Thanks for visiting my website

As a CENTURY 21® Real Estate professional, I am dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service possible.

I specialize in Waterfront Property in both the Shuswap and North Okanagan . My personal knowledge of Shuswap  Lake and Okanagan Lake stems from owning property on both lakes for over 30 years.

 A good portion of Shuswap lake waterfront is not easily accessible by road. Fortunately for me, access to these unique properties is not a problem. I can access any waterfront property by boat, car and even by float plane. If you are thinking of listing your home or cottage on the lake, you should be talking  to me.

Let me assist you in finding your dream vacation property, in an area that is right for you, and in the price range you want. 

I look forward to the opportunity of working for you!

Ask Spencer

Should I be present during a showing of my house?

Answer:

I don't think its a good idea. Quite often potential buyers will be reluctant to talk openly with their Realtor about your home. Also I have found that with the owner present, potential  purchasers will spend less time looking at your house.

Make sure that your Agent has given you ample notice so that you have time to prepare your home and plan to have something to do once you leave. Its no fun just driving around the block for an hour.

Also,  Insist that your Realtor ask for  feedback from all showings. He or she will have to ask the Agents showing your house for feedback . How else are you going to know what buyers think of your house if you don't ask.

My wife and I had a beautiful home in Calgary that had 2 bedrooms and a nice den upstairs and 1 bedroom in the basement. We were happy with the floor plan because  we only had one child left at home and as a college student, he loved the privacy of the basement  bedroom. The house wasn't selling, I asked my Realtor why, once he started getting feedback for the showing Agents, he said everyone that looked at the house wanted 3 bedrooms up. With Calgary being a city full of high income Gen Xers with young children, that made  sense. So, I converted the office to a bedroom with a few small reno's and, Voila, the house sold to a young family with children from Grande Prairie. 

 

Should I get a home Inspection done.

Answer:

Yes, and your Realtor should write it into your offer. Your financing company will likely require that an inspection being done by a licensed inspector as well. Its better to be safe than sorry when it comes to big ticket items like a roof or the foundation. There is a myriad of things that an inspector will look at and report on that you nor your Realtor will know about just by viewing the house.

If you are a Seller, its not a bad idea to have and inspection done prior to listing your house. You don't want issues coming up down the road that could potentially derail the sale of your home. And if you already have a current inspection done by a licensed Inspector that works for you, often the buyers will accept it as well.
