Bathroom Reno Time!

This home is located in New Maryland, and originally had 3 bathrooms. Out of all these bathrooms, there wasn't a single bath tub! Not great for a family with kids, but perfect for the opportunity to renovate!

 

Here's what it looked like to start!

After demo'ing the shower, old tile and trim we got to this stage:

Dark, poor colours, but on the right path!

We had to build a false wall behind the tub install. This allowed us to box up and create a custom box for shampoo and other things for the shower!

 

Time for the Flooring! Beautiful 2 foot tile from Maritime Flooring!

 

How it's all starting to come together :) 

And the end result??

Hiring a Realtor that understands what needs to be done to help a house sell, along with the prices you should expect to pay for renovations can be worth it's weight!

If you plan on listing and doing renovations, it's always a great idea to get your Realtor on board with your plans to see if the renovation is worth doing in the first place!

Why to buy or Sell in New Maryland?

First of all, let’s look at property values!! 

The average selling price of a home in New Maryland sold for $229,957.63!! 

This is based off of sold listings from Jan. 1st 2015 - Dec. 31st 2016
This does not include vacant land or mini homes sold in Peterson Park.

Compare this to the price of the average home sale price in the Greater Fredericton for Dec. 2015 of $165,946!!

 
This is a total volume of $13.5 Million dollars in real estate activity on 59 total transactions!

 
This makes the area a fantastic choice for either buying and retaining your property value, or selling when the time comes. Why are the values so great here? There are a few reasons. 



#1 Property tax is less than Fredericton City Tax. Being 5 minutes from all amenities and getting a tax break means a BIGGER home for less tax Dollars!

#2 New Maryland Elementary School is one of the TOP rated schools in the Province making the area VERY appealing for first time buyers or young families.

#3 New Maryland Town Hall does an amazing job of organizing events, creating community spirit and bring everyone together. It truly has a small town feel but 5 minutes from all the essential amenities of uptown Fredericton.

#4 Proximity - to the uptown area, corbett centre, + Major highways.  This makes it great for our military members as they are conveniently located next to the highway making the drive to base Gagetown just around 10 minutes. It also works out well for the family members who don't work at base Gagetown, as the drive to everything uptown is just a skip away!
