This past weekend was day light savings, a smart way to help you remember to test your smoke alarm & carbon monoxide detector as recommended twice a year to ensure your family & home's safety is to check it whenever the clocks change… if you haven't done so already now would be a good time to check and make sure they are in working order or that the batteries need to replaced. As it is now spring break lots of people are starting their "Spring Cleaning"… get all your old unwanted items ready for the city of PoCo's 4th annual city-wide garage sale on Saturday April 21st, if you would like to participate and get rid of some old items register before April 12th in person at City Hall or online at http://www.portcoquitlam.ca/Discover_Port_Coquitlam/Events___Attractions/City-wide_Garage_Sale/Online_Registration_Form_5553.htm... there will be free advertising in the local paper & on the city's website. On a real estate topic here is some information released from The Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board Last month’s new listing count was the second highest February total in Greater Vancouver since 1996. At 14,055, the total number of residential property listings on the MLS® increased 12 per cent in February compared to last month and increased 17.9 per cent from this time last year. “Region-wide we’ve seen relative stability in home prices over the last six months, but it’s important to do your homework and consult your REALTOR® because pricing can vary considerably depending on the neighbourhood and property type,” Setticasi said. If you have any questions about any of these topics feel free to contact us either at email@example.com or by phone at 604-942-7300. Have a great snow day everyone!!
