Tim Ayres Real Estate Board President

REAL ESTATE ACTIVITY CONTINUES AHEAD OF SPRING MARKET Real estate market activity in the first two months of 2014 remained slightly ahead of the same period in 2013. Total MLS® sales in February were 412, a 4.6 per cent increase over February 2013 when 394 units sold and a 20.5 per cent increase over the 342 sales reported to the Victoria Real Estate Board (VREB) in January 2014. It’s encouraging that sales activity continues to increase as we move towards a healthy spring market. Spring sales were quite strong in 2013 and I’m hoping for a similar level of activity this year. There were 227 Single Family dwellings sold in February, 42 townhouses and 107 condominiums. Our MLS® HPI Single Family index for Greater Victoria as a whole shows that benchmark prices have decreased by 1.4 percent in the last 12 months. On a regional basis, the MLS® HPI Single Family benchmark values for the CORE were virtually unchanged over the previous year. The Westshore and Peninsula saw a 1 per cent and 4.1 per cent decrease respectively when compared with February 2013. There were 3,770 active listings at the end of February. While this is an increase from 3,489 at the end of January, it is 7.4 per cent less than the 4072 listing that were available in February 2013. Inventory declined slowly for most of 2013 but our normal Spring cycle should result in inventory building in the coming months.

Creating Curb Appeal Can Help Sell Your Home

What's curb appeal? It's that certain something about your home that catches the eye of the passer-by and makes them want to take a closer look. If you're selling your home, curb appeal can quickly draw prospective buyers in for the first time. Without it, buyers may pass up on the chance to see inside and will miss what might have been the perfect home for them. Your REALTOR® can give you numerous tips and suggestions to help you make that first impression really count. Here are a few ideas. Keep your lawns neatly trimmed and edged. Trim trees and shrubbery to get rid of overhanging branches that might obscure a potentially good view of your home, or pathway leading to the front door. Turn over the soil in your flowerbeds. If there's little color in your front garden, make a splash with a display of inexpensive annuals, flower boxes and wooden tubs. Clay and plastic posts can also be filled with flowers and small shrubs and displayed in the yard or by the front entrance to give the feel of a warm welcome.



Immaculate 2 BR single level floorplan with gorgeous kitchen; open living and dining rooms; updated bath and covered parking and patio. Well tended sunny perennial gardens. 1/2 acre. Stunning indoors and out!

As you drive down this quiet country lane you will find this beautiful flat 2.22 acres with a 3 bedroom home. Covered veranda greets you as you enter. Spacious living room with wood stove. Separate dining. Large kitchen. Four piece bathroom. There are French doors leading into a sunny den which overlooks the gardens. Master bedroom is huge with glass doors out to a deck and a 3 piece ensuite. There is also an upstairs for expansion that offers French doors leading out to the upper deck which overlooks the gardens. Lots of outbuildings for cars, RV parking, garden shed. Play set for the children. Close to the schools, transportation plus lots of fun swimming in Shawnigan Lake.

Birdhouses and feeders, dried flower wreaths and hanging baskets on the front porch can give your home countryside curb appeal. Keep your porch, driveway and front yard clutter free. Remove garbage bins as soon as possible after pick-up, and avoid any build-up of junk mail. Repair or replace broken steps or walkways. You might be used to the uneven paving or rickety stairs outside your home, but they could be hazardous to visitors, as well as unsightly. Your home's roof, chimney and exterior should look sound and well-cared for. Freshly painted woodwork is often well worth the time and money invested in it.

A good spruce-up can make a big difference If painting is unnecessary, your home will still benefit from a good spruce-up. Wash down window frames and clean your windows to make them sparkle. Scrub the front door and polish the house numbers, letterbox, doorknob and knocker. Open blinds, curtains or shutters to give your home an inviting, welcoming look. These are just a sample of some of the ways you can create curb appeal. Your REALTOR® can give you many other, customized tips to make the most of your home's unique charm. In addition, your REALTOR® can offer an objective view of any repairs and improvements that might be necessary to enhance the likelihood of selling your home. Creating curb appeal may just be the feature that sets your home apart from the rest.

