Every renter has their own unique criteria for what they’re looking for in a home. However, there are a few notable features that are always in high demand. Whether you’re a renter who wants to know what options are out there in the market or a property owner who is looking to get more eyes on your listing, here are ten features that are frequently requested by renters today.
For many renters, storage can be a make or break feature – and that’s including storage both inside and outside of the rental property. Inside the unit, renters are looking for closets in the bedrooms and hallways, and preferably some sort of pantry or broom closet. Pre-installed closet organizers in these spaces can be a plus, and make things more attractive on a walkthrough. If it’s a renovated basement suite with no built-in closets, consider installing free-standing storage units and wardrobes, instead.
External storage can also be very important. While most ...

Other than the unwelcome incursion of fungus, nothing stains a beautiful home interior. The reputation of mould carries with it more than just an unsightly appearance, it can cause serious illness, and expensive repairs can result if left unchecked. Let's take a closer look at what the mold is, how to stop it, and if you encounter it at home, what to do.
What is mould?
Mould is the term used to describe fungus that grows on food and in damp environments in our homes, presenting in patches of dark grey, green, black or white.

Mould and mildew are often used as two distinct terms, though both describe fungi which we find in our homes. The difference is mildew grows on surfaces causing only cosmetic damage, while mould (referring to toxic fungus) spreads more easily, penetrating building materials and ca ...

We’ve compiled the top seven steps to declutter your home, so you can list your home for sale with confidence.
#1. Start early
It’s never too early to start the decluttering process. That’s because decluttering often takes much, much longer than you would expect. Thinking of listing your home for sale in March? Use January and February to declutter and update your home. Start early, be persistent, and before you know it you won’t recognize your own house (and that’s a good thing).
#2. Get organized
As soon as you start, you’ll probably notice your biggest nemesis: disorganization. It’s one reason why many people will trot out the cliche: A disorganized home is a cluttered home. The key to decluttering and getting your home organized is to stop sticking things in temporary locations. Every day, make a commitment to finding a home—a permanent home—for three to five items. To help, buy, closet organizers, and extra shelving ...
