Downtown living is especially exciting in Winnipeg at this time because of the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights that is currently being built, expected to launch in 2013. Although it is still in the construction phase, it is already proving to be an innovative work of architecture, situated in downtown Winnipeg at the Forks. The CMHR will be both an iconic and sustainable landmark; once completed, it will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver Certified Building to promote energy efficiency and support for the environment.

A $310 million project, the purpose of the CMHR is primarily to increase awareness and understanding of human rights. The museum will function as a place of learning as well as an instigator for discussion, and therefore will be ideal for children, youth and adults alike. The aim of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is to act as a catalyst for change, inspiring visitors to take action and promote social change in defense of human rights.

Winnipeg is well-known as a cultural mecca. The city is interested in bringing people together and creating strong community. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is yet another way for Winnipeg to assist in building an identity for Canadians everywhere. This museum will also encourage understanding of past, present and future national and global issues so as to prevent the focus from being too focused on any one exhibit. It will serve to help visitors recognize the vital importance of examining human rights issues, teaching all visitors to learn from past mistakes and to work together to find solutions for current concerns.

With 47,000 square feet of exhibit space, the Winnipeg-based museum will feature 12 permanent “zones” or galleries which will highlight Canadian issues among other historical conflicts and ongoing struggles around the world. The entire 12-storey building will span across 260,000 square feet in order to cover a variety of human rights issues.

Check out the Canadian Museum for Human Rights website

Not only will the museum be an amazing tourist attraction, estimated to draw in 250,000 visitors each year, but it will also be a place that everyone can visit to learn about human rights in Canada and around the world. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights even has a section on their website inviting anyone to share their story, which may be featured on their website so that people around the globe can partake in the educative role of the Winnipeg-based museum, even if they cannot physically visit it themselves.

Check out the CMHR website at www.humanrightsmuseum.ca to learn more about the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. For those living in Winnipeg, you can take a walk down to the Forks to see the construction of the building itself! It already has the makings of a masterpiece.

Home Staging Quick-Tip #4: Flooring in your Home

Smart home-sellers understand that, when it comes time to sell their house or condo, getting it into ‘Show-Home” condition is an important step towards getting top dollar and selling quickly.  Buyers traditionally spend about 15 minutes in the home before moving on to the next one.  As a home seller, you want to make sure that your home appears to be as problem-free as possible, so that the buyers come back for that all-important ‘Second Look”.

Flooring is an important consideration when showing your house or condo.  Here are a few highlights of the attached video

Carpeting

Is your carpeting worn and out-dated, or just a little dirty?  Will a deep cleaning shampoo provide the results, or do you need to replace torn and worn areas.

Vinyl

Is your vinyl flooring modern, or dates the home back to the 70’s (or beyond).  good quality vinyl can be installed for a reasonably low cost.

Hardwood Flooring

Are there hardwoods under the carpets, and would it make sense to expose them, and perhaps refinish them?

Need a great residential or commercial cleaning company in Winnipeg?

Need a great residential or commercial cleaning company in Winnipeg?

As a real estate agent in Winnipeg, I understand and appreciate the value of a good referral.  Over the past 8 years, I’ve had the great fortune to meet and work with many high-quality professionals, including lawyers, movers, mortgage providers and cleaners.

Recently my home-buying clients were looking at a high-end luxury property, and were disappointed to see that the owner had not bothered to have the home cleaned prior to the showings.  If the home owner had been my clients, I could have recommended the services of a fabulous residential cleaning service in Winnipeg, who would have made the home more presentable.   I’ve used and recommended this cleaning service many times, here is why:

Trained and bonded employees

Their staff are bonded, and receive extensive and continuing training in order to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.

Residential cleaning for all occasions in Winnipeg

They can handle any type of residential cleaning you need.  Want to clean the house or condo for a special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary or to get it ready for the Open House?  They can do that.  Need a regular, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly cleaning?  They will schedule regular home-cleaning visits, leaving you to enjoy the day.

Commercial Clean-ups

If you own or manage an office complex, warehouse or other type of business, they can handle your cleaning needs.  They can even handle your post-construction clean-ups.

Aiming to have wildly satisfied clients

They engage in customer follow-up, checking to make sure all their clients are ‘wildly satisfied’ with their service.

If you’re looking for a residential or commercial cleaning company, contact me for a referral.  You can call me direct on my cell at (204) 333-2202 or e-mail me at [email protected]

.Home Staging Quick-Tip #3: Depersonalizing your home before selling

In part 3 of the series on Home Staging by Remax, we take a look at the need to depersonalize the home.  Since the owner has likely lived in the home for a number of years, it has taken on his personality, displaying his photographs, trophies and furniture, along with his personal choices in colors and accents.

