Welcome winter and that Christmas feeling! Buying a home is also about the feeling you get when you step onto the property. But like the season or even the weather, there can be other factors that play into the real estate market and can effect your feelings about buying or selling.
As we come to the end of 2012, there will be many statistics from this past year out there that may affect your feelings about selling or buying as they discuss not only the markets but everything from employment to tourism. Although this can effect the real estate market, it does not necessarily dictate what will happen in all areas.
Doing your homework and getting a feeling about your area or the area you'd like to purchase in, can pay off in the long run. Not only will you have the knowledge to make better decisions, but it could help decide what will work for you so that you will be happy with your purchase. Here is one site that gives an overall view of some of the statistics in our province. Take a moment to look at BC Stats to see where we've been and where we could be heading.
If you'd like to discuss where the Cariboo/Chilcotin may be heading for 2013, give me a call and we can look into the future together. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
