Fall Decor Tips to Welcome in the New Season

I hope I’m not the only one who gets excited for the excuse to redecorate for a new season! Fall is one of my favourites with the changing leaves, cozy fabrics, yummy warm drinks, plus Thanksgiving and Halloween fun - what’s not to love? The fall season is also the start of spending more time in our homes as we cozy up before snowy winter weather begins, which makes it the perfect time to switch up the decor!

 

Income Properties

Billionaire Andrew Carnegie once said that 90% of millionaires got their wealth by investing in Real Estate. So I’m sure you’re wondering, how does one become wealthy in Real Estate? The simplest answer would be, Investment Properties! Investment Properties are defined as being a property that you own that’s sole purpose is to be used to make a profit.

As the market shifts to longer closes and less frequent/ aggressive bidding wars, the decision really comes down to, what is best for you?

What does it mean for a house to have good bones? It’s a phrase tossed around quite a bit in real estate but what does it actually mean? In simplest terms it means that the integrity of the house is good for the next X amount of years, which is especially important if you intend to make renovations or additions to your home without running into costly repairs. 

So what exactly are you looking for in a home to find these “good bones”!

Top 5 Tips For Buying Pre-Construction

I know we have all been hearing nothing but craziness about the Real Estate market the last two plus years.

The Decision of Buying Existing or Pre-Construction

With the red-hot market we’ve experienced over the last few years so many homeowners are grappling with the limited inventory available in a sellers market. To that I say, “have you considered pre-construction?”. It is often a preconceived notion that newer = more expensive, however when buying with pre-construction you have many advantages just as you have when buying an existing home.

6 Reasons To List Your Home Over The Holidays

There are many many reasons why it is a myth that you should be wary of listing over the holidays. Truthfully, there are many benefits to listing over the holiday season as opposed to waiting it out until the spring market.

Who Is Edith Dacosta 

 

 

An Entrepreneur, mother of 2 boys, mini-golden doodle lover, a passion for boating and cancer conqueror. In 2010 I decided to become a Realtor. I knew that I could use my Entrepreneur Skills, Business Knowledge and honest advice to make Real Estate decisions. My “LIFE” experience has funneled me to navigate my clients. It includes being available for the client when they need me, by answering my own phone, by returning calls, messages and emails promptly and  to stand by my client through each step of that buying or selling process. My goal is to make the purchase or sale smooth, to relieve the stress and bring out the happiness they should be feeling. Real Estate is my passion.

My style of transparency allows me to be surrounded with people who have skills in areas that can benefit my clients, and industry leaders that are givers and not takers gives.

The Real Estate Industry changed, especially on how we buy and sell homes. Our tools of the Industry have changed and most importantly our logic to finalizing transactions have been impacted. We all want to be considerate of each other’s space and decisions; but the need for Real Estate is essential. My ambition to collaborate and stay connected will allow me to grow in 2020.

My thinking and willingness to take charge of 2020 has embraced the word of the year: CONNECTION.
