Call to Borrow Garage Sale Signs
We've just said goodbye to another strong summer season in the Metro Vancouver market. 

As you make plans for 2018, I'd to encourage you all to take a look at my no BS menu of services , especially if you are looking to buy or sell a home in the year ahead. Many people who are buying or selling property don't always understand where their realtor fees go. With my no BS menu of services, I try to educate individuals who are new and old to the property market while also giving them the choice in what level of service they receive. This is one of the areas that makes me unique as a realtor as I give you the choice in the level of service I provide depending on the support you need. You'll see that there are 4 packages that I offer so check them out today and get in touch with me to learn more about how we can work together. 

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. As I mentioned in previous newsletters, I've been taking the time to build up my online and social media presence over the summer and I've realized that when someone takes the time to recount a positive experience, it speaks volumes. With this in mind, I would like to request a small favour - a testimonial that will give others a sense of the service I offered you. It doesn't have to be very long, just a few sentences about your experience working with me would be appreciated.

If you would be willing to do this you can simply Click Here to be directed to my Google page. If that doesn't work for some reason you can Google Barrie Seaton - Your Local Realtor and you should see me come up on the right-hand side with a map (if you are on a PC) and you just click on "Write a Review". Please provide me with a star rating, some words to describe your experience and click "Post".  

I sincerely appreciate your help and look forward to being of service to you for years to come.

Steady sales and diminished listings characterize 2017 for the Metro Vancouver housing market

After reaching record levels in 2015 and 2016, Metro Vancouver* home sales returned to more historically normal levels in 2017. Home listings, on the other hand, came in several thousand units below typical activity.

 

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that sales of detached, attached and apartment properties reached 35,993 on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in 2017, a 9.9 per cent decrease from the 39,943 sales recorded in 2016, and a 15 per cent decrease over the 42,326 residential sales in 2015.

 

"It was a steady year for home sales across the region, led by condominium and townhome activity, and a quieter year for home listings," Jill Oudil, REBGV president said. "Metro Vancouver home sales were the third highest we've seen in the past ten years while the home listings total was the second lowest on record for the same period."
