The Current Market in a Nutshell

Condos are still a hot commodity but single family homes are taking longer to sell.

4770 single family homes listed and only 621 sold in February.  Maybe it’s a good time to buy a house instead of a condo.

Hopefully a few people are a little more comfortable this holiday.

Thank you to all my clients for being part of the solution to end homelessness in Vancouver this year. For each property sold, I make a donation to those in need in our community. Some of the charities that received donations this year include Hollyburn Family Services Housing for seniors, Coast Mental Health, Renfrew House, Habitat for Humanity and StreetoHome. All provide long term housing support with the goal to ending homelessness in Vancouver.  I want to sincerely Thank You  for your part in making the contributions possible. With our help, hopefully a few people are a little more comfortable this holiday:)

Escape the Rat Race to OSOYOOS

Weeping Willows & Wisteria……Osoyoos!

This property is currently operating as a very successful Guest House with holiday renters in the summer and Snowbirds in the winter. There’s even a RV hookup!   BUT it could accommodate 4 families long term or live in the main suite and rent the other 3 x 2 bedroom suites.  All this on a beautifully landscaped property, on a small lake, five minutes from downtown Osoyoos.                 MLS® R2200371

Renfrew House: a HOME for youth.

Renfrew House is a “HOME” for youth dealing with addiction and/or mental health issues.   It houses 8 youth and provides intensive, 24/7 support by qualified, dedicated staff.  I know first hand the incredible work being done by both the staff AND youth at Renfrew House and I know it works! Over the last 2 years I followed a young man’s journey from the street to a long term supported home. After accessing numerous services while “on the street”, life changed when he found Renfrew House through ICY, Inner City Youth, a Providence Healthcare Program. It is “a night and day difference” from where he was to where he is now!                                                                                                                                           Thank you for all you do for youth at Renfrew House!!

As I am committed to making a difference to Homelessness in this city, a donation has been made to support Renfrew House.

Supporting the Homeless through Home Sales

With the incredibly high rent and even higher real estate prices in this city, too many Vancouverites are not able to find adequate and affordable housing. It’s a terrible black mark on our beautiful city. And not just here, but also on the Sunshine Coast. For each property  purchased or sold, a donation will be made to support the homeless.

 

Sold~ 12753 Gulfview Rd

A donation has been made to Habitat for Humanities. Although Vancouver suffers from a housing crisis, we can’t forget that it effects other communities as well and the Sunshine Coast residents are very much effected by limited housing.     https://habitatsc.ca/?page_id=31

“Peggy has done a wonderful job as our realtor. We live in Seattle and are not familiar with all the regulations and customary ways of owning real estate in Canada. She guided us through the entire process of purchasing and finding a property manager. Peggy was very honest, diligent and prompt in following up with any questions or issues.” Thanks,  Jane and Paul!
