Well I am not sure what everyone else is thinking..... but good grief winter must be almost over? So I realize I live in an area that seems to be subject to a bit more snow than town (behind BX falls for all the people wondering) but honestly I have used my plow more in November than all last winter I am pretty sure...  I am not complaining well, not fully... we do like winter and the snow and how pretty it looks but this must mean that spring will be here at the end of January which is super exciting! I rest easy believing in this thought...  

Wow Christmas is really sneaking up this year! Less than a month away and though I do feel not as many are surprising a spouse with a new mortgage payment this year.   It is interesting to see that our market is still showing signs of life more so than a month ago. There have been a few days in the last couple weeks that sold homes outpaced new listings on a particular day which means people are still looking..... and still looking means they are serious! If you are looking for a new home in this weather there must be a reason. That brings me to sellers.... Yes, the buyers in the winter are always ready to buy or they wouldn't be out. If selling is on your mind for spring (at the end of January) then it may be in your best interest to get that sale sign up! You will most certainly have much less competition the earlier you decide this and you may also see a higher price point. 

Whatever your Real Estate needs, Thrive Okanagan is always ready to help you. With a TEAM of 5 fully licensed agents we are ready to make the buying or selling or both seamless and easy... 

Just a fun tidbit of information as well.... Did you know that you can take your current interest rate with you! Yes it's called porting your mortgage. If you need to borrow a bit extra because you are upgrading... they will blend the new rate on the additional funds. That means that you can move, have a good rate and have some good choices for homes! 

Are you dreaming of a new home... call us and we can explain that further. 

We look forward to hearing from you anytime.....  direct at 250-503-3487 or email us at
