Westside Vancouver real estate is really booming. despite all the negative predictions, the wealthy ones are still moving to our great city, and thank goodness they are bringing incredible loads of money along with them.

Where does that money go? it is mostly spent towards purchasing Westside Vancouver real estate. With this huge wave of rich Chinese coming to Vancouver, and due to them have becoming so picky with the way they choose their future home, old Westside Vancouver real estate owners have been enjoying selling their properties for very good prices.

It seems that everybody wants a good piece of Westside Vancouver real estate to build their own drem homes.

How long this market trend is going to last? who knows, but an optimistic assumption would be, as long as China's economy is good. Well, I can only say God bless them.

Almost every Realtor that I bump into, complains about having a hard time selling a brand new home. That is true, with the new shift in the market brand new Vancouver homes are hard to sell, or actually westside Vancouver I should say.

I have been working with many buyers in the past few years, mostly Chinese, and I have come to realize that the developers are not meeting the consumer's expectations.

The market for the Vancouver homes had been really good for quiet a few years, and because of that many developers who were benefiting from that booming new house market, got a little spoiled.

What happened next? they started putting less and less. Using the cheapest material possible, asking their wives and family members, who had no taste, to do the interior design, which often demonstrated disastrous results, and using the same faulty floor plan over and over to save on drawing costs, caused the Vancouver homes market to start reshaping itself and shifting towards a new direction.

So, this is probably why all those wealthy newcommers want to build their own dream home, and as we move forward they become more and more aducated and soon enough there will be no room for those developers who do not do a good job.

Stocks vs. Real Estate
Jark Krysinski, TeamYVR Team Leader, BA,ABR,IRES,IMSD,LLB (REMAX CREST REALTY WESTSIDE)

How stocks have performed relative to Real Estate prices in Canada at large.  Which one makes better long-term investment?  The article "Stocks vs. Real Estate"  give us some useful data for us to decide whether to  invest stocks or real estate.   Appreciating 12.4% annually between 2001 and 2006, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller U.S. Home Price index. That clobbered stock prices, which gained only 4.3% a year as measured by the S&P 500.   Although over the long run stocks win easily, it is also more risky.

It really needs to think twice before you invest. Want to earn more and with less  risk? Find us to ask, we are sure we will give you worthy information.

Arts Club Theatre Vancouver Presents White Christmas 2011

Arts Club Theatre Vancouver Presents White Christmas 2011

We were so fortunate again this year to have my brother, Mark Weatherley, and sister-in-law, Monique Lund, home for Christmas.  Mark and Monique live far, far away in Stratford, Ontario.  However, they are both actors, and came back to Vancouver to star in A White Christmas, at the Stanley Theatre in Vancouver this season. Here are some photos Monique was kind enough to take "behind the scenes" of the cast of White Christmas.

Arts Club Theatre Vancouver - White Christmas

Monique plays the part of Judy, one of the main characters, and Mark plays Sheldrake and Ezekial.  Monique definitely takes the house down with a tap number she does, where she dances on top of a piano!  She also has some wonderful costume changes, wearing stunning 1950's vintage dresses. 

Arts Club Theatre Vancouver - White Christmas

The shows are all sold out, and the show will be ending soon, but keep checking back, as the Arts Club Theatre runs some amazing live theatre shows.  Also, the Arts Club Theatre only receives 50% of its operating revenue from ticket sales.  Therefore, it's important to make a charitable donation to the Arts Club Theatre.

Oh, I love this photo of my brother, Mark, pointing out "Exit Stage Right" - get it?!!!

Country Furniture Vancouver showcases Edible Garden author, Andrea Bellamy

Country Furniture Vancouver showcases Edible Garden author, Andrea Bellamy

Andrea Bellamy, Sugar Snaps and StrawberriesWhat does one do on a rainy, grey Saturday afternoon?  I sure needed a pick-me-up.  One of my favourite things to do is visit Country Furniture, on South Granville in Vancouver.  Ok, honestly, I really think they should re-name the furniture store "French Country Furniture", because what keeps me coming back is all the French influenced furniture and accessories.

