It's been awhile since I submitted an entry into my Blog. The reason, I was ran off my feet last year buying and selling homes for clients. It was a remarkable year.  The Kelowna and area market did very well in sales. The main question everyone is asking , did the prices go up? In general the average home went up in kelowna about 2.35 %. Peachland a bit less at 1.09%, but lakeview has alot to do with homes in Peachland. I had many people come see me and some happy ...

2015 Year Ahead

Posted on February 14, 2015 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

2014 was a excellent year for sales in the Okanagan. This year January started off a bit slow, but things are picking up. The doom and gloom coming from the low barrel of oil is threating to ruin the party. My projection we will slightly below volume from last year, but will have another excellent year. Many factors to consider, loss jobs in Alberta, consumer confidence, real estate sales in turnover rate slower in Alberta. The benefits of this spring and the rest of the year...

Christmas is only a few days away, and before we know it will be 2014. It’s the time of the year when real estate is winding down for the holidays and I have time reflect over the last year and think about all the good that was done finding many families new homes here in the Okanagan over the past year. Many of these families are going to enjoy their first Okanagan Christmas which is nice. I have to personally thank all of my clients for their trust in me this year ...

Warm weather, sunny skies, and a new revamped website is what's new in the Okanagan. We are getting geared up for another busy year in real estate. I have to thank all of my clients who let me help them find a new home in 2012. I was very lucky to make the top 20 % for production in the world in regards to all Coldwell Banker agents. It's not about awards, but I think back to all the people who moved to the sunny Okanagan from all parts of the world and are really enjoy...

What does the future hold for us in real estate entering the spring season? A review of the past few months can be described as follows: sales slower than 2010 and home prices a bit lower in selected areas. There is a renewed hope that the spring/summer season going to change for the better. The forecast by many is a steady stream of new sales. Buyers that had previously taken a look and see approach in the winter, are going to enter into the active market and b...

Fall Real Estate Review

Posted on September 23, 2010 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (0)

The summer sun is fading away and the warm sunny days are coming to a close. The summer in the Okanagan in regards to real estate sales was not at it's best. July and August were less than productive than anticipated. The word out there was that prices were going to soften, and maybe the ideal time to buy would be in October through to Christmas. The prices of homes in certain area have slightly fallen but not to any great extend. There is however some great dea...

May Flowers-We Hope!

Posted on April 30, 2010 at 2:35 AM Comments comments (0)

It's a cold wet rainy end to April, cool and wet in the Okanagan, snowstorm in Calgary as we head into the month of May. I don't think anyone minds the rain or even the snow (Calgary residents might debate this) which is great for the Okanagan and Southern Alberta. Okanagan Lake is at a low water level, a few people are waiting for the water to rise to get their sailboards unstuck, and launch their boats. It looked so promising a week ago, but things will change...

HST Tax - Overview

Posted on April 17, 2010 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Well the sun is shining, and so is the real estate market in the Okanagan. After a sluggish start in the first three months of the year, things are heating up. It's been evident that the market is catching up to the hot real real estate markets in Vancouver and Toronto. The steady sales of homes might be the result of the spring season, or the result of rising interest rates and the anticipation of the HST tax coming into effect July 1, 2010.
