Canada's Housing buy/rent ratio shows real estate ‘vulnerable'   Canada's Housing buy/rent ratio shows real estate ‘vulnerable’ Michael Babad These are stories Report on Business is following today. What the buy/rent measure shows A buy/rent measure of Canadian real estate shows Canada's housing market is "vulnerable" to higher mortgage rates, Desjardins Securities says. Canadian house prices have rebounded markedly from the depths of the recession, hitting a fresh record in may and bringing the buy/rent ratio to about 1.85x. That means that, even excluding major factors such as taxes and maintenance, homeowners pay about twice what renters pay. "This is precipitously close to the 2.3x level reached in December 2007 and the 2.5x level reached in 1988, which preceded house price correcti...

Thank you Summerland for helping us find our friend’s dog - Doodle.   We had agreed to dog sit a little dog while friends went on holidays only to have it dart away from us and our home.  We spent hours searching our neighborhoods.  Hours turned into days and days turned into weeks.  We had tremendous support from everyone from Rose at Dog Control to supportive neighbors that drove for hours calling and looking for Doodle. Three weeks plus a day the owners had camped out in the area Doodle was spotted this past Friday and on Thanksgiving Doodle came to them in their travel trailer.  We had tried everything and nobody was able to get close to Doodle but as fate would have it Doodle was reunited  to her family a lot lighter and hungry BUT very happy. For me, (the one that the dog darted f...

From the desk of... Lisa JaagerHow could it possibly be August 13th? This year has positively flown by... this summer has been very, very busy in Summerland. We had a slow start to the season but July has made up for that! Our July stats (every person who walks through our doors) show an increase of 24.9% over July 2009. That is incredible. If you consider that approximately 7 - 10% of visitors stop at a Visitor Information Centre, we have an extra 1000 people EACH DAY in Summerland. How are you capturing that potential customer or client? Something to think about...Over the August long weekend, SCEDT and the District of Summerland, with sponsorship from local business including Re/Max Orchard Country, the Summerland Review and AM 1450, pulled together a marketing campaign to showcase S...

Raising a glass to marketing - Summerland BC By John Arendt - Summerland ReviewPublished: August 11, 2010 3:00 PM Updated: August 11, 2010 3:17 PM Instead of Help Wanted signs on business doors, there are now downtown buildings with For Sale and For Rent signs in the window. It's a disappointing change from just a few years ago. The global recession has made its presence felt and even though there are some encouraging signs of recovery, business is not what it once was, especially in the retail sector. Added to that, some merchants are complaining about the inconvenience from the road construction on Rosedale Avenue and Prairie Valley Road, a project continuing until the end of this winter. There is however one sector of Summerland's economy which seems to be weathering the economic slu...

Summerland BC's heart is broken with the tragic loss of Bela (Anabela) Blystone and her mom. This past week has been hard as we try to absorb what happened last week to Bela and her mom.  Janice and I met Bela when we first moved to Summerland over 15 years ago and we instantly loved her because of her enthusiasm for life, which always gave her face a SMILE. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bela’s family as we all must deal with this great loss....................... Love from the MAASKE Family
