When to Paint Your Door Orange?

With Halloween close approching we found this article fitting. We have seen lots of bright red doors on homes but why not choose orange next time you're thinking about painting. Check out the article below for some ideas. Orange is a great colour for an entry of a home but hard to match with.

A new home under construction at The Summit at Thetis

Today, we just started construction on a new home on Lot 13 at The Summit.  It is similar to the Poplar model, our main show home, but it has been modified to take better advantage of the shape of the lot, and the view to the park and city beyond from the master bedroom.

 

 

At only $529,900 including appliances, blinds, and GST this is an excellent value in a nearly sold out subdivision.

 

If you want to learn more visit our website.  To make this home yours before someone else does, contact us today, or visit our sales centre at 39 Bamford Court, every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4pm.  

 

Even better, buy this home while it is under construction and take advantage of the opportunity to choose your own colours and surfaces! (s)

We are proud to be able to help the United Way help others!

 

Besides financially supporting the United Way, we wanted to see if there was more that we could do to help such a great organization do an even better job in our great city.  We feel strongly that as a successful local business, it is our responsibility to give back to our community.

 

When we heard that the United Way was scrambling to find bags to use to deliver their workplace campaign materials we saw it as an opportunity to step up!   Now, the United Way has enough good looking, United Way red bags to last them for a couple of years.

 

Thanks for allowing us to help!

Is there any truth to the believe that it is best to list in the spring?  The truth may surprise you.

As you would expect, it was very clear that during certain months of the year, generally in the late spring, there were many more sales than there were in the November to January time frame.  Does this mean that you should list in the spring?  Looking at the data, we can see that inventory is highest in the spring, meaning more competition, and that there are also the most new listings being launched in the spring, meaning more distraction for buyers causing them to...
