If you’re planning to sell your South Okanagan home in the near future, you’re likely planning to list it in the springtime, when the real estate market heats up. But selling during the peak real estate season isn’t always necessary – if you’re eager to sell your home during the off-peak season, it can be done. Here are just a few ways that you can benefit from selling your home during the off-peak season.

 If you’re looking to save money on your next home purchase – or find a great property to flip – then buying a foreclosure can help you to get a good deal.

So how can you make a successful offer on a great foreclosure property? Here’s what you need to know.

If you’re planning to buy a new house in the near future, you probably already know that there will be a number of different parts to the process. You probably also know that a number of the expenses associated with buying a home can be negotiated. But one expense you’ll want to pay top dollar for is a home inspection. Home inspections provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your new home is in good condition. But how do home inspections work? Here’s what you should know.

So you’ve found the perfect home, in the perfect location, and you’ve worked out a great price. It’s time to close the sale – and closing a home sale usually goes quite smoothly, right? If you know your closing costs ahead of time, yes it does. But if you start closing on a home without knowing what you’ll need to pay, you may find that taking possession of your new home isn’t as easy as you’d have thought. So how much money do you need to budget for closing costs? Here’s what you need to know.

 If you’re planning to buy a home in the near future, you’ll want to act sooner rather than later. The historically low mortgage rates that we’ve seen this year are set to disappear in 2016, and we won’t be seeing those rates again for some time.
