Over the years I have flirted with web design software, hired real estate webmasters, joined Realtor sites, LinkedIn, Active Rain, CRM and listing groups - all in the attempt to be noticed, heard. To rise above the white noise of the internet and other marketing marvels.Until a few years ago, when I slipped away from the mass productive sites, and started fooling with Wordpress templates, uploading my own design, copy, links and most importantly my own thinks.Surfing, touring, learning and tutoring late into the night, and early into the morning.The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.Henry Wadsworth LongfellowToday, many moons later, I am confident to say, I am well on the way...

Mid February already and Valentines buying is in full force! Even our almost 3 year old granddaughter blurted out last night that she wants a Valentines cake??? The power of advertising! So how do we make sense of “advertising” surrounding the housing market? Is it time to list? Time to start looking to buy? The question many of our buyers ask us at this time of year is - will the homes coming onto the market in the Spring be listed on average at lower or higher pricing than the current inventory? Should they wait to see what new homes will come on as there will be more choice; or if newly listed homes come on to the market at a higher price is it better for them to purchase now before prices go up? Looking at the actively listed homes for 1st of February versus 1st of January, we find ...

Vernon, BC V1H 2C9 Tel: 250.549.4249 W: www.ashpanairagallery.com W: www.headbonesgallery.com There is something about a multiple, about seeing the same image reproduced - doubled, tripled, quadrupled, multiplied! - that inspires a deep breath of satisfaction. Not only is the fascination with the increase of quantity brought into play but also the quality in the similarity of each print to the other. Pulled BC 2/2 satisfies the desire for exactitude of sameness. Reproduction (multiplying) is, after all, a basic concept of life. Original...

Here are the updated North Okanagan real estate statistics for March 2010. If you have been following our stats updates for awhile - you will want to note that we have made a change - we are now reporting the AVERAGE sale price. This is due to the change in the software we are using -currently the process to obtain the median price is not available without massive tech work - while we can get the average at the push of a button. - In this instance - expediency wins over what we WANT.
