Prince George Real Estate

 

Oh, by the way. I'm never too busy for your referrals!

----------------------
Now that banks and lenders have raised their fixed rates across the board from .15 to .25%, the next question is... what next?  Are they going to continue to rise?  Quicky? Slowly?  It partly depends on who you listen to and partly what you believe.  The majority of people whose opinions are listened to predict that interest rates will rise sooner than later and quicker than we expect.  Food prices are rising around the world fueling unrest but also attracting investment.  Predictions of higher commodity prices and bond rates are causing "upward pressure" on mortgage rates.  Investors in mortgages are going to place their money where it gets...

I just read over parts of an email I got with regards to the confusion with HST. When it comes to Real Estate and New Home construction there is allot of misunderstanding and it drives me nuts that the Home Builders Association does not do more in the way of promoting the positives for the consumer. If your looking to buy new construction the cost today should be lower. In pre-HST they had PST they could not claim back and passed on to  the consumer bu now with HST they can claim back the entire tax which should be passed on to the buyers = lower price compared to pre-HST.

Here is a new site for more info:
