Toronto’s ceaselessly upward trending housing market is not quite at the U.S. border, but it is almost there. The regional municipality of Niagara is home to one of the hottest real estate markets in the country, and certainly in Ontario. The sales in dollars in April of 2016 were up 36.2 per cent from the previous year. As housing prices in the Greater Toronto Area become less and less affordable, there is a push West into the Golden Horseshoe and Niagara region, which is going to continue to see the demand for residential real estate in Niagara skyrocket. As homeowners, the residents of Niagara should be doing everything in their power, and within their budgets, to help increase the value of their homes. This includes home renovations and home improvement projects. This is where Landmark Home Solutions can help. Landmark is a family owned and operated business that has provided Ontario with high-quality door and window designs and solutions for decades. Started by local brothers Brian and Steve Mason, it has been providing its valued clients with the best quality doors and windows on the market, and helping to increase property value in the process, since 1987.
The reason we are able to help our clients increase their property value is because new doors and windows are one of the most popular ways of helping add value to your home. Our clients are often surprised how much of a difference a few cosmetic improvements like new doors and windows can make when someone is interested in purchasing their house.
Your doors are a large part of your home’s street appeal and they speak volumes about the character and overall quality of your house. Your doors are the foremost part of making a first impression on prospective homebuyers and inform their opinion on the majority of your house. Old, dilapidated doors are unattractive to people purchasing a new home, even if everything else is in top shape.
The same goes for your windows. Contemporary, energy-efficient windows have become the new standard in 21st century homes and they are manufactured in a range of different materials, including aluminum, wood, vinyl and fibreglass. At Landmark Home Solutions, we custom make windows to fit any specification. Although windows tend to be considered more of a functional, rather than a structural update, according to data from IsoldMyHouse.com, an investment of $10,000 in new windows is capable of increasing your home’s value by roughly $8,500. When you add in the decreased energy costs throughout the life of the windows, the return on investment on new, energy-efficient windows starts to make real sense.
Whether you need new doors or windows put in as part of a renovation or would like to add value to your home in preparation for sale, Landmark Home Solutions provides its clients with unmatched quality, second-to-none customer service and a level of customization that is hard to find anywhere else in the industry. Contact us today and discover how our windows and doors can help you get the most out of the resale of your home.
