Home staging has become an important piece of the home-selling puzzle. Canadian home sales are at an all time high and if you want your house to look like it's worth every penny of the price you're asking, you will have to put your home's best foot forward.
Vacant land seems like the light at the end of the tunnel for many people who are looking for a way into cottage country on a limited budget.

Buying land with an existing structure will almost always be less expensive than developing a vacant lot.
“I didn't realize I could actually afford a cottage”. I have spent the last few weeks attending local festivals and speaking with people and my biggest takeaway from these conversations is the misnomer that a cottage property is out of reach.
