Slower than normal market still attracting buyers in the Fraser Valley


The Fraser Valley real estate market experienced its second slowest April in ten years and yet sales of certain property types and price ranges remain solid.

The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,383 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in April, a 13.3 per cent increase compared to sales in March 2019, and a 19 per cent decrease compared to the 1,708 sales in April of last year. Of the 1,383 total sales of residential and commercial combined, 489 were residential detached homes, 379 were townhouses, and 374 were apartments.

Darin Germyn, President of the Board, said of the market: “Consumers may not have the purchasing power that they did prior to January 2018, but the desire for home ownership is still there and we’re seeing that reflected in our MLS® data.

Decluttering 101: Three Items to Toss


Let’s face it, decluttering a household can be an intimidating job. All those little piles of clothing, doohickies, and junk that has been neglected due to your busy schedule can leave you wondering where to start! If you are finding yourself overwhelmed by your cluttered home, tossing these three items is the perfect way to ease yourself into the decluttering process.

Remove the Receipts

When you have purchased a piece of clothing or electronic device that starts to fall apart after a week, there are few better feelings than knowing you’ve kept the receipt. However, what happens to all those receipts that never end up being used? Well, they sit on your coffee table, or in your junk drawer, or on your kitchen counter—forever. Chances are, most of the receipts that are around your home are probably long expired and hold no further use. Give these receipts a toss for an easy decluttering win.

Clothes You Will Never Wear Again

Everyone has at least a few clothing items buried deep in their closet that haven’t been worn in years. Take a moment to go through your wardrobe and give those old items a toss. Whether
they no longer fit, are out of style, or are dotted with holes—they aren’t doing you any good taking up precious closet space!

Old Newspapers and Magazines

You swear you were going to get around to reading the latest issue of your favorite magazine, and yet, as weeks turn to months, that magazine sits on your counter joined by other magazines still on your to-read list. If a magazine or newspaper has been sitting for a few months, it is probably worth parting ways. You can always catch up on the next issue!
