Hi Neighbour!

School's out for summer! The weather is starting to heat up and life is hopefully slowing down for everyone. Discover some great things to do in Lynn Valley below to fill the long sunny days and evenings.
Less rain and more sunshine also means that forest fire season is coming up again. Read more in our article about how the District of North Vancouver is preparing for it.

We've now launched our Eye ❤️ Lynn Valley contest, congratulations to all the winners so far and a big thank you to all our great sponsors - Nourish Market, Dairy Queen, Black Bear Pub and Red Tulip Gift Gallery. Keep your eye on our Facebook page to guess the mystery images that we post randomly. If you are one of the first five to correctly identify the photo, you'll be entered in a draw to win some great prizes.

Local Real Estate Update
Home seller supply grew as demand declined in the past month. With home sale activity dipping below long-term historical averages, the supply of homes for sale in Metro Vancouver reached a three-year high in June.

“Buyers are less active today. This is allowing the supply of homes for sale to accumulate to levels we haven’t seen in the last few years,” Phil Moore, REBGV president said. “Rising interest rates, high prices and more restrictive mortgage requirements are among the factors dampening home buyer activity today.”

“With reduced demand, detached homes are entering a buyers’ market and price growth in our townhome and apartment markets is showing signs of decelerating.”

If you've been on the fence about buying a home, now is a good time for buyers, so give us a call.