A buyer, coming to view the home, needs to be able to ‘visualize’ themselves in the home, and this become difficult if the buyer is overwhelmed with a multitude of personal items exhibiting the sellers personal life and tastes.

In order to help the potential buyer in their decision, home sellers are well advised to:

  • Remove family photos and keepsakes
  • Remove personal trophies
  • Remove potentially offensive items  (Hunting trophies such as bear-skins, etc)

When you are ready to sell your home, please call me first…  Bo Kauffmann  204-333-2202  or email me at [email protected]

Home Staging Tip #2: Curb Appeal
photocredit to Chechi Pe photostream on flickr

The old saying “You never get a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression” is especially true in real estate. Whether you’re selling a house or a condo, in a hot or a slow market, as the seller you want to make a great first impression. Home Staging can help with this, and improving curb appeal is a vital part. Quite often, buyers will do a ‘drive-by’ of your property, to gauge whether they want to call their own agent and invest their time in viewing your house or condo further. If during this drive-by they see things they don’t like, the buyers may just decide to keep drivin’.

Home Staging your Curb Appeal

At the very least, home sellers should make sure that the exterior of the home is well repaired. Shingles are in good shape, no damaged siding and no flaking paint. And home staging should not stop with the house itself. Shrubs should be manicured, lawns cut, fertilized and weeded and sidewalks cleaned.

Winter Staging

In the winter, sidewalks should be shoveled to the front and around the side of the house. If you have a deck or patio, it should also be cleared of snow, so that buyers can see what they’re getting. Take down any decorations (Christmas, Halloween, New Years etc) as soon as that particular festivity is over.

5 Web Sites and Services to make your online life easier

5 of my favorite and most important online services

.

5 Web Sites and Services to make your online life easier
Photo credit to Pat Scullion on flickr

The other day, one of my real estate competitors called me for some advice about websites and online lead generation.  He knew that I am a big believer in internet promotions, websites and blogging to generate new business.  Over the past few years, I’ve learned a few things, and don’t mind sharing what I’ve learned.  So here are some of the top websites and services that make MY online life a little easier:

1) Password Vault and Generator

Each time we sign into a new website or service, we’re asked to create a name and password.  To protect yourself, each website and/or service should have a unique password.  But with dozens, and even hundreds of different sites, how do you keep all the passwords and usernames safe, organized and remembered?  The answer is LastPass, named thus because its the ‘Last Password’ you’ll ever need.  They have browser extensions for most popular browsers to make your life easier.  When you come across a new website, you can generate a random password with the click of one button, and then save the results.  When you go BACK to that website, LastPass will automatically fill in the username and password for you.  So the only password you’ll need to remember is the one you need to sign into LastPass itself.  It works on both Mac and PC, and it’s FREE.

 

2)  Back up your files with ZipCloud

Do you create a lot of original content, files, videos, documents?  Hate the thought of losing those in a computer crash?  One way to safe-keep them is to back them up ‘into the cloud’.  ZipCloud offers a FREE version of their service, although it’s very limited in the amount of storage you get.  But for around $50 bucks a year, you can back up 250 GB of files, and then access those files from any other computer.  Oh yeah, dont forget to password protect it with LastPass.

 

3)  Share Files with others via Dropbox

Another free service that actually quite valuable is Dropbox.  It installs in your browser bar, and you can drop files, videos, pictures, documents..whatever, right into it.  Then you can access it from any other computer.  Save a file on your MAC and then access it on your PC…  or better yet, save a file on your own computer, and allow another person to access just THAT file, or several folders or whatever you want to share.

 

4)  Free Internet Press Releases via PRLog

Press Releases aren’t just for the big companies any more.  Want to advertise a special in-store event?  Want to brag about a new product? Celebrating a business mile-stone?  Issue a Press Release!!  There are several big effective online press-release services, such as PrWeb for example.  Problem is, most of the charge a fee.   My choice for online PR:  is PRLog.  In order the remain totally free, they embed advertising in your press release, but I say….so what?  It helps drive traffic to your website, and their press releases get good exposure.

 

5) Spread your blog posts via triberr

If you’re serious about using the ‘net to promote your business or services, you should be writing a blog.  But how do you get your posts noticed?  Try triberr, a free service by bloggers, for bloggers.  It allows you to create ‘tribes’ of like-minded bloggers, who connect their twitter accounts, or facebook pages, and then promote each others blog posts via those services.  If you haven’t tried triberr, come join my tribe by going here.  You’ll end up promoting MY blog posts initially, but you’ll learn how to create your own tribe in the process and can do that anytime.

