Property prices in Canada are among the highest in the world and they continue to rise above the national average. According to CREA (The Canadian Real Estate Association), the average price of a house in Canada has jumped over 11 per cent since June 2015 and is expected to continue to climb. The average price to buy a house in Ontario is $710,000.

When you decide to sell your house you have to consider many factors, first of all, that the competition will be very high, so you should present your house at its best value.

Updating the interior and exterior of your house will put you in a better place in the competition and your investment will have a higher return.

Here some ideas to consider before putting your house up for sale.


The kitchen is the heart of every house. Choosing it without carefully thinking it through can be a huge mistake. Indeed, making the right choice, ensuring longevity of our kitchen, will turn in a very big strength when selling our house. Spending money on cabinets, placement of storage, task centers, accessories and appliances may seem expensive at the beginning but it will totally pay off big in the long run.



After the kitchen, the bathroom is a key room during the decision making process. The bathroom, in most of the cases, will be the room that will make buyers say yes or no. So, now, to answer your question: is it worth it to spend money on a hot tub or a luxury bath and shower? Yes, it is!



The floor is an essential element of a house. Choosing the right material is very important. Saving money during this process doesn’t mean making the right choice. Choosing a better quality and spending some more money on the floor will turn into a real investment with a significant return.



First impression is everything! Well, almost. The truth is, we can have a perfect dreamy house inside, but if potential buyers don’t like a house’s curb appeal, they’ll drive right past it and onto the next property. Keeping up with regular house maintenance tasks not only will keep you from future headaches and wasted money, but it will also help you to get a bigger return on your investment.
