A Top Reason People Want To Move
Every year many Canadians make the decision to move. A primary reason? The yearning to be closer to family. This desire is often driven by life's significant milestones such as growing families, weddings, new jobs and retirements.

Home Renovations

Now that the winter is here and we’re all inside more of the time than usual, you may be feeling that your home is a bit cramped. If so, you’re not alone. One in four people say they’ve outgrown their home.

This month I’m sharing some information on why and how people decide to renovate their homes. It could be an easy fix, like reconfiguring existing rooms or a much bigger project, such as building an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) or adding a second story. I’ve also included typical costs for these projects as well as the ROI. (Of course, costs will vary based on scope of project and location).

If you need a professional to help you with any home renovations, feel free to reach out and I’ll connect you to one in my trusted network.
