#POMOLIFE: EPISODE 4 – U-BICYCLE TOUR THROUGH NEWPORT

PORT MOODY! THE U-BICYCLE TOUR… DOES MONICA SURVIVE THE SKATE PARK?  FIND OUT BELOW!

We have passed by these U-bicycle stations all over Port Moody and finally decided to give it a go! Quick app download and we were on our way. Yes, we wore our helmets #safteyfirst!

Port Moody is surprisingly rideable, even for someone that hasn’t ridden in a hot minute. Guys, if you haven’t tried this you are missing out. We made it to Moody Ales from Newport Village in 8 minutes on our “Lunch Break”!

 

 

Spring 2019 Market Update

Surprise surprise… It’s slow. In terms of units sold, statistically the month of March was the slowest it’s been in 33 years! However, don’t let the media headlines fool you, it’s not that bad for all property types. It may be a ‘Buyers Market’, particularly for luxury homes, fixer uppers and land value, but many entry level homes, condos and desirable areas are experiencing more of a ‘Balanced Market’, we have even experienced a few bidding wars. Check out this video to learn more about our thoughts on the 2019 Spring Market.
