Strong finish for mediocre year in Fraser Valley real estate

After a sluggish first half of the year, property sales in the Fraser Valley started picking up speed in the summer and finished strong in December, but not enough to surpass last year’s sales totals.

The Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) processed 15,487 sales in 2019, a 0.6 per cent decrease compared to 2018’s 15,586 sales and the lowest total sales volume for the Fraser Valley since 2013. The total dollar volume of MLS® transactions for the year was $11.2 billion, dropping from $11.8 billion sold during the year prior.

In 2019, total sales of the three main residential property types – detached, townhome and apartment – was 13,773. Of that total, 5,770 were detached, 3,888 were townhouses and 4,115 were apartments. Year‐over‐year, sales of detached and townhomes increased by 0.6 per cent compared to 2018, while apartment sales dropped by 4.2 per cent.

New Year, Clean Home: Three Things to Deep Clean for 2020

The New Year is officially underway and the holiday season has come to a close. What better excuse is there to finish any nagging cleaning tasks and start the new year with a perfectly clean home? If you are wondering where to get started, here are a few spots in your home that are likely in need of a deep clean.

The Oven:
A mainstay of the kitchen, this highly-used appliance can accumulate plenty of grime throughout the year. A mix of water, baking soda, and dish soap can work wonders on its interior.

The Fridge:
Spills, crumbs, and all matter of food scraps can easily find their way into the nooks and crannies of your fridge’s interior. If you haven’t had a chance to give your fridge a good deep cleaning in 2019, now is the time!

Windows:
The edges of your windows, particularly the tracks on sliding windows, are prime candidates for mold. Vinegar and good old-fashioned elbow grease are all it takes to get those windows looking as good as new.
