News from Dave

In this month’s “News from Dave” we want to welcome some great new people to our community, and discover how to Sell or Buy in this Crazy Real Estate Market….

One of great parts of being a Real Estate guide is the opportunities to meet new people from all over the lower mainland, and over the last couple months I have meet some great people (not meaning to sound like Donald Trump) if your reading this for the first time… Welcome, and my hope is that you will find these next few minutes helpful as you look to make a move, or know someone who is planning on moving in the next three months.

Unless you live in another province, you may have heard that the Vancouver and Fraser Valley Real Estate Market is soaring hot! Does that mean all real estate is selling fast? Well no. Detached Houses especially those that are at the entry level in your community are selling briskly, often over the list price, and with multiple offers happening. Over the past year we have seen home prices rise, and because of the current lack of inventory, we will continue to see that trend. The rise of the housing market has already priced some people out of the ability to buy a home in certain communities, so many are looking east into the Valley or buying larger Townhouses.

Speaking of Townhouses and Condos, we are seeing an increase in activity with small gain in values. If you are considering downsizing from a house to a condo or townhouse, now would be a great time to do that. So here are my top three pieces of advice this month: 

  1. Don’t get caught up in the panic. Yes if you own a home its a sellers market, but remember it can be challenging to find that next dream home.
  2. Seek out coaching and get that essential advice. Your situation is unique and it’s vital to discover how to have a “cool head” in this current market.
  3. Book an appointment with me this coming week. If you’re looking  to buy or sell, call me.  Whether it’s getting top dollar for your hard earned home or making sure you succeed in multiple offer situations, my goal is to give my clients a world class real estate experience.

Till next month, enjoy our spring and thanks for not keeping me a secret with your friends or relatives.