Today was the result of receiving Country Furniture's newsletter a little while back.  The store kept advertising a local Vancouver author, Andrea Bellamy, who has recently released a book called Sugar Snaps and Strawberries.  If the title isn't enough to warm your heart, then flipping through the pages of this delightful book certainly will.  As a visual person, I really appreciate the beautiful photographs throughout this book of herbs and vegetables showcased in beautiful pots and vessels. 

Sugar Snaps and Strawberries covers creating edible gardens in small spaces, such as you apartment balcony or townhouse garden.  Country Furniture - Vancouver Coop community gardens are also mentioned.  To quote the book, it's all about "simple solutions for creating your own small-space edible garden".  Now I don't know about you, but I'm really not a gardener.  I don't have indoor plants because I kill them.  However, Andrea assures me that this book is for the beginner and even hopeless cases like me can achieve some form of success.  The book is set out in simple step by step instructions to help achieve a little urban garden oasis in your urban jungle. 

Now, as a Home Stager, you know I have to bring this back to home staging...  How exciting would it be to a potential buyer if on your deck you had urns full to the brim with herbs and veggies, all ready for the picking.  Talk about creating an enviable lifestyle.  As long as there's someone (Realtors...) to water the plants, this could really speak to a buyer's emotions.  With Jamie Oliver's quest to create meals incorporating what is grown in the garden (although he does confess to hiring gardeners...), wouldn't a pot of herbs speak to all those foodies out there!  

The book, Sugar Snaps and Strawberries is published by Timber Press, and has been released in both Canada and the U.S.  Also, check out Andrea Bellamy's Blog, Heavy Petal Enjoy, and happy growing and cooking!

Does this House Move You? - Staging a House with Emotion
Sally Weatherley, Vancouver Home Staging, Home Stager Vancouver, B.C (EXIT STAGE RIGHT)

Does this House Move You? - Staging a House with Emotion

Home Staging VancouverHome staging is not just about placing furniture in a vacant property, or adding fresh towels in the bathroom or throwing some colourful toss cushions on a sofa and calling it a day.  At Exit Stage Right, we believe there is so much more to home staging than meets the eye.  I always find it rather amusing, those who feel they can stage a property themselves and think they don't need a professional Home Stager. 

A really good Home Stager will take an uninteresting corner and turn it into an interesting feature.  They will add something that tugs at your heart strings, or makes your heart skip a beat.  It will be a little touch here or a little interesting grouping there that makes you sigh or catch your breath, either consciously or subconsciously. 

Don't settle for just ok.  Wow buyers by hiring a Real Estate Home Stager who can really grab a home buyer's attention and let them remember your home above the other 10 homes they visited that weekend.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere There's Signs - Home Selling in Vancouver
Sally Weatherley, Vancouver Home Staging, Home Stager Vancouver, B.C (EXIT STAGE RIGHT)

Signs, Signs, Everywhere There's Signs - Home Selling in Vancouver

As a Home Stager in Vancouver, I often give advice on curb appeal.  I suggest several things:

- Plant colourful flowers
- Add planters with flowers or ornamental trees
- Paint the front door a contrasting colour
- Clean up the yard, store the hose reel, pick up after Fido
- Clean the windows
- Prune the bushes
- Cut back the tree to better see the house
- Add a new mail box
- Add more up-to-date house numbers

political signs when selling your homeOne point that has never come up before, is the question of election signs in the front yard while you're trying to sell your home.  We are having a national election here, and voting day is today, May 2nd.  There are political signs everywhere right now, littering the city. 

I recently staged a home that is located on a busy main street.  Having a political sign on this street would be invaluable to a political party, as thousands of people drive this road day in and day out.  I felt it was my duty, as a home stager, to caution the home owner that by displaying one political party's sign, they may be alienating potential buyers who align themselves to another political party.  The name of the game here is attracting the broadest range of buyers to view your house.  Also, in my opinion, the Realtor's® sign is dwarfed and pretty much lost amongst the political party's sign.  

What's your vote?  Do you think it matters if you display political signs when selling your house?
