Spring has arrived and summer is fast approaching with the hot sun beating down along with clear skies. Everyone enjoys a warm sun, but sometimes the sun can become too warm and people look forward to going inside a building with blasting AC. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or an experienced one, you should know by now that your bills always seem to rise rapidly when that AC is turned on. Here are a few ways to help cut down that price and keep your house cool.

 

Awnings


For most houses, awnings aren’t really at the top of a person’s list to check to see if they can help with cooling down the house, but you should definitely take a peek outside and see what you are working with. Installing awnings over a south facing window can decrease the solar heat gain by almost half, while installing awnings on the west facing windows can decrease the solar heat gain almost by 75%.


Curtains


Almost everyone knows that by closing the curtains, the house becomes cooler as the sun and heat are blocked out by them, as solar heat gain can be decreased to close to 33%. If you close your curtains, but still notice that it’s still hotter inside then it is outside, check the weave of your curtains. Heavy closed weaved fabric curtains, such as velvet or broadcloth, are the best bet for effectively blocking out the sun.


Interior Shutters


If you have a quirky sense of design for your home, try installing interior shutters to your windows. Wood shutters would work best in blocking off the sun’s rays and cooling the house. They also add a little extra something to the room design that makes the room pop.

Timing is everything for property investment, entering at the right time in the market will always give an important effect on the long term success of your investment. Here are 9 signs that will help you decide if now is the time to start searching.

 

1. Financially Sound.

 

Saving enough for a down payment, creating an emergency fund, knowing that there might be maintenance expenses, as well as having a good credit history are all needed before you start to search for your investment property.

 

2. Long Term Goals

 

You know the purpose of your investment and are willing to be adaptable to any changing circumstances, such as market needs and new development of technology.

 

3. Research

 

You have completed your own research on the neighborhood you wish your future property to be on. You now know what schools are in or around the neighborhood, where all the bus stops are located and you can easily predict the next homebuyer’s needs.

 

4. Economy is Stable

 

The area you have chosen is financially stable, with promising economic trends and surging equities.

 

5. Policies

 

You have read about the country’s policies for all real estate, and that they promote and encourage a positive place and drive to help further economic growth. Make sure that the tax policy is positive for the homeowners, and that global innovation index is rising.

 

6. Growth

 

The city is planning on growth in the city and are building in anticipation of it, such as building another bridge, increasing road size, and renovating or creating more buildings.

 

7. Sustainable Development

 

The increase in value for sustainable property is growing as more and more people head towards wanting to maintain a sustainable living with eco-friendly homes.

 

8. Location Interest

 

It’s always at the top of the search engine for places to go, plus many job seekers could be looking in that area for a house that can be rented. Also keep in mind of any international students that could be looking for a place to call home during the school year.

 

9. Real Estate Agent

 

If you are from overseas or looking for an investment in a different city, it is crucial that you find a fantastic realtor for that area that knows what they are talking about. This will help to make your decision easier and find a great choice at a reasonable price.

Home Sales Down So Far in 2017

Total home sales in Saskatoon year to date saw a 5% decrease with a total of 1,037 units changing hands. The month of April was also notably quiet with a total of 315 sales, a 16% decrease from 2016. Listing activity is also down by 4% compared to last year with a total of 3,038 new listings introduced to the market so far this year. Listing activity for April was also lower by 10% compared to April of 2016. Inventory levels remain quite high with a total of 1,975 active listings at the end of April. This is considerably higher than the five-year average of 1,700 units. For the last three years, there has been in excess of 1,900 homes available for sale at the end of April. It would be ideal to have around 1,500 units available for sale at this time of year. “Higher inventory levels are a great opportunity for buyers for selection and a reasonable purchase price,” says Jason Yochim, CEO of the Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS® “The market will eventually shift and those who waited will end up with less selection and more competition for the home they offer on” he adds. 

Higher inventory levels typically mean lower prices, however, for homes priced over $600,000, there has been an increase in the number of sales which sustains the average price even with fewer sales. Even though the average price remains unchanged year over year, the median price has decreased by 1.9%. So far in 2017, there is a 65% increase in homes that sold over $600,000 with a total of 93 sales compared to 56 in 2016. In April alone there were 19 sales over $650,000 compared to just 9 last April, three of the sales were in excess of $1M. Comparatively, there is a notable decrease in homes selling below $500,000. By the end of April 2016 there was a total of 438 home sales, so far this year there are only 358. Year to date the sale of single-detached properties declined by 11% while the number of multi-family unit sales increased by 4%. 

The sales to listing ratio of 37% also confirm that we are firmly in a buyer’s market. This is the lowest it has been for the month of April in over 5 years. At the current rate of sales, it would take over six months to liquidate the existing number of homes that are for sale, the five-year average for months of inventory is 4.5 months. Currently, it takes about 50 days for a home to sell in Saskatoon, just slightly longer than the 46 days of a year ago. Homes that are selling continue to realize sale prices in excess of 97% of the asking price. This underscores the importance of proper pricing in a buyers market. “A buyers market is not one for speculative selling” cautions Yochim. “Today's consumers are very well informed and with many homes to choose from are not afraid to move on if the seller is unwilling to respond to an offer at market value” he adds. 

Activity in the markets surrounding Saskatoon continues to experience a decline in both sales and listing activity. A total of 249 sales at the end of April is a 14% decrease from 2016. The number of homes listed for sale for the first four months of 2017 is down by 13%. The sales to listing ratio for this market is 28% while the time it takes the average house to sell is two months. Homes are realizing sale prices of 94% of the asking price. The number of active listings for the area surrounding Saskatoon, which includes the cities of Warman and Martensville, was down 15% with 979 available properties.
