Many of us know the drill. Every two years we walk into the optometrist's office for an eye exam and often a new prescription. This would be the right time to find out what's new about eyeglasses and which innovations could make our vision clearer and our lives easier.

Take lenses that fog up, for example. As many as 75% of adults polled in a recent survey by Essilor Canada were interested in learning about proven anti-fog capabilities.

Nearly half the respondents also reported feeling unsafe when their glasses fog. Of these, 43 per cent said foggy lenses made them feel unsafe when driving, with an alarming one out of five admitting that this caused them to remove their glasses while behind the wheel.

With this feedback in mind, Essilor developed Optifog technology, a new lens innovation that provides long-lasting, fog-free vision, no matter what the conditions. Those who wear glasses can now enjoy the great outdoors, cook dinner, and drive home with confidence that they won't miss a moment. "Fog can be a problem for glasses wearers year-round. It can occur when drinking a hot beverage or even working, especially in jobs where safety or precision are important, such as a surgeon wearing a mask," says Dr. Lawrence MacAulay, of Armstrong Optometry in British Columbia. "Initial consumer feedback about Optifog has given eyeglass wearers a new-found freedom. They can rely on seeing clearly now in all conditions."

Tired of that old run down looking house you've been living in? Why not upgrade your home to a new look and increase the value of your home in the process. You can have the home of your dreams and it's not as hard as you think. Your old home may be run down and the paint may be thirty years old and peeling off, but you can have the best looking house in your neighborhood.

How? Just give it a new face lift with colorful and easy to maintain vinyl siding. Vinyl siding comes in a variety of colors and you can choose the one that's right for you. Your 100 year old house can look new again and the cost won't burn a hole in your pocket.

Vinyl siding can be applied over brick structures and it can also be applied over wood and concrete structures. Vinyl siding looks great and its insulation qualities wrap the entire home in warmth and comfort. The entire project will be completed in a short amount of time if done by a reputable contractor of your choosing.

You can have your old home looking brand new and bright and shiny with new siding. Your entire home will match with the same bold colors you select and your window and door trim will match also. The value of your old home will sky rocket and if you ever decide to sell your home, you'll receive higher offers for it.

You may be wondering why you'll want to put up new vinyl siding as compared to aluminum siding. There are a lot of good reasons to choose vinyl, but the final decision is yours. There are a lot of differences between aluminum siding and vinyl. Vinyl siding is manufactured from a continuous formed plastic material and usually has a thickness between .040 to.046 inches. Aluminum siding is a continuous formed material that is usually around .019 inches thick.

Vinyl siding is manufactured with a solid color, while aluminum siding is manufactured with a baked on enamel paint finish. Since vinyl siding has a manufactured solid color, the color will remain solid even when scratched.

Not so however with aluminum siding. The paint is baked on so if aluminum siding is scratched; the paint peels off and leaves a shiny bare metal finish exposed. The choice is yours; however, your home will look newer and have a higher value when it is finished. You'll love the added warmth and comfort that your new siding will bring you.

Your neighbors won't believe the big difference they'll see in your home and you'll have a hard time believing that is the same house yourself. Energy efficient, stylish and modern, your new siding will give your home that personal touch and feel it had when you first purchased it. You have everything to gain with new siding and the new look it gives your home and property is amazing.

Have you noticed the growing number of Calgary open houses in your neighbourhood? The Calgary housing market is in the midst of a transition and as such, more and more people are deciding to list their homes. That may be fine and dandy for homebuyers because now they’ve got the ability to shop around--but, as a Calgary home seller, it’s important to acknowledge the fact that your home isn’t the only one that prospective buyers will be checking out.

 

In order for your house to stand out from the rest, you’ve got to make a lasting impression. A great way to do this is by holding an open house. That said, I present my latest article, 5 tips for how to hold the best Calgary open house ever.

 

1)    Curb appeal

 

It’s said that first impressions are made within one tenth of a second. In the case of your home, potential homebuyers are going to be making judgments before they even put their car in park. That’s why it’s important to step up your curb appeal and ensure a good first impression.

 

Some simple tips for improving your curb appeal are: a well kept yard during the warmer months, ensuring there’s no garbage or receptacles in the front yard, and sprucing it up with some nice potted plants. 

 

 

2)    Treats and goodies

 

When you’re showing your home, it doesn’t hurt to have some snacks floating around. The idea of the Calgary open house is to give potential homebuyers an idea of what it’d be like to live there. And when people are at home, they’re accustomed to having treats and goodies on hand. Take a step in the right direction by being ready to dish out the snacks—the tastier the better!

 

3)    Create an ambiance

 

Your home has the ability to convey a range of emotions, but the feelings you want to evoke are bright, warm, and welcoming. You can easily do this by taking a minute to improve the scent, sights, and sound of your home.

 

An idea for improving the scent of your home is purchasing a few Glade PlugIns® and placing them in different rooms throughout your home. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to bake some cookies on the day of your open house. You’ll be filling your home with that delicious aroma that we all find so hard to resist—plus more snacks are never a bad thing. 

 

Improve the sights in your home by opening all of your blinds and flooding the rooms with natural lighting. Do your best to keep sightlines open and unobstructed by decluttering your home and keeping the doors throughout your home wide open to give it an open, welcoming feel.

 

As for sound, if you’ve got a stereo system handy, or even one of those little iPod docks, play some calm, relaxing background music. It’ll help to put the potential homebuyers at ease and play a big part in creating an ambiance. 

 

 

4)    Tidy up!

 

There’s nothing worse than people walking into a home and being obstructed by clutter. Make sure that your entrance is clean and clear for your guests. As I mentioned with first impressions on the exterior of your home, the same applies to the interior. Two rooms to pay special attention to are the kitchen and the bathroom.

 

Keep your kitchen free of clutter by ensuring that all of your dishes are washed and put away, that your stovetop is clear of pots and pans, and that no one will find a half eaten tuna sandwich on your kitchen table.

 

The bathroom is another place that people tend to spend a fair amount of time in so you want to be sure that it’s spic and span. Clean your mirrors, hang some fresh towels in there, and do your best to keep your counters clear of unnecessary clutter. On top of it looking clean, it will appear to be more spacious as well.

 

5)    Tell people

 

If you’re having a conversation with someone, casually mention that you’re holding an open house. There’s a good chance that they’re not shopping for a home at that exact moment, but there’s a chance that they might know someone who is. Don’t shy away from sharing the details of your open house on social media either.

 

However, if you choose to use a REALTOR® to help you sell your home, they have access to a full suite for marketing tools designed to get the word out. These tools range from simple things like flyers, mail outs, and physical banner ads out on the street to online marketing tools like the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

 

If you’re considering listing your home, and you found these 5 tips for how to hold the best Calgary open house useful, don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly and I’ll help you get the most value for you home:
