Wasted time, high gas prices, traffic caused many of us to rethink commuting.Even the proximity to the Airports makes much more sense to live in Etobicoke vs. The Beaches, Markham, Richmond Hill. After a flight who wants to wade through customs just to hop in the car and drive for an hour to get home. Or pay a taxi fare?

Etobicokes transit is improving to. Soon we will have access directly through Light Rail Train LRT to the Major Airport Lester b. Pearson International. The big Box stores are everpresent and our Major Shopping Mall Sherway Gardens has undergone a…

You may think you don't want or need a second kitchen, but... Have you ever wished for more fridge space? Perhaps you're hosting a party and would like a wet bar to better serve guests. Preparing large holiday meals can be overwhelming and time consuming unless of course you have a second oven to bake that pie and more fridge space to store those appetizers you made ahead of time.

Consider all the alternatives... if you have a dining area why do you need an eat-in kitchen? Use your space wisely. Turn the eat-in into a den or office space where working from home becomes a possibility.

Buying a home means having an open mind. You may not have considered what potential every room holds. Attic spaces can become cozy bedrooms, home offices or the…

Create an atmosphere!

The Living and Dining Rooms of Etobicoke! Make them shine!

  1. Treat these rooms as if they were stage sets. From Parenthood More Julies home than Zekes. Suggest a good family life, a guitar is warm, a dictionary, half finished crossword puzzle- let the buyer imagine living in your home.

  2. If you have a fireplace make it the focal point and decorate the mantle or add some Art. or Mirrors work great. Here are some great ideas. 

  3. Remember from Day 2 . The family traffic must flow. Imagine the Bravermans coming through your home. Remove large furniture so people do not have to walk around it. Remove all foot stools or ottomans. Make room for Daddy!

    1. The Front door may need a fresh painting or some new hardware. If the door or lock stick this will just create issues with the Lockbox. Fix it before the phone call comes.

    2. If the Porch needs a welcome mat Home Depot or Loews have many choices. Make your guest feel that this is a home not a house. Add some flowers for a prettier attention grabber. 

    3. Open those Picture window curtains and make the glass sparkle.

    4. This is the homes first impression after curb appeal. Make it more appealing!

    5. The Front Foyer, Entrance or Hall Make them all feel larger. Add a well placed mirror.

    6. And if you haven't already, taper down or clean out your Closet and make room.

    7. If its a dated tile in the foyer, update it…
