    Any thoughts on Fraser Valley pricing changes

    Hi, I suggest listening in on Don’s behind the curtains. While mortgage rules are proposed to continue to tighten, the Fraser Valley is where affordability (somewhat) still is around Vancouver. Detached prices still need to adjust a bit but attached prices are forecasted to continue to rise...

    How do you turn down prospective tenants

    If you have picked another tenant, you can say “we have chosen someone else”. Usually it is not the best to say “we are still thinking/deciding” as they keep nagging.

    New West - Cash Flow?

Prices definitely have gone up in the last 1-2 years, but similar to most areas in the Fraser Valley, there are still cash flow opportunities. I do agree, they...

    How to build a real estate portfolio?

    Hi Angie, Maybe you should get a property manager? This puts these kinds of problems into the managers hands and is much easier for you.
