Imagine you've found the perfect home. You love it. You've made an offer that's been accepted. So far so good! The only catch? You've wisely made the offer conditional on passing a professional home inspection.

 

What happens if that home inspection reveals a major issue?

 

First, you should know that, depending on the age of the property, a home inspection will typically turn up at least a few areas of concern. The inspector might find loose insulation in the attic that is thinning out or roofing shingles that will need replacing in two or three years.

 

Issues like those are not usually deal-breakers.

 

However, if the home inspector finds a major issue — such as old wiring that's worn and presents a safety...

For some people, the thought of listing their home for sale is stressful. They worry about all the things they have to do — and all the things that might go wrong.


Luckily, it doesn't have to be that way. Here are some tips for making your home sale go smoothly:


· Give yourself time to prepare. If you're thinking of selling six months from now, start preparing your property now. Do any necessary staging, and get it looking its best. Avoid doing these tasks at the last minute.

· Set the right price. Pricing your property too high will likely result in few, if any, buyers coming to see it. You might end up having to lower your price later, causing your home to linger even longer on the market. That's stress you don't...

Metro Vancouver* home sales in 2018 were the lowest annual total in the region since 2000.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that sales of detached, attached and apartment properties reached 24,619 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in 2018, a 31.6 per cent decrease from the 35,993 sales recorded in 2017, and a 38.4 per cent decrease compared to the 39,943 residential sales in 2016.

       While we both love this time of year and welcome the opportunity to express our

sincere appreciation, we probably all realize it's DAD that continues to write the letter. You'll

know  immediately if/when Colin decides to take on this project. Your Christmas letter will likely

be full of food related stories and they'll be a LINK to some of his favorite food recipes for the

holidays. (Kidding aside, Colin is quite a chef and we take full advantage of his passion for

preparing food as often as we can)

       It was a big year for the Thornton's. Colin got married and dad started a house reno.

Colin's happy and I like to remind myself that PERSONAL RENOVATIONS will make me a...
