Are Condo Boards Working With The Grinch?

“No Christmas Trees Allowed?”

Most Condo Boards have begun posting notices around their lobby and in mail rooms “Real Christmas Trees are Not Permitted” “Wreaths and Other Decorations or Door Knockers Are Not to Be Hung on Your Unit Door”.

Does Your Condo Board Allow Christmas Trees?

Many of these notices have logical reasons behind them, fire hazards for example, and imagine hundreds of unit owners trying to proudly fit their 7ft Douglas Fir into the elevators. Talk about a cramped elevator ride – and a messy lobby!

However these bulletins during the Holiday Season can sound like they were written by the Grinch himself.

So how can we get our Holiday Spirit Back into our Condominiums?


Check Out Our 3 Favourite Ways to Add Some Festive Decorations To Your Condo!

  1. For Outdoorsy Types, swap out some shelves with tree branches. You’ll get that authentic Christmas tree feel without the pine-needle mess!

Keep it low enough for the kids to hang their favourite soft ornaments with ribbon or string

One string of lights should do the trick – Have some fun and dump the regular shaped bulbs for star shaped lights!

 


2. If it’s pretty ornaments that get you into the holiday spirit, a mesh screen is a great place setter for your favourite ones! This gorgeous DIY vintage window frame can display as many  or as little ornaments as you like.

Bonus: Not feeling the spot you set up? Pick up the whole frame (carefully) and move it around to any room you like!

3. A True Artist Cannot *Resist* a Chalk Board Wall! Check out the beautiful scene complete with fireplace and ode to Rudolph.

How are you going to dress up your Condo For The Holidays? 

Let us know! Post your pics on social media and hashtag #SuttonSpirit so we can see them too!

10 Reasons You Should List Your Home During the Holidays or Not Take it Off the Market

The Best Time to List Could Be Right Now!

The Best Time to List Could Be Right Now!

 

 

The holidays are here and some people think that is at cross purposes with selling a home. The good news is that is could be an even better time to sell your home because it is the holiday season. Take a look at what actually happens in the minds of buyers and how that can help sellers get their homes sold.
  1. People are generally happy during the holidays. They may be looking for that perfect home and call it their perfect Christmas gift. We don’t want to disappoint. Some agents say December is their busiest month meaning buyers are buying.

  2. Decorated homes engage the emotions. Buyers may relate or feel more connected to a tastefully decorated home. Remember emotions buy!  

  3. Fewer homes on the market mean less competition. If you wait until after the holidays or even springtime, you are likely to see other homes coming on the market in large numbers. Less inventory now means higher prices and less negotiation.  

  4. Holiday home buyers are more SERIOUS buyers!  If they are out looking instead of shopping and going to parties, they are serious about moving and probably have an immediate need. There may even be getting a year-end bonus they can use for a down payment that has them excited.  

  5. Relocation buyers are on strict timelines. Some may be getting relocation assistance and need to close quickly to take advantage of the financial help coming from the employer to get started in the new job.

  6. Your home may look its best during the holidays!  The pretty lights and Christmas décor will get the focus of the buyers and they may not notice little wear factor of the home. In other words, the home may look better with holiday decorations.  
     
  7. Buyers may have more time off to look at homes!  Many get extra time off around the holidays and with the kids out of school their minds may go to finding a new home as their current home suddenly feels not right for the family.
  8. Life happens and brings life changes. Houses become too small, children may want to change schools, parents may want to move closer to work, family members come and family members go. Our needs change and the time of year is not a discerner.
  9. The Seller can call the shots.  You don’t have to move unless you like the offer and terms. Remember serious buyers make serious offers. Buyers may want to get the New Year started in their New Home. You can make it happen for you. too.
  10. New Qualifying regulations may play a part in a Buyer needing to move while his Pre-Approval is still valid.
