"Happy New Year"

 

We arrived back from Maui January 9th and the month just slipped away from us. All of a sudden it is February and time to say "Happy Valentine's Day" as well. The market was very active throughout December and continued through January. We are expecting a banner year as the economy is strong and the interest reates are amazingly low! If you are coming up for renewal on your mortgage please give us a call to talk about your options.

 

  • REBGV President Rosario Setticasi commented, "we're seeing trends emerge in our market that favor buyers, such as increased selection and more stability in pricing compared to this time last year." "Last month's activity tells us that competition amongst home buyers was reduced in January, which means individuals looking to purchase a home had more time to do their homework, consult with their Realtor, and make a decision."
  • January's new listing count was the highest total in Greater Vancouver since 1995.
