Why you should use a Realtor™ to sell your home.

It’s easy to assume that you don’t need a Realtor™ to sell your home. But using an experienced Realtor™ can bring a lot of value to your sale. Here are a few benefits to using a Realtor™:

1: You’ll probably make more money.

A July 2017 study by Collateral Analytics found that For Sale by Owners (FSBOs) rarely make any savings, and in some cases the sale may end up costing more. The study showed that FSBOs sold for around 6% less than similar properties sold by Realtor™.

Advantages of Buying a House that Needs Work

There’s no doubt about it. Buying a home that is “move in ready” is a real convenience. All you need to do is get your belongings in place, and you’re ready to enjoy living in your new home. You don’t even need to paint. That’s why move-in-ready homes tend to attract more buyers.

However, there are advantages to buying a property that needs work. And, if you’re currently shopping for a new home, a listing that requires some repairs, upgrades, or renovations might be worth considering.


Properties that need work tend to be priced lower than comparable movein-ready listings. Depending on market demand, the price savings can range from modest (just a few thousand dollars) to substantial.

Also, homes...

Springtime in the Shuswap

As winter releases its icy grip, the snow starts to melt away, revealing beneath it the lush soils that soon begin to thrive with life. Springtime is here in the Shuswap, and now we can begin to see what a wonderful place this is, and why is so good to move here.

Temperatures can still be chilly overnight here, but daytime warms up and the afternoons can be pleasantly warm, stimulating the growth of plants, flowers, trees and grasses.

And of course, it pays to be aware that bears come out of hibernation at this time, so if you go out spring hiking on the many beautiful trails, make sure you take your bear bangers!
