October brings slight bump to sales for Fraser Valley


The Fraser Valley housing market saw slight increases in both total transactions and overall inventory this month after sales hit their lowest point for the year in September.

The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,155 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in October, a decrease of 35.8 per cent compared to the 1,779 sales in October of last year, and a 11.6 per cent increase compared to sales in September 2018.

Of the 1,155 sales, 438 were residential detached homes, 306 were townhouses, and 292 were apartments.

“While slight, this is the first time since May that sales here have been on the upswing.” said John Barbisan, President of the Board. “We’re beneath typical activity levels for this time of year but it’s good to see that buyers and sellers are still finding success this season.”

Make The Most Of November—Without Leaving Your Home


November is finally upon us and with each passing week, the days are getting both shorter and colder. There has never been a better time to skip the outdoors and stay within the cozy confines of your home. With these helpful ideas, you can make the most of your November from the comfort of your own home!

Take Back Your Space

It can start slowly, but clutter can steadily take over your home if you aren’t careful! First, a few knick-knacks lying about from a trip last summer. Then, a couple of mementos that you never had the heart to throw away. Perhaps an emptied pizza box that didn’t quite make its way into the recycling bin. Whatever the case might be, November is a great chance to go through your home and clear out any unnecessary clutter—take back your living space!

Find A New Hobby

Even with the days getting shorter, you can still find plenty of time to start a new indoor hobby! Whether it’s painting, yoga, or playing an instrument—November is a great month to try something new. Without the allure of sunny days, it’s far easier to get invested in a new hobby. If you find one you really enjoy, it might come in handy when you need a break from the holiday stress of December!

Break Out The Holiday Decorations

If department stores can fill the aisles with holiday decorations over a month in advance, why can’t you? Get a jump-start on the holiday excitement by bringing out your holiday decorations towards the end of November. While others may struggle to find the time for decorating between shopping and arranging family dinners, you can relax and bask in the holiday cheer of your tastefully decorated interior.
