Sunshine! Sunday's Slug Races at Minter Gardens are only 3 days away on April 17th!

My Lord, no slugs? Are you kidding??
Yes %%FIRSTNAME we have a serious problem here as most slugs are still sleeping.
If you know of any young girls that would like to compete for the title of the Slug Queen or the Slug Princess, let us know. They could then be very busy attending major events throughout the province as the Ambassador for the International Slug Races.

Real Estate Market Projections!!
Yes the media can always put a positive spin on the current real estate market conditions but the facts are …. We just experienced the worst spring market that I can remember. With a near all time low over the last 6 months between 7% and 13% of the homes sold each month, that means for every 100 homes for sale about 90 sellers and their agents ended up very very disappointed and their home lost $5-10,000's as they chased the market down.
Homes from Mission to Chilliwack area went down $26,000 on average and yet Richmond went up near $300,000. For exact details follow the city updates below. We have all been waiting for the tsunami of Chinese buyers to come out to the Valley. Currently this buyer activity has now reached Coquiltam but has yet to cross the bridges into the Fraser Valley. The next several months do not look good and we project another $5,000 drop in most areas in the central or upper Fraser Valley but things could change quickly.. Call me for a current update. 604-217-3992

Market Update for Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack Feb 5 2011 w8c
%%FIRSTNAME I just love analyzing the market conditions to help protect peoples' home investment and to help them make informed decisions. For example in East vs West Abbotsford you will see perhaps how these areas are affected quite differently. From July of 2009 to January 1, 2010, Townline Road in the West Abbotsford area has gone up $45,000 and yet Mountain Village in East Abbotsford has gone down $7,000.
Right now Mountain Village is incredible value, with prices at $85,000 cheaper that East Abbotsford for the same 2,300 sq ft house, or $115,000 cheaper for a 3,100 sq ft house. In fact Mountain Village is the same or less expensive than Mission right now but that is another story. Click for more details
So, if you need some help planning ahead, buying or selling real estate just call me and let's have coffee.
