5 Ways to Make Your Move Easier on Your Pet

Moving can be a stressful process, especially for pets who don’t understand what’s happening. Luckily, there are steps you can take to help reduce your pet’s stress and anxiety during a move.

Keep track of important items.
Designate a specific box for your pet’s food, medicine, grooming essentials, toys, litter, and anything else they will need before you finish relocating and get the new house unpacked.

Vet records.
If you’re planning to change veterinarians when you move, be sure to obtain a copy of your pet’s medical records.

Minimize their exposure.
Packing and moving your belongings can be very stressful for your pet. Keep them in the other room or ask a family member to take your pet for a few days while the move is in full swing.

Don’t rush them.
It may take your pet a while to adjust to their new home. Make the transition easier by placing their bed, blankets, toys, and food in one room. Let them become accustomed to that room before you gradually introduce them to other rooms in the house.

Update your contact information.
Update your pet’s tags and microchip with your new address and contact information as soon as possible. That way, should they get lost, you’ll be easy to find again.

Let’s go to the EX!

August 16 – September 2, 2019

The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) is Canada’s largest community event and one of the top 5 agricultural fairs in North America.

Founded in 1879 as the Toronto Industrial Exhibition, the CNE has enjoyed a distinguished history as a showcase of the nation.  People came to experience the latest innovations in technology and commercial products, to enjoy the popular entertainers of the time, and to engage in a collective community celebration.

Although the CNE has changed significantly over the years, it continues to be one of Ontario’s great annual traditions and an event that offers substantial entertainment value for money.

Taking place over the 18 days leading up to and including Labour Day, it is affectionately embraced as an end-of-summer ritual by more than 1.5 million visitors annually, visitors who reflect the rich diversity of Toronto and the region.

Highlights of the annual CNE include:

Entertainment

Concerts

The Farm

Food

Shopping

Rides

Games

Kids’ World (a green space featuring attractions designed for children 10 & under)

Exhibits

Park Entertainers & interactive experiences

A three-day Air Show (on Labour Day Weekend)

& much more!

4 Tips to Help Sell Your Home Faster

If your goal is sell your home faster, renovations can help move the needle. Buyers are attracted to a space that feels new and modern, so even small upgrades can go a long way – especially if it’s been decades since the last home update.

If you plan to put your house on the market, consider making these small but impactful updates before you list.

Fresh paint: A fresh coat of paint, both inside and outside the home, can brighten up the space and make it feel new again. Avoid dark paint as it can make the home feel smaller. Instead, opt for a neutral colour. It shows nicely and allows potential buyers to better picture their own furniture and style imprint in the space.

Kitchen facelift: Upgrading the appliances, countertops, cabinets and floors can help make your home feel new. Sticking to a budget? Consider updating existing cabinetry with a fresh coat of paint. Alternatively, if you’re looking to splurge on something that will give you a good return on your investment, upgrade to modern appliances.

Open concept: This is a huge trend in new homes, and many older homes have too many walls. Find where an open-concept floor plan makes sense and if possible, tear down a wall or two to open up the area. Blending the family room and kitchen is a great option, especially for prospective homebuyers who love to entertain.

Smart technology: Installing smart technology can be a huge selling point for potential buyers, as it helps with maintenance and security. Consider installing smart lights, thermostat, security cameras or a doorbell.

These small changes can go a long way in terms of sprucing up your home to attract buyers. It could even lead to significant gains – so now that you’re a renovation pro, you can buy yourself a fixer upper!
