Welcome to your December 2014 Update!

From Tina & Tania...

Merry Christmas!!  I'm not sure what it is about this year (maybe the fact that 10 people are getting virtually the same gift??) but I am ON TOP of Christmas this year!  Everything is bought, wrapped and under the tree, cards are sent and baking is done! (just kidding baking is Tania's department)  Hope everyone has a safe, happy and heartwarming holiday!  :)                 
Market Stuff:  Things are slowing down (first time since February?), there are less listings on the market, less sales, which means less buyers out there right now.  It DOESN'T mean that prices are dropping however, surprise surprise. :)

Tanger Outlets mall at Calaway Park not moving forward

CALGARY - A real estate developer that said a year ago it had plans to build a massive outlet mall adjacent to Calaway Park now says the project is not proceeding, the Herald has learned.

In announcing its third quarter financial results this week, RioCan Real Estate Investment Trust said: “RioCan and its partner, Tanger, will no longer be proceeding with the acquisition of the lands adjacent to (Calaway) Park near Calgary, AB as disclosed last quarter.”

SELLERS - Are You Selling Over The Holidays?

Should you decorate?  A lot of clients trying to sell during the holidays ask the question, “Can I put my tree up? Can I decorate?”  The answer is, Yes!  Just be mindful of a few things when you do it.

1. Don’t overdo it.  Less is definitely more at this time of year. You want to give a cozy holiday feel, but too much can overwhelm a potential buyer and they can’t picture what the house looks like the rest of the year.
2. Make sure anything you put out is in good repair.  If you put up Christmas lights make sure they all work and that they are hung neatly.
3. If your home is open concept, make sure you’re not blocking any views.  Also make sure that people can still move freely around your home, don’t make it an obstacle course.
4. Make sure that none of your decorations are covering up or hiding key architectural features: such as fireplaces, built-in’s, art niches, etc.
5. DON'T put any presents under the tree - This one is from 'Captain Safety' Tina.  :)

A decorated home at this time of year can really make your home feel inviting if you keep these things in mind.
