Happy New Year and welcome to 2024!

I trust that you have enjoyed a refreshing break. Rest plays a necessary role in the process of personal growth, and although I find it difficult to sit still, I firmly believe that taking a break creates the opportunity for self-reflection. To move forward with perspective, I intentionally pause and stay silent for a moment. I appreciate that these past few weeks have offered me the chance to do so and I hope you have shared the same opportunity.

This month I am working with clients to complete their annual real estate reviews. Similar to how a financial advisor might offer a peek into your RRSP investments or other holding accounts, I conduct these reviews for my clients as part of my professional services.

A real estate review is a comprehensive analysis of your property value, based on various factors such as tax records, land use, nearby amenities, and neighbourhood-specific market trends. Unlike an appraisal, it gives you a general overview of your real estate portfolio and is essential for several purposes, such as refinancing your mortgage, determining a realistic range of value in anticipation of selling, appealing a BC Assessment valuation, or renewing your property insurance. One risk of not having an updated range of value for your home is that you may find yourself underinsured and vulnerable to potential losses.

To get an idea of what this report looks like, click the button below. If you are curious to see the details and range of value for your own property, please reach out and I would be happy to deliver and go through the report with you in person, or alternatively, I can send you the electronic version.

In anticipation of a busy spring for buyers and sellers, I have received a lot of phone calls. I would like to remind you that you are my people, and I am never too busy for you. If you have questions about the market or your home, please reach out. I am here for you.

I wish everyone a prosperous year ahead and I look forward to connecting soon.
