Friday real estate update – Easter Island snow landscaping

william streetFriday again? This week just flew by. It was both great and tough getting back to work after the long and relaxing holiday. In real estate, about the beginning of the second week of December, things slow down considerably. They probably do in most businesses (except retail I hope). But then, as soon as the kids go back to school, everything ramps up to the regular level again.

Alasdair and I were busy, putting the plan for the year into place and reconnecting with many of our clients. We re-listed our Wellesley house.

I continued posting one real estate rule a day as I continue to edit my book 365 Rules about Real Estate. Although I’ve been through it a few times now, there still are mistakes. The editing process is much much tougher than the writing process. Fortunately, whenever you make a mistake on the internet, you get lots of comments.

apeI spoke with a guy yesterday who published a book. He used a local business – Volumes – for printing hard copies and he recommended them. I bought a book (APE by Guy Kowalski) that claims to have all the information I need. I’ve flipped through it already and it looks pretty definitive.

Speaking of definitive, I found time to profile another school and neighborhood for my series “The definitive guide to Kitchener Waterloo schools, homes and neighbourhoods”. This will eventually become an ebook.

Everyone wants to know what 2013 will be like for real estate. The experts are saying that, like last year, the number of sales will go down while the prices will go up. How can that happen? Click on the 2013 link.

Over on 365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo, I posted a this picture on our facebook page. It went kind of viral on facebook and lead to about 20 new likes. You just never know what’s going to resonate with people. Today I had a post about tobogganing loaded up but I had to do a quick edit as it’s raining today. Are we having another winter like last?

We are doing two open houses this weekend.

229 Pastern Trail, Waterloo: Saturday 2:00-4:00pm

1045 Queen’s Bush Road, Wesley, Sunday 2:00-4:00pm
