Global markets are down reacting negatively to the ECB policy decision to keep rates on hold and wait for early 2015 to reassess the situation. Market reaction most likely comes from the substantial downgrade by the ECB on the region’s future growth and inflation outlook through to 2016. Like it or not, European leaders must resign to realize that QE, especially in light of much higher deflation threat from falling oil prices is on the table. With the ECB announcement the USD index is making gains against all major currencies with the Yen almost touching 120. So Europe is marred in the red with France leading decliners down 1.50% while overnight in Asia markets again surged with Shanghai up 5.10% on continued speculation of more stimulus...

Don’t get discouraged if your property hasn’t sold during its first appearance on the market.  Your home may actually have been one of the most appealing listings of its kind—and the reasons it didn’t sell may have nothing to do with the property itself or the market.  Rather, a number of separate factors may have influenced the outcome.  Take a step back, break your original selling method into parts, and allow yourself time to evaluate each one.  Make a commitment.  Establish a new approach.  Stick to it.  A reassessment of your system, and a shift in perspective, may be just what you need to realize your ultimate goals in the sale of your home. 

If your listing has expired, you...

Home buyers in Metro Vancouver remained active in November, a month that is traditionally a quieter time of year for real estate.

 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in Metro Vancouver reached 2,516 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in November 2014.

Last month’s sales were 6.9 per cent above the 10-year sales average for November.

“It’s been a more active fall than we typically see in the Metro Vancouver housing market,” Ray Harris, REBGV president...

"Staging" your home is all about making the space in your home as appealing as possible to buyers. You may already know the basics, such as eliminating clutter. Here are some other tips that are less well known yet very effective:

 

  • Chandeliers. Surprisingly, these are one of the simplest ways to make a foyer, dining room or living room dramatically more eye-catching. You can buy a good-looking chandelier for a few hundred dollars.

 

  • New linen. This is something many home sellers don't consider, but should. Replace any worn linen – sheets, coverings, towels, and even oven mitts with new ones. Believe it or not, new linen makes a big impression on buyers.

 

  • Pedestal sinks. It may not be practical for you to replace...
