Buying in an up and coming neighbourhood is a savvy move that can really pay off. But how do you find such an area? Here are some tips to help you identify neighbourhoods on the upswing.

  • Take a drive or walk around town. Are the locals improving their homes and businesses? Look for such evidence as scaffolding, removal dumpsters, trucks and lawn signs belonging to trade services like general contractors, roofers, and painters. Improvement at the individual level is often tied to improvement at the community level.
  • While on your local tour, keep an eye out for signs of commercial investment. Businesses do their homework on an area before moving into it; if there are many new stores and services under development in a neighbourhood – popular coffee chains and trendy shops and eateries, in particular – that's a good indicator of positive growth.
  • Do some research into local facts and figures. A by-the-numbers picture of a community can be very telling as to the direction in which it's headed. Take housing starts for example: How have they been trending over the last six months? How do they compare year to year? Is enrollment in local schools decreasing, stable, or on the uptick?
  • Talk to a real estate salesperson. No one has their finger on the local pulse quite like a real estate rep; in addition to information on all the topics mentioned above, they can tell you if infrastructure plans are afoot for the area, if there's a big employer moving in and if available properties have begun to sell more quickly and for more money, for example.

A hot August market kept Fraser Valley real estate results on a positive track for 2014. A total of 1,302 sales in the month resulted in the best August sales results for the Fraser Valley real estate market since 2011.

Ray Werger, president of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, said, "As usual, we saw a typical summer slowdown in August compared to July, however like every month so far in 2014, August sales were higher than last year. It's the continuation of the story we've seen all year; a return to a normal, balanced market."

The Board added 2,382 new properties to the MLS® in August, finishing the month with 9,403 active listings.

Werger notes, "With interest rates as competitive as they are combined with the increase of affordable, new townhome developments in Cloverdale and Langley in particular, we're seeing first-time buyers bypass the condo phase to jump immediately to a larger, more expensive townhouse or a smaller single family home."

The MLS® Home Price Index benchmark price of a single family detached house in the Fraser Valley in August was $569,800, compared to $298,500 for townhouses and $196,700 for apartments.

The markets for detached and attached homes are very different. Please call me for an explanation of all your buying and selling options in today's real estate market.
