Moncton Real Estate Forecast for 2014

It's 2014 and a year since my last post to this blog. Not that I haven't been blogging. I'm been posting on my #1 Moncton Real Estate Blog -blogMoncton.com - all last year.

So here is my prediction for the local real estate market for 2014

  •  Lots of listings from which to choose, in fact above average all year.
  • About the same number of buyers in the market as in 2013.
  • Buyers will have the advantage over sellers.
  • It will be another disappointing year for sellers who list their properties to "test the market".
  • These sellers will hold out for top dollar, hoping to find a unsophisticated or unrepresented buyer.


So, buyers, here it is. Buyer's market for buyers who find motivated sellers. And the best way to achieve that goal is for a buyer to be represented by an experienced buyer agent.

Moncton Real Estate Forecast for 2013

It's 2013 and a year since my last post to this blog. Not that I haven't been blogging. I'm been posting on my #1 Moncton Real Estate Blog - blogMoncton.com - all last year.

So here is my prediction for the local real estate market for 2013. Lots of listings from which to choose, in fact above average all year. About the same number of buyers as in 2012. However 2013 will favour those buyers over sellers who are motivated to sell. 2013 will be a disappointing year for sellers who only list their properties to "test the market".
These sellers will hold out for top dollar, hoping to find a unsophisticated or unrepresented buyer.

So, buyers, here it is. Buyer's market for buyers who, find motivated sellers. And the best way to achieve that goal is for a buyer to be represented by an experienced buyer agent.

An energy efficient house built ahead of its time

Not all twenty plus year old houses are energy hogs. Some were built to energy efficiency levels that are higher than most new housing being built today. Recently I listed for sale just such a house. This is a multi level style with over 2,000 square feet of living area above grade. Built for the owner with 9 inch thick walls rated at R-28, a heat recovery ventilation system and baseboard electric heat, this house is at the top tier of energy efficiency even today.



The NB Power bills from the last twelve months including taxes total under $3,000. That's a 12 month average of just $250 per month. If you would like to see the billing summary it's on the web site at www.29Aurora.info.
