Springtime sees seasonal surge

The traditional springtime surge in the housing market is well under way in Lynn Valley, where there has been a nearly 40% upswing in listings compared to the last quarter of 2011.

Average house prices are now over the $1 million mark, but strong apartment sales in the neighbourhood show that there are still many options for the entry-level buyer. Learn more about what sold in our community in the first quarter of 2012.

These two are worth more than a look!

Take a moment and check out these two great new listings Kelly and Jim have recently brought to market.  The first is a spectacular Noort-built half duplex in Lower Lonsdale (we’re happy to say the current owners are moving to beautiful Lynn Valley as soon as this home sells!) The second is a spacious townhome in Westlynn, with all the room and features your family could ever want!

Hear it from the Robindells – Jim and Kelly are a great team!

After interviewing several realtors, we decided to hire Jim and Kelly because we could immediately see what a great team they make.
