Fab Westshore Home


(excerpt from client testimonial)... Recently widowed I had three real estate appraisals done by highly reputable real estate companies on my property. I chose Suzy and sold for $57,000 more than the other two appraisals suggested. I am confident that the extra $57,000 in my pocket is completely due to Suzy’s expertise; her approach to real estate is different and so are her results. H.A. Timmer Victoria

February 2012 Victoria’s Real Estate Market Reflects Consumer Confidence The story continues from last month when the Victoria Real Estate Board reported a relatively stable market compared to the same period in 2011, and REALTORS® report they are optimistic that new provincial HST transition rules and a New Home First-time Buyers Bonus will stimulate sales of new properties. Reporting increased showings, our Members feel the HST transition rules, increased HST rebates and New Home First-time Buyers Bonus are stimulating traffic for both new houses and condos. Consumer confidence is increasing as a result of our stable economy and incredibly low mortgage rates. Not only are prices remaining stable, there are enough listings to allow buyers to perform their due diligence without making rash decisions. We encourage buyers to work with REALTORS® to ensure they are educated about current market conditions and recently announced provincial incentives.

AVERAGE PRICES February 2012

With 3,977 active listings at the end of February, increased supply levels and sales are expected in keeping with the normal historical trend of spring activity. February’s sale volume was virtually identical to that of February 2011, but the average price for single family homes softened by 5% over February 2011. The average sales price for a single family home in Greater Victoria was $579,985, with a six-month average of $594,027, showing a corresponding decrease of 4.7% over February 2011. MLS ® sales last month included 265 single family homes, 136 condominiums, 65 townhomes and 16 manufactured homes, totalling 482 residences.

Simply stated, Royal Lepage believes that by improving the lives of people in the communities where we live and work, we will improve our own lives as well.

Barbara Walker

Royal Lepage has always taken an active role in the communities we serve. In a national survey, we asked our Realtors and customers to help identify a national cause that had a true meaning for us. Four of the six top causes identified related specifically to shelters. It only makes sense, really, since we’re in the business of shelter and know that shelter comes in many forms.

Building on an 86 year tradition of charitable work and donations, Royal Lepage formed the Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation in 1998. This national foundation is dedicated to supporting shelters for people in need, right across Canada. The Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation raises funds, works to increase public awarement of the issues creating the need for shelters for abused women and assists in the education of violence prevention. The Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation operates on both a local and a national level. Locally, our offices partner with an area shelter to raise awareness and funds and all money raised stays in that community. On a national level, our program raises funds for the Canadian Women’s Foundation, supporting violence-prevention programs across Canada. In the first three years of operation, the Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation raised over $1.4 million. Our efforts help more than 30,000 women and children annually in over 120 shelters in communities across Canada. Thank you for taking the time to read this; now, we invite you to take a moment to consider Coast Capital Realty INDEPENDENTLY OWNED AND OPERATED contributing to this very worthy cause.

CHATTELS AND FIXTURES: PUT IT IN WRITING BEFORE YOU SELL Other items to consider are lawn ornaments, smoke alarms, and built-in vacuum cleaners. These types of items are generally left with the home, but some people still like to take things with them. If you tend to be one of these people, clearly state in writing what WILL NOT be included in the sale. Most buyers would assume that these types of fixtures will be included in the sale unless you specify the contrary in the listing. It is absolutely necessary that you set out these stipulations in the contract of purchase and sale.

you are thinking of selling your home, have you Ithefgiven much thought to what you plan to leave with home and what you would like to take with you, such as the washer and dryer, the fridge and stove, or even that heirloom chandelier in the dining room? While these may not seem like important concerns right now, your failure to address them in your listing and the contract of purchase and sale could lead to a major misunderstanding with a potential buyer. The last thing you would want is the loss of a sale of your home due to a dispute or misunderstanding over a relatively minor item. A REALTOR will guide you through the listing process and will ask you what you want to include in the sale. It is a good idea, however, to make up a list before meeting with your REALTOR to ensure you do not forget something.

CHATTELS ARE NORMALLY REMOVED When chattels are included in the agreement, they must be listed in the contract of purchase and sale. It is fairly common practice for sellers to include items, which would normally be considered as chattels, such as appliances and window coverings, in the selling price.

IF IN DOUBT? If there is any doubt about a particular item, your REALTOR will include it in the list of items to be included or excluded from the purchase price. That way, if there is any question, the situation has already been addressed.

FIXTURES NORMALLY STAY A REALTOR will explain that fixtures are permanent improvements to a property which normally stay with the property as part of the sale. For example, if you have upgraded your wiring or heating system, these are considered to be permanent fixtures. Keep in mind, however, that the law is not always crystal clear about what constitutes a fixture. There are circumstances where you may plan to remove something that might ordinarily be considered a fixture â&#x20AC;&#x201D; like your chandelier.

If you have any concerns, talk to your REALTOR. As a trained professional, he or she will be able to guide you smoothly through the selling process and answer any questions you may have.

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. 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. • 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 years. 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.


• 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) 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. 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.
