The Arrival of Fall

Although the local 2018  real estate market has trended lower than 2017 its not surprising as that was an unusually busy year. With house prices jumping dramatically to meet the demand of buyers who "discovered" Brantford and Brant County and the historically low resale home prices relative to the East like Hamilton and the GTA and North in KW that have significantly higher home prices, this area was overdue to play catch up. The bubble has yet to burst and indications are that won't be happening. A return to a more balanced market is expected as interest rates rise and the impact of the mandated stress test for mortgage qualification are stabilizing house sales and slowing a market that was running wild. Inventory is gradually rising and the average time to sell is getting longer which works well for buyers as they have more time to view homes and have more variety to select from. If you're thinking of buying or selling in this changing market contact Alex to get a clear picture of what is changing and how it could impact you.

5 Home selling myths 

Choosing an Investment Property

With all the excitement in the financial and stock markets many investors are returning to the age old strength of Real Estate Investments. The first decision is what area of real estate you are comfortable with. Residential and commercial properties each have advantages and disadvantages as does investing in future development lands. With so many options and variables speaking with an experienced REALTOR ® like myself is the first step. By discussing different opportunities and your needs I strive to find a match and then analyze each potential investment for the key factor "will it make money"! We move forward only once we have done the required due diligence to insure that you make informed decisions and are ready to let your money work for you. If you are interested in an informal chat about your choices and future in the real estate market call or email.

 

My Experience Works for You

As owner/operator of a design/build construction company for over 20 years and having received Provincial Accreditation for Residential Design, I know and understand quality construction and design from the foundation up. 

For Sellers: This experience allows me to provide you with a significant advantage in the selling process because I am able to quickly identify potential issues before a buyer does, and recommend cost effective ways to remedy them. This prevents problems that could cause you to end up with less money for the sale of your house, or worse, no sale at all.

For Buyers: The toughest task every buyer faces is to eliminate homes from consideration that are unsuitable or have significant issues that will add substantially to the cost to remedy. Each home has its own unique character and quirks. My proven ability to recognize and differentiate minor issues from major ones means that I can assist you to make informed decisions and to negotiate a fair price for your next, or first, home purchase.
