Weekly REPORT  Feb 18 - 24, 2014  

We are fast approaching Spring, the time when many people think about selling. However, decreasing prices have been in the news - is it the right time to sell? In a word, yes! Remember, prices increased 100% in the 5 years leading up to 2009. Even though they’ve subsequently come down, they are still significantly higher than before the peak. From that standpoint alone it is a good time to sell! The other thing to remember is real estate dollars equal real estate dollars. By that we mean, if you’re selling and buying in the same market you can make up on your purchase what you lost on your sale. The first step is always a market evaluation. Call me today!

Weekly REPORT  Feb 11 - 17, 2014  

 

Although our market has improved, there are some interesting dynamics. On one hand, we see properties that have been on the market for months, with little or no activity. One could conclude the market is slow. Then we see some new listings come onto the market and draw multiple offers. What’s going on? Price! While sales have improved, price is still king. Properties that are priced too high aren’t even getting enquiries. Sharply priced properties are being shown every day. Here’s the good news: there are good, qualified buyers looking for property right now. But they are selective. They are jumping on well priced properties and ignoring everything else. Your RE/MAX agent is an expert on pricing. Listen to their advice. Get your price in line with the market if you wish to sell.

Weekly REPORT  Feb 4 - 10, 2014  

Lately we’ve noted some encouraging signs that the real estate market may be improving. The latest sales statistics back that up. According to the Real Estate Board, sales of detached homes on the Coast in the last 2 months increased by 60% over the same period last year. These improved numbers support predictions that 2014 will be a busier year for real estate. The Real Estate Board also notes that RE/MAX Oceanview was the top listing and top selling office on the Coast for 2013. That the 18th year in a row! Thinking about buying or selling? Think about this: we have the inventory; we have the expertise. And we have the stat’s that prove we’re better at helping you buy or sell than anybody else. Call us first!

Weekly REPORT  JAN. 28 – Feb.3, 2014  

Many know that Realtors have to pass a course and be licensed by the gov’t. We also have to undergo a criminal record check, find a broker who will hire us on and pay thousands of dollars for licensing, insurance and Board fees before we can practice. And it doesn't end there. It takes years to master real estate law, contract wording and agency. There’s also expertise needed for title issues, evaluations, marketing and negotiating skills. Also, we must take upgrade courses each year to maintain our license. This is why 75% of those who pass the exam are out of the business within 5 years.  And this is why the rest of us - the 25% - call ourselves "professionals"!
