Coquitlam Mounties released this sketch of the man investigators believe is behind an assault of a realtor in Port Coquitlam.

The British Columbia Real Estate Association is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone with information that leads to the apprehension and conviction of the man who assaulted a realtor in Port Coquitlam in May.

Coquitlam RCMP released a detailed sketch of the suspect earlier this week, hoping it would generate tips. The attack took place on May 4, when the victim was hosting an open house on Rowland Street. The realtor was assaulted before she was able to convince the suspect to leave. She did not suffer any serious physical injuries.

"Thankfully, these incidents are rare, but they do happen," said BCREA CEO Robert Laing said in a release. "Realtor safety is an important area of concern for all of us in the real estate profession."

The reward will be available through July 18, 2014.

Anyone with information is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 or Crime...

Environmental centre floated for heritage site

 By Jeremy Shepherd, North Shore News July 17, 2013

BCREA News Release

Bank of Canada Interest Rate Decision - July 17, 2013


New Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz stuck to the status quo this morning in his first interest rate decision, leaving the Bank's overnight target rate at 1 per cent.  The Bank expects growth in the Canadian economy to be "choppy" in the near term owing to unusual temporary factors such as flooding in Alberta, but overall its outlook for economic growth remains largely unchanged from April's projection of 1.8 per cent real GDP growth in 2013 and 2.7 per cent growth next year. The Bank expects inflation to remain subdued in the near term due to persistent excess capacity in the Canadian economy, but still expects inflation will return to its 2 per cent target in mid-2015 as previously forecast. Notably, the Bank's previous recurring statement regarding withdrawal of monetary stimulus has been altered and perhaps softened to "Over time, as the normalization of these [economic] conditions unfolds, a gradual normalization of policy interest rates can be expected."

The Vancouver Real Estate Market is improving:  Is this positive spin?  No, the market has shown dramatic improvement in the last month.  In fact transactions at RE/MAX Crest are up approximately 30% over last year for the month of June.  There are many explanations for the increase in market activity.  A couple of the contributing factors that we have experienced firsthand in recent weeks are listed below: 

 

1) Interest Rate Increases:  In recent weeks the 5-year fixed rates moved from 2.79% to 3.19%.  Dale and I have several buyers whose rate holds will expire in September which is creating a greater sense of urgency for these buyers.  We are experiencing similar feedback from other agents in our office and at open houses and showings.

 

2) Pent-up demand:  The Vancouver real estate market experienced three quarters of what most would label a sluggish real estate market.  During these market conditions many buyers and sellers...

VANCOUVER -- Mayor Gregor Robertson is selling his $1.95-million home near Douglas Park and moving to Kitsilano — to a new property close to the proposed Point Grey bicycle route.

 

That means the mayor won’t be voting on issues relating to the project, according to a written statement from Robertson’s office on Wednesday.
