Strong Start for March Sales
March sales started out strong for the first two weeks, but slowed down drastically for the balance of the month. Both showings and sales were weak. This may be a combination of weather and the timing for Spring Break. Let's hope so.
There were some bright spots with Oak Bay showing strong sales the last few weeks. This should be a sign that the rest of the market will follow. I expect to see sales pick up over the next couple of weeks as spring arrives.

Take a good look around and UP.
If your roof needs to be replaced this is a good investment prior to selling to get a higher price for your home - most times you can transfer the roof's warranty to the new homeowner. A home needing a new roof can be a deal breaker for buyers.
