As soon as we walked into the funk nation house, I think for me it was super eye-opening to see that we could live in a house like that while downsizing in space and also our mortgage.
So Brad and Kaitlyn were so accommodating of us throughout the whole process. We were obviously excited to get into our new house so even though we didn’t have possession of it yet we were constantly asking if we could come see it each week – see what the updates were.
To hear them talk about which walls they were going to knock down and then adding an 11-foot island – it blew my mind! I had no idea that that was even possible. Again, a house is a big expense, it’s a big investment so to have somebody like that, that’s willing to stand by you every step of the way and explain in every kind of way that is needed, it was everything for me. It was so nice to have that.
We decided to purchase a Spruce Home because we were really interested in the remaining part of the core neighbourhood of the City of Saskatoon. We were not interested in spending additional time and money on major renovations. Spruce Homes really checked both of those boxes. We were able to remain in a mature neighbourhood within the city and have that luxurious feeling of moving into a brand new home.
One of our favourite things about the house was how they took care of every square inch. The whole main floor was renovated and also the basement, which was big for us. Our hardwood floors are original. We know a lot of care and attention went into maintaining them. We found that they really keep the character of a home but with the remodelling and the renovations, they really provide a great upgrade as a fresh start. It was really nice for us to move in and get comfortable right away.
If you’re looking to purchase a home within a mature neighbourhood in Saskatoon, we would definitely recommend Spruce Homes.
What I like best about our new home is that when you walk up, it has the feel of all the other older houses in the neighbourhood and then you walk in and they have managed to maintain that old look and feel but from a more modern approach.
We chose this Spruce home over other homes that we saw on the market because this one just checked off all the boxes. We were looking for a house, on and off, for about two years and we had certain things that we wanted. We walked into this house and we both looked at each other, nodded and made the offer right there.
Kaitlyn and Brad, ever since the beginning, were excellent to deal with. For us, being first time home buyers, there were a lot of questions that we had. The attention to detail in the home was really on point. It is almost as if they built it as if they were going to move into it. So the ownership the took through the building process: it showed and it meant a lot and really made our decision almost immediate.
