January is a great time for planning ahead.
It’s also a great time for looking back, and reviewing the past year’s challenges and successes.
During the past year at McGarr Realty, our expert teams improved skills, helped old friends sell their homes, helped new residents find homes in great Niagara communities, and made new friends along the way. We also attended industry conferences, expanded our licensed team, and brought our social media skills up to date to enhance our client services.
What we didn’t do, it seems, was sit still!
Truly, we think 2018 was our busiest year yet – and it shows in the numbers of families we helped with their Niagara real estate needs.
Turning our gaze to the future, our McGarr Realty team is looking to produce even more good things than we did in 2018. Think more listings, more cheerleading for neighbourhoods throughout St. Catharines, NOTL and Niagara, more sales, and most importantly, more people helped.
That’s our plan going forward.
If your plans this year include buying or selling a home in Niagara, McGarr Realty’s team of experts would love to add you to their list of people to help.
If there’s some downsizing, or upsizing, in your future, now is a great time to start planning a sale or purchase strategy. Meet with one of our expert team members and set your timeline to make small repairs, freshen your décor and de-clutter… and before you know it, that “For Sale” sign will be flipped to “Sold.”
Speaking of de-cluttering, if there’s a move of any kind in your future, winter is a great time to tackle the re-organization of your possessions. While the weather keeps you indoors, spend a little time every week sorting, donating, and simplifying your belongings to make the eventual packing job that much easier.
In fact, McGarr Realty team members advise on taking advantage of the winter lifestyle slowdown, to prep for a move by tackling some of the most unpleasant jobs, such as cleaning out the attic, basement and closets, and placing into storage large items not currently in use, like boats or vacation trailers.
The sooner you’re ready to list your home or begin packing, the sooner you’ll be on the move to a brighter future!
Our McGarr Realty team can’t wait to help you reach your goal!
