Hi Everyone, It has been a few months since I have updated my blog and what can I say...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 past 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 images 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 purchase. In the area? Stop into our new location and let me know what I can do for you. I would love to chat and discuss your real estate needs so we can start working together right away
