Saskatoon has quickly become a very eco-friendly city over the last few years, with initiatives ranging from curbside recycling to local farmers markets and the opening of many trendy second-hand clothing stores. Bicycling Recently, the city and local businesses have taken on the initiative to provide a bicycle valet service at almost every summer event. This further encourages residents to leave their cars at home and use their bike to get around.  The city of Saskatoon has also created a number of guides which rank the streets of the city for cycling as well as providing information about the bike paths around the city, which are ever growing in number. It's not uncommon to see someone biking through the snow in -30C weather. Recycling Saskatoon has just begun to roll out a curbside "...

As lending rules have tightened up in Canada over the last year, we've seen an increase in the number of days on market for lower, entry level homes. I attest this to the fact that younger people are continuing to rent instead of doing everything in their power to save up and purchase their first home. There are a number of reasons that owning a house is far superior to renting. 1. You are building equity - if you could have a nicer home for the same price you are renting for PLUS be able to sell that asset for more than what you paid for it in the future, would you? 2. Ability to re-invest in your home. Upgrades to your kitchen, basement, bathrooms, yard, flooring, etc. will all bring a return to you in the future. 3. Pride - let's be honest, it feels a lot nicer to be able to say you ...

When looking to purchase commercial real estate, a large number of the available properties will never hit your local MLS. Often times, properties will be shopped around through a network of known buyers before they are made available to the public. In order to be one of the known buyers or prospective buyers who is contacted when the potential selling of the property becomes available, it is vital that you remain in constant contact with your Realtor as well as any other potential points of contact for the transaction.  If a property has been listed on the MLS, it is likely that it has already been passed over by a large number of commercial real estate buyers in your city. Be sure to have a thorough inspection done on the property and if it is an existing business make sure to complet...

It's one of the biggest questions facing first time homebuyers and empty nesters. Is a house or a condo the right choice for them? House 1. Your own yard to enjoy with privacy from your neighbours. 2. Usually a larger living space. 3. You own the land which retains value. 4. No condo fees - but usually higher taxes as well as the costs of utilities which are often covered with your condo fees. 5. Freedom to do as you wish with your property and home - you are not governed by bylaws of a condo association. Condo 1. Very little maintenance required - no shoveling of sidewalks, mowing lawns, weeding, cleaning eavestroughs.  2. The exterior of your building including your windows are the responsiblity of the condo association. 3. Often times shared amenities like a games room, swimming pool...

House Hunters Online Search Edition: Last week I met with some new buyers for the very first time. It was a young family and they were preparing to buy their first home. They were so excited because they found many homes listed online in the Town of Queen Creek that were well within their price range. They did all of the right things, got their pre-approval from a lender, had discussions with their landlord about moving and contacted a local, full-time Realtor. When I sat down with them, we discussed their price range and wish list for their dream home. Then, I plugged in all of the criteria for their desired home into my MLS search, and there were ZERO homes that matched our search. We kept adjusting the criteria like price and square footage in hopes that there might be a few homes f...

Transform Your Home from Winter to Summer with These Easy Tips As the warm, hazy days of summer come slowly into view, we tend to start to think of how we can transform our winter houses into summer paradises. It’s not that difficult to ease from a warm, winter home into a breezy summer one if you follow these tips. Remove Winter Accessories During the winter months we tend to have accessories to keep us warm, like heavy blankets and draperies, fire logs, heaters and anything that keeps us warm and cozy. Once the summer hits however, it generates its own heat, so remove any accessory that isn’t needed. For example, put away those thick blankets, space heaters and dark drapes; instead put up bright sheer draperies and bring in fresh flowers to brighten and freshen the room. Bring Out the...

For the third consecutive year, Saskatoon is the fastest growing city of any census metropolitan area in Canada, according to StatsCan. Saskatoon grew at a rate of 40.4 per thousand, the first time a city has grown at that rate in over 15 years. The population as of July 1, 2012 was 284,000, an increase of 11,200 from July 1 of 2011. Saskatoon is also the youngest city in Canada, according to StatsCan. The median age of residents of the city is 34.9, well below the national average of 40. There's no question that Saskatoon is the place to be in Canada and an economic hub of the prairies.

A newly formed company by the name of Brightenview Development International has acquired a quarter section of land near Dundurn, Saskatchewan, twenty minutes outside of Saskatoon. They are proposing to build a first of its kind for North America wholesale mall, which would make it the largest mall in North America and one of the top 10 largest malls in the world. According to the company, the 6.4 million square foot complex would house 350 stores and create 1000 new jobs. The concept of the mall is that Chinese companies will have displays for regular customers to shop at as well as for major corporations to do wholesale buying. It is a concept that has shown to be successful in China but would be the first of its kind in North America. Many people are skeptical as to why they would ch...
