 Imagine this scenario...

 

You're shopping for a new home. You drive to visit a recent listing. As you walk through the front doors, you're impressed. Every room looks fantastic. You see yourself relaxing on the spacious patio, cooking in the modern kitchen, and enjoying evenings with the family in the cozy living room.

 

Your emotions are on overdrive. This is your dream home!

 

Should you make an offer? Probably. In fact, you should make that decision quickly in case there are other interested buyers.

 

However, your decision shouldn't be guided purely by emotion. You want to make sure you take practical matters into consideration too.

 

For example, you'll want to consider:


·    Is the property within your price range?

·    Does it have everything you need?

·    Do you like the neighbourhood?

·    How old is the property? Are there items, such as the furnace, that may need to be replaced soon?

·    Will it need any major repairs or upgrades?

·    What are the average monthly costs of carrying the home? (Property taxes, utilities, etc.)


Once you've considered the purchase of the home from a practical standpoint, you'll have a lot more confidence in your decision when you make an offer.

 

Need help? Call me.

VANCOUVER, BC – November 2, 2018 –Home sale activity across Metro Vancouver* remained below long-term historical averages in October.


The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 1,966 in October 2018, a 34.9 per cent decrease from the 3,022 sales recorded in October 2017, and a 23.3 per cent increase compared to September 2018 when 1,595 homes sold.


Last month’s sales were 26.8 per cent below the 10-year October sales average.


“The supply of homes for sale today is beginning to return to levels that we haven’t seen in our market in about four years,” Phil Moore, REBGV president said. “For home buyers, this means you have more selection to choose from. For sellers, it means your home may face more competition, from other listings, in the marketplace.”


There were 4,873 detached, attached and apartment homes newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in October 2018. This represents a 7.4 per cent increase compared to the 4,539 homes listed in October 2017 and a 7.7 per cent decrease compared to September 2018 when 5,279 homes were listed.


The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 12,984, a 42.1 per cent increase compared to October 2017 (9,137) and a 0.8 per cent decrease compared to September 2018 (13,084).


For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for October 2018 is 15.1 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 10.3 per cent for detached homes, 17.3 per cent for townhomes, and 20.6 per cent for condominiums.


Generally, analysts say that downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below the 12 per cent mark for a sustained period, while home prices often experience upward pressure when it surpasses 20 per cent over several months


“Home prices have edged down between three and five per cent, depending on housing type, in our region since June,” said Moore. “This is providing a little relief for those looking to buy compared to the all-time highs we’ve experienced over the last year.”


The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential homes in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,062,100. This represents a one per cent increase over October 2017 and a 3.3 per cent decrease over the last three months.


Sales of detached homes in October 2018 reached 637, a 32.2 per cent decrease from the 940 detached sales recorded in October 2017. The benchmark price for detached properties is $1,524,000. This represents a 5.1 per cent decrease from October 2017 and a 3.9 per cent decrease over the last three months.


Attached homes sales in October 2018 totalled 344, a 37.5 per cent decrease compared to the 550 sales in October 2017. The benchmark price of an attached home is $829,200. This represents a 4.4 per cent increase from October 2017 and a 2.8 per cent decrease over the last three months.

When you're having a garage sale, one of the toughest tasks is pricing your items. If you put a price tag on your old golf clubs that’s too high, no one will buy them. If you make the price too low, they might sell quickly, but you’ll spend the rest of the day wondering if you could have gotten more!

 

It's similar to selling your home — except with your home, the stakes are much higher. You want to price your property to sell, but you don’t want to leave any money on the table.

 

How do you accomplish that?

 

Setting the right list price for your home requires a combination of skilled calculation and industry savvy.

 

Let's start with the "calculation" part...

 

When you work with me, I'll review recently sold properties that are similar to yours in type, size, features and location. Then, using that data, we’ll calculate a range that represents your property's "current market value."

 

For example, consider a spacious 15-year-old towhome  in a nice neighbourhood. If similar homes in the area have sold for $800,000  - $900,000 in the last six months, then it's obvious that your home should sell in that range too. A list price above or below that range would be in the danger zone.

 

But skilled calculation is only half the task.

 

Setting your list price also requires expertise in the local market, combined with good old-fashioned gut instinct. That instinct comes from being on the front lines of many property transactions.

 

That's why working with a good real estate salesperson is so important, when you’re deciding on the list price for your home.

Nothing ordinary about this townhome! This is your fully detached house in the heart of the City. Enjoy full access to all Strathcona and Downtown have to offer--walk, cycle, bus or carshare; everything is mere minutes away.


This is a fully detached three bedroom, three bathroom, home with private front garden and shared back yard. This house has all the character you are looking for--high-end wood-frame windows throughout, heritage exterior and incredible private front perennial garden--but was built from the ground up in 2011/2012 with all the mod cons including sprinklers, alarms and video security system.


There has only been one family in this home which has been lovingly maintained. Pride of ownership is evident throughout, and the current owners have invested in a number of significant upgrades: complete renovation of chef's kitchen (2017); complete renovation of powder-room (2016); complete entryway renovation with modern tile and fitted cupboards (2016); built in cabinetry in kids room (2017); built-in electric fireplace and entertainment centre and fitted cabinets in the master bedroom (2016); built in storage bench and outdoor kitchen on the back deck (2018). Craftsman style finishes, midcentury modern fixtures, marble, brushed brass, stainless steel, quartz--it's all here. This home sits on a large, clean and dry crawlspace accessible by interior stairs with plenty of room to store all of your treasures.


This home is perfect for  both the busy urban family and anyone looking for an oasis in the City.  Walk the kids to French Immersion at Lord Strathcona Elementary, take them to ballet or ju-jitsu at the Community Centre, meet the neighbours at McLean Park. Putter in the fully-gated back yard and enjoy the hummingbirds, bees and butterflies. Sit on the front deck and unwind as the friendly Strathcona neighbours stop to say hello, or cosy up next to your lovely gas fireplace with a glass of wine while the kids sleep upstairs.
