Tis the Season to Find the Perfect Home!

Dec 21, 2016

Many people will tell you that December is traditionally a slow month for real estate, not us! We’ve had a great month at The Stockwell – we announced that we are 50% sold AND that our Top Floor Units are SOLD OUT.

Smart shoppers and economists alike will tell you that the ideal time to make a purchase is when no one else is buying - making this the perfect time to lock in your dream home!

Here’s why you should consider buying at The Stockwell in this traditionally ‘slower’ time of year:

  • In general there is less competition! With less people shopping for real estate you can get the home you want at the price you want! No bidding wars with other potential purchasers!
  • 2017 will bring a scheduled price increase at many new developments- including ours! Lock in 2016 pricing!
  • Buying for the first time? The BC government recently announced a new initiative that helps first time home buyers by contributing to the down payment they already have saved (up to $37,500 or 5% of the purchase price).
  • Did you know? There is no PTT on new construction under 750K in BC (bonus: this is true all year!).

Keep in mind, condo buyers are not as affected by seasonality as other home purchasers. Why? People with school age children (buying single family homes) try to buy and sell based around school schedules. Many condo buyers aren’t affected by these constraints and can therefore buy at any time of year. This means we homes at The Stockwell are still moving over the ‘slow’ winter months! If you have your eye on a particular unit, don’t assume it will still be here in January! If a new home is on your holiday wish list, call now to book your private appointment and reserve your unit!
