Your Spring 2020 Market Guide

In addition to keeping you updated on the current market, it is also time to release my bi-annual newsletter. This edition focuses on how the 2019 Montreal market fared in comparison to 2018 and how 2020 will continue as a strong sellers market. I also share some great information about the 2 most profitable room renovations for your home as well as what it means to be in a multiple offer situation and how to best prepare yourself.

I imagine that you are all asking yourselves various questions about the impact of COVID-19 not only on the real estate market in general but also on your personal situations. Although the impact of the virus is difficult to measure, the fundamental building blocks of the real estate market remain strong and stable. Often when the stock market is uncertain and experiences turmoil, the investment in tangible goods increases. New listings are still consistently coming onto the market and sales are being made sight-unseen when the proper tools are used. Click HERE to read the full newsletter.

Always here for you

Though we can’t meet in person, I am always just an email or call away.

Additionally, I am offering the opportunity to schedule a Zoom video conference call with me so that I may provide you with property evaluations, help prepare you to list with custom home staging advice and/or help you assess your home buying needs so that we’re ready to go when the time comes… and the time WILL come!

March 24 Update

I hope that you are staying safe, healthy, and vigilant during these unprecedented times. 

As Quebec enters the official #StayAtHome period, I would like to reassure you that I will continue to be available for all your real estate needs.

According to the provincial government, the real estate industry (brokers and brokerages) is not considered an essential business. Therefore, we currently fall under businesses that can no longer operate face-to-face. This means that visits, in-person offer presentations, and listing presentations will not be possible. Other real estate related businesses/services that have been declared non-essential:

  • Inspectors; no inspections will take place therefore delays must be extended
  • Bank evaluations; financing delays must be extended
  • Land surveyors; no certificates of location will be issued at this time

Buyers and sellers scheduled to notarize transactions between now and April 13 can breathe a sigh of relief because it was announced today that notaries are declared an essential service. If you are currently in a real estate transaction with me, please contact me about what your notary is doing to maintain covid-19 practices as well as ensure your transaction is moving forward. For any general inquires please consult Chambre des Notaires du Quebec.

 

What I am Offering

For clients who are considering buying or selling, I am offering the opportunity to schedule a Zoom video conference call with me so that I may provide evaluations, help prepare your home with staging advice and/or help you asses your home buying needs so that we’re ready to go when the time comes. To schedule a zoom meeting please email info@carlyfridman.com

Some great news- on top of all the current marketing we’re doing, several of my properties will be available to view as virtual 3D tours by the beginning of next week. Stay tuned to my website for updates. Listings are still trickling onto the market and hopefully virtual visits for those properties will be made available.

 

At all times you can count on my professionalism, integrity, and devotion in supporting your real estate needs. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any and all of your questions.

“Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.” ― Roy Bennett

Back to School! Keep your home germ free this season to avoid getting hit with a fall cold

 

Back to School! Keep your home germ free this season to avoid getting hit with a fall cold

Germs are everywhere in our homes. While most of them are harmless, it’s still a good idea to eliminate them as much as possible to avoid the spread of illness. Here are the 8 dirtiest items in your home that you need to clean regularly.

1. Doorknobs and cabinet handles

When cleaning the house, we often forget to wipe down the many doorknobs and cabinet handles throughout our home. However, these are some of the items that are touched most often. So don’t forget to clean them regularly!

2. The refrigerator handle

When was the last time you washed the handle of your fridge? Our hands are often dirty in the kitchen, particularly when we’re cooking or grabbing some food after coming in from outside.

3. The TV remote

The slits and buttons make it very difficult to clean. In addition, we often have more than one and we touch them when we’re eating popcorn and other snacks in front of the TV. These remotes are full of bacteria, so it is advisable to wash them weekly with a disinfectant wipe.

4. The bathtub, bath mat and bath towels

The moisture contained in these items is conducive to the multiplication of bacteria. Experts recommend cleaning the bathtub after each use, washing the bath mat every week and changing your towels every three days.

5. Light switches

You may wash your light switches every time you wash your walls, but unlike a wall, light switches are touched many times every day. Thus, they should be cleaned more often.

6. Pillows and sheets

They are filled with dead skin cells, drool and sweat. To avoid bacteria and mites, wash your sheets at high temperatures. As for your pillows, there are protective antibacterial covers that you can buy.

7. The kitchen sponge

With more than one million bacteria, it is one of the dirtiest items in your home. Despite the soap, sponges actually spread dirt on the surfaces that you wash. It is advisable to rinse the kitchen sink and sponge several times a week with a natural disinfectant and water.

8. Your cell phone

While it’s not necessarily an object in your house, it’s the item that contains the most germs in our daily lives – more than the toilet seat or kitchen sink! Cell phones release heat that make them a breeding ground for bacteria. Furthermore, we bring our phone with us everywhere and put it down on all sorts of dirty surfaces.

Now that you know where bacteria hides in your home, you simply need to pay particular attention to these items and clean them regularly and thoroughly!
