Weekend Report


This week, on the hunt for 1 or 2 bedroom apartments in a central hip or soon to be neighborhood, rental friendly so my Buyer can hang on to it for a long time. 

315 711 E 6TH AVE Bright spacious with a cool ‘mid century’ vibe.  Only 650 square feet but the rooms all seem super big. 1 bedroom. I like ‘The Picasso; fab location walking distance to shops on Broadway, Emily Carr, Vcc,  and I’ve seen quite a few suites here I like including this one. Last a year 2 bedroom, with great city views was selling for $275,000. This year, this one bedroom $298,000

 238 E 10TH AV  at 500 square feet, this was the smallest place we saw this week, but definitely the most creative and  excellent use of space. Studio 10 is a live/work warehouse conversion  located in the heart of trendy SoMa. Tiny and a bit awkward but I could love living here.

10th light c

High ceilings, French doors, unique kitchen design and lots of light in this funky pad. Insuite laundry, they call it a 1 bedroom, but really almost a bachelor. $288,000

Also on the hunt this week for a townhouse in North Burnaby and a 4 bedroom house in North Vancouver and a character home off the Drive.

This one WAS my favorite of the North Van houses for this buyer.  It sold though. To fast for us.

6 Tips to Sell Your Home Faster and For More Money


Planning to list your home for sale? Here are 6 tips to help sell your home faster and for more money!

welcome mat b

  1. Boost the curb appeal and weed that garden. First impressions matter so put away the tools and toys, add some colorful flowers and a ‘Welcome’ mat

  2. Start packing. Sell or store excess furniture, de-clutter counter and table tops, shelves and closets

  3. Put away all your personal photographs so buyers can envision themselves living there

    bed g

  4. Light and bright sells, so put on a fresh coat of white paint

  5. Staging is essential. After you’ve cleaned, de-cluttered and de-personalized add colorful artwork, decor and silk flowers to help buyers fall in love with your home

  6. Well lit professional photographs will always bring more buyers to see your home
