Sunday was a great time at Vancouver's International Jazz Festival!  Thank you to all my colleagues, clients and friends who came to see the Deep End perform (the R&B/Funk band that I play in).  There were hundreds of people in the street dancing.  What a fun event!

The 5-year fixed rates continue to ascend this week.  The 5-year rates are now at 3.59% which is a far cry from the 2.79% and 2.89% that we were seeing only a couple of weeks ago.  If you have a pre-approval and rate hold in place, time may not be on your side as you could see your interest rate increase as much as 0.80% if you purchase after your rate lock ends.  Also keep in mind that this differential could grow if rates continue to rise.

 

We expect to see an increase in activity despite the summer market being upon us as a result of the change in rates.  As we near the 1% difference between rate lock and current rates buyers begin to see a subtle change in their affordability which will push many of the low-motivation buyers to jump into the market unless the rates slip in the coming week(s).  Please contact Dale or me today if you have any questions and/or are ready to make your move.  There is no time like the present!

At the Habitat for Humanity ReStore Interior Design Institute Garage Sale today, my team called the "Design Divas" had 10 minutes and we could scout out 10 items to put together a "room"!  Here I am holding up the chandelier in our "Foyer"!  Guess what - we lost but had such fun and all for a good cause! Thank you to everyone that came by and made it a huge success!

I was helping to set up for this Garage Sale last night and got a sneak peek at some of the items being donated for this event.  I could not believe it - it really is one-of-a-kind (some brand new items!!) and all to support Habitat for Humanity's local families in the Lower Mainland.

 

Habitat for Humanity, in partnership with the Interior Designers Institute of British Columbia (IDIBC), will present the fifth annual DESIGNfinds Garage Sale on Sunday, June 23, 2013.  The new North Vancouver ReStore, 126 Harbour Avenue, will play host.  DESIGNfinds is an amazing one-of-a-kind garage sale where Interior Designers Institute members and exclusive industry suppliers donate new high-end products, showroom samples and gently used items for a one-day sale extravaganza.  All proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity Society of Greater Vancouver to help Build homes for local families in need.

Below is a link to a CBC story about the penalty one buyer had to pay for backing out of their pre-sale agreemend on a downtown Vancouver development.  Buying a pre-sale unit from a developer can be more complicated than purchasing a re-sale unit so you should not enter into such agreement without speaking to your realtor and lawyer to be sure that you understand the terms of the contract and the expectations of all parties invloved in said contract,  If you would like more information about developments and/or the pre-sale process please contact Dale and I.  Enjoy!

The Interior Designer Institute Garage Sale is coming up, Sunday June 23rd, and this year we are hosting it at the ReStore in North Vancouver  from 10am-4pm at 126 Harbour Avenue,

 

This is a fun event where the Interior Designer Institute of BC solicits donations from their network and helps us to sell the designer products at our store. It is a big revenue generator for us and an exciting day.

 

I will be volunteering on Sunday afternoon, so would love you to drop by and say hello. If you have not been to the ReStore yet, you WILL NOT BELIEVE what you can find there. Hope to see you!

The Arts are an essential part of every community which is why I make every effort to promote and defend in many cases theatre, music and visual arts around the city.  Dale and I had the opportunity to attend a fantastic event on Friday, June 14th at the Bental 5 in downtown Vancouver for the Fugue Theatre.

 

The Fugue Theatre is a professional theatre and music organization dedicated to the commissioning and production of original operetta and music theatre.  This is a non-profit organization that is working hard to fundraise for their upcoming fall production.  Organizations such as these rely not only on government funding/support, but on the blood, sweat and tears of their members. 

 

It was a fantastic event that included a sneak peak of the upcoming production, an art auction, live music (I played saxophone in the band), fantastic appetizers and lively conversation.

 

If you are interested in supporting the Fugue Theatre please visit their website...
