When you’re looking for the right Oakville realtor and are about to put your home on the market, you may be wondering what lies ahead.

When you work with Sue Heddle Homes, you’ll receive free home staging to ensure your home presents the best first impression, but as you start to have potential buyers step into your home, there are things you can do to ensure your home shows well.


Simply put, there are two ways potential buyers can view your home in person. They can either make an appointment with their real estate agent or attend an open house, where your home is open to anyone to come through and look.

Home sellers who have pets at home can have a hard time imagining the negative attitudes that potential home buyers may have against a beloved furry family member. But if you want to get the best price for your home, you should consider these factors that may influence the sale of your home when you have a dog, a cat or other types of pets at home.


Unpredictable Reactions

Even if you consider your pet to be well behaved, it is a lot to ask of them to be calm and welcoming while people they don’t know arrive unexpectedly at your house.  You really can’t predict what your pet might do, and as such, their behaviour can turn home buyers away.


Fear or Nervousness

Pets can make some people very uncomfortable. As a result, it may cause them to shorten a showing or to not really look at all the features of the home with an open mind.

What To Do With Pets When Your House Is On The Market?

While this can be hard and frustrating for pet owners to hear, removing pets from the home,...

Change is just about the only thing you can really count on, and the real estate market is no different. As we battle inflation and higher interest rates, the real estate market in Halton and across the GTA has started to cool off. 


Many economists have suggested we are entering a buyer’s market, which means that buyers are in a more advantageous position because the number of listings are greater than the number of buyers. Homes tend to sit on the market longer and there can be a softening of selling prices.

With over a decade of experience in the real estate market, Sue Heddle Homes has successfully supported clients in a buyer or a seller’s market. With award winning marketing tools and expert local knowledge, people wanting to sell their homes can still get good results, as long as they choose the right agent, like Sue Heddle!

Hockey Cares is back! Due to the global pandemic, we haven’t been able to do our hockey exchange since 2019. However, we are so thrilled to be planning an exchange this year! 

I founded Hockey Cares, a project of True North Aid, with the mission of connecting youth through a shared love of hockey. Starting in 2017, the Hockey Cares team and I have coordinated an exchange with Oakville and Attawapiskat bantam hockey teams. Attawapiskat youth travel to Oakville in July, and the Oakville youth fly up to Attawapiskat in November to learn from their new friends, play hockey, and experience a new culture.
 
Recently Elite Level Hockey did a story on Hockey Cares. Here are some quotes from a recent article: 

“I agree, I wasn’t sure about the program before I went,” Leah said. “As you go through the program — especially when they came here — I thought it was really, cool. It was one of the highlights...
