Holiday greetings and a look forward at 2014
Well, here we are… the middle of December, right in the thick of the holiday season, with Christmas less than 2 weeks away!
Looking back at 2013, it’s been a year of many blessings. I am grateful for the connections I have made, the clients who have trusted me with their real estate needs, and my continued health and good fortune. I hope that 2014 brings more of the same, with good tidings extended to all my friends, family, colleagues and valued business associates. In lieu of sending client gifts this year, I've decided to give back to a cause that is very close to my heart, by making a significant donation to the Brain Tumor Foundation of Canada.
Have you set any resolutions for the New Year? Experts suggest that the best way to follow through on the goals you set is to write them down and keep them some place visual that you can see them every day. That, and relying on the support of friends and family to get you where you want to be. If your goals for 2014 have anything to do with real estate or homeownership, I hope that you’ll consider me that source of support. I am great at listening to your needs and putting steps in place to implement your objectives.
2013 was a great year for the GTA market, and 2014 is showing signs of the same.If you are thinking of listing your home for sale this spring, now is a great time to start preparing. Once the holiday rush has settled down, give me a call. It’s never too early to start de-cluttering, taking care of some minor home repairs and just getting the ball rolling in order to sell for top dollar.
If you are thinking of buying in the next year, you may want to consider doing so in the earlier part of the year. There tends to be less competition in the winter months for available homes, and there is no indication that interest rates will rise in the next 6 months or so. This means it’s still a great time to lock in your mortgage. Whether you’re planning on upgrading, downsizing, or purchasing your first home, I’m happy to provide assistance with your search.
Whatever the upcoming year might bring for you, I wish you and your loved ones happiness, prosperity and success. It’s hard to believe another year is over… Here’s hoping that 2014 is your best year yet!
