Weekly REPORT  Dec. 10 - Dec. 16, 2013   

 

It is fairly common for some of our sellers to take their homes off the market in December and January. While it is true there are fewer transactions, it is also true that there are fewer homes on the market competing for buyers. And less competition can be good for sellers. Remember, sales happen all year long – even over the holidays. Keeping your home on the market at least gives you a chance to sell!

Weekly REPORT  Dec. 3 - Dec. 9, 2013   

The November statistics are in and with the year-end not far off, we can make a few observations on the market for 2013. First, prices have continued to moderate on the Coast, declining 4% over the past year. This represents a decrease of 1/3% per month, which is which is an improvement on the 1/2% per month we saw earlier in the year.  The number of homes sold has also declined 6.3% from 2012. However, this, too, is better than the 15% we saw last Spring. Even though prices and numbers of sales remain in the negative, the rate of decline appears to be trending in the right direction.

Weekly REPORT  Nov. 26 - Dec. 2, 2013   

Current mortgage rates remain at historically low levels - around 3.5% for a 1 – 2 year term. Real estate prices have also moderated. Buyers, especially first time buyers and investors, find themselves in a great position, as mortgage payments for entry level homes are close to monthly rent. Statistics tell us that the 30 year average for mortgage rates is about 8%. Rates will rebound at some point and this unusual coincidence of low rates and low prices will end. When you consider that there is currently also a good selection of listings you can see why we think it’s a great time to buy.

Weekly REPORT  Nov. 12 - Nov. 18, 2013   

It is not uncommon for tenant occupied properties to be offered for sale. However, tenancies can have a big impact on possession dates for the buyer. For month to month tenancies, a notice period to vacate is 60 days from the start of the next rental period. All the subjects must be off of the sale before the notice is given and the tenant is entitled to an additional payment of 1 month’s rent. For a lease, there is no notice period – the tenant has a right to uninterrupted occupation of the premises until the end of the lease. Your Realtor is trained to plan sales around the various forms of tenancies.

                            Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall Weekly REPORT  Nov. 5 - Nov. 11, 2013   

We’ve been discussing how some features of real estate, like charges on title, are not readily apparent. An easement is just such a charge. An easement is a legal notation on the title commonly used to grant access from one property over another. A driveway crossing one property to service another would be an example of an easement. Easements generally run with the land – that is, they stay in place even after the property changes hands. They most often remain in place in perpetuity, unless the parties to the easement agree to de-register it. Your professional Realtor knows an easement is something you need to know about early on in the consideration of the property.

Weekly REPORT Oct. 29 - Nov. 4, 2013   

 

Building schemes are charges that are registered on title which affect the improvements to be constructed on a property. Did you know that sometimes these restrictions can be enforced even after the home has been built and changed hands? Take siding - even though the current owners may not have installed the siding, they can sometimes be made to change it if it does not comply with the old building scheme. Your professional realtor is trained to look for these title nuances and will report them to you before you’re obligated to the purchase.

Even the most discerning buyer can overlook a deficiency in a home. That’s why Realtors who represent buyers include a building inspection subject clause in the offer. But what happens if the inspection reveals a latent defect? It doesn’t have to mean the purchase fails, but it does take skill to remedy the situation without jeopardizing the contract. This may involve a price adjustment or a mutually agreed upon schedule of repair. Your professional Realtor knows the correct dialogue needed to address the defect while maintaining the integrity of the contract.

Weekly REPORT Oct 15 - Oct. 21, 2013   

Last week we pointed out the importance of investigating property features you can’t readily see, like the title search. Structural defects can also be difficult to spot for the untrained eye. While this is outside the scope of your Realtor’s expertise, the drafting of offers is not. A professional Realtor will recommend inserting a subject clause calling for a building inspection. This will allow you to negotiate the purchase of the home, but not be committed to buy unless you’re first happy with the inspection.

Weekly REPORT Oct 8 - Oct. 14, 2013   

They say you will know it’s the right home the first time you see it. But sometimes it’s what you can’t readily see that is more important - like the title search, for instance. Many properties have legal notations on title: building schemes, rights of way, easements, etc.  - which restrict the use and enjoyment of the property. Your professional Realtor is trained to identify these notations and help you understand their effect.  Of course, the time to do this is before you’re committed to the sale. It’s just one of the conditions or subject clauses that your Realtor will draft into your offer for your benefit.

