Is the market hot in Convent Glen? I'll let you be the judge. I just wanted to point out that the homes that hit the mls system lately are sold very quickly. In the past six (6) days there has been 3 new listings in the Convent Glen area. In the past 6 days, 2 of those 3 homes have offers on them. This is the time where buyers are out there looking to buy a home. 2 out of 3 are already conditionally sold. Should you wait to list your home? Is Spring going to be a better time to sell? Will you get more money for your home now or in the Spring? In my opinion if you are thinking of selling your home, this might be the better time. If you are thinking of selling your home give me a call or send me an e-mail ( jeanricher@jeanricher.com ) and I can offer you a free market analysis of your hom...

I just went to do an estimate on a nice home in Orleans. It is a 4 bedroom home, with newer roof and furnace. Located on a quiet street and ready to move in quickly. It has beautiful hardwod in the living and dining room, main floor laundry room, bright kitchen and family room. The master bedroom is very large and has it's own walk in closet & ensuite bathroom. The other 3 bedrooms can easily accomodate 3 other kids or an office space. There is also a nice backyard ready for you to enjoy the warm summer days (in a few months from now ;-) ) with a large deck and fully fenced. The basement is fully finished with two additional bedrooms, a rec room and another full bathroom plus lots of storage space.  Stay tuned for more information coming in the next few days.

Are you debating buying a new construction home but can’t seem to be able to choose between a single family home and town house? Although there is many factors to take in consideration when buying a home I will basically go over the investment view on this subject to find out which style of will get you the biggest bang for your buck once you sell. All this data was taken from the Avalon neighbourhood located in Orleans, (Ottawa), Ontario. I’ve compared prices of homes that sold this year with the price the home was originally purchased from the builders to find the average increase per year. On average single family homes in the Avalon neighbourhood of Orleans (Ottawa) increased 15.5% on average over the years. On the other hand town homes (row units) in that same neighbourhood of Ava...

Ottawa Housing Market is just booming and if a house stays on the market longer than 10 days - its either overpriced or its condition isn't appealing. I have a couple of Buyers looking to purchase a townhouse and we missed one by 'THAT MUCH' so we are still looking.  On Sunday, we visited a comparable home but even though the layout was good, the house hadn't been cleaned and to look at someone else's laundry is certainly not appealing. So, we are still looking of if someone was a very nice, clean, 3 bedroom townhouse (freehold) in the Orleans, ON area, please let me know. Ottawa Housing Market is sizzling!

I received a very interesting email the other day from one of my clients... here it is: Hi Christiane,  I was talking to a friend about the process of buying a house and she mentioned that a house inspection is ALWAYS done after an offer is presented. Is this ALWAYS the case or can a buyer request an inspection before putting in an offer? Is this something you have seen before? And, is it NOT OK to go that route? Such a great question and I'm glad she asked it! To be completely honest it is best to do an inspection BEFORE you put in an offer - many buyers get emotionally attached to their new potential home once the offer is negotiated and may pay less attention to issues if they arise during the inspection due to their emotions.  Now having said that it is not very common for Buyers to...
