What do I do if my Realtor is not living up to their promises?
Concerned Homeowner

All too often we get asked this question from concerned homeowners who genuinely want to sell their home. The Real Estate Board has spent a great deal of time, money and effort in preparing a listing agreement designed to offer protection for the general public and the Realtor. Unfortunately, there is no provision under Section 14 of the Listing Agreement for the homeowner to cancel the agreement prior to expiration, should the Realtor not live up to the promises made in their original listing presentation. Before signing a listing agreement, you should always pay special attention to the duration of the agreement and discuss openly with your Realtor what the consequences are if they do not live up to their pledges and promises. If they are not prepared to offer you some kind of guarantee in WRITING–Move On!

Thanks for taking the time to visit our blog and see you real soon–I Guarantee it!

Saturday Tour of Homes

Introducing the Comox Valley to Speed Dating for Home Seekers! Tracy and John are excited to introduce a new and innovative way to showcase 8 homes in a single afternoon without pressure or hassle. The SATURDAY TOUR OF HOMES is a great way to get an overview of what homes and features are available in your price range PLUS receive your FREE HOME BUYERS PACKAGE. Here’s how it works…on selected Saturdays we will conduct a tour of up to 8 homes between 2 and 4 PM – Each home will be open for 10 minutes. You can meet us at ANY of the homes or join us for the whole tour. Open times will be adhered to, so please be prompt for the ones you want to preview. If you see a home on tour that you are interested in, a second, private showing can easily be scheduled for after the tour. See you Saturday!

Spring market is basically keeping pace with last year. It is a well balanced market with well priced listings selling fairly quickly, but if anything is a little over priced it is sitting out there for a while. The higher end of the market i.e over $500K is still slow and there are some fabulous buying opportunities. We have a gorgeous home listed on the golf course at Crown Isle – it is a 9 year old rancher immaculate throughout with hardwood floors, stainless (new) appliances, recent granite tops and a gorgeous yard. This one started last year at $639K and is now $549K representing the best value for money presently in Crown Isle and the lowest price rancher on the actual golf course.

Our office continues to lead the pack locally in market share sitting at about 48% and in fact this weeks tour of new listings from our office was the largest tour so far this year and included 28 homes! We were still touring homes at 1.30pm on Tuesday!

I have been working with some delightful people of late and I was delighted to help a couple purchase a fabulous home on Royal Vista Way earlier this month. The home was a gorgeous large rancher with basement on the golf course and we are looking forward to them moving here in May of this year. We have also just got an accepted offer on a gorgeous town home also in Crown Isle for a delightful lady moving up from Victoria, so all being well she will be moving in in July this year and will be able to enjoy our summer on the huge deck overlooking the golf course.

We are presently working on some fabulous new listings of some top quality and unique homes and are looking forward to introducing these homes to the market so check back with us and we will keep you posted! We also have several “wanted” ads out there right now so if you are thinking of making a move and would like an informal chat – give us a call!
