Almaguin…A Winter Delight

Hi Everyone,  It has been  a few months since I have updated my blog and what can I say..mom-87th-birthday-2016.Life Happens.  Many things have changed personally for me in the past few months, like many of you I now have to deal with an aging parent that needs assistance.  I am very grateful to have this extra time with my mom however it has certainly been an adjustment for both of us.

Real estate however continues to move quickly with the shift to a seller’s market making it difficult for buyers to move quickly enough to purchase what they have viewed. I listed and sold two properties this sold winterpast month selling within 2 days at full asking price.  This kind of activity, although common in the large urban centres, does not give  Buyers a great deal of time to research the necessary data on the property.  It is more important than ever to use a local REALTOR® to protect your interest and make sure you have the knowledge to make an informed decision.

Yes, the Snow in Almaguin is deep however our technology helps you make a purchase or sell much easier by having seasonal google earth views of properties and up to date summer photos.  With these types of ibarn from porchmages as a buyer you are able to determine what is lying beneath the snow and not get a surprise in the spring that leaves you with the cost and inconvenience of many trips to the land fill.  Technology can also assist in viewing shorelines of waterfront properties or elevations of lots which helps the agent better promote the sellers property.  The snow however does make it difficult if not impossible to check septic systems and roof shingles  so documentation on these items is important to obtain

Aerial drones also give a great perspective of the overall property and surroundings.  With many of these tools winter sales of properties are soaring and most Buyers are no longer waiting until spring to make their purchaimg_20170208_111118se.  In the area? Stop into our new location and let me know what I can do for you.  I wouimg_20170208_114453ld love to chat and discuss your real estate needs so we can start working together right away

About Louisa Moffit

I have been a REALTOR® for the past 21 years and love the area and communities I work in. When showing property or taking listings I always travel with my four legged companions. My clients and I enjoy their company when walking through the forest viewing pristine vacant property which they are interested in purchasing. My dog’s antics through the snow is also a source of amusement to everyone. Getting serious however… viewing properties throughout the area can be a daunting task without the expertise of a real estate agent who knows the area well. That is why I am your “Go To” REALTOR® for Undiscovered Cottage Country – The Almaguin Highlands
