It's Amazing what a little Sunshine will do!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker First Trail Real Estate Ltd

Finally, we have sunshine in the West Kootenay's!  We've had a a very long, not necessarily harsh, but definately long winter.  The kind where you get teased with a day or two of gorgeous, get out there and do something outside sunshine, then wake up to 4 inches of fresh fallen snow.  It's been tough, but we have persevered and even in Fruitvale, where I live on the mountainside, we can see grass and the crocuses and daffodils are poking their heads through!

 Suddenly folks are thinking about buying and selling.  I've had calls from Trail, Fruitvale and Montrose, asking about the market.  Do I think now is a good time to list?  Is that house I looked at in October still available?  Yes, it's a good time to list!  I have just listed a terrific family home in Trail, BC, at 2495 Colin Crescent.  The exterior is waiting for you to put your own stamp on it and the time is right to get the  landscaping just to your desire.  Call me 250.231.7575 on this listing, or view at, K202025. 

There is an amazing upswing in the local market, so if you have quesitons about our West Kootenay Real Estate, please feel free to contact me, I'd love to work with you!

I think a lack of sunshine is why we see so many Canadians buying winter vacation homes in Arizona.

Oh how I love sunshine and Carolina blue skies and of course I'd love it to be in the low to mid 70's as well!!  Thank heavens we all have different likes and dislikes so all parts of a country get settled!
