Apartment and townhome activity is outpacing the detached home market across Metro Vancouver*. This activity helped push total residential sales above the historical average in September.

     

 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential property sales in the region totalled 2,821 in September 2017, a 25.2 per cent increase from the 2,253 sales recorded in September 2016, and a 7.3 per cent decrease compared to August 2017 when 3,043 homes sold.

Last month’s sales were 13.1 per cent above the 10-year September sales average.

“Our detached homes market is balanced today, while apartment and townhome sales remain in sellers' market territory,” Jill...

Is selling your property the furthest thing from your mind? Well, here are some reasons for listing your property that you might not have considered.

 

1.    Your property may be worth more than you think. (It’s difficult to determine market value on your own. I can calculate it for you. Give me a call.)

2.    You might qualify for a better home than you anticipate.

3.    Perhaps you are tired of your current property and want a change.

4.    There may be homes on the market in a neighbourhood in which you’ve always wanted to live.

5.    Your current property may no longer meet your needs.

6.    Your neighbourhood may have changed...

You’re at work when the thought hits you, “Did I lock the door when I left this morning?” You check your smartphone, see that you didn’t, and click the “LOCK” button. Now your house is secure.

 

That’s home automation for you!

 

But, is home automation a good idea? That depends on a number of factors.

 

On the pro side, home automation can improve your quality of life. There are automation products that will adjust heating/cooling depending on whether or not you’re home, make your morning coffee when you get out of bed, and the list goes on and on. These conveniences save you time.

 

Home automation can also give you peace-of-mind. It’s comforting to be able to remotely...

Your home is likely your largest asset, so selling it may be the biggest financial move you’ve ever made, one that requires significant thought and strategy.  However, once you’ve entered the market, the process may move very quickly:  your property has the best chance to sell within its first seven weeks on the market.  Studies indicate that the longer a property stays on the market, the less it will ultimately sell for.  So, you need to ensure you’re ahead of the game.  Get your property into top selling shape before it hits the market in order to increase its chances of selling within the desired window of time and drawing top dollar.

 

Use the following tips to seize control of the home-selling...

You might naturally assume that it is most important to talk to a Realtor when you’re selling or buying a home. But there are many other circumstances in which it makes sense to give me a call. Here are a few examples.

 

1. When you’re at the “thinking about it” stage

 

If you’re just thinking about selling your home, and haven’t made a firm decision yet, you might feel uncomfortable calling a Realtor. Don’t be. In fact, I welcome your call. We can discuss what your current property will likely sell for on today’s market, and determine the type of home you qualify to buy. That way, you’ll have some clarity and be able to make a more informed decision.

 

2. If you’re nervous...

According to a recent study, the average homeowner pays more attention to kitchen stove safety than they do BBQ safety. But, the fact is, a BBQ mishap can be just as devastating. So, it pays to know the latest safety tips.

 

  • Keep BBQs at least 8 feet away from your house.
  • Check for venture tube blockages regularly. (Spiders are notorious for spinning webs in there.)
  • Clean the grill frequently to prevent flare ups. A grease fire on the grill can continue burning even after you’ve turned the BBQ off.
  • Don’t position your BBQ close to foliage, such as under a tree or next to shrubs.
  • Never BBQ in an enclosed area, such as a garage, even if the space is well ventilated.
  • Avoid leaving the grill unattended, especially when cooking greasy...
