Work From Home Tips

Sometimes working from home can feel like the best thing ever. You have access to all the comforts of home (read: the kitchen), don’t have to put on pants, and can be close to your family throughout the day. In many ways, working from home can make life so much easier.

But like anything else, sometimes working from home can be too much of a good thing and can make getting your actual work done a little trickier. Here are my favourite work from home tips to make working from home work for you!

1. Customize your environment. Make your work from home set up work for you! A nice lamp and some cute decorations that make you smile can go a long way to producing a work-friendly environment.

2. Set boundaries with others. This is a big one. Because you’re working at home, you’ll need to let the other people in your home know when you’re available and when you need to focus on your work. Set these boundaries and make sure they’re crystal clear to everyone involved.

3. Prepare your meals in advance. Being able to walk into the kitchen to grab a meal is great–until you realize that you don’t have anything for lunch and now have to make an entire meal or subsist off of snacks found at the back of the pantry. Meal prepping is your best friend for work from home.

4. Log out of your social media accounts. This is setting a boundary with yourself. When you’re on work time, keep the social media turned off. There are enough distractions already, and it’s so easy to get sucked into social media and wonder where the hours went.

5. Work from a home you love! Working from a place you don’t love won’t support your best work. But when you work from a home you love, working from home becomes amazing.

What’s the Worst Part of Renting?

In our crazy real estate market, many would-be buyers are turning to renting rather than buying. And I don’t blame them. But it might not be their best choice.

Renting has pros and cons, like anything else. In fact, if you’re not ready to settle down in one place or know that you’ll be moving to a different location in the near future, renting is absolutely the way to go.

But sometimes it seems that for every pro renting provides, it has at least two cons. Unlike owning your own home, you can’t design or decorate your living space the way that you want. If you want to paint a fun accent wall or even hang a beautiful painting, chances are you can’t unless you want to forfeit your deposit.

And right now, buying a house is definitely tricky. But renting is also becoming more and more difficult to get into. Rent costs are skyrocketing across the country, and rental markets are becoming incredibly competitive. Renting used to be a good way to save up for a home, but now rents are as much as a mortgage, and it makes less sense.

And then there’s what might be the biggest problem with renting: you can’t build up equity. When you own a home, the money you pay into your monthly mortgage bill goes directly towards your home.

That means that when you go to sell your home, you get all of that money back–and then some if you play the real estate market correctly.

But with renting, there’s no way to build equity. All of the money from your rent payment goes directly into your landlord’s pocket. And you never see a cent of it again!

So if you’re tired of renting, tired of the upstairs neighbours stomping around at all hours of the night, and tired of seeing your money disappear, let’s have a chat. There are other options out there when it comes to housing that could be the perfect fit for you.

Just send me a message and I’ll get you the information you need to get out of renting and make smart choices for your future.


How to Interview a Real Estate Agent

If you’ve decided to buy or sell a home, you need to get some professional help from a real estate agent. But finding the right agent can be stressful and overwhelming–there are so many of us real estate agents out there to choose from!

But if you follow this process, you’ll be able to find an agent who will help you achieve success in this competitive housing market.

First, decide how you will meet with the agent. You can do this in-person at your home, the agent’s office, or a coffee shop. And if you’re not feeling up to meeting in person right now, that’s totally fine, too! Most agents are more than happy to meet on Zoom so you can feel comfortable through the interview process.

Next, once you’re at the interview, you need to do a vibe check. How is the agent making you feel? Do you think your personalities mesh well? And can you see yourself working with the agent in a long-term capacity? You and your agent will be spending a lot of time together, and they will guide you through some stressful moments, so it’s important that you can work well with them. 

Then ask what this agent can bring to the table. Like everyone else, each agent has particular strengths and skills that have helped them become successful. You will want to make sure that these skills line up with what you’re looking for. 

And lastly, ask about their experience. Each real estate transaction is different and has its own intricacies. For example, if you’re selling an inherited piece of property, you’ll want to find someone with experience so they know what to expect. Make sure that the agent’s experience fits your situation. 

I always recommend that you interview at least three real estate agents so you can find the agent who will work best for you and help you achieve your real estate dreams.

And if you want to set up an interview with me to see how I can help you buy or sell a home, just reach out and we’ll get one set up!
