replace the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Those alone will significantly improve the look of the room. In fact, even just replacing the door pulls can make a big difference. 

Replacing the sink is also an easy renovation. You can purchase a sparkling new kitchen sink and faucet kit for far less than the benefit they will deliver. 

Replacing the countertop in the kitchen is a more complex renovation and, in most cases, will require the help of a contractor. But, a handy person can probably tackle replacing the countertop in a bathroom without too much difficulty.
