3925 ROCK CITY RD. $344,900

IS NOW A GOOD TIME TO BUY A HOME? If you’re tired of renting and have always wanted a home you could call your own, but thought the opportunity was just beyond your reach because of economic factors, here are some things to consider.

1000 OLD VICTORIA RD. $358,000

The silver-lining in the lacklustre economic outlook is that the normalization of both short-term and long-term interest rates will be deferred. BC households with variable rate mortgages will therefore be facing lower payments than we would have originally predicted at the beginning of the year.

5314 BAYSHORE DR. $355,000

The one year ¿xed mortgage rate is forecasted to ¿nish 2010 at around 3.20% and to reach 4.05% by the end of 2011. The ¿ve year ¿xed mortgage rate is forecasted to end the year at 5.35% and to reach 6.10% by the end of 2011.

680 TOWNSITE RD. $259,000

Large 3 yr. old home with legal 2 bdrm suite. Also includes separate office with its own washroom & entrance. Plenty of extras. 2 meters, 2 laundry rooms, 2 hot water tanks.

5501 NOYE RD. $324,900

The BCREA mortgage rate forecast is for a continuation of the current low-rate environment into early 2011. At that time prompted by a new round of tightening by the Bank of Canada and (hopefully) brighter economic prospects, interest rates will renew their ascendency to historical norms but at a measured pace.

4 bedroom home in University District with inlaw suite potential.

Great 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in Departure Bay.

In a recent report put out by the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) it was suggested that perhaps Home Buyer’s were in the driver’s seat. Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist said, “A relatively large number of homes for sale have created the most favourable supply conditions for home buyers in more than a year.”

Moreover, new homebuyers or homeowners set to renew their mortgages will be offered a second chance at securing rates at levels last seen at the depths of the ¿nancial crisis.

528 4TH STREET $279,900

3 bedroom rancher, private setting, close to Brannen Lake

Great investment property with inlaw suite potential.
