Marnie Bennett: Growing Popularity of Condo Lifestyle Reflected at Ottawa Home and Garden Show

OTTAWA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- Marketing consultant, Marnie Bennett, who has been deeply involved in the development of product improvements and in the promotion of the growing field of condominiums in the Ottawa market, recently highlighted in a statement to the press the attention that the Ottawa Home and Garden Show will pay to the condo lifestyle.

As The Ottawa Citizen reported in a recent article: "Small is big at this year's Ottawa Home and Garden Show. As boomers downsize and young professionals snap up seemingly even-tinier condos, doing more with less space is becoming the modern homeowner's mantra." Bennett confirms and augments that view by stating that with new solutions on the market, buyers can make condo living a lot more comfortable and far more efficient than ever before.

The article explains that The Ottawa Home and Garden Show, which will be held at the Ernst & Young Centre from March 21 thru March 24, will feature a wide range of products and services that make homeownership easier and more enjoyable. Among the items that are set to be displayed at this year's event there is a wall planter, a collapsible wine holder, container gardening supplies, and more. For condominium owners who do not have a great deal of outdoor space and yet love some greenery or a window herb garden, indoor gardening solutions are highly sought after assets.

"I'm excited to see that the companies within the home and garden industries are paying attention to the differing needs of small-space dwellers," Marnie Bennett comments. "We have seen the popularity of condos rise in the real estate industry, but the need for storage and previously unavailable, hard-to-find or overly-expensive small-space solutions have combined to deter many buyers from investing in units that they otherwise love. With the right products on the market, more homebuyers will have the ability to not only purchase the houses that they are interested in, but also to create comfortable and satisfying lives in them. The young professional who wants to live in the city center but who is worried about confining themselves to a smaller space can use these innovative and more affordable products as resources that will allow them to conveniently and comfortably fit and grow into their home, rather than feel as though it is too small. Likewise, retired couples looking to downsize can use these solutions to comfortably transition into their new home."

Bennett encourages any individuals who are interested in purchasing a condo or in exploring the options in Ottawa to contact a knowledgeable, trusted and experienced real estate agent right away, as there are many exciting opportunities open to buyers on the current market.

In summing up the feature of small-space innovations at the Home Show, Bennett said that confirms and proves what Walt Disney said all along: "It's a small world after all!"
