Nick's Corner

The trend continues into 2022 2021 was a unique year for so many reasons - from my perspective, the one constant throughout was the strength of the housing market; which I anticipate being the case for 2022.   Canadian home prices rose by more than 17% in 2021 but listings ended the year at an all-time low, according to December data released by the Canadian Real Estate Association on Monday YQG continued to be an afforable option (compared to the rest of the Province) and the Bank of Canada kept interest rates low for those looking to finance - not to mention Canada's immigration policy and the exodus from GTA to affordable cities like Windsor is very real. I could fill the page with pro's and con's related to each stage of life and the state of our country, but they won't speak to your unique needs.  From being a first time home buyer to a multiple property landloard, many pawns changed in 2021 that will affect us into 2022 and beyond .  With a career of experience as my tool belt, the market speaks a language that I understand - continuing to make all your moves the right move is my commitment to you and personal resolution!

Spotlight on Lighting The bathroom is often the first place we go to at the start of the day, and the last one before we go to bed. When done right, the bathroom lighting should help us feel good and ready for the day, as well as help us relax and wind down for the night. To set the right ambience with lighting, some options include pendants, wall lamps and ceiling fixtures. Daily routine tasks require lighting for accuracy and effectiveness so pay attention to shadows in the room as well as when to install warm bulbs or cooler bright white iridescent blubs. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind when planning for bathroom lighting: Vanity lights mounted either above or on both sides of the mirror will prevent shadows from falling on the face. Have a light over the bathtub and/or shower to help you wash and groom. If possible, go for lights with dimmers so that you can easily adjust the brightness in the bathroom according to mood and use. The finishes of the fixtures do not all have to match!  Black pendants at the sink can mix with a chrome fixture over the bathtub - choose for function and fashion :) Turn up the glam factor in your bathroom with a statement light, like I often do by using a pendant or chandelier! *The photos above are actual projects * Let my experience work for you as a consultant for all your housing needs!
