Weekly Blend: November 8, 2013

Each week, the Weekly Blend will feature interesting links to real estate news, tidbits or topics of interest you can enjoy with your favourite cup of coffee. It may even become a great conversation starter at your next client meeting. Happy reading!

Here are my weekly picks:

Need some help with a down payment? You might want to speak with Mom & Dad the homebuyer.

Staring at $617,800, these Vancouver homes are considered to be a bargain.

It’s a ten-foot cube that could change the world.

What percentages of homebuyers use the internet to search for homes? A recent NAR survey charts it at 92 per cent.

Another NAR survey showed that mixed-use and walkable cities are what American homebuyers are looking for.

Jonathan Baker, our former Speech Writer, contributed to the development of speeches, advertisements, and communications to our membership. Our staff knew him as the go-to guy at 200 Catherine for some comic relief. Prior to joining CREA, Jon worked in the radio industry in Ottawa. If you meet Jon, be sure to ask him to tell you about his encounters with many famous musicians while volunteering at a local music festival for more than 10 years.
