DO YOUR FALL FIREPLACE SERVICING NOW!


Summer has ended and Fall is right around the corner. Many people at this time of the year rely on their fireplaces to keep them when the colder weather arrives. However, before using your fireplace, always make sure that it has been professionally serviced. Your fireplace should be checked, examined and cleaned regularly before winter is back. You should schedule an annual inspection of both the fireplace and the chimney every Spring to keep it in good working order. Often owners neglect servicing their fireplaces annually but this is very important for them to do.

It is a maintenance issue but also a safety precaution, so it is strongly recommended to carry out this procedure.

As Property Managers, we deal with this issue all time. We encourage home owners to service their fireplaces on a regular basis. If you have a wood fireplace you must remove all dust, debris and ashes accumulated in your fireplace and have the chimney cleaned as well. There are available cleaning tools on the market that you can purchase if you want to do the cleaning yourself but it is always recommended to use a professional in this area.

Prevention is the best method with your fireplace. How often you use your fireplace can determine how often it should be serviced. The more you use it, the more build up in the chimney so the more often it should be looked at.

Practicing safety measures will help avoid serious safety issues and other hazards that could damage your home.

The skilled professionals will check your fireplace for any cracks, structural damage and gas leaks that may not be noticeable to you. It is advisable to call these experts, especially if you don’t have the knowledge on how to clean and inspect your fireplace. This will be money well spent from your pocket to assure the safety of your family when using the fireplace.

 

 

 

Professionals will also give you tips on how to keep your fireplace clean and maintained.


DO YOUR PART!…GO GREEN!



GET RID OF OLD CARPETS BEFORE YOU RENT OUT YOUR PROPERTY!


When your carpets look old, stained and thread-bare, these are the important signs that it is time to remove them and replace them with either new flooring or new carpets. Regular carpet cleaning can add life to your carpets and asking everyone to take off their shoes before stepping on the carpets can also help. Spot cleaning instead of shampooing the entire carpet is also way to keep them in good condition longer.

But, if your carpets are full of stains and looking well worn and old, replace them immediately especially if this is a rental property.

Keep your carpets in good shape or replace them immediately.

Your renters will always notice a badly damaged carpet immediately and most often will not rent your property. You have several options when replacing your carpets, you can install laminated flooring at a very reasonable price once you remove your old, dated carpets and this will update your property tremendously and can even increase your properties rental value. Also, rather than replacing the carpet, check the flooring underneath and if it is hardwood you can simply sand the wood back into shape. Sometimes there is beautiful ceramic tiling under wall to wall carpets so check first. It can give your property a fresh face-lift that will make it appealing to potential renters.

Even the most expensive carpets should be replaced after a maximum of 10 years but with the wear and tear on a rental property it would be more likely needed to replace the carpets at least every 5 years. Utilize scatter rugs to keep your carpets in better shape. 

 


BEARS AND GARBAGE…..OH BOY!!!!


Always completely secure your garbage in a very tightly closed garbage container.

If you live in a remote area, never use simple garbage bags as this will surely attract not only bears to your property but all kinds of animals. At Orca Realty, we receive many calls from our tenants residing in the British Properties and parts of North Vancouver to advise us they have had bears roaming around the property. This can be a common complaint if you do not secure your garbage properly. Generally the bears are simply hungry and are forced to come closer and closer to humans to find food for survival. They tend to wander out when we are asleep but there have been many reports of bear sightings in the day as well. With their strong sense of smell, they are attracted to human food and the easiest access is our garbage cans.bears-in-free-1394637-1280x960

But bears seeking out your garbage is not the only problem among home owners and property renters, it is often the danger you can unwittingly put yourself in. If you come upon a bear suddenly DO NOT approach the bear. Most people do not know what to do when they come into contact with an animal that size and they panic. Often the bear can be foraging for food for their hungry cubs they have left alone close by. These are enormous, powerful animals that are usually protecting their young, so again NEVER approach the bear.

People living in highly isolated areas are mostly affected but with global warming, there are many bears coming closer to cities to find food to survive.

Avoid a tragedy by keeping your garbage cans not only tightly secured but also in a covered secure area where bears cannot get at the cans.

Use your garburator to dispose of left-over foods like meat, fish, fruits and vegetables rather than put them outside in the garbage. Check to make sure your garbage containers do not spill out, any stray garbage should be picked up right away. Try to make a habit of checking on your garbage cans at night when the bears usually come out.

If it is possible to put garbage in metal containers that have padlocks, it is highly recommended. But as mentioned before, the best preventative is to build a secure location to store the cans in. Also, deodorize the garbage cans after they are emptied with a strong ammonia cleaner that will aid to lessen the odor.

The key to eliminate the bear problem is to properly disposal of your garbage.


PRICE YOUR HOME RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!


The Luxury Vancouver rental homes market is very competitive and sometimes the difference between landing a AAA tenant and having a vacant house comes down to properly pricing your home.

VIP tenants are not nearly as plentiful as tenants looking for lower priced properties, so you must do the most to attract them.

This begins with reasonable pricing.

To get an idea of what your competition is charging you should look to one of the major online advertising mediums like Craigslist or Kijiji. Start to comb through various advertisements and be honest of your assessment of how your property stacks up.Get a list of 5 to 10 similar homes with the same number of bedrooms, square footage, area and age and start to break down the similarities between these homes and yours.

Look at all the detailed information such as amenities, number of parking spaces and storage. Look at the general ambiance of the homes and compare with your home.

If your Luxury Vancouver apartment for rent has an extra parking spot than a similar property than maybe you can charge an extra $100 or $200 a month. However, if your home is on a busy street, and a comparable home is one a nice quiet street then you may have to subtract $300 when matching up head to head. The point of this exercise, is that the more unbiased you are during this process, the more apt you are to discover the true market value of your home.

Consulting a Vancouver property manager is usually the best place to start regarding pricing.

Be smart….leave it to the professionals to help you!
