Last Minute Summer Ideas

End the season on a high note with these simple but super fun summer activities for the whole family!

  • Go on a picnic (or host one!). Pack a picnic basket with your favorite sandwiches or salads, and go out.  Eat with your family some place other than a dining table.  You can also host a picnic-style luncheon with friends or your relatives. Be it in a park or your backyard.  One thing for sure is this is a refreshing twist to your usual get together.
  • Go camping. Plan a simple camping trip.  Bust out your tents, sleeping bags, board games, and get together with your friends or the whole family for some quality time out in the woods.  A low-key option for kids is taking them on a “camping trip” to your backyard - BUT with all the bells and whistles, so they’d still get to experience all the fun activities associated with spending some quality time with their friends outdoors.
  • Go swimming one more time. Enjoy a fun day at the pool, Gregoire Lake, or a splash park one last time before summer ends; or don’t miss out on your chance to go swimming this summer if you haven’t had the chance to do it yet.  Take lots of photos - make memories with your family, and don’t forget to hydrate and wear sunscreen!
  • Frozen Treats! Spend a day with your family and friends and enjoy healthy home-made frozen treats, like fruit popsicles made with berries and coconut water, or different...

Fort McMurray Real Estate Market Update

Hi Friends!
First off, I want to congratulate my clients, Jennifer and Jonathan who won $15,000.00 in our Canada 150 draw.  Anyone who bought or sold with me from January to July was entered to win.  I am very happy for them and would like to thank everyone who came out for some free family fun.  Stay tuned for what is to come next!  Is it really half way through August?  I find it hard to believe how fast the summer months have gone by.  Very soon, it will be back to school and fall coats before we know it.

When you look at the stats this month, do not be alarmed with the 40+ percent decline, as this is due to last year’s wildfires. In July 2016, we have seen a significant market sales increase brought about by the significant housing loss.  If you look back to July 2015’s 52 single family home sales, it is more in-line with July 2017’s 43 single family home sales.

If you have any questions about the condo market or the mobile market, or if you need some solid advice, please reach out and take advantage of my expertise.  That's why I'm here.  When you need to talk to a real estate expert - someone who is knowledgeable about the local market and considers you a valued client, know that I will be available to help you out.
