The Canadian Lakes Housing Market is starting out strong. In the past three months inventory is down 7% and sales are up 12.5%, and prices have gone up a bit as well. That is a great trend. We still have a nice selection of inventory with about 50/50 waterfront to non-waterfront. The homes that sold in December were averaging a $186,750 sales price. Not bad for the Canadian Lakes Housing Market which has a $198,000 average list price on current market homes.
Get in on the action in 2013 with low interest rates still favorable for the buyer. This is a good time to capture a good buy while prices remaining stable. Before long we should see prices starting to creep up, so get a good deal now!
Here’s hoping you all had a Happy New Year! Let’s celebrate in 2013 with all our family and friends throughout the year. A great way to be with family and friends all year long is with a vacation home. Why not consider Canadian Lakes your destination for that wonderful gathering place.

Winter is on the way – that is for sure. We can expect snow any day now. The mild weather this year has us fooled but we know that winter is on the way. It is also a time when people like to “take their home off the market”. Sometimes that can be a mistake as it interrupts the marketing. Two things that we can also be sure of in Real Estate; to sell a home it needs to have a fair market price, or a longer period of time on the market. If it is priced right, it should sell in a fair amount of time. If it does not, and seems priced high for the market area, it will take a longer period of time to sell. Keep up on the market in your area with a good Real Estate Agent!
Enjoy the upcoming winter season, and as we look forward to the next season, if you are dreaming of that summer property, it’s never too early to start looking. There are great buys out there. Don’t forget, winter is on the way!

Fall is a great time for home buying. The weather is still nice most of the time and the kids are in school. It’s a nice time for home buying trips to look at fall colors. Retired people are also slowing down in the fall as the kids are busy with their families this time of year. Fall home buying is a great time to invest in a property. Prices are lower than in the summer and you still have time to get into a new home before the winter holiday season. So if you are thinking of a fall home buying trip, let me help you with your shopping. I can set up homes for viewing and walk you through the home buying process. Let this fall be your time for home buying. Come and see our great inventory today. Click here for more information on fall home buying.
The keys to a new home may very well be had through remodeling. Is your home currently on the market? Well, if you are wanting to sell quickly, the best bet is having a home that has been updated. Another sale this week and the key to this new home was a remodeled kitchen. We looked at seven homes, and the buyers decision was based mostly on the fact that the home had been completely remodeled. The home was all new inside – floors, paints, bathrooms as well as a kitchen upgrade with new cabinets and new stainless steel appliances. The location was a secondary choice to the renovations. The past few sales I have had also ended with a similar result, making it clear that the key to a new home for buyer’s is as new an interior as they can get.
What is your number one priority when looking at a new home? Let me know – I’m curious if this is a trend. I would appreciate hearing from you.
It’s official – the time for school has come. While parents are proud to see their little ones going off to new and exciting school days, somewhere deep down they are thinking, whew – summer was hectic and I’m glad it’s over. Time for school can mean more time for parents to do parent things. Time for school can also be a time for parents to reflect on the summer past and wonder what would make it more relaxing. Have you thought about a summer cottage? It could be just the thing to bring the family together and help you relax while having fun. There are still plenty of warm sunny days to explore homes for sale. So while your little one is spending time in school, do a little parent shopping. I can help you find that perfect summer home – and make your next summer an unforgetable one.
Labor Day at the Lakes is here this weekend. Wow – I cannot believe this summer is about over. We had a great July in Canadian Lakes with plenty of wonderful weather. August has felt a bit like September but we cannot complain about this past week. I have had the opportunity to get in a bit of golf this summer as well – which has been nice. Even thought people will be winding down the cottage season as Labor Day at the Lakes approaches, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the summer season through September. The lakes will be full of activity through September and some of October. So, enjoy your Labor Day at the Lakes! If you get a chance to look at homes, we still have a great selection.
