Steps To Buy In A Hot Market

Right now we are in a hot sellers market which is fabulous if you are planning on selling, but challenging when you are looking to buy.

5 year Market Review

As most of you know the market is HOT HOT HOT🔥🔥🔥 . I’d like to take a few minutes and talk about this and how it affects buyers. First, I often get asked, “when will this market calm down and will the market crash?” Obviously, I do not have an answer to this or a crystal ball. (If I did, that lotto max might me mine 😉 ) Here’s what I can say. The first couple months of the year are very busy. Inventory is low and we have more buyers looking for property than we have properties available to […]

What is a buyers agent and why you need one.

What is a buyers agent and why you need one. So what is a buyers agent? Some of you may have heard the term but what does it actually mean?  As real estate professionals we work with both buyers and sellers.

Is Winter The Right Time To Move

Here’s a great article regarding selling in the winter. https://www.realtor.ca/blog/postpage/11471/1362/5-reasons-winter-is-a-chill-time-to-buy-a-house?fbclid=IwAR3YbWSdq0gaUMOzxoMvLcrzLVI7FKfm6nHUXlzPqsPSueGhco7TdWQBSh0 I know, I know,  most of us dislike winter, it’s cold, dreary, and dirty.  That being said after the holidays there are hardly any houses on the market, yet there are always people either looking to buy or having to buy for whatever reason.  The spring market always starts off very slow. However for the last couple of years the sale prices are very competitive. I have always encouraged people that are thinking of selling in March or April to put their house up a couple months early.  You can […]
