Mulled Wine to keep you warm and cozy this winter season!

Recipe:

Toast the spices: Add the allspice, cloves, star anise and cinnamon to the bottom of a pot. Toast over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant.

  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 3 Star Anise
  • 4 Whole Cloves
  • 4 All Spice Berries

Turn the heat to low. Pour in the wine and brandy and bring to below a simmer, just barely bubbling (don't boil or the alcohol will evaporate). Warm for 1 hour on low heat (don’t let it simmer). 

  • 1 Bottle of Wine: Merlot or Zinfandel (a fruity or full bodied white or red wine)
  • ¼ cup of Brandy (or an orange liqueur or tawny port)

Add the maple syrup or honey. The amount will depend on your sweetness level. Add 1 tablespoon at a time and tasted before adding more.

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of Maple Syrup or Honey

Garnish with orange slices and cranberries, then serve.

  • 2 small Fresh Oranges
  • 1 to 2 handfuls of Cranberries

For a non-alcoholic version of this cozy recipe to share with the whole family, young and old, try substituting apple cider for the wine and brandy.

Ever wish that REALTOR.ca listed the historical sale prices on a home you are interested in, whether it’s because you want to be better informed to prepare for your next real estate transaction or if you just like to 'nerd out' on real estate?

It’s finally happened!

On September 12, 2022, REALTOR.ca started showing historical sales transactions on their website. The home sales history will be displayed on all active listings for every sale associated with that address going back as far as the MLS® data exists, excluding the 12 months immediately preceding the listing date.

Let’s get started!

Go to the REALTOR.ca website: REALTOR.ca

Select your property listing and then look below the Description and Property Summary. You will find the Price History (excluding the preceding 12 months). Not all the information is visible yet and we aren’t sure when it will be there, but it's coming and I think this is a good start.

     

Any questions on this or to view/list your next real estate transaction, contact me. I look forward to sharing my real estate expertise with you!

Best regards,

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) has released its October 2022 housing market analysis and if you’ve been watching the economic news or discussing current events with your neighbours, then you might not be surprised by their comments.

   

It was reported that there was a 45.5 per cent decrease in residential property sales in Metro Vancouver from the previous year and was 33.3 per cent below the 10-year October sales average.

“Inflation and rising interest rates continue to dominate headlines, leading many buyers and sellers to assess how these factors impact their housing options,” Andrew Lis, REBGV’s director, economics and data analytics said. “With sales remaining near historic lows, the number of active listings continues to inch upward, causing home prices to recede from the record highs set in the spring of 2022.”  

“Recent years have been characterized by a frenetic pace of sales amplified by scarce listings on the market to choose from. Today’s market cycle is a marked departure, with a slower pace of sales and more selection to choose from,” Lis said. “This environment provides buyers and sellers more time to conduct home inspections, strata minute reviews, and other due diligence. With the possibly of yet another rate hike by the Bank of Canada this December, it has become even more important to secure financing as early in the process as possible.”

These are substantial changes to today's market.  Let’s discuss this new cycle and how it may benefit you and your neighbours.
