It’s A Great Time To Buy A Detached Home Now

Every market holds opportunity, the key is to know where to look for it…
Today’s greatest market opportunity resides in purchasing detached homes.

The detached market has been the most impacted both value, and activity wise across the board. The causes of this have been discussed already at great length; but in short they stem from the B20 stress test mortgage rule changes, a lack of consumer confidence, and other government intervention into the real estate marketplace. This has resulted in an excellent time for two real estate moves, first to upgrade from condo, or other strata property (which are still very active), or second to purchase detached as an investment property. The rental market remains strong, and we have had some clients secure amazing deals on detached homes, and rent part of the home or all of the home and get excellent monthly cost coverage, and some are cash flow positive.

We have also helped a number of clients recently upgrade from strata property to detached houses, as the price gap is smaller than it has been in years. (See the graph below- looking at Vancouver East for Example) So the marginal mortgage increase in property price is not a large as it once was (especially when you consider basement rental etc.), in fact it is smaller than it has been in years. When the market confidence returns, as it always does, this gap will grow/spread again, and this opportunity will pass.

We would be happy to meet with you and discuss how you could take advantage of this market opportunity to upgrade from your strata property to a detached house, or to purchase an investment detached house.

Marty’s team moves with impressive speed and efficiency.

Marty’s team moves with impressive speed and efficiency. I never imagined from the time we decided to list our property, that his team could market, stage and sell our house this quickly in a Buyer’s market. While many houses in our neighbourhood have sat on the market for weeks or even months, Marty managed to sell our house in less than a week for a price we are happy with.

Consistently Provided Exceptional Service, Pleasant and Enjoyable To Work With

We are extremely happy with the service that Adam and Team Pospischil have provided and it has led to us purchasing our first apartment in Vancouver!

From the very beginning, Adam has been very thorough and knowledgable and he really understood what we were looking for in an apartment, which helped us find the perfect match.

As first-time home buyers, we entered unfamiliar territory and Adam was able to expertly guide us the whole way.  He consistently provided exceptional service and was pleasant and enjoyable to work with.

In the competitive Vancouver market, Adam helped us to feel very confident that we were buying a home that was right for us and for the right price.

Thank you to Adam, Marty and the team – we would not have such a great place to call our own without you!

SOLD in 1 WEEK  for More Than $600,000 over Ask

We are delighted with our results and highly recommend this professional and courteous team.

In the summer, we approached Marty to give us an evaluation for our home, as we wanted to move to a one story condo.

Marty and Adam presented us with a Sales Review and 38 Point Marketing Plan that were truly impressive. Over the course of the next 6 months, Adam kept us up to date as to the units available that met our needs for a new home, but never pressured us regarding listing our home to buy something new.

It became apparent that in today’s market, we would be making offers on an “all cash” basis with few or no subjects for a new home. We called Team Pospischil to list our home.

Team Pospischil’s well oiled marketing machine went to work and brought 172 people through our property and generated 10 offers.

Our old home sold in ONE week, at a RECORD SETTING PRICE – MORE THAN $600k over our asking price, well above our expectations and a record for the Westside. We have nothing but good things to say about Team Pospischil.

Thank you Team Pospischil!

Ride To Conquer Cancer

Some of us may have been eating cold dinners by candle light after the monsoon that hit Vancouver during the last weekend in August. This was five star dining, considering the conditions under which the 10 members of Team Pospischil / Dexter were slogging it out during the 2015 Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Ride-to-conquer-sept-2015-digital

This year’s 250 km ride from Vancouver to Seattle included downed power lines, fallen trees blocking routes, detours,120 km/h winds, outhouses blowing across pit stops and tent accommodations that weren’t there because they just blew away.

Ride 2015 had its own brand of rewards: a sense of accomplishment like no other, the camaraderie that comes from having completed such a challenge, and of course the satisfaction that we, through your support as our clients, are able to make a difference in the constant battle to beat cancer.

Most importantly Team Pospischil / Dexter and our supporters contributed $35,000 to the total $8.4 million raised this year to help conquer a disease that makes Ride 2015 look like a bike ride in a summer drizzle. Worth every wet & stormy minute.

As a Team Marty Homes client, you automatically contribute to raising funds for cancer research and treatment options all year. Through you, we support this cause at every event and with ongoing donations. Thank you for being part of our team.

We would highly recommend Marty and his team to anyone selling their home.

We would  highly recommend Marty and his team to anyone selling their home.   They are very professional and knowledgeable about real estate business. Marty follows a very detailed and thorough marketing and selling plan for your home.  He fully explained the steps to us, followed the steps and as a result our home sold just as he said it would – quickly and above asking.   We would definitely hire Marty and the team again!