 

What’s YOUR favorite site or service?  Share your comments please…I’m always anxious to learn more.

Traits of a successful home stager

.

How a successful home stager can help sell your home

Erik Braunitzer of Douglas Elliman Real Estate Company.

Today’s challenging real estate market makes a successful and effective home stager critically important. One highly effective sales tactic in the Manhattan real estate market is to have a property staged appealingly for a gala party that many other real estate companies are invited to. In this way, the “word” gets out about the property and many more potential buyers are contacted about its availability. But it takes a successful home stager to set up something so elegant and detailed as a gala.

Below is a list of traits that certainly help differentiate a successful home stager from one that may not be ready for such a task.

Imagery is Everything

The way a property is initially presented will have a lasting impact on potential buyers. The image of a property and the feel of the space will impact buyers immediately. If a property does not feel good or look appealing, a buyer will be quickly turned off. A successful home stage will know how to appropriately capitalize on creating an appealing, warm and interesting presentation for a home.

 

Curiosity

A successful home stager in the Manhattan real estate market will be quite curious about the property. There are an enormous number of variations of living spaces in Manhattan. Some properties offer roof top gardens, swimming pools and doormen. The varieties and histories of the various properties are endless. A good home stager will take the unique aspects of the property into account as he or she prepares it to be shown.

 

Professionalism

Of course, a successful home stage must be very professional. There are often difficulties in preparing a property for the initial showing to other brokers and potential buyers. A home stager who loses his or her cool, or who is difficult to work with, will make the process much less enjoyable and less successful. An effective home stager will know how to get things done in an efficient manner, without impeding cooperative working relationships among all of the interested parties.

 

Sustainable Efforts and Rewards

A good home staging will yield great rewards. For example, if a home stager is being asked to prepare a home to be shown to a young couple with a baby on the way, landscaping the yard and baking chocolate chip cookies in the oven during the time of the showing will lend a sense of comfort and a feeling of home to the prospective couple. These staging techniques are affordable, sustainable and may generate quick and lucrative rewards.

 

Resourcefulness

A great home stager will also display ample amounts of resourcefulness. Many upscale homes will have a certain flare or flavor. Capitalizing on that initial style with additional appropriately matched unique pieces of furniture and artwork may increase the offer on a property by several thousand dollars. The “feel” of a home that is shown to a potential buyer will either pique a buyer’s interest or diminish it. The resourcefulness of a home stager, in acquiring and setting the stage for a successful showing with beautiful decor, can go a long way towards obtaining a lucrative offer on a property in the Manhattan real estate market.

A successful home stager will demonstrate a number of important traits when he or she is preparing a property to be shown to prospective buyers. A great home stager will be professional, resourceful and curious. He or she will also be aware that the image and context within which the buyer sees the property is critically important to the buying process. An effective home stager will also make a sustainable effort towards keeping the property in top showing condition, in order to generate lucrative financial rewards for all involved parties.

Winnipeg Centennial Concert Hall: Bring cultural experiences together

Winnipeg Centennial Concert Hall: Bring cultural experiences together

Winnipeg’s Centennial Concert Hall

.Winnipeg Centennial Concert Hall: Bring cultural experiences together

The Centennial Concert Hall of Winnipeg: 253,014 square feet of glamour, culture and architectural brilliance. After the concept was created in 1960, the project was carried out by Winnipeg architects and other international professionals until the building was complete, costing $8 million in total.

This performing arts facility seats up to a capacity of 2,305 people and is designed to expand our arts and cultural experience in Winnipeg. Attracting not only local performers and artists but also international entertainment, the Centennial Concert Hall is a monumental venue. Driving down Main Street in downtown Winnipeg, you can’t miss it: the structure is one of a kind. But it is inside the Centennial Concert Hall that the real magic happens, where, comfortable in continental-style soft seating, you can watch dance companies, musicians and more – both local and global – perform masterpieces. There are also several mural painted by Canadian artists to enjoy while you wait for the stage performance to begin.

The Centennial Concert Hall has been run by The Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation Act since June of 2005 to ensure the smooth operation and maintenance of the facility.

Home of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Manitoba Opera, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and so much more

The Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Manitoba Opera and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra all perform at the Centennial Concert Hall on a regular basis, in addition to other concerts and events. The variety of culture displayed and performed at the Centennial Concert Hall is a tribute to its vision of offering a multi-layered, world class facility.

The theatre can be rented out for commercial, charitable or conference and trade show use. Holding up to 1,500 guests, the main floor is used for all kinds of events and serves as an impressive entranceway into the Centennial Concert Hall.

