Speaking of the Edmonton real estate market, are you thinking of buying or selling a home in the capital region? Why not check out the Sherwin Williams’ ColourSnap Visualizer – a fun and handy app that allows you to virtually paint any room in your home. Sellers looking to boost their home’s resale value can experiment with neutral palettes most likely to appeal to buyers. In contrast, buyers can use the app to help them visualize how a potential property may look before committing to a sale.

A free download and available to both iOS and Android users, ColorSnap also allows users to match paint colours from photos, view colours in both day and night settings and calculate precisely how much paint you’ll need to cover any room.

An online alternative to the physical yard or garage sale, Letgo allows you to list, sell and search second-hand items in the Edmonton area.
