Is a well-deserved vacation in your future over the holidays? Don’t let the excitement of preparing for vacation blind you to the risks of leaving your home unprotected

We’ve prepared a checklist of the top 10 items to go over before you head out!

Dave Team Home Safety Check List: 

  • Have someone you trust to stay at your house or check in each day while you are away – in most cases, this can cover most of your bases!
  • Set light timers (if you have them) to go on periodically to create the illusion you are still home.
  • Have a neighbor, friend or house sitter take out and bring in garbage and recycling. There’s nothing like piles of unread newspapers and flyers to show a thief that no one’s been home!
  • Have your house sitter

With 2015 in our back pocket, we’ve launched into 2016 with a sellers market in Port Alberni and surrounding area. Houses are flying off the shelves of the real estate market and we have the SOLD signs to prove it!

 Right now in Port Alberni and on Sproat Lake, inventory is low and the buyers who are looking are active and motivated, making it an excellent time to put your house on the market before spring hits.

 For sellers, preparation is key. Make sure your home is clean and clutter-free to appeal to potential buyers. Removing personal touches may seem unfamiliar at first, but it helps buyers picture themselves living in your home.

Port Alberni is one of Vancouver Island’s gems – a small town that offers residents everything from outdoor adventure, boating and fishing, to restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Homeowners know that it provides everything they need, and here at the Dave Team, we are seeing that the Port Alberni Real Estate market is thriving with more and more out-of-town buyers. 

2015 has been busy. In October, we handled three times more volume than in October 2014. This is evident by the number of sold signs around Port Alberni. Just like the area, we’re growing and working with more buyers, helping them find and buy their dream home. And hey, who wouldn’t want to live in Port? 

The MLS benchmark price for a single-family home in Port Alberni rose 1.81% since

The social house works closely with local farmers and suppliers to provide a farm to table approach to their menu, which their Chef Jackson calls a ‘rustic focus’. Choose form 8 different beers on tap or select a bottle of BC’s finest wines to complement your
