New Year, New Intentions. What's Your Plan?

January 3, 2012 - Updated: January 3, 2012

Welcome to 2012!!  

Hope your holidays were filled with lots of laughter and some good eating.  Did you get a chance to write some new goals?  We all know that the beginning of the year is a great time to re-evaluate and re-focus on what's important to us individually.  But let's look at this another way.

The new year is usually a time for "resolutions".  Some of the more popular ones?  Losing weight and quitting smoking.  Yet only 46% of people keep their resolutions past the 6 month mark.  So why bother making them in the first place?

Because having goals keeps us in line and focused on what we want out of life.  With no plan, we are likely to get distracted.  But maybe it's the "resolution" that throws us off.  Why not concentrate on what we INTEND to do and write out a step-by-step plan on how to get there?  For example, if you INTEND to lose weight, then plan your meals weekly, drink lots of water, and have a workout plan for the week.

For us, we're prepared to even better our skills at working with you.  

Hope you have some great new intentions for the year.  Cheers!

Saying Hello to Summer!

July 9, 2011

RE/MAX Premier’s 2nd Annual Yard Sale for the Cure was a smashing success, raising over $12,000 for breast cancer research.  Our office was the 3rd highest fundraising office in Ontario.  The rain held off and we had a great turnout, thanks for all of your support!

On another fundraising note—St. John Bosco Catholic School raised over $1800 in support of the Angels From Heaven Foundation with the bake sale.  A big thank you to all the students and teachers that helped to put this event together.

It’s bathing suit season and I am kicking it into high gear—Mom has started up a weekly walking/jogging club in Woodbridge and I am so in!!  Just 15 pounds left to my weight goal and it is being very stubborn, but it’s ok—the idea is to get healthy and I feel much better than I used to! 

I hope you had a great start to the summer, cheers!

Less Inventory = Buyers Competing for Homes = Great Sellers' Market!!!

February 18, 2011

Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 3,084 sales during  the first two weeks of February 2011 – a 13% decrease compared to the first two weeks of  February 2010.

"We are on pace for a strong sales result in February, but transactions will come in lower than the record result reported last February. Sales remain strong because the GTA resale market contains a diversity of housing types catering to a wide array of home ownership needs," said Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) President Bill Johnston.

The average price for transactions during the first 14 days of February was $451,257, representing a five% increase compared to the first two weeks of February 2010.

"Average selling price growth for existing homes is expected to range between three and five percent this year. Tighter market conditions over the last four months have pushed price growth to the top end of this range," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

New Year, New Resolutions

January 12, 2011

I have no complaints about 2010.  It was a great year to get started in the real estate business, and a great year for the real estate market all around.  TREB reports that there were 86,170 sales of single family dwellings in 2010, down only slightly from the 87,308 sales in 2009.  Average selling price has increased to $431,463.  Who can complain about that???

As a new agent, I spent much of 2010 learning how to negotiate in a multiple offer situation, getting into my groove with first-time buyers, dealing with other more experienced agents, and becoming a young business professional.  It has been a huge learning curve and I loved (almost) every minute of it!

Thinking back, I see the past year to be one of change.  Mortgage rates have been historically low, so in the first few months of the year buyers flooded the market and caused bidding wars.  Transitioning into the fall months, the market changed slightly - we experienced a more balanced market where prices weren't as inflated and it took homes longer to sell.  

I've met a lot of people I wouldn't have had the pleasure of meeting otherwise, and realized one thing:  I love this business!  So if you are thinking of buying or selling a home in the next 60-90 days... send us an email or call us direct.  2010 has been a year of ups and slightly smaller downs, and we'd love to help you through the process.
