As we begin a new year I find that the real estate market is continually optimistic. With the historical ways the market rises and falls, this year should be on the rise as far as sales and prices. This is good news for those of you who are looking to sell, as well as those who are buying as the buyers can still find deals, before the prices start to increase. I know the assessments have recently come out and while some areas have seen an increase in their assessment value, others have stayed the same and still others have gone down. Keep in mind, that this is merely an assessment, not market value. The market value of your home takes many things into account and is not solely based on the assessment.
I am really looking forward to the spring season and the flurry of activity that is expected. Chase and the North Shuswap will be among the many areas I expect to show an increase this year and I'm looking forward to helping out friends I have and new friends I hope to make!
