real estate

review Superior quality 1 and 2 bedroom homes AND a 1.9% mortgage* We are very happy homeowners. Home ownership wasn’t something we’d considered until Cornerstone came along. One look at the showhome (nice) and a conversation with their mortgage-savvy sales team, and we were sold. We walked in on a whim, thinking, “There’s no way we can afford this”, and walked out on top of the world. Our folks agree — Cornerstone is a smart decision. Marcon has a great reputation; they’ve been around as long as we’ve been alive. And the best part is we can still afford to go on vacation, thanks to our low monthly payment.

Home values continue to rise in Canada. Royal LePage House Price Survey reports first quarter gains. The average price of a home in Canada increased between 3.5 and 4.3 per cent in the first quarter of 2011, according to a Royal LePage House Price Survey released last month. “The rate at which Canadian homes are appreciating may well have peaked for the next year or so,” says Phil Soper, president and chief executive of Royal LePage Real Estate Services. “We expect house prices will continue to creep up, but most of the excess demand created by the initial drop in house rates has been satisified.” Soper expects the number of house listings to rise, and says that low single-digit percentages are likely to continue for the rest of the year.

In the first quarter of 2011, Vancouver, Montreal and Halifax experienced significant price gains compared to the same period in 2010, which Royal LePage contributes to favourable regional demographic shifts and a healthy local economy. “Canada’s real estate market has maintained momentum coming out of 2010, indicating that the post-recession recovery is continuing,” says Soper. He states that while the slow pace of improving employment levels has tempered the housing market somewhat, Vancouver is an exception. “Foreign buyers, particularly from China, are driving demand in select mid-to-high priced markets, and driving up the regional average reported home prices at a surprising pace,” he says.

Outlook reaches out to young families by Colin Oswin

Potential homebuyers have a chance to get in on the ground floor of a burgeoning community at Royale Properties’ Outlook development. Located in Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood, Outlook is nestled in the middle of parks, pubs and big-box shopping – and Outlook sales manager Tucker McClean says even more amenities are on the way. “Everything is within walking distance,” he says. “It’s a really nice little nook here.” In addition to Willoughby’s alreadyexisting attractions, McClean says young families will appreciate the community park and elementary

school going up right next door to Outlook. “You can basically watch your children walk to school from your balcony,” he says.

The school is scheduled to be open for business by fall 2012. Inside, homeowners will find tall, nine-foot ceilings on the main floor. Moving upstairs, the master and secondary bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings in select homes (Outlook has six different home layouts, ranging from 1,227 to 1,785 sq. feet), as well as loop-pile carpeting. Living, dining and family rooms feature wide-plank teak or wenge laminate floors, and electric fireplaces are available in certain home styles.

Home buyers can choose from two different designer colour schemes – magnolia or chestnut. In the kitchen, buyers will find designer-selected granite countertops, double-basin sinks and flat panel cabinets in Tatami Kuiimu or Studio Teak. A full suite of designer stainless steel appliances comes standard, with a 18.7 cubic foot fridge, 30-inch self-clean range, a built-in microwave above the continued on page 3

‘A NICE LITTLE NOOK HERE’

range and a five-level dishwasher. Bathrooms feature walk-in showers, porcelain tile backsplashes, 12 by 24-inch tile floors, deep soaker tubs and even an oversized rain shower head. “It’s little touches like that that go above and beyond,” McClean says. All Outlook homes also have a powder room to add that extra bit of flexibility for families where mirror time is at a premium. “Just to have a small powder room makes it easier and more convenient,” McClean says. And out back, home buyers will find big, spacious decks – perfect for entertaining guests in the summertime. “For me, these are some of the largest decks I’ve seen in a townhome,” McClean says. Outlook will have 102 homes when the development is complete. It’s already halfway done, with Phase 3 nearly sold out and Phase 4 coming soon. Nearly 20 units are occupied. Outlook homes start at $304,900. For more information, visit www.outlookliving. com or call 604-888-8778.
