10 +1 Signs That It "Might" Be Time To Sell Your Home In following of a Famous late night TV Entertainer, who shall remain unnamed, we thought to offer our top ten reasons that is might be time to make a Move. 1.

The swing set in the backyard has sprouted roots. 4. The plumber's phone is on your speed dial, and.......Your phone number (2 comments)

selling: Victoria BC, Land of Delayed Re-actions - 07/26/10 04:11 PM
Recently our Victoria Real Estate Market is seeing a lot of mixed messages. The economy is good or is it? housing starts are up, or are they? Sales Price averages are steady or are they? This is a bad time to move or is it? These are some hotly debated topics amongst Realtors and their clients and our peers. Let's look at the last one first. Is this a good or bad time to move......? It really depends, but I would say that if you are currently a local property owner that is thinking about moving to a similar type of (2 comments)

•13. Not working with an True Full Time Professional Realtor Some people still think that all realtors do is sticking a sign in the yard and wait for buyers to show up. Trust me over the past 25 years; we have seen some good agents, mostly average agents, and only a hand full of truly Pfanntastic Agents. The Right Realtor team in the right situation will not only create sales, they will keep sales together where others would have thrown in the towel and given up. Good markets or bad, there are always challenges in every sale, the best agents (10 comments)
We hope to answer questions received from clients, The Most frequently asked Real Estate question in Victoria BC is; When is the best time to sell my property in or around Victoria BC? Most Realtors will say, "NOW" is the best time, and they will say this in any market, any time of the year. In reality the right time to sell is often dependent on the timing and schedule of the seller, and as such external issues may trump the typical market driven indicators. External issues like Jobs, careers, health financial, birth, death, economy are not things we can (0 comments)
