Real Estate Market Update: Beer, Boots, Beards, Tattoos, And “Keep It Weird”

My wife and I just recently returned from a wonderful vacation in Hood River, Portland, and Manzanita, Oregon. While in Hood River and Manzanita, I kitesurfed—both were amazing spots for kiting—and then we spent two days in Portland. Throughout our stay in the beautiful state of Oregon, we encountered beer, boots, beards, tattoos, and the “keep it weird” slogans. With well over 225... [Read More]

Real Estate Market Update: Stuff Blows Up

  When rates go up, stuff blows up! Does the real estate market blow up when rates do? It really depends; it depends on supply, demand, the market trend, but mostly it depends on the strength or weakness of the drivers in the marketplace. The drivers are the return on investment, average rents, average income, availability of financing, gross domestic product, real estate values, and real... [Read More]

Real Estate Market Update: What Is In A Failed Listing?

I recently was going through some previous blog posts and came across a blog I wrote back in November of 2013 on failed listings. In the fall of 2013, the failed listings were still on the decline, which was good; the less failed listings the stronger the market is. Have a read through the 2013 blog and look at the current graph of failed listings. The market continues to show its strength despite... [Read More]

Real Estate Market Update: Jealousy Tax

I was recently at a real estate event where a CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) was sharing the impact of the new Federal and Provincial taxes on ownership of real estate, investing in real estate, and passive income from the ownership of real estate. The presenter asked if anyone liked paying taxes, so I shot up my arm and nodded yes. My reasoning? If I am paying taxes, I must be making... [Read More]

Real Estate Market Update: Investor Or Speculator

  Are you an investor or speculator? Both are professions open to all. Both require no formal education, credentials, or licenses. And both draw quick assumptions in one’s mind. An investor is seen as an individual that has done significant risk and financial due diligence before entering into a deal, while a speculator carries a stigma. The stigma of an irresponsible risk taker, an... [Read More]

Real Estate Market Update: Back to the Future

What would it be like if we were able to turn back time? To take all the knowledge we have today and go back to the future as if we were Marty McFly from the blockbuster movie Back to the Future. I can certainly think of several things I would do differently; decisions, choices, and actions that I made, especially in my younger years. When it comes to real estate, there would be properties that I... [Read More]

Real Estate Market Update: Roosters & Mother Nature

I just returned from a wonderful family vacation on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. We explored the entire island by car, foot, boat, and helicopter. What an amazing and beautiful place!

Real Estate Market Update: Natural Disaster – Fire Sale

  Fire sales, blowout sales, and door crashers are a few sales slogans that marketers use to get the attention of the consumer. However, these terms have been prevalent in the world of real estate over the last number of months too. Not for the hot real estate market we read and hear about, but rather because of the devastation of properties and homes. The fires in the wine regions of Napa... [Read More]
