West Vancouver Home Buyers Christmas Wish List

Lovely December is finally here, just like everyone is expecting. While December is the most exciting holiday season in a year, real estate market seems to be so quiet. It is obvious, isn’t it? Every one is busy shopping for Christmas gifts, planning holiday visit to families and relatives, and maybe preparing for holiday parties. No matter how you will celebrate this Christmas season, you are un-likely to spend time driving around to check show homes or open houses in your interested area.

But as a savvy home buyer, you still can do West Vancouver property search online in between holiday hassles. Sitting in front of the computer, drinking your favourite cocoa or cider, browsing those real estate listings in your interested area while making a wish list for your new home. I bet it’s a enjoyable moment.

A few things you might want to consider when adding to your dream home wish list:

1. New or recently renovated fixtures. Unless you want to buy a fixer-upper, you may see a house in need of a new roof or windows as one to pass. Home owners know, too, in order to make a house attractive to buyers they must concede to a few changes and improvements. You may be more inclined to bid on a house with a new roof or HVAC, newer windows and upgraded kitchen appliances. This way you don’t have to replace anything right off the bat and spend more money.

2. Eco-friendly applications. Everybody is “going green” these days, and with eco-friendly fixtures added to a house you may see energy bills reduced. If the homes you browse have money-saving appliances like thermal windows and a tank-less water heater, you definitely want to make note. Consult with a real estate agent, too, and let them know you are interested in green homes.

3. Big garden or small garden. You may want your kids to have spacious play area in the garden. And depending on how much time you would like to spend in taking care of the lawn, trees and flowers. Be honest and realistic to yourself.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all West Vancouver home buyers and home owners! Don’t forget to check the featured West Vancouver homes for sale listings.