The second floor of the lobby, known as the Piano Nobile, is a special space designed especially as a showcase reception area. The high ceilings and spacious floor are ideal for gatherings accommodating up to 300 people and accent the music from the grand piano situated there beautifully. This part of the Centennial Concert Hall also functions as a small art gallery.

To find out what type of performance will be featured next at the Centennial Concert Hall. You can also keep up to date on future concerts and events by “liking” the Centennial Concert Hall Facebook page or by following them on Twitter (@Concert_Hall), where they also give you the opportunity to win free tickets to shows. If you don’t end up being a lucky winner, tickets for any performance can be purchased at the Centennial Concert Hall Box Office or at any Ticketmaster location.

Home Renovations: Which home improvements give the best r.o.i.

Which home improvements give the best return on investment?

.home renovations

Home Owners often ask:  ‘Which home renovations increase the value of my house, and assure that I get ‘top-dollar’ when selling?’ While there is no hard-and-fast rule, here is a sobering statistic from the Appraisal Institute of Canada:

The Appraisal Institute of Canada compared typical costs for renovations versus the impact on a home’s selling price to come up with a “payback range” for common projects.

Bathroom reno: 75% to 100%
Kitchen reno: 75% to 100%
Installing a deck: 25% to 75%
Exterior siding: 50% to 75%
Flooring upgrade: 50% to 75%
Basement reno: 50% to 75%

 

Why do I say “sobering”?  If you look closely, you will see that none of the estimates exceed 100%.  In other words, they are suggesting that if you spend $5,000 on siding, your home’s value would only increase by between $2,500 and $3750   (50% to 75%).  On the surface, it would not seem a worthwhile investment to improve your home for the purpose of increasing it’s resale value.  So does it make sense to improve before selling?  Maybe….  depending on your answers to two major questions!

Those two major questions are 1) What is the current condition of the item which you are thinking of improving, and   2) Can you do some of the labor yourself, thereby saving money.  Lets take a look at what I mean:

1) Current Condition

On this topic my advice is “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  Lets use the example of a furnace.  If your home has a 10 yrs old, mid-efficient furnace, it should be working fine.  Replacing THAT with a brand new, $3500 H.E. unit will in most cases, not increase the value of the house by an equal or greater amount.

On the other hand, if your furnace hums and howls and is the size of a sub-compact car, buyers might be turned off from making an offer.  Installing a new, energy efficient unit would probably we a worthwhile home renovations project.  Much the same applies for most other home renovations projects:  Is the current item in good condition, or will it detract from the home?  Is the kitchen falling apart, or merely ‘dated’ in appearance.  Are carpets just a little worn, or can you see the sub-floor and notice every spot where “whiskers blew chunks”?

 

2) Home Renovations D.I.Y.

I am going to assume that the Appraisal Institute used, for its calculations, prices that included professional labor.  So the question is: how much (if anything) can you do yourself.  If you’re fairly handy, painting the interior of your home is probably one of the best home renovations projects you can tackle.  Another high-value/low-cost improvement is modernizing the lights.  Go with bright, modern lighting, such as halogen, and keep the twisty florescent bulbs for your next home.  They might save money in electricity, but their slow start-up and dim lighting don’t help sell a house.  In any case, completing home renovations by yourself will drastically improve the return-on-investment numbers, provided the renos are done well.  Buyers and their agents can spot poorly done D.I.Y. home renovations, and the result is lower offers and a slower selling home.

So, keeping the above rules in mind, Home Renovations done right can and will improve your sales price.

Entertainment, education and enlightenment all rolled into one: the Manitoba Museum has it all! A not-for-profit heritage and science centre, the Manitoba Museum provides an enriching experience for all visitors. It features a number of collections in its heritage galleries, many interactive multimedia shows in the Planetarium and dozens of hands-on exhibits in the special Science Gallery.

The museum details a chronology of Manitoba and world history that goes back millions of years, all neatly packaged into nine interpretive galleries. With more than two million artifacts and specimens available to showcase, the museum is continually rotating its collections so as to have something new for repeat visitors to enjoy. The museum also includes three dimensional walk-through galleries to create a lasting impression of the vast amount of history that we as a society have knowledge of.

Interactive displays provide fun for the whole family

Kids will find the Planetarium to be a real treat. The domed structure is designed to give the illusion of being outside at night and acts as a beautiful illustration of the night sky. Children (and adult space enthusiasts!) can learn all about the latest astronomical discoveries, in addition to legends surrounding constellations and scientific information about the night sky in general. With more than 200 projectors, the Manitoba Museum has the capabilities to show visitors the night sky from anywhere in the world, as well as invite visitors to get an idea of how each of the planets looks up close.

