Decorating Your Home For The Holidays 

No matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other Winter Holiday, December is the season to brighten up your home with holiday décor and decorations. From gingerbread baking in the oven to stockings hung over the fireplace- we’ve put together 8 easy ways to bring the holiday season into your Westbow Home.

1. Add a holiday wreath to your front door.


Adding a wreath to your front door is a great and simple way to bring the spirit of the holiday to your home. Local makers offers various styles of wreaths or you can create something yourself using local greenery.

2. Decorate your Christmas tree 

There are many options when it comes to your Christmas tree. There has been a long debate between whether a fake or real tree is better, but there are now more options than ever! Second hand artificial trees provide a lower cost option while those looking for an eco friendly option may opt for a returnable Christmas tree.


3. Fill your holiday mugs with homemade hot chocolate, apple cider, or mulled wine

As the weather gets colder outside, filling your mug with a warm cozy drink will help warm your body and soul. 


4. Bring festivity into your bathroom

Simple pieces of décor such as candles, a locally made sign, and some holiday themed hand towels are a great and easy way to bring the holidays into your bathrooms.
 

5. Light up your neighbourhood

Christmas lights provide a bright and cheery neighbourhood atmosphere. From traditional string lights to modern projectable lights, the variety in options are endless
 

6. Spend time baking holiday cookies

Your Westbow kitchen is perfect for spending time with your family, baking holiday cookies. There are many holiday cookies to choose from!  Gingerbread, sugar cookies, and shortbread are just a few of our favourites.
 

7. Relax in your loft and enjoy a holiday movie

Many Westbow homes have bonus rooms or lofts which make for excellent places to curl up and enjoy a holiday movie.

 

8. Spend time with your family and friends.

As the holidays draw closer, families and friends gather to celebrate the season. Westbow homes are built for hosting parties, get togethers, and dinners. Spacious, open concept kitchen’s and living rooms  ensure there are no separation between the guests and the hosts.

Why Is It Important to Keep Your Home In Good Physical Condition?

When you are about to sell your home, you will need to make sure your home is in good condition before you do. Cosmetic aspects of your home are important selling tools and if you take the time to touch things up, it will pay off in the end.

What to fix first? 

Deciding on what to fix can vary. A discussion with your REALTOR® and doing some research is always the best first step. Take into consideration the time of the year, similar competing homes on the market, and what kind of neighbourhood you are residing in.

1. Flooring

Flooring is a good place to start. Whether you have hardwood, laminate, tile, or carpet you want to ensure they are in good condition. Homebuyers will notice and could be driven away if your flooring is in very poor condition.

2. Walls

Walls and ceilings should be free of cracks and chipped paint. While most people are likely to paint once they move in, you want your home to look as nice as possible. A fresh coat of paint will often do the trick. Use neutral colours like white or very light grey.

3. Kitchen

The kitchen should be a prime target in this area. Many people know the frustration of having a poor kitchen especially when the cabinets and appliances are in bad condition. A complete kitchen remodel can be expensive, talk to your REALTOR® about what improvements will assist in the sale of your home.

Overall you want to make sure your home is in the best condition possible. Use your best judgement and the help of your REALTOR® to determine what needs to be repaired or updated before you put your home on the market.

Trusted Saskatoon Auto Repair Pro's at Phobia Auto Explain Why They Don't Allow Customers to Supply Parts

Trusted Saskatoon Auto Repair & Service Experts at Phobia Auto are based in Martensville and they are a trusted source for honest advice and qualified auto service and repairs. People ask all the time why you can't supply your own parts when they come into Phobia Auto. If you are wondering why Phobia Auto answer the question in the tip below. Phobia Auto Are Trusted Saskatoon & area Auto Repair & Service Specialists. 


Phobia Auto Will Not Allow Customers to Supply Parts


Reason # 1: Warranty

The main reason is the warranty. Phobia Auto offers at the 1-year part and labour warranty on almost everything they install (depending on the manufacturer or if it says a used major component.) 




Reason # 2: Who Takes the Blame



Warranty can be a sticky situation. Let’s say a customer supplies a power steering pump they bought online. They install it and it’s a faulty pump (this is a real word thing). The customer is now on the hook for taking the part off and putting another on. Paying the labour twice. Phobia pays insurance on every part that comes through the door to allow them to eat these labour costs in a situation like this. 


Reason # 3: Auto Repair Shops Get Discounted Parts


Also, don’t forget that they get thousands of dollars worth of parts from the local jobbers. They should be entitled to get the parts a few dollars cheaper than the customer that buys a set of pads and a water pump every two years. So yes, they make money on parts. They must! Shop owners have a responsibility to pay their techs on time so that they can put food on the table while setting aside money for themselves as independent owners. Running a successful shop is very…..very expensive!




Reason # 4: Liability


The shop could be legally liable for failed parts. If they had installed a part that you had bought, and that part failed and caused an accident, Phobia Auto could be held legally liable. Why does that matter? Like many shop owners, Phobia Auto owners have poured their life savings into their businesses. The liability for installing a part you had purchased, in order to save a few bucks, isn’t worth that risk to a business owner’s personal and professional livelihoods. 



Reason # 5: Wrong Parts


Another issue we used to run into was wrong parts. Customers would be confident they had the right part they bought online. But they forgot to pay attention to if they had a 4x4 or a certain option that changed the part. Phobia Auto would have a dismantled vehicle on the hoist. Some customers would offer to get a new part from online but leaving them with a hoist tied up for days.