Moving Up

in the

Housing Market Has the prospect of moving into a bigger and better home been in your plans from the day you first bought your “starter” home? Well, now may be just the right time to make it happen. You may be surprised to learn that the cost of moving up is within your means. The equity you have already built up in your current home can often be sufficient for the down payment for your next home. And, with today’s attractive mortgage rates, carrying charges need not be much larger than what you are paying now. A REALTOR can help you calculate the carrying costs on a “move up” home.

CHANGING NEEDS The desire to move to a larger home is often the result of changing needs for you and your family. A new child is on the way and you need a nursery; the children are growing and need their own rooms and more space to play; you’re tired of scrambling for a place to park on the street and want your own driveway; you need more space to build a home office now that you are self-employed; or maybe you just need a change of scenery. There are as many reasons as there are different lifestyles. Whatever your reasons, moving up to a new home can intensify the joys of home ownership. There are both practical and emotional results of moving up to a better home. On the practical side, the equity in your home will continue to grow and the value of a bigger and better home will be ultimately greater over time. On the emotional side, the pride of ownership in a bigger house will probably be even greater than when you bought your first home.

ASK A REALTOR FOR HELP As will every major decision, the key component is thoughtful planning. Your options can be confusing at times but a REALTOR can help you make the right choices. Location, of course, will be one of the first choices you will need to make. There are almost as many individual choices on location as there are homes. If you want to move closer to the urban core you can be sure that there is somebody out there who is just as eager to move to the suburbs. If you want a house on a bigger lot to enjoy gardening, there’s someone looking for a smaller lot which requires less maintenance. With access to the Multiple Listing Service®) (MLS® ), a REALTOR can not only help you sell your present home for the best price possible, but also provide you with a customized list of homes for sale that meet your needs, wants and budget. He or she can then arrange for you to view the homes that appeal to you the most. If you are thinking of moving up to meet changes in circumstances and lifestyle, contact a REALTOR today for expert advice.

Why use your hard-earned cash to pay the landlord's mortgage when you could be using the rent money to buy a home of your own? That's a question many people ask themselves when they start thinking about moving out of the rental market to home ownership.


• As your family grows and moves on to homes of their own, you will have the option of earning extra income by renting out spare rooms or floors, if local bylaws allow. • If you are planning to borrow money from a bank or other financial institution, owning your own home is a definite plus when it comes time to negotiate. • You may not need as much money as you think to get into the home market. Qualified buyers can buy a house with as little as 5% down through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation's (CMHC)

It's a big step. For most people, taking out a mortgage is the biggest financial commitment they will ever make. But buying your own home has always made sound financial sense. Here are some facts to think over when considering home ownership as opposed to renting.

mortgage insurance scheme. You may also be able to use RRSP funds as part of your down payment. • With many kinds of investments, you have to pay a capital gains tax on profit you make. If your home is your principal residence, this tax does not apply.

• If you are 35 now and just buying your first home, you will likely be mortgage-free when you are 60 and sitting comfortably on a considerable asset. • It's highly likely your investment will appreciate considerably in 25 years. It's important, however, not to buy with the intention of making a quick fortune. Think of home buying as a sound, longterm investment. • Buying a home is a very effective way of saving regularly over many

After you have carefully considered all of the aspects of home ownership and are ready to begin your search, it's time to contact your REALTOR®. He or she has access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), a co-operative marketing system through which properties are bought and sold. Using the MLS®, your REALTOR® can prepare a customized list of properties for sale that best meet your needs, wants and budget. Your REALTOR® will also provide valuable assistance and guidance to you throughout the buying process.

