Old man Winter can do damage to your home so these are simple things you can do to save energy and repair costs.

  1. Change your furnace/ air conditioning filter
  2. Change batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
  3. Hook up your hoses to the hose bibs and check for leaks.
  4. Consider a seasonal maintenance check up on your air conditioner.
  5. Make sure your gutters are clean and pitched toward down spouts.
  6. Ensure that down spouts extend away from your home.
  7. Exterior GFCI electrical receptacles should be tested and or reset.
  8. Clear out window well drains and driveway drains.
  9. Check exterior wood surfaces for flaking paint and wood damage.
  10. Inspect roof from the ground for loose, curling, missing, cracking and cupping shingles. Binoculars work very well for this.
  11. Check masonry chimneys and siding for loose brick and mortar.
  12. Check chimney caps and vent openings for insect infiltration and bird nests.
  13. Look for water damage on fascia boards and soffits from over flowing gutters and down spouts.
  14. Check driveways and walkways for cracks and trip hazards.
  15. Check exterior wood steps and decks for slippery sections.

SURREY, BC – In March, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB) processed 1,259 sales on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®), an increase of 12 per cent compared to the 1,128 sales during March of last year, and a 14 per cent increase compared to February’s 1,102 sales.

Ray Werger, President of the Board, says, “We did see activity pick up last month with an increase in demand in particular for single family detached homes. Sales were noticeably higher in North Delta, Mission and Langley compared to last year.

“Last March, sales of detached homes accounted for 55 per cent of sales of our three main residential property types and this year that increased to 58 per cent. It may not sound like much, but that translated into over 100 more sales. The property type that lost ground was townhouses.” Werger explains, “Our main buyers are families looking for the best value possible by taking advantage of continuing low interest rates and stable home prices.”

The most popular price range for single family detached homes in the Fraser Valley last month was between $500,000 and $600,000. The benchmark price of a typical detached home was $563,400, an increase of 3.5 per cent compared to $544,300 during the same month last year.

For townhouses, the benchmark price in March was $297,100, a decrease of 0.4 per cent compared to $298,200 in March 2013 and the benchmark price of apartments was $195,400, a decrease of 4.3 per cent compared to $204,200 in March 2013.

The Board posted 2,799 new listings last month, an increase of 2 per cent compared to the 2,736 posted during March of last year bringing the total number of active listings in March to 8,763 – 8 per cent less than were available during March 2013.

Werger adds, “We can’t emphasize enough that real estate is local. What’s happening with the Fraser Valley housing market in general may or may not be happening to the market for your home. Contact your local REALTOR® for detailed market information by community, neighbourhood and property type.”

In March, Fraser Valley’s sales-to-active-listings ratio – a comparison of sales and inventory that measures the health of the market – was 14 per cent for all property types (residential and commercial combined); and, 18 per cent for the three main residential property types indicating stability in the marketplace.
