Wrap Up:


Now comes the time when we enter into what is traditionally considered a slower period for the real estate market, when we expect to see less impressive statistics, and being a seller with an active listing on the market can feel a bit more stressful. However, have no fear Sellers, we are still experiencing a reasonably healthy market for selling, albeit you must be sharp on your price to effect a sale, so If you are considering listing your property, now could be the time to get into the game and talk strategy with a knowledgeable listing agent today.  

If you're selling and considering moving into a new property smaller than your current one, our new video "Downsizing To A Smaller Home." might be of interest to you!



Buyers, the leaves may be starting to change and the market may be starting to slow down for the year, but this month we still saw healthy listing numbers for a September. Which means, there could still be the opportunity to get you into the home of your dreams for the holidays or at least before interest rates increase even more. However, in order to get a great price or a leg up on a desirable property, you need a real estate expert to guide you in your journey, reach out to our office today to get started!

If you're looking for a bit of entertainment, a distraction from the market doldrums, or just a new insight into the area's best coffee shops, our new video  "Realtors in Coffee Shops getting Coffee." might be interesting to you!

Here is our feature listing of the month, a potential filled property with a renovated home and flat, usable acreage. View our listing video for 8935 Kalamalka Road here:
