450 ideas to get your home sold faster

Many of us are regular viewers of landscaping, gardening and home decorating shows and they make it seem so easy. But those of us that have followed their examples know it generally isn’t as easy or as affordable as is often suggested.

Sure, the materials for some of these projects may not cost a fortune but that is often all that is considered. The TV producers frequently get contractors to donate their time in exchange for the valuable publicity they receive, so the true cost of the project is never appreciated. Still, it usually makes a good story.

The problem with many home improvement projects is that they simply cost too much to accomplish when compared with the value they add to your home.

The book pictured here, “450 Ideas To Help Your Home Sell Faster”, contains a wealth of information and suggestions for no-cost or low cost things you can do to improve your homes value. I have just acquired distribution rights to this book and my primary intention was to give a copy to all of those sellers I work with who have the time to carry out some cost-effective improvements before placing their home on the market.

I quickly realised that even if you don’t plan to sell your home for a while, this is an excellent resource for ideas to make your home more pleasant to live in. This is no small brochure. There are 52 pages of content covering every room in the home as well as the outside and even the garage. If you would like a copy, please enter your details below and press the submit button. A copy will be emailed to you immediately and you will also automatically receive Halina’s fortnightly newsletters.

Wellington as a home

Wellington is a very special city. For a start, it’s the world’s southernmost capital city. It’s also the geographic, political and cultural heart of New Zealand with a sense of community hard to rival in other cities. The centre of government and the home of many corporate headquarters, it’s said that its hard-working residents are extra friendly because many were born elsewhere.

Wellington is also home to many museums, theatres and live music venues as well as the national museum, Te Papa; the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra; the Royal New Zealand Ballet; and the renowned biennial International Festival of the Arts.

Wellington is the leading centre for the creative industries such as film and computer technologies, as well as the location of the New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZX).

Its homes, cafes, shops and bars are spread on the waterfront, bays and hills that hug picturesque Wellington Harbour.

Wellington is a delightfully concentrated city, meaning it’s also just a short drive to stunning beaches and tranquil countryside.

Nearly all Wellingtonians live within three kilometres of the coastline, and the city has some 109 parks and playgrounds.

As a region Wellington has a diverse range of landscapes including 50,000 hectares of regional parks and forests.
