Happy Holidays! I hope you had an incredible year in 2016.
As you all know from my yearly updates we love to travel and are still managing to get some traveling done but it seems to be even more challenging with a toddler and all the extra STUFF. Car seats, strollers, etc so I know those of you with kids (and some of you with many!) can appreciate the challenge. We did get to BC again to see family plus Mexico more recently. We also bought a cozy cabin at Morin Lake this summer so I actually took most weekends away…I can’t say “off” as I always have my phone but away was a nice change and the view while doing work is worth it!
It was a busy year again for my business and I have many of you to thank for that. Maintaining the work life balance is always interesting but having a home office means I get to see Grayson a lot throughout the day and those moments I am grateful for.
Real estate in and around Saskatoon continues to be busy. 2016 saw a few fluctuations in the market and some overall price stability at year-end. We saw a decrease in the number of new housing starts by builders and thankfully have seen the condo market starting to rebound. This and the luxury housing categories have been the most affected by the Saskatoon real estate market this year. 2017 is expected to continue to remain a ‘buyer’s market’ and see a continued decrease in new home construction starts. Late 2017/2018 is when we are expected to see the Saskatoon real estate market return to more ‘normal’ market conditions that we’re used to seeing.
Century 21 Fusion continues to support the Air Miles program as well as focusing on Easter Seals as our charity. We are trying to send more kids to camp every year and with our charity events and donations we achieve this goal year over year so thank you for supporting Century 21 which gives us the opportunity to send so many deserving kids to camp!
As always I want to thank all of you for my continued success. I can’t do it without such great support and from your referrals. Thank you again for your business and I look forward to hearing from you in the New Year!
Enjoy your year and keep in touch!