Even if you never buy into another retirement or investment plan, you are effectively putting money away for the future. • Owning a home of your own means you and your family can set down roots, get to know your community and involve yourselves in it. • Discover the pride of home ownership. You can fix the place to suit your particular needs. You can also have pets in your home. Content courtesy of the Victoria Real Estate Board.

COULD YOU SELL YOUR OWN HOME? Your home has been cleaned, freshly painted and you are ready to put it on the market. Could you sell it by yourself? No doubt you could, but when you consider all aspects of the selling process, chances are you will choose to use the services of a REALTOR® -- a licensed, trained professional who has the knowledge and skills to ensure you get the best possible price and that the selling process goes as smoothly as possible. Frequently, people who attempt to sell their home without the help of a REALTOR® do so in hopes of saving the commission or fee. There is a good chance, however, that such an approach will not pay off as potential buyers will often submit lower offers in such cases. In addition, without the help of a REALTOR® and access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) it will likely take significantly longer to sell your home. The MLS® is best described as a co-operative marketing system to ensure maximum exposure of properties for sale. Fundamentally, it is a central registry of properties used by REALTORS® to match buyers with properties for sale. Before attempting to sell your own home, ask yourself the following questions: 1. Do you have sufficient knowledge to determine the price range for your home? Are you aware of changing market conditions and of recent sales of similar homes in your area? 2. Do you have the skills and resources to advertise and market your home effectively? 3. Do you know what types of financing are available? Are you informed about various financing methods? 4. Do you have a network of contacts to produce potential buyers and are you able to screen out unqualified prospects -- people who are just curious? Are you comfortable inviting strangers into your home at 9 p.m. because they saw your sign? 5. Are you available seven days a week to show your home? (Buyers will expect you to be available at their convenience, not yours). 6. Do you have good negotiating skills? Are you comfortable haggling face-to-face over the price? Will you be ready to reveal known defects of your home and are you familiar with your legal obligations in this regard? 7. Can you write a legally binding contract? Do you have offer forms readily available? Do you have a lawyer to advise you on essential terms that must be in the contract? 8. Can you close a sale? Are you familiar with the many steps required after an offer has been accepted?

Helpful HINTS on Buying a Home Buying a home is likely one of the biggest investments you will ever make.

You will need to make a number of decisions about this purchase that should be based on the best information available. The best advice you can obtain on buying a home will come from a real estate professional -- a REALTOR®. REALTORS® are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association who subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and high Standards of Business Practice. Members of the Victoria Real Estate Board are members of both the British Columbia and Canadian Real Estate Associations. The following is a list of services you can expect to receive from a REALTOR® when you buy a home: • A REALTOR® will fully explain the details of your working relationship (called “agency”) so that you are clear as to when a REALTOR® is working for you or for the seller. • A REALTOR® has access to hundreds of current listings of homes for sale because of a co-operative system called the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®). A REALTOR® can provide you with a customized list of homes that best your needs -- size, style, features, location, proximity to schools, hospital and shopping, etc. – and then make arrangements for you to view those homes that appeal the most. • A REALTOR® will help you determine how big a home you can afford. Assessing the many financial alternatives is an important consideration when buying a home. REALTORS® are familiar with the local lending market and can offer helpful advice. • A REALTOR® has no emotional ties to any type or style of home and can be objective in pointing out the merits of one home over another. • A REALTOR® will have information on zoning changes, taxes, utility costs, school and recreation services that could affect your decision to buy a home in a specific area. • A REALTOR® will assist you in negotiating the terms of your purchase. Presenting offers and handling counter offers can be a nerve-wracking process for someone who is not experienced in the art of negotiating. • Finally, a REALTOR® will advise you of the legal process required in obtaining title and taking possession of your property. The costs associated with buying a home such as insurance, mortgage registration and legal fees will be explained in detail. A REALTOR® 's knowledge and skill can help in many ways to make the experience of buying a home a pleasant and rewarding one for you and your family.