 

Of equal excitement for children, the Science Gallery allows them to play scientist by conducting experiments on a number of interactive displays. The Science Gallery is a great opportunity for students in grade school to learn about important scientific discoveries while they test them out themselves. Each exhibit includes information outlining how to conduct the experiment, as well as a background of the scientific explanation for it. Touring the Science Gallery will make for an afternoon that your child will never forget!

.

Celebrating the past, present and future at the Manitoba Museum

Since its inception in 1968, the Manitoba Museum has undergone numerous changes in keeping with its mandate to share new ideas and revolutions in science and technology. Its three-way mission focuses on Knowledge, Collections and Preservation, and Interpretation and Communication. Combining these three core values, the Manitoba Museum helps educate visitors while simultaneously encouraging them to question the way the universe works.

The Manitoba Museum is dedicated to involving school programs and provides a teachers guide and resources section on the website, www.manitobamuseum.ca. Day camps are also available for children in grades 1 – 6 during the spring and summer.

Whether you have children or not, it is worth a visit to downtown Winnipeg to explore everything the Manitoba Museum has to offer. You can choose to explore the museum galleries, Planetarium and Science Gallery on your own or with a guided group or audio tour. No one is too old to make new discoveries at the Manitoba Museum!

Selling your house or condo? 8 truths home stagers know

8 things Home Stagers know

.

home selling
photo credit to Real Estaging on flickr

Have you noticed that home stagers are becoming more popular?  More people are hiring them when they want to get a really good price for their house or condo.  The reason is because home stagers know what buyers want and they can help you pay attention to the details of your home so that buyers will fall in love with it.

Here are some of the things that home stagers know:

1.     Buyers fall in love with their first impressions. If the front of your house looks great you have likely seen people drive by over and over again when there is a “For sale” sign in front of the house.  They finally come to see the inside for themselves because they’ve fallen in love with the outside.  If you see people drive by once and then never see them again, you know that the front of your house needs some work.  Water and mow the grass regularly, add some potted plants or some flowers, clean the driveway – you’ll find these small details can make a big difference.

2.     Buyers want to feel like they could move in immediately. Wild or overly bright paint colors do not appeal to everyone.  You may love the zebra border along the top of the walls but it is not everyone’s taste so get rid of it.  Paint the walls a neutral color that most people could live with.

3.     Buyers love light. If the walls are too dark the room will feel cave-like to most people so make sure walls are painted a light color.  Also, replace heavy drapes with lighter sheers and raise the blinds to let in the daylight.

4.     Buyers feel better about a home that not only looks clean but smells clean. Make sure that you keep the house clean, as if the Queen of England could be dropping by at any minute.  Remember that people will be looking in cupboards and closets so these should be clean, too.  And above all, it should smell clean.  If the place smells clean, people tend to believe that it is cleaner than appearances suggest.

5.     Buyers do not like clutter. Clutter can make the largest of homes seem small so before you start showing your home it might be a good idea to store larger furniture and pack away collectibles and other personal items like trophies.  The more counter space they see, the bigger the house seems to them.

6.     Buyers like to see newer furnishings. If your furnishings are older consider storing your furniture and renting newer pieces while the house is showing.  Newer furniture reflects better on the home and appeal to more buyers.

7.     Buyers like to see what the house looks like with art on the walls. If you don’t already have artwork that has a general appeal or you don’t have any artwork consider renting or buying some contemporary pieces.

8.     Buyers don’t want to think about replacing fixtures. If your lights, cabinet pulls and other things are outdated, replacing them can be an inexpensive way of giving a room a fresh and updated look.

If you’re thinking of selling your home, take some of the tips from home stagers.  It will likely mean more money in your pocket in the end.

.Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra is an important piece of Winnipeg culture

Performing more than 80 concerts every year, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra consistently wows Winnipeggers and tourists from across the globe with their brilliant musical acts.

Music is a form of art and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra does it well. Between touring the globe, putting on family concerts and playing music written by master composers, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra covers a great deal of ground so that people of all ages and backgrounds can enjoy the music they perform.

The Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra certainly makes it possible for youth to achieve their musical dreams.

In addition, educational concerts are performed by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra each year to various students of all ages, from elementary school children to high school teenagers. The organization also works with inner city youths to promote the values of a musical education. Healthcare centres and music students from the University of Manitoba also benefit from programs through the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.

Enhance your musical awareness with the W.S.O.

Founded over 60 years ago and performing concerts for 100,000 audience members each year, the W.S.O. focuses on building communities around musical education and celebrating artistic excellence in both professional musicians and new rising stars.