Once we’ve qualified the buyers for your home, it’s time to show and sell! It’s our job to present the home to the buyers and help them decide if this might be the right one. Of course, the location, style and price have to fit. But floor plan, square footage and overall finishing have to be highlighted. And then there’s the offer with its title searches, inspections, inclusions, dates, etc. It is complex, detailed work, but it’s what we’re trained to do and what sets us apart as professionals.

                            Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall Weekly REPORT Sept 24 - Sept. 30, 2013   

We’ve explained that Open Houses aren’t a reliable way to find buyers for your home. Professional Realtors know a better way: have the buyers find you. How? We know most buyers and their agents start their search for real estate on the Internet. And all Internet searches for real estate lead to the MLS. So, by concentrating our efforts on MLS, it becomes less about finding ways to find buyers and more about using existing ways to let buyers and their agents find you - or in this case, your home. The MLS and the cooperation it fosters among agents does this very well  - no other  medium comes close.

                                Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall Weekly REPORT  Sept. 3-9, 2013   

We’ve talked about the ways sellers find buyers: Realtor’s recommendations and MLS on the Internet are the main avenues. But the professional Realtor knows that finding the buyer is only the beginning. Buyers must be interviewed carefully and qualified before anything else can happen. We are trained to ask the right questions. We also have access to mortgage brokers, bankers and other professionals who do the same and report back to us. Then, and only then, do we move forward with showings and offers. Managing buyers is a complex process, but one we’re trained to handle.

Listing your home on MLS is important, but proper exposure requires much more. While statistics show 38% of buyers find their property through MLS, Realtor recommendations and “for sale” signs make up over 50%. That's why we're a full service Real Estate office. We don't just post your listing on MLS and disappear. We have a real office, in a busy commercial location, with full time professionals on duty, working together to sell your property. We meet buyers at the office, provide information in person and simply sell more than the “no office, limited service” providers!

Weekly REPORT  Aug 20– Aug 26   

We’ve talked about how the MLS service fosters cooperation between different realtors and their companies. As it turns out, cooperation results in more sales and a better client experience. But how can it work when these same realtors and their companies are also staunch competitors? The MLS system has rules which all members must follow. From the listing format on the Internet, to showing etiquettes; from minimum listing periods to what’s allowed on signs – these rules ensure cooperation and the best results for buyers and sellers.

You probably know that “MLS" stands for "Multiple Listing Service". But do you know its origins? There was a time when Realtors only viewed and sold their own company’s listings. However some Realtors found benefits in cooperating with other companies. They learned that having access to other company’s listings and allowing showings on their own resulted in more sales. Over time this sort of cooperation became the norm and the MLS was system was formalized. Today almost all listings appear on one MLS system or another. The Real Estate Boards administer the systems and are responsible for integration with the Internet.

Weekly REPORT  Aug 6– Aug 12   

The latest real estate statistics for Vancouver are encouraging. Sales for July are much improved over last year. Actually, it's been the best July since 2009. The question is, will this mean more business for the Sunshine Coast? Over the years a busy Vancouver market has usually meant increased activity the Sunshine Coast. However, in recent years the retirement, recreation and investment market – mainly from the Lower Mainland - has been slower. Is this a short term aberration or are we becoming more of a locally driven market? Time will tell.

Weekly REPORT  July 23– July 29   

Negotiations normally take time and patience. But what happens when they stall? Sometimes the parties simply cannot get together and it may be appropriate just to step away from the table. However, negotiations can also fail when people get caught up in emotions or details. They can lose track of why they originally wanted to buy or sell. The professional realtor can help re-start negotiations by reminding the parties of what brought them to the market in the first place. Once the parties re-focus on their goals, they can often find ways to move the process forward.

Sellers usually don’t expect to get full price. But what about low-ball offers? Many sellers become offended and won’t even counter-offer. Professional realtors know that the buyer who makes an offer – even if it’s low - is better than the one who just looks and moves on. We know buyers may start low because they’re afraid of having their first offer accepted. They want to know they’ve negotiated well. We have seen this a time or two before. We know that, with some patience and experience, low ball offers can often be coaxed up to become acceptable offers.

Weekly REPORT  July 16– July 22   

How should you negotiate an offer that comes in soon after you’re listed? Some sellers worry they’re underpriced – they won’t counter-offer, or they want to raise the price. Your professional realtor prepared an evaluation. Rely on it. Also, in any market there are buyers who can’t find what they’re looking for. They’re highly motivated and act quickly on new listings. A professional realtor knows this, and knows you should negotiate these first offers carefully. They’re likely to be your best.
