For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

Wednesday Apr 25th, 2018

Why list with an agent or more to this topic, why not list on my own and save the commission? This is a very common question that realtors face on a regular basis. The part that is not so common is the answer. Most "FSBO" sellers do not wait for the true answer but rather proceed with their private sale with either incomplete or misguided information. Here's the truth: As a seller - you don't save the commission. If there is any commission to be saved it will be the... [read more]

Comes From Away

Tuesday Mar 13th, 2018

It’s interesting how sales, territories, client base and associated buzz words work in today’s world. In any industry, we have become a very connected world where our new customer prospect is as close as our keyboard, our mobile device or the person right beside you regardless of where you are. Recently, I took a winter break far from the world of Real Estate and away from my local area. I spent 10 days in beautiful Cuba where along with family and friends, I enjoyed some... [read more]

Hot Real Estate Market Normalizing

Tuesday Sep 05th, 2017

Wow! It’s been awhile since I've posted and there has been so much activity over the past several months. We have gone from an extremely hot market to a sudden shiver. What's the cause and will it come back? Interestingly enough... the market has not come to a stop, it has just "normalized..." There has been an influence from a few different fronts that may have impacted this. Before I get into that, the reason I say "may have impacted" is that much about... [read more]

Cooling Factors in a Hot Market

Thursday May 18th, 2017

Share

There has been a lot of things said, discussed and debated in the media recently regarding the Real Estate Market. Government regulations have been introduced with the intent or expectation of “cooling” the market. It seems that the prices are not only rising – but doing so in record numbers. It is getting (or has gotten) to a point where it is difficult to keep up. The consumer has been inundated with new rules, policy and taxes that for the most part, only add to the... [read more]

Hi Everyone, Condo Pros and Cons! Update-----SOLD I have a Condo Listing Coming Up Soon!    It really got me thinking about the pros and cons of “condo living”. Like many other things in life, it is something that comes down to personal choice. The first of these choices is the suitability of living in a condo vs. a home. It is important to question the things that will impact you on a daily basis. Parking, elevators and proximity to neighbours come to mind.... [read more]

Jan - 2017

Tuesday Jan 03rd, 2017

Hi Again Friends, Welcome to 2017! A brand new year filled with many opportunities. The Real Estate industry and the market are very fluid. We have seen so many examples of changes that can impact our decisions as consumers to buy and as owners to sell. The Government has introduced stress testing for mortgage lending rules, closed some tax loops on foreign investors and has made changes to mortgage insurance. The rationale has been to protect buyers from being over-burdened in debt,... [read more]
