Two guitars, two vocalists, and one harmonica. They consider their music to be Folk-Rock with a Country edge. They’ve played The Heritage Grill in New Westminster numerous times, as well as the Railway Club and a one day tour of Gambier Island for a Cancer benefit. They also have a regular gig at Astral Connections in North Delta, as well as Renaissance Books in New Westminster. Mike and Bob both have solo albums as well which you can find on i-tunes, and have recently recorded the first WESTFALL MOUNTAIN album, also released on i-tunes.

Maria Mak. Burnaby Realtors - Greater Vancouver housing market hits summer lull

By Maria Mak - Sut... on August 3, 2012 - 3:39pm


VANCOUVER, BC – Residential property sales in Greater Vancouver remained at a 10-year low in July, while the number of properties being listed for sale continued to edge down and prices remained relatively stable.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that there were 2,098 residential property sales of detached, attached and apartment properties in July. That’s an 18.4 per cent decline compared to the 2,571 sales in July 2011 and an 11.2 per cent decline compared to the previous month’s 2,362 sales.

July sales were the lowest total for that month in the region since 2000. They were 31.2 per cent below the 10-year July sales average of 3,051.

“People appear to be cautious about making significant financial decisions right now. While our local economy appears to be quite robust, there may be some concern about the impact of international markets and the federal government’s tightening of mortgage regulations,” says Eugen Klein, REBGV president.

.Maria Mak. Burnaby REALTOR® .Burnaby Real Estate Agents .When someone asks how house prices are doing...

By Maria Mak - Sut... on July 23, 2012 - 8:20pm

When someone asks how house prices are doing in a particular neighbourhood, the question seems easily answered.

The big real estate boards all issue monthly price reports that spell out what the average selling price was in the previous month and how that compares to the month, and the year, before.

But there's a problem with trying to divine market direction from average price data. It's just too blunt a tool.

If real estate — as the saying goes — is really about "location, location, location," then average prices frequently don’t capture the reality of what's going on in a particular city or neighbourhood.

Calculating the average house price is as simple as adding up the prices realized for all home sales in a particular month and dividing by the number of sales. The problem with that metric begins to emerge, however, when one or more parts of the housing market don't act in tandem with all the other segments, as they seldom do.

Average price:

The average price is the figure obtained by dividing the total dollar volume of sales in a given period by the number of sales.
