real: The British Columbia Real Estate Foreclosure (Court Ordered Sale) Process - 02/10/11 05:30 AM
Foreclosure Homes Currently Available:  http://bchome-foreclosures.ca/
 A lot of Buyers read about the foreclosure crisis in the United States and presume that a similar problem exists here in Canada and that British Columbia foreclosure homes can be picked up for the price of a cup of coffee as is the case in some US areas today.  Although foreclosures in British Columbia can be picked up at a discount, the discount is no where near the perceived expectation that most buyers have.
Foreclosures, or as we call them here in British Columbia, Court Ordered Sales always exist whether or not the economy is good or … (3 comments)

real: Searching for Real Estate in Quebec on the Web - 11/26/10 04:01 AM


Looking for an easy to use portal to the 15,421 real estate brokers offering 70,270 MLS® properties in Québec on the internet?  The Quebec Federation of Real Estate Boards provides a great internet portal.
This web site not only provides information on homes for sale but it also gives lots of statistics and great advice for purchasing property in Québec. Real Estate conveyancing is not quite the same in Quebec as it is in the rest of Canada due to a historical anomaly.  The province is guided by the Quebec Civil Code imported from France and originated under the rule of Napolean Bonaparte.

Last week, in the afternoon, we were paid a visit by a family of Black Bears.  I had heard that there was a mother with three cubs wandering around but they had eluded my site until now.  What a cute family they make, I have seen 2 cubs many a time but three!  The runt of the litter is not even black, he is very much brown as the video shows, so much so that I would mistake him for a Brown Bear cub.
