No one can pinpoint a precise market number.
Run for the hills If a broker represents that they know exactly what your property is worth.
Doubly so if a commercial real estate broker tours you through property and does not point out the defects, as well as the features.
So who can you trust?
The pandemic is sure to have put a damper on the pop-up Halloween store phenomena of the last few years.
A Value Village survey in 2018 revealed that 40 per cent of customers stated Halloween is their favourite holiday; second only to Christmas, it would seem, when it comes to seasonal spending.
So it should come as no surprise that the Retail Council of Canada is reporting that eight out of ten Canadians still intend to celebrate Halloween this year despite Covid-19 concerns.
We had a pretty typical summer in Saskatchewan this year amid atypical times.
We got just enough heat in July to start complaining about it and a few outdoor pools opened despite the pandemic.
When I was a kid, waterslides were the staple of a good time for summer fun.
Those seem reserved for hotels now as outdoor waterslide parks seem to have gone the way of the dinosaur, but why?
What’s my definition of a digital detox? To me it means no screen time.
Screens include my computers, laptop, smart phone and televisions. I happened to grow up before the video game craze so that one’s not on my list.
Studies show that much of society today is addicted to digital. I could very well be included in that group!
I’ve experimented with withdrawing from use of electronics for a day in the past; I decided to make it a once a week, permanent habit early this year.
Most of us have never experienced a financial maelstrom of this magnitude, in our business careers.
It’s a stressful time for many property and business owners; it’s difficult for most of us to forecast with any confidence what our sales volume for the next six months will be.
There is a good chance you may encounter some tense conversations with clients or associates who are understandably anxious about their current state of affairs.
There are times in life where I’ve failed or hit the wall. In those moments, it’s easy to become engulfed with negativity.
However, reflecting objectively on those grim times, they’ve consistently happened for a reason.
Christmas is a time to reflect and appreciate all the good
things that happened over the past year.
Commercial real estate agents are no different.
And as such, I submit to you the greatest gifts tenants,
landlords, buyers and sellers gave me in 2019.
I was privileged to be invited along on yet another great ICR sales adventure, with the company treating us to a trip to Nashville this past month!
Nashville, Tennessee is known best by its nickname of Music City
as the home of country music.
According to a study completed through Belmont University, the
City is home to over 80 record labels, 130 music publishers, 180 recording
studios, 27 entertainment publications and estimated 5,000 working union
Belmont estimated in 2006 that the music industry, through tourism
as well as direct and indirect industry spending contributed $6.38 billion to the
Quite the economy indeed, when you consider the first citizen to
inhabit Nashville had a wildly different background from music.
I started writing my blog to increase my social media footprint. While it has helped, it’s no longer my purpose.
Rather, I now enjoy expressing my thoughts on issues that pop up in my week. It’s usually something that has happened that inspires me to write about a topic…here’s what’s on my mind.
I want to work with a professional, whether it may be financial, medical or technical, that’s prepared to, at times, tell me what I need to hear.
If I am working with an individual or firm that is always selling me and/or agreeing with my line of thinking, I’m inclined to move on.
Too sick for work can be a subjective term.
I must admit I’ve pushed the limits and found myself exiled
from the office on more than one occasion for coming to work when I should
legitimately be at home.
I would say my average yearly sick days would even out
around 3 or 4 maybe.
Which puts me well below recent statistics that say
government employees are averaging in at 12.2 days lost per year.
