1. Location. Over history it's been said that the three things to look for in buying a property are (1) Location, (2) Location, and (3) Location. There are positive and negative factors to almost every location. Let's pretend your property is right next door to a fire station. You need the kind of marketing professional that can sell the benefits of not having to worry about your new home burning down, or perhaps the savings on fire insurance. Seriously, no matter where your property may be located, there is a ready, willing, and able buyer in the marketplace. You just have to be creative and sell the benefits.2. Condition. Making a good first impression is important in getting a property sold. Painting the front door and trim, making sure the doorbell works, putting furniture and cloth...

With construction buzzing year round in BC, Ski Resort Decor is seasonable in the 'off season'! Obviously spring is the time for getting a great head start on chalet, condo & cabin interiors outfitting & arrangement ready to go for the snow season in November. Elk Antler Floor Lampavailable in mainland US only The rush is really on in the autumn. I've met the 'snowfall' deadlines, but with a lot of scurrying!   Svelt Italian Modern decor is making appearances at the resorts. However, if you own a rental property, you likely well know that skiers are rough on rental and lodge properties. Certainly you would not use glass, or otherwise sleek smooth surfaces in these interiors for ski boots & gear to be landing on and scraped across!It is always best to consider rustic durable style from t...

The South Okanagan housing market has benefited from robust consumer demand for the Okanagan region, as a whole. Vancouver Island and the Okanagan are preferred locations of adult lifestyle and retiree buyers, attracting the preponderance of BC migrants over 55 years of age. With the leading edge of the baby boomers now reaching retirement age, the South Okanagan housing market will continue to be a beneficiary of this important demographic segment. A record number of MLS® sales were recorded by the South Okanagan Real Estate Board in 2005. While sales dipped 7 per cent to 2,199 units last year, it was enough to achieve the second highest ranking. Housing affordability has eroded in the region over the last five years, making it unlikely MLS® sales will reach a new record over the forec...

Vancouver (Reuters)Day 2 - Vancouver Blizzard 2006 - Revenge of the CommutersChilled Vancouver commuters faced their second day of winter hell today, as an additional ¼ centimeter of the peculiar white stuff fell, bringing the lower mainland to its knees and causing millions of dollars worth of damage to the marijuana crops. Scientists suspect that the substance is some form of frozen water particles and experts from Saskatchewan are being flown in. With temperatures dipping to the almost but not quite near zero mark, Vancouverites were warned to double insulate their lattes before venturing out.Vancouver police recommended that people stay inside except for emergencies, such as running out of espresso or biscotti to see them through Vancouver 's most terrible storm to date. The local C...

Sigh, it's snowing....if you're a skier, snowboarder, or snow plow operator, I guess you're happy!   At least I hope you are and I begrudge you nothing..... sort of.  Nuff said on that part of the topic.  I am about to drag myself off to the couch, plop down, grab my coffee and watch "American Thunder".  If I can't ride, at least I can dream of riding, watch someone else ride, or see all of the excellent bikes and trikes.  Tis the season for withdrawel....lalalalala  lala lala.  I'm fortunate to live where I do, small town, know most of the folks here, and they just put up with me.  I actually show homes on my bike, and haven't had a bad comment yet....course, the leathers are good for closing, unless people are easily intimidated  :-)Anybody else out there that incorporates their lifes...

A guy buys a new Lincoln Navigator from Merlin Motors in Saskatoon for $42,500.00 (with monthly payments of $560.00. He and a friend go duck hunting at Tobin Lake in mid-October; and of course the lake is frozen. These two guys go on a lake with their GUNS, a DOG, and of course the New NAVIGATOR.They decide they want to make a natural looking water area for the ducks, something for the decoys to float on.Now making a hole in the ice large enough to invite a passing duck, is going to take a little more power than the average drill auger can produce.So, out of the back of the new Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short 40 second-fuse. Now our two Rocket Scientists, afraid they might slip on the ice while trying to run away after lighting the fuse (and becoming toast, along with t...
