Are you planning on making a move this summer? If you're selling your home, the perception might be that you can stick a For Sale sign in your yard, and buyers will be flocking by the hundreds, and you’ll be rolling in offers. We are in the midst of a great market for sellers, but you still need a strategy, especially for pricing.


Don't Price Low

Pricing your home too low may raise red flags with buyers. They might question the quality of your house. Buyers will like the lowest price. However, you'll lose money compared to what you could get when your home is priced right in this market.


Don't Price High

If you price your home too high in this market, your home will sit longer. You might have to lower the price, and potential buyers will ask questions.


Find the Sweet Spot

Pricing your home at market value is the sweet spot in this market. You'll create more buyer interest and potential bidding wars. You might be surprised at how much you get for your home and how fast it sells. I can help you determine your home's market value, and we'll price it right.

 

If you're planning on selling this summer, you're in the right market. However, when it comes to pricing your home, make sure you think about finding the sweet spot. Give me a call, and I'll help determine the price of your home so that you come out on top. Reply to this email or give me a call to schedule a free market evaluation.

In BC there are 5 common types of property ownership; Freehold, Strata, Co-Operative, Leasehold and Bareland Strata. There are advantages and disadvantages to each of the types of property ownership.  It’s important to know the differences  between the different types of property ownership when you’re shopping for a new home.

Freehold

Freehold, also known as fee simple, is the term typically referred to as ownership of a home. In this case, the owner is in full control over the land and buildings on it, subject to any rights of the Crown, local land-use bylaws and other restrictions.

Strata Titled

With strata title, an owner retains exclusive use and ownership of a specific housing unit and shared use of common areas like elevators, hallways, entertainment rooms and garages. This is used for apartments, townhouses and possibly duplexes.

Bare Land Strata

A bare land strata plan pertains to the land only and does not include the structures on the lot. In this instance, the strata corporation has no interest in the buildings on the land, so each individual owner is responsible for all maintenance, repair and insurance for his/her individual lot. However, there are often common properties and shared amenities that are maintained by monthly maintenance fees, such as clubhouses, street lamps, private roads and on-site services such as power, water and sewer.

Leasehold

This is when an owner purchases the rights to use a residential property for a long but limited period of time. Leaseholds are typically set for a period of 99 years, but only the remaining term is available for purchase. At the end of the leasehold, the property can be returned to the original owner, which is usually the municipality or the First Nations. The shorter the remaining time left, the less a buyer will be willing to pay.

Cooperative or Co-op

This is where each owner owns a share in the cooperative association and each shareholder is assigned a particular unit for living Housing co-ops typically have rules that must be followed and the owners work together to manage the co-op.

VANCOUVER, BC – March 2, 2022 – The Metro Vancouver* housing market saw steady home sales activity, modest increases in home listings and continued upward trends in pricing in February.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 3,424 in February 2022, an 8.1 per cent decrease from the 3,727 sales recorded in February 2021, and a 49.8 per cent increase from the 2,285 homes sold in January 2022.

Last month’s sales were 26.9 per cent above the 10-year February sales average.

“As we prepare to enter what’s traditionally the busiest season of the year, the Metro Vancouver housing market is seeing more historically typical home sale activity and a modest uptick in home listing activity compared to last year,” Taylor Biggar, REBGV Chair said.

There were 5,471 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in February 2022. This represents an 8.4 per cent increase compared to the 5,048 homes listed in February 2021 and a 31.2 per cent increase compared to January 2022 when 4,170 homes were listed.

The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 6,742, a 19.3 per cent decrease compared to February 2021 (8,358) and a 19.1 per cent increase compared to January 2022 (5,663).

“Despite having a higher volume of people listing their homes for sale in February, the region’s housing market remains significantly undersupplied, which has been pushing home prices to new highs month after month,” Biggar said.
