  1. There's less competition - Not everyone's willing to look at homes in single-digit temperatures.  The months of May, June, July, and August make up 40% of existing-home sales, while January and February account for less then 6%.
  2. Sellers are motivated-and willing to make a deal - Most likely, sellers listing their home in depts of winter seriously want to sell.  That gives buyers the upper hand.
  3. You can put the house through its paces - In most climates, winter puts stress on the home.  That gives you the perfect opportunity to evaluate the property under the worst condtitions possible.  A home that might seem perfect during the temperate spring could look wholly different in the winter.
  4. Hiring movers is usually easier - No one can claim that it's easier to move in the winter.  If you've ever done it, you know it's sheer misery to move all of your possessions in inclement weather.  But the logistics are simplified when you aren't competing with a hundred other moving households.
  5. Corporate relocations - You could also encounter buyers who are relocating for a job.  One of the biggest months for corporate relocations is January/February, so those buyers, who need to move quickly, are out in full force looking for new homes.  Relocations typically have a limited amount of time to uproot their families and, as a result, don't have the luxury of spending a lot of time looking at properties.  The kids need to get settled into school, and dealing with selling their old home can add another level of urgency and stress.  So It's likely that once they find a home that meets their requirements, these buyers will be ready to sign on the dotted line.
  6. New parents may be looking to upgrade - There are more birthdays in the month of Septemeber than any other time of the year.  Therefore, there's likely to be a crop of growing families looking to buy a larger house.

I do love the fall.  Even if it means back-to-school, shorter days, cooler temperatures and getting back into a routine after the summer.  I know there's a reason for every season.  So, as your family embraces fall and adjusts to its faster pace, make time to ensure your home is safe, secure and ready for cooler tempertures with these 12 home maintnenace tips.

Outside the Home

  1. Feeling a draft?  Seal around windows and doors with spray foam, caulking or weather stripping to keep the cool air out.  Not only will you feel more comfortable, you'll save money on your energy bills.
  2. Get your mind in the gutter.  Leaves don't just collect on lawns.  They also fill your eavestroughs and downspouts.  So clean them out and let water drain properly.
  3. Put your air conditioner to bed.  Ask a professional to properly power down your central air conditioner unit.  Fully covering your air conditioner may trap moisture, so ask if a short cover that just covers the top is right for your unit to prevent leaves and debris from getting trapped inside.
  4. Get on top of roof issues.  Hire a professional to check your roof for signs of loose or missing shingles and other damage, especially after extreme weather conditions.
  5. Turn off outside faucets.  These pipes are susceptible to freezing, so close shut-off valves for all outside faucets, and turn on the ourside fauces to let them drain propertly.
  6. Rake and shake.  Piles of leaves can provide entertainment for little ones to jump in, but don't keep them around long.  Leaves can kill your grass if left on the ground for an extended period.  Rake them, bag them, and take them to the curb for pick up to keep your soil healthy, or mulch them with a mower and shake them over your garden to improve soil fertility.
  7. Stow your tools and toys.  Put away the lawn mower.  Wipe gardening tools down and store them in a shed or garage.  Aso store patio furniture and children's toys to protect them from the elements.
  8. Store firewood safely.  Dry firewood should be stacked at least four to five metres away from your home.

Inside the Home

  1. Check and detect.  Check that your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are in good working order and replace the batteries as often as recommened by the manufacturer.
  2. Did someone say the "f" word?  As cooler temperatures arrive, you'll want to have your furnance servied and filter changed to make sure everything is running efficiently.
  3. Practice safe kindling.  Clear out ash and charred wood from the fireplace.  While enjoying a fire, keep a glass or metal screen in front of your fireplace to help prevent sparks from flying.  Also, have your chimney inspected and cleaned my a professional.
  4. Move on up.  Check your attic (or hire a professional) to make sure insulation is properly installed to prevent head from escaping.

Hi and welcome to my website!

I would like to start by introducing myself. My name is Robin Tobias and I am currently a real estate agent with Royal LePage Northern Lights in Cold Lake, AB, and previously with Royal LePage benchmark in Calgary, AB. We are an RCMP family and relocated to Cold Lake in April of 2020 and love it here! We spend most of our time on the amazing Kinosoo beach, fishing on the lake, or camping in the area.

I have quite a bit of experience both as an agent and a client. I have purchased and sold many of my own personal homes with and without federal relocation. I have sold and purchased in buyers and seller’s markets. I have spent hours on the phone with relocation getting details of the process for our own transfer. I have been on house hunting trips with kids. I understand the stress of dealing with showings, packing, moving and looking for your next home. All of this has given me a unique client perspective of the process that most agents won’t have. Being part of the DND family comes with great pride and I am always there to help other DND members transferring in or out of Cold Lake.

Whether you are purchasing or selling a home, when you choose me as your agent you will be treated with a truly client based service. Working for a client is more than just a pay check to me. Yes, this is how I make a living, but it is also my passion which is why all of my services, including documents and presentations, are delivered with a high level of professionalism that haven’t been seen outside of the big cities.

My website has all the houses for sale in Cold Lake and is very easy to navigate and don’t forget to order your free buyer’s and seller’s guide.

Below is a link to my Facebook page and my Instagram account. Please feel free to follow, like or share it with anyone you might know that is interested or looking for a real estate agent with exceptional service!



Thanks for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!

Robin Tobias.
