VIDEO: Just A Thought: Should I Use A Country Agent?

This is a question that comes up on a regular basis and it is usually asked by someone with a house to sell in the country or a person looking to buy in the country.

Every agent in Ontario takes the same basic courses to get their real estate licence. But all agents are not the same. We bring different skill sets, we have different experiences within real estate and we tend to pick areas that we like to work.

Bev and I consider ourselves to be country agents because 80-90% of our business is in the country or rural communities surrounding Ottawa. However, we do sell in the city, especially in the south end, as we lived in that part of Ottawa for 20 years and know it so well. We are also “Seniors Real Estate Specialists” and work with seniors across the whole region. Other agents will do the reverse, or they only sell city or country properties.

Check out the video and decide what is best for you.

VIDEO: How Is The Market In Orleans?

The real estate sales numbers for Orleans are out.

The Ottawa Real Estate Board recently released the sales numbers for the first quarter (January to March 31,2018).

In general, the board numbers are very good and the Orleans area is no exception.

Orleans sales totaled 400 this year compared to 343 in 2017.

If we use 10th line as a rough dividing line between east and west Orleans, we see that the eastern section (most of MLS District 11) had 258 sales this year compared to 229 last year. The western sector (MLS District 20) had 142 sales this year compared to 114 sales at this time last year.

These are good numbers if you are thinking about selling.

How can we help you? Would a free, no obligation market evaluation of your home help you out?

Check out this link to see how the Orleans sales numbers break down. Find out what price ranges are selling and what types of homes are the most popular.

VIDEO: How Is The Market In Greely?

The Sales Numbers are in for the Ottawa Real Estate Board. They cover the first three months of sales from January 1st to March 31st. The overall results are very good with 1,660 residential properties sold in March, compared with 1,478 in March last year. This is an increase of 12.3 per cent. This breaks down into 1302 home sales and 358 Condos sales.

However, sales results always vary from community to community and this is very true in the rural areas that surround Ottawa. In many of our rural communities we have seen sales volume drop, but this is not due to a poor market, but a lack of homes on the market. Agents have buyers, but very little to show them. If you are in one of our rural communities and you are thinking about selling this year, now is an excellent time to get on the market. In many rural communities the market is shifting to a “sellers market” IE sellers are getting higher prices due to there being fewer competitors out there.

On our main web page (www.BeardsleyTeam.ca), we post sales statistics for several rural and urban communities as well as some videos that highlight sales in individual communities. If you don’t see one that you are interested in, call or text 613-897-6839 and we will be happy to provide you with the information. It is FREE and NO OBLIGATION on your part.

Greely has had a very good market over the last few years and this year it is doing very well and it is ahead of last year’s numbers at this time.

VIDEO: BEHIND THE SCENES PART TWO

BEHIND THE SCENES PART TWO

Selling real estate is so much more than putting a house on MLS, a sign on a property and then sitting back to wait for the phone to ring.

We decided to have a bit of fun and give you a few “Behind the Scenes” looks at some of what we do to help our buyers and sellers have a rewarding and successful experience.

We don’t believe in sitting and waiting for the phone to ring as these two videos show (I have also included the first one if you missed it).

If you are thinking about buying or selling this year or if you have any questions, call or text 613-897-6839.
