July 3 is the deadline for paying property taxes, and, like every other homeowner, you've probably wondered if your tax assessment reflects the true value of your home.
In the first weekend of June, there were 700 open houses on Vancouver's West Side and 500 on the East Side. Rich pickings for buyers and lookie-loos. From sellers, the cry goes out: "Well what day CAN the staging people get here, then?"
The simple act of cleaning and decluttering before putting your home on the market can add thousands to your selling price, according to the HomeGain 2012 National Home Improvement Survey. Besides showing your home as a more spacious, blank canvas for the next homeowners, a big purge means that when it's time to move, it'll be easier and cost you less.
What will Vancouver be like in 40 years? And what can we do now to make sure it’s a place we’ll still love?
Logic tells sellers to list their properties, and that's just what they're doing-to the point that the MLS® is warning realtors that new listings could take longer to process because of high volume.
