Happy New Year Everyone!
In recognition of the end of 2014, and the beginning of 2015, the LiveKitsilano Team wanted to send all of our clients a big thank you for making this year so wonderful. We had a lot of listings in Kitsilano and we sold some of our clients into some pretty marvelous properties, some of which will be marvelous once the renovations are finished. Kitsilano is one of the most unique areas of Vancouver, and the types of properties you can find are often interesting thanks to unique floor plans in older buildings and the potential for a great view.
I was playing around with Google Maps and discovered how to create maps, so I decided to create a map with a selection of our Team’s sales. Notice the cluster of properties in Arbutus Walk, with a few sales in each neighbourhood in Kitsilano. Have some questions? Ask! Want to inquire about the LiveKitsilano Team selling your home? Inquire or fill out our Kitsilano Home Value Form to get started.
In the spirit of making resolutions, we’re going to continue to blog about good listings, Kitsilano News, everything you need to know about condos, the renovation process and some interesting things about detached houses in Kitsilano. Let us know if you have a specific question – if you’re wondering it, someone else is too – and we’re always happy to help. Our goal is to help you (yes, YOU!) reach your real estate goals in 2015, which could be buying your first home, moving into a new home through a buy and sale or taking on that big renovation to create your ideal home. We have the tools, the experience and the network to ensure that you’re supported, knowledgeable and happy throughout the real estate process.
We’ve added our Kitsilano Home Buyer’s Guide and Home Seller’s Guide to give you a little bit of information about the process, but we like having a good relationship with clients and potential clients, so give us a call to sit down and chat about these things. It’s always easier in person. Otherwise, sign up for one of our two, very useful, online tools!
Automatic MLS Search
The first is our Automatic MLS Search, an easy way for you to stay on top of the market as this service will email you every property that matches what you’re looking for – 2 bedrooms under $600k? a detached house built in the last 5 years? a condo that allows rentals without restriction? You be emailed an ongoing list of all the properties that hit the market that make sense for you, along with all their information and photos so you no longer have to search the web to find them. For more information and a screenshot: Automatic MLS Search.
The second tool is our Market Snapshots, a good way for potential Sellers to get a sense of their potential valuation. These listings are emailed to you in a handy map so you can see not only what your neighbour’s house sold for, but also what others in the neighbourhood are being listed and sold for, and how long they were on the market.
