At D. W. Howard Realty, in selling Ridgeway ON homes, Fort Erie homes, and Niagara Falls homes, we have seen sellers win and sellers sadly lose big time. If you are thinking of upgrading your Niagara Ontario Canada home for sale on the spring market, use caution when considering the following “upgrades”…

POOL – There are pool lovers that would be willing to pay a premium for a sparkling new pool. There are also pool haters who would pay a premium to have it removed. Nice to have but don’t expect to get your money out of it when it’s time to sell.

OVER THE TOP LUXURY STATE OF THE ART KITCHEN – Your kitchen may be a stunner and create a perfect beef wellington, but if it’s in a neighbourhood that tops out at $130,000 it’s not a good investment.

GARAGE INTO A DEN – In a subdivision of 1200 square foot homes, turning the garage into living space to make it a 1600 square foot home and parking outside instead won’t make buyers want to pay more for your property.

UNIQUE PAINT JOBS – Fun colours are for living; neutral colours are for selling.

WALL-TO-WALL CARPETING – Today’s buyers prefer hardwood flooring. Even if it’s in rough shape, your home will sell faster if buyers can see that there’s hardwood.

ANY UPGRADE THAT REQUIRES BORROWING MONEY – Even with excellent upgrades, it’s often difficult to get a dollar-for-dollar return on your investment. Hesitate to borrow money to update your house; credit card interest is not your friend.

Contact D. W. Howard Realty for information on mortgage insurance, and the current housing market situation and unique real estate needs in Fort Erie ON, Port Colborne Ontario, Ridgeway ON, and Crystal Beach Ontario Canada.

The Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation (CMHC) has been asking Canadian real estate agents to hide from consumers the fact that they are sellers in the transaction, which would indicate that the listing is a home in foreclosure.

Currently, it is mandatory to disclose that the CMHC is the one in possession of a property, when it is loaded onto the MLS system of local boards. In Quebec, there is even a mandatory repossession field where real estate brokers must check yes or no.

In Canada, buyers purchasing a home with less than a 20% down payment  and who borrow from a financial institution covered by the Bank Act are required to get mortgage default insurance.  CMHC is backed 100% by the Canadian federal government, and controls about 75% of the mortgage insurance market.

Canada-wide, foreclosures appear to be on the decline. According to the Canadian Bankers Association only .32% of mortgage holders are in arrears, and this number is declining.
