    New Rules and Procedures in BC Real Estate – What Do They Mean For YOU?

    It’s no secret over the last 20 years BC has experienced numerous periods of excessive real estate activity.
    At some point Government intervention was inevitable and that some point is 2023. 
    In this episode we look at some of the new rules and procedures and explain what they mean to you as a buyer or seller.
    There’s the new BC Homebuyer’s Rescission Period (the so called “Cooling Off” period). How does that work and does the timeline run concurrently with other subjects on a contract?
    There are also several new disclosure requirements to mitigate “Bully Offers.”
    And there’s the Ban on Foreign Homebuyers. What does it mean and how might it impact the Vancouver real estate market in 2023?
    We also talk about steps being taken to crack down on money laundering.

    Understanding All the Tools Realtors Have to Help You

    Understanding All the Tools Realtors Have to Help You

    When you call a plumber, they show up at your home and open their tool box to vast array of specialized instruments, utensils and machines and it’s then that you realize… there’s no way you could have fixed this yourself. You don’t have those tools.
    It’s the same with realtors. Not only to do they have the tools but they know how to use the Benchmark Price, the Sales to Active Listing Ratio, and they know what Days on the Market really means when it comes to selling or buying your home. 
    In this episode, Alberta Rose walks us through the various terms used in Real Estate, what they mean, and how they can help you.
