I build my business through referrals. So, I work hard to earn those recommendations by providing excellent client service and doing everything else I can to be referral worthy.In fact, that’s...

I hope 2021 has been off to a great start for you! If you have any big plans for the year, you might be interested in this famous quote by Benjamin Franklin, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”I would add, “Plan early.” We know that the sooner you get started, the more likely you are to ultimately succeed. Say, for example, you’re thinking of selling your home this year. Even if you don’t expect to list until the summer or fall, there are numerous advantages to starting to plan now. Wouldn’t it be helpful to know how...

Real Estate Update – November 2020

by Jeff Belisowski with 0 Comments in November 7, 2020

Happy autumn. Let’s hope the coming season treats us all well! Speaking of seasons, you may have noticed that the real estate market seems to have seasons. Traditionally, it’s slower in some months and busier in others. In fact, that might lead you to try to “time” the market and sell when it’s hot. But, be careful. Like the weather, the real estate market can be unpredictable. Yes, it may be active next spring – but, then again, it could be slow. There’s no way to know for sure. In fact, the best criteria for deciding whether or not to...

Your Real Estate Update – October 2020

I hope you’re enjoying the fall season! Have you ever noticed that, when it comes to real estate, there’s news, and then there’s news you can actually use? For example, most major newspapers, both print and online, publish updates on the real estate market — but only nationally and regionally. They don’t tell you what’s going on in your specific neighbourhood because, by necessity, they can only cover a broad area. But news that’s broad and general has limited value to you. The real estate information that’s most useful, especially if you’re thinking of selling, is local. It’s specific to...

Have you seen one of those TV shows where someone brings in an item, usually an antique, and an expert appraises its value? It’s fun to watch the reaction when the expert reveals what the item is worth. While those shows are entertaining, they also teach us an important lesson. If you have an asset or investment, you should always know and keep track of its current market value. Your home is an investment, maybe your most important one. So, it’s a smart idea to periodically calculate what it would likely sell for on today’s market. I recommend you determine...
