Most electrical repairs should be made by a professional. But for all you "do-it-yourselfers" out there, here are tips on how to stay safe when dealing with your home electrical systems.

The Electrical Panel
Every time you use an electrical device in your home, power runs through the electrical panel, causing it to heat up and cool down constantly. These temperature fluctuations cause your home’s electrical panel to fail over time—the lifespan of a typical modern electrical panel is around 15 to 20 years. If you have a fuse box or another older-style electrical panel (you’ll usually see these in homes wired prior to the 1960s), it’s recommended to replace it with a modern circuit breaker-style electrical panel as soon as possible. You should also

We understand keeping the exterior of your home maintained can be extremely time-consuming and overwhelming. However, managing your outdoor property is crucial in preserving the structure and longevity of your home.

Beautiful Landscape

1. Vegetation.
Trees, bushes and other plants can cause damage to your home’s siding and roof. Branches can scrape against your home, causing cracks and damage that can lead to unwelcome pests. Neglected vegetation can also trap moisture along the foundation of your home, leading to mold and mildew.

2. External Faucets.
To prevent freezing, be sure to winterize all external faucets during the coldest months of the year. Disconnect hoses, turn off the water supply and finally, drain any water that might remain. This will help keep your

Energy usage is an unavoidable part of everyday life. But the choices we make when it comes to our energy habits can make all the difference for our environment and our daily lives.

With every house that we see on the market, people always have their designated areas that they prefer to look in whether that is due to work, children's schooling, activities, lifestyle or more. Even if we don't truly know the community, we may just like it due to convenience or that particular "something". Every listing that I (Daniyal Nasiri) have, I look to answer that underlying question that may arise for you; "Why this community?". 

So lets get to it!

Wouldn't it be nice to find out the property's real story before buying it?

Purchasing any property is a major investment and most likely one of the biggest investments you will make in your life time. To protect your investment and you, a real estate agent such as myself would always suggest to have a property inspection done during your condition period of an offer. With a property inspection, you'll allow a property inspector to go through the property with you, learning what is in acceptable condition and if there are any major or minor defects that they can see. Whether you are purchasing a single-family home, condominium, duplex, apartment, complex, or office space, the inspector will evaluate and document the condition of the property. Allowing

People process large decisions differently.

Most of the time relationships work because your partner tends to balance you out. This also means that you and your partner will have different points of view on certain things, and at time can drive each other bonkers. 

In most cases, you and your partner will argue when buying or selling a property. You and your partner are unique, but you're not alone. This is a high stress situation and can be very emotional. So let's talk about how to stay together while looking for a property!

**Note: I (Daniyal Nasiri) does not hold a psychology degree. I've helped a lot of couples buy homes and have mediated tons of arguments. I have shoved many bottles of wine into client's hands and assigned the homework:…

Redwood Meadows is a townsite in Alberta, Canada. Redwood Meadows is unique in that it is a partially independent municipality, functioning similar to an incorporated Alberta town, but is different from all other Alberta towns due to:
