I believe February is a short month for a reason. By February, those that do not especially like winter,
are hoping for a change in weather conditions….but it is still winter and we can’t really expect a promise of spring until March. Mid February has the distraction of Valentines Day for which many of us have something special to look forward to. I tend to call friends I haven’t talked to in a while, do something special with my Mom and have a general “Be Extra Nice Day” to strangers and clients I generally do not interact with on a daily basis. No longer having a significant other, I now have turned that the day into a very happy day with lots of positive communications. Also since it is a work day I am still waiting for something that has never happened in my career in Real Estate and that is: Someone to walk through my office door to buy a property for their sweetheart! LOL maybe it will happen before I retire.
Many of the properties that were purchased earlier this year, close in February to get their new home or vacation property ready to enjoy when spring arrives. It is a great time to do the interior renovations and having that completed to work on the exterior when the outside temperatures becomes more favourable. If you are needing contractors for some of the work be sure to contact them now to assure your project in done in a timely manner in the spring. Trades are very busy throughout the Almaguin Area and waiting too long may mean your project will not be scheduled until next fall which is very disappointing for some property owners. The Almaguin Chamber of Commerce has an excellent guide published which has names and contacts for most area businesses: Almaguin Highlands Community Guide & Directory
