Do you live in the Cowichan Valley, Duncan, Chemainus, Ladysmith or in the greater Nanaimo area? Thinking about buying or selling property now? Or maybe in the spring?


While the property market usually drops in the late fall and winter there is still a lot of activity going on this year. I have more than 30 buyers actively looking for property and 19 of those were in contact in the past week. 308 residential properties sold in the Nanaimo through Duncan area in the past 30 days and there have been 434 new listings. The majority of sales are in the $250,000 to $400,000 range.

If you have a home in that range, in reasonable condition and you price well against comparable properties, you will likely sell your home fairly quickly. Price for value is critical. The increase in price of $339,000 from $319,000 can mean that you are missing more than 100 potentially qualified buyers.

If you want to know more about the value of your home in the present market you can request a price evaluation. If your home has been on the market in the past 10 years then all I need is the address and a note of any changes you have made.

I will prepare an initial Comparative Market Analysis and then contact you to arrange a time that will be convenient to view your property. If you are still interested we can discuss a plan for putting your home or property on the market. No BS, no pressure.
