Welcome to the Homes On the Sunshine Coast Blog
There is finally a little rain on the Sunshine Coast of BC. After week upon week of hot sunny weather, mother nature has blessed us and the gardens with a little of the rain that we almost welcome. I was at the bank at 7:30 this morning, it was raining quite hard and a car with Alberta plates parked beside me. As I drove out and saw where the car was from I had this urge to go to them to tell them that it's been sunny and hot for at least 5 weeks!! There are some people that think BC means rain, we do get our share of rain but my oh my do we also get fabulous weather year round!
We are doing Open Houses today and just left Truman Road where there is a beautiful West Coast post and beam home that has 140 feet of waterfront, a view that you have to experience to appreciate, and everything in a home that you could want for your family. This home is what the Sunshine Coast is all about.... lifestyle. Ask us about this lovely home, it's an excellent buy in this market.
The following are a few stats taken from the August 4th, 2010 report from The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV):
... 'Home sales activity in Greater Vancouver was quieter last month than most July's over the past decade, with residential sales, prices, and the number of homes listed for sale trending downward in recent months.
....“With the pace of home sales and listings easing off in our market, we’ve begun to see a levelling of home prices from the record highs seen in the spring, creating greater affordability,” Jake Moldowan, REBGV president said. “Activity in today’s marketplace is clearly trending in favour of buyers.”
...'It’s currently taking home sellers who work with a REALTOR®, on average, 45 days to sell their property (on the Sunshine Coast the average days to sell are 116), which is a historically healthy time frame for people on both sides of a transaction,” Moldowan said....
This is a interesting time to be a buyer. We are happy to sit together with you, listen and learn about your buying or selling needs, and create a working plan together. After all, at HomesOnTheSunshineCoast.com, Reaching YOUR Goal is OUR Mission.
