RE/MAX of Nanaimo
I have just listed 2 homes and a business.
One home is a brand new 5 bedroom home with a 2 bedroom legal suite. The second home is a renovated 2 bedroom home. The business is a coffee shop in central Nanaimo "Serious Coffee".
I just designed a new mobile phone optimized web site. My full site was hard to read on an IPhone. The pages look like an app. For those technically inclined I programed it in jQuery. Mobile users going to my main page and listings page will automatically be redirected to the mobile optimized web pages.
Home prices continue to fall in price showing a $15,000 drop on average since last year. This is only a 4% drop but for those that were used to the prices going up every year it has created some opportunities for first time buyers and investors. While I have been slow since December I have noticed a dramatic increase in both buyer calls and people interested in listing their home. Sales of homes in the last 12 months is down about 11% from last year. Condo sales is also down 16%. Buyers seem to be looking at more before buying because of the increase in inventory. Sellers aware of this are taking more time to prepare their homes for sale.
