Summer in Victoria! It doesn't get much better than this.
It has been a fairly busy year so far here in Victoria - sales are up over last year and well-priced, well-maintained, well-presented properties are going very, very quickly, often with multiple offers. The summer market is now in full swing with kids out of school - unfortunately a little early in many cases - and thoughts of up-sizing and down-sizing on people's minds.
Check out my latest new listing - a gorgeous third floor suite in Richmond Gate. One of the largest in the complex, this is an 'end' unit with exposure to the sound, west and north. Great area with easy access to all sorts of amenities, the University of Victoria, Camosun College, Jubilee Hospital and much more. Great location and great property for $449,000.
As I have always held, any time is a good time to make a move if that's what you want/need to do. Just give me a call if it's your time. For details on my listings please see My Listings page.
Open houses are a great way to get introduced to what's available in the market but be sure to stay true to your REALTOR® if you're already working with one. Tell the agent at the Open who your REALTOR® is and then don't tell them anything else - they don't owe you any agency obligation and if you ultimately decide you want to offer on the property, the listing REALTOR® is obligated to tell their client everything they know about you - make sure they don't know anything important! For a list of my upcoming Open Houses check out my Open Houses page. For most of the open houses going on in Victoria, click on the OpenHousesVictoria button for a comprehensive list. This is a great website for up-to-date information - check it just before you head out to open house - there may be new additions or some may be cancelled at the last moment.
