Before summer begins, clean out the garage and think of unique ways to use shelving units and other organization systems. If you do have that much stuff, think about using it as a creative storage area as an alternative to decluttering and cutting down on what you own.

The summer is a great time to reassess your home security system. Look up a local professional to evaluate what you already have in place, make sure all the windows are covered with windows or blinds, ensure that your home’s doors and windows can’t be easily penetrated, or install a new security system altogether that can be easily accessible via smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

Inspect your roof for any shingles that were lost or damaged during winter from the ground up. Bear in mind that the summer sun can damage roof shingles and the ones that are cracked or loose need to be replaced. Keep in mind the age of the roof covering, if it's older, you will need to start budgeting for a replacement.

After a long cold winter, spring in all its glory is here. The only downside sunshine highlights your leaf-filled gutters, cracked sidewalks, and the dead plants in the flower beds. Now is the time to check for loose or leaky gutters. Improper drainage can lead to water in the basement or crawl space. Ensure that the downspouts drain away from the foundation.

For 2021, we expect most living rooms to have a cozy and relaxing vibe. That’s because our living rooms have transformed into multifunctional places of refuge during challenging times.

Because we spent so much time indoors throughout 2020, we’re sure that dreaming about the outdoors became one of your daily habits. In 2021, we hope to really show our appreciation of outdoor spaces and this can be done by highlighting the balcony, patio, backyard, terrace, veranda, you name it. Make sure you incorporate the outside element into your home staging.

We have two golden rules when it comes to home staging. One, depersonalize your living space and remove personal family photos and personal decor. The goal is to have potential buyers easily imagine themselves living there. Two, make sure you display a clean and tidy interior. Eliminate bulky objects from view and make sure the beds are well-made. This is to show potential buyers that they can move around easily.

Because most real estate platforms have more or less transitioned to a fully online space, it is key to invest in professional photography. As the old adage says, a picture is worth a thousand words. Those professional photos will give potential buyers a very good look into your residential unit, inclusive of surrounding views and other key features.

Water is a common problem in the basement space. We suggest installing a French drain system around the house’s perimeter. This will prevent water from seeping through the concrete slab. Don’t forget to add insulation and an HVAC system to keep the basement dry.

If you’re interested in getting more space out of your already small living space, then the best area to start in is the basement. We suggest opting for vinyl or tile flooring with a rug on top for an element of softness, a fresh coat of paint on the walls, and adding recessed lighting.

We have found ourselves in yet another lockdown and that means we might have some extra time on our hands. This is an opportune time to roll up our sleeves and get started on that home-edition to-do list. You might have some pieces of furniture that are looking drab or are sitting unused. These pieces could use a simple upgrade such as a fresh coat of paint, playing around with patterns adding little decorative details, and swapping out handles can give your home an easy style refresh without having to do major renovations.

The end of times has become a recurring theme of current times. With this in mind, it wouldn’t hurt to make a DIY emergency kit, which will usually consist of a first-aid kit, masks, hand sanitizer, flashlight, signaling gear, bottled water, and granola bars.

Did you know that 18-hour cities and 15-minute cities are concepts that are transitioning into the mainstream? An 18-hour city is a medium-sized city which is less intense, low cost of living, and has attractive amenities. Kitchener-Waterloo, London and Ottawa are three Ontario examples.


A 15-minute city offers residents access to daily necessities – groceries, drug stores, libraries and schools – within a short walk or bike ride. According to the Globe and Mail, only 23% of urban Canadians live in this type of area.

There is light at the end of the tunnel with approved COVID vaccines making the headlines, but many Canadian employers are rethinking their entire workflow.
