Gearing up for summer? Now is a great time to get your home in top shape for the months ahead. Whatever your weather, caring for your home now will help to ensure a worry-free, comfortable summer. Follow a few of these tips each week and you'll be done in no time.

OUTDOORS

  • Inspect siding for cracks and make any needed repairs.
  • If paint is peeling, cracking, or chipped, repair and repaint now to limit damage to the underlying materials.
  • Remove window screens and clean with a soft brush and soapy water. Repair any holes or tears or replace the screen material before reinstalling.
  • Have air conditioning units serviced to ensure good operation. Promote air circulation around the unit by keeping surrounding shrubs and plants trimmed.
  • Clear debris from gutters and eaves to allow rainwater to drain properly.
  • Seal cracks in the driveway and keep walkways clear of debris and overgrown plants.
  • Test irrigation/sprinkler systems and replace any broken sprinkler heads or emitters. Check for proper water coverage and adjust if necessary.
  • Power wash decks and patios and seal surfaces as appropriate.

INDOORS

  • Vacuum or brush off refrigerator coils to help maintain energy efficiency.
  • Empty dehumidifier pans and clean hoses according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • If possible, take area rugs outside and hang them over a deck or porch rail to air out.
  • Adjust ceiling fans for proper balance and change the rotation to the summer setting. While you're at it, give the unit a good dusting.
  • Switch heavy bedding out for lightweight summer fabrics. Have the winter bedding cleaned before storing it away for the season.
  • Close the chimney flue to prevent insects from entering and to help keep cool air in.
  • Repot houseplants to give their roots a fresh start for the summer.
  • Check door and cabinet hinges and lubricate any that stick or squeak.

Open windows on cooler days to keep fresh air flowing throughout the home.

SURREY, BC – Last month’s sales volumes on the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) were the highest for June since 2005 and rank as the fourth busiest month ever for MLS® sales in the Fraser Valley.

There were 2,413 sales processed on the MLS® in June, an increase of 45 per cent compared to the 1,668 sales processed in June of last year and also an increase of 23 per cent compared to May.

Jorda Maisey is the Board’s President. “This is the strongest residential market we’ve experienced since 2005 and prior to that in the early 90’s. What’s generating all this activity?

“Our informal market research shows that the majority of homebuyers in the Fraser Valley are families with children moving within their same community or moving within the Fraser Valley region. Our clients are telling us that they’re feeling confident with the current economic climate in BC and the long-term value of investing in real estate.”

In addition to a surge in sales, the number of new listings also picked up in June increasing by 11 per cent going from 2,989 last year to 3,316 last month; taking the number of active listings to 8,105.

Maisey adds, “With demand for detached homes and townhomes at peak levels, our advice to prospective buyers is interview a number of REALTORS® for help navigating what can be a stressful market. With the average home selling in just over a month and many homes receiving multiple offers, you need an expert to find you a home, protect you and position you for success.”

In June, the MLS® Home Price Index (MLS® HPI) benchmark price of a detached home was $609,900, an increase of 7.3 per cent compared to June 2014 when it was $568,600. The benchmark price of townhouses in June was $302,600, an increase of 1.6 per cent compared to $297,800 in June 2014. The benchmark price of apartments decreased year-over-year by 2.6 per cent, going from $197,000 in June 2014, to $191,900 last month.

Now available for the first time, are residential benchmark prices for the municipality of Surrey, as it is geographically defined encompassing the FVREB MLS® areas of North Surrey, Surrey-Central, Cloverdale, South Surrey, but excluding White Rock, which is its own municipality. Find the new City of Surrey – Combined prices for detached, townhouse and apartment on page four of the Monthly Statistics Package - June 2015.
