Here is part of an email I received from Pat Bell (MLA Prince George North) "The overarching strategy is supported by three main pillars. They are expanding markets for B.C. products, particularly in Asia; strengthening our infrastructure to get our goods to market; and working with employers and communities to enable job creation."

The Jobs Plan can be viewed at http://www.bcjobsplan.ca/regions  Check out the Cariboo Region!

CREA Partners with the RCMP for their Marihuana Grow Initiative (MGI)


 

Earlier today, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) launched their national strategy to combat marihuana grow operations (MGOs) in communities across Canada, known as the Marihuana Grow Initiative (MGI) (http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/news-nouvelles/2011/09-21-mgi-ircm-eng.htm). Director-at-Large Pauline Aunger was on hand at the launch, held at RCMP National Headquarters here in Ottawa, to represent The Canadian Real Estate Association, one of the official community partners of this initiative, and REALTORS® nationwide.


CREA’s role in this initiative is to help raise awareness of the health and safety concerns associated with the presence of MGOs and to provide expertise on their impact on the real estate industry.


Please find attached the RCMP’s news release announcing the MGI launch, which features a quote from CREA President Gary Morse.

Hi All


Thursday was an exciting day for Prince George and the forest industry with the announcement of the Wood Innovation and Design Centre. The building will set a new worldwide standard at 10 stories exceeding the current tallest modern wood building which is 9 stories. We all know this has been a long time coming but the result will be worth it and this iconic structure will again help support the new markets that we need for our industry.


Next week will be a very exciting week for us as we release the Jobs Strategy. I’ve been working on this for 6 months and I believe the result will serve every community in the Province well not matter how big or small. Stay tuned!


Have a great week!

Hello all,
Well the fall is upon us and I have a few moments to send out a few stats and my own personal observation of things.


1- I have added here two graphs - one is the Forecast of where things are and going. Since the 2008 economic crash, Prince George/ BC North has done well in slow moderate growth. The other is proof we are in a buyers market and the combination of that and record low mortgage rates adds up to the perfect time to be buying a home. For sure if your renting the cost of a mortgage payment is usually less.


2- To date (2011) here is sales and listings for Prince Georg Real Estate city limits since Jan.1 ,2011. There has been 667 sales vs 692 last year.
3- Presently there are a total of 541 homes listed of all kinds in city limits as of this report. This is on the low end, so if you thinking of up sizing or downsizing now through the fall will be a great time to sell.


Note about selling. I have noticed since the interest rates are low, most buyers have opted not to buy...
