The milestone has arrived – our country’s 150th year. What better time than now to stand proud and represent our Nation as a united community? We are very fortunate to be living in Ottawa – our Capital. We’ve certainly come a long way since our founders first settled here 190 years ago. Originating as Bytown, Ottawa was initially built to house labourers who had been recruited to help build the Rideau Canal. Times have changed between then and now. We are no longer considered the “town that fun forgot” nor are we solely known for being “the highway to Montreal“. We are a thriving, united, Capital with an approaching 1 million residents – and that’s just the beginning. In fact, according to Mayor Jim Watson, “we’re going through one of the most significant transformations in our history“. It’s only a matter of time that we see these spoken of – and otherwise unimaginable to longtime residents – changes come to fruition. With the countless short-term and long-term transformations that are predicted to be completed around our Capital City between now and the next 25-30 years, Ottawa is nothing short of booming. We are an ideal place to live – one that is family-friendly, employment-friendly, restaurant-friendly as well transportation-friendly. There is an “unprecedented number of major redevelopments in the works: LeBreton Flats, the islands around Chaudiere Falls, the former Canadian Forces Base Rockcliffe, the Oblate lands on Main Street, parts of Natural Resources Canada’s Booth Street Complex, Tunney’s Pasture and the shopping centres at Lincoln Fields and Westgate” (to name a few). And that’s not to mention the most current of projects that will transform our city’s way of transportation: the highly anticipated Light Rail System, with its first phase Confederation Line to open in 2018. Moreover, Ottawa has an incredibly steady real estate market; one that’s only predicted to move upward over the next several years. According to the Ottawa Business Journal, January of this year brought in an 11.5% increase in home sales. Kick-starting 2017 at a five-year high says a lot for this time of year, and with the continued anticipation of changes being made within our City in the next coming years, along with members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board selling 667 homes in the last month alone, it is expected to only increase further. If you’re one to enjoy a lot of hype within our city, then 2017 will definitely make your heart sing. Ottawa will be hosting several high-profiled events this year including (but not limited to) the Juno Awards, the Grey Cup, and the Red Bull Crashed Ice event. Mayor Jim Watson “looks to 2017 as a year that will reshape the City’s tourism image” with the hope that Canadians and tourists alike will “identify Ottawa as the place to celebrate the 150th“. In fact, our City is expected to see an increase of 20% in tourists throughout the year, and is targeting both youth as well as new Canadians as a means for improving several areas of programming: arts and culture, sports and physical activity,

Selling your home? Read my article in the Ottawa Life Magazine where I had the opportunity & pleasure to write for Brandelyn Cameron-Martin Brandelyn Cameron’s Style Profile focuses on local Ottawa Experts. Nicole Rosenfeldt shares why Home Staging is essential for a memorable first impression in Real Estate. In today’s world, competition is fierce. Selling a home is no longer about hiring a Sales Representative and installing a sign on your front lawn. It is about working with a knowledgeable and professional Realtor who has a team, including yourself, to present your property to give the most memorable first impression. Home Staging is a huge part of the Real Estate process. While most of us live very busy and demanding lifestyles, the taste and the practicality of your family should be set aside while in the process of selling a home. The reality is you are competing with new home builders who have all the latest finishes and designer services. In order to be ahead of the competition, you must prepare your home to be desirable in the eyes of the general population. This is accomplished by using neutral tone colours, keeping your house organized, but most of all, clean and uncluttered. Practicality becomes secondary to presentation and personal lifestyle needs are temporarily on hold during the selling process. It will be a challenging period especially for families with little ones, but keep in mind photographers are not magicians. They can use fantastic lenses and flashes, but their cameras usually do not have an app to remove the dirty laundry, toys everywhere or the broken window. Take a minute to fix paint damage or loose baseboards. Anything unappealing will be in the buyer’s eyes a detriment to the value of your home and they will question how well you maintained the property. A little time and hard work can save you big dollars and surely avoid too many complications at the home inspection stage. If you know something is defective or in poor condition, the inspector and the buyer will notice it too. Why encounter unnecessary complications or risk losing a sale? Home Staging is a process and has many levels of tasks to complete to achieve a successful transaction. Most of the work is inexpensive, but in some instances, there might be a cost in order to obtain the best value for your home or return on investment. Your goal is to avoid price reduction or simply be on the market for as little time as possible. The more involved you are personally, the better your results will be! A Real Estate transaction is a team effort by skilled and hardworking individuals, choose well and ask relevant questions. Be ahead of the game and leave a fantastic first impression. Many home buyers search for their homes through pictures featured on MLS or during a visit where your property is showcased in the best light possible. A picture is worth a thousand words and the potential future owner of your
Wishing you and your loved ones a fun, safe and yummylicious Halloween, enjoy!
