Getting Your Home Ready For Fall

Fall 2019 Has Arrived

Getting your home ready for fall is important. It’s time to talk about fall maintenance. There can be a lot to consider, such as maintenance and cleaning both inside and outside of your home. And it’s important to do every year in preparation for fall and winter. Let’s get ready for fall.

Cut The Lawn

This one is simple and you’ll probably have to cut your lawn many times throughout the fall. You want to make sure that you’re ready for the leaves. Keeping your lawn cut and clean of leaves will make sure that when the snow comes you won’t be rushing to get the leaves cleared. Let’s now go inside your home and clean that oven.

Clean Your Oven

This should be done at least once a year and fall is a good time as any. People talk about spring cleaning all the time, let’s also talk about fall cleaning. The winter and fall bring lots of holidays, so having your oven clean means you’ll be ready to cook lots of wonderful meals. And it might also be time to have your fireplace professionally cleaned so you’re ready for those cozy nights.

Get Your Fireplace Ready For Fall

If you have a fireplace you know the importance of making sure its in working order and that means cleaning. You can hire a professional to come and make sure that if there is any maintenance to be done. Then you can have lots of nights by the fire all fall and winter, worry free. Something else to consider getting cleaned would be your Eavestroughs. Though you might want to wait until after all the leaves have fallen.

Clearing Your Eavestroughs

This is good to do during the fall, after the fall and mid fall. You should never neglect your Eavestroughs. Because regular maintenance is important. You don’t want to have a situation where you’re troughs are badly clogged. There are many professionals that will be able to provide this service if you’re not experienced in this area. And now you’re ready for fall. And if you’re thinking it might be time to sell your home, contact me today.

The July 2019 statistics were provided by the REALTORs Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB). July 2019 saw a 10.9% increase from July 2018 in the sales of residential properties.

Single family homes also saw an increase by 13.1% compared to the same time last year. And it was also reported that the average listing price for a single family home in Burlington increased by 7.2% to $767,293.

We’ll review and summarize the July market statistics for the Burlington real estate market. Below is the first chart, Residential Market Activity, it shows us the sales and average cost of a residential property in Burlington, Hamilton and the surrounding areas.

The above chart, Residential Market Activity for RAHB Areas, indicates to us that Burlington had a very strong July 2019. Burlington had a reported 276 sales with an average listing price of $767,293.

This clearly shows us that there’s been an increase in both the average listing price and the number of sales. We clearly see this when we compare the number to July 2018.

Let’s now take a look the map below, Average Residential Price by District. So that we can get a better idea of what the month looked like in terms of sales and average price of a residential property in each area.

It becomes clear right away that the area with the highest number of residential properties was Millcroft (35). This is Burlington’s most sought after neighbourhood. And the numbers indicate that this remains true for the month with a total of 84 sales. And with an average listings price of $719, 338.

Overall Burlington had a strong July and from the Bay to Highway #5 we can see the evidence of this. The next chart, Burlington Residential Table for a more in-depth look at the numbers.

Our final chart, Burlington Residential Table illustrates how Burlington’s market did for the month of July. We can see that there were a total of 359 new listings and 484 active listings.

And with the median price being $700,000 which is only a 1% increase from the same time last year. The market remains very steady as we get closer to the fall market.

Finally we can take a look at the average number of days a property was on the market in July, which was 28 days. Lets now turn our attention to some more RAHB statistics.

RAHB Statistics for July

For the month of July it was reported that there were a total of 1,170 sales of residential properties for the entire RAHB market area. This is a 10.9% increase when compared to the same time last year. And with the average listing price seeing a 0.9% increase from July 2018 to $593,702.

“A yearly real estate cycle sees peaks in spring and fall, with a typically slower summer. Average prices have stayed fairly stable since the spring high, which could point toward a healthy fall market when we could see the number of sales edge higher again.” – RAHB President Bob Van de Vrande .
