I have listed a new property at 1 BURNS Place in Fort Erie.
Own a part of history! This is a totally unique opportunity to own one of the region's original settlement homes sitting on just under 4 acres within Fort Erie and set back from the famous Niagara River Parkway. In a commanding position with views of the river and towards Buffalo, this home has been in the hands of the same owners for the past 40 years. Although it is perfectly livable as is, it would now benefit from a new owner who has the enthusiasm to restore the home to it's former glory. Also, possible development potential on some of the land around the house. Main floor consists of living room with marble fireplace, formal dining room, sitting room, bathroom, kitchen and breakfast room. The grand foyer has a wonderful staircase leading to a total of 5 bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor. Many original features in this amazing home, believed to date back to 1810. The land was first deeded to a William Powell in 1796. The huge elevated porch that surrounds three sides of the home would benefit from renovation and would be fantastic once restored. There is a tennis court to enjoy during those warm summer days. Home being sold 'as is'. Potential to develop the surrounding land subject to approvals. Buyer to carry out their own due diligence.

Here is some food for thought for those sellers looking to put there home on the market and reduce some stress from the get go.  What if you got a home inspection done before your home hits the market?  I think this is a great idea for those clients who would like to get a jump start on any problems that may come out during a home inspection with a buyer.

 

Most home owners prep their homes by typically stagging and de-cluttering which is a good start but what if you took this one step further?  A home inspection could prove beneficial to the home owner to take care of a few things before the sign goes onto the front lawn by fixing a few select things on the report such as shingles on the roof, a few rotten deck boards and redirecting downspouts away from the home.

 

Yes, the inspection will cost you some money but it will be money well spent especially if the buyers are first time home buyers.  They can become overwhelmed with the list of repairs needed even if they are small ones they all add up.  If you can tick off some of these items before hand you are ahead of the game and feel confident that when the home inspection does happen you have done your part and have listed your property accurately.

November 2017

 

As a realtor we get this question all the time and my answer depends on variables such as condition of competing inventory, whether it's hot, cold or neutral and the seller's return on investment.  Many sellers put way too much money into fixing up their homes for sale.  Some of these repairs a buyer will never notice.  Some buyers want a fixer upper but these are people who generally want to repaint, replace a faucet and maybe repaint or replace the kitchen cabinet doors and hardware.  Flippers and contractors will want the homes where they can take it down to the studs and make a profit when completed.  

 

Here is a list of 10 minimum improvements to make before selling your home:

 

1. Patch holes and cracks in walls and ceilings.

2. Fix all broken appliances and HVAC systems.

3. Repair leaky faucets.

4. Replace worn or stained carpet.

5. Repaint dark or maked walls with neutral paint.

6. Replace broken window glass.

7. Repair the roof.

8. Change out any dated light fixtures and ceiling fans.

9. Fix any code violations

10. Replace old drapes and window coverings.
