It's December, the weather is mild and it's going to be another great day here on the Sunshine Coast of BC.
Yesterday we had a day full events. We put up a SOLD sign on a lovely property, that's always great! We celebrated with some clients, that always great too! We were invited to list and sell a lovely waterfront property, that was excellent as well. We also received an email from a Realtor saying that we as a Team are 'shaking things up' here on the Coast in the Real Estate community.
We work smart and hard, we do whatever we need to do to MAKE THINGS HAPPEN for our clients, and we put our Clients First. As a result, we are a strong and successful Team. As Shay always says, 'The Only Place that Success Comes Before Work is in the Dictionary!'. So true... Every day is another great day here at Homes On The Sunshine Coast as with each passing day we ask for feedback, we learn more and we get better at what we do.
The following is an article from 'Propertywire.ca'. This is just one more opportunity to share with you that if you are considering buying or selling - now - is a great time to be doing so. Read on.....
The Canadian housing market had been somewhat unpredictable over the last three years. It was hot in 2007, then there was a world financial crisis in late 2008, with some reasonable return to normalcy in late 2009 and 2010.
So, finally the pundits are prepared to admit that we now have normal market conditions. That basically means that no one is apt to express unduly optimistic or pessimists views.
If you simply examine longer range time periods, like 7 to 10 years, then nothing much happened in the market. It’s only when to look month to month and compare the market to the previous year’s sales activities that there are wild and somewhat unpredictable patterns.
It is clear that Canadians value real estate as an investment, even more so, after the great stock market crash in October 2008.
Sales across the country are taking place, inventory is appropriate, interest rates attractive and the cost of housing in terms of its percentage share of household income remains at about 32%.
Both TD Bank and BMO indicated that the market is starting to “normalize”, as did the Canadian Real Estate Association.
That means it’s a good time to buy, and it’s also a good time to sell.
Shay and I are here and happy to sit down with you to talk about your Real Estate needs and goals. Give us a call and we will set a time to get together.
