The October real estate numbers are here!

As we’re heading towards Winter and starting to think about Christmas celebrations again, it’s time to look back at last month and compare some numbers with last year!

What do these numbers tell us?
We can see a small decrease in sales between both Octobers, namely 1.2%.
At the same time, there is an increase in the days on the market: from 39 to 43 on average. That is an increase of 10.3%.
However, the average sale price of $418K had an increase of 8% compared to last year.
These numbers show a continuing stability in the residential sale market!
As always, any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

“We could not be more thrilled, and would recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for an agent!

From the moment we met with him we felt confident that we were working with a true professional and that he knew this market incredibly well and could rely on his guidance through this process.

He, and his team, especially Jim and Lydia are knowledgeable, reliable and congenial, and we are happy clients for sure!”

Crime Stoppers Golf Tournament 2018; a recap!

On September 18, Crime Stoppers Niagara’s golf tournament took place at the St. Catharines Golf and Country Club.
And what a day it was!
Crime Stoppers does an amazing job; numerous cases are being solved from tips provided to Crime Stoppers.
A great cause to support.
The proceeds raised on September 18th are being used to inform and educate schools, seniors and the general public in Niagara, as well as providing cash rewards to tipsters.


This year was the 2nd annual tournament at the St. Catharines Golf and Country Club and it was great to so many people came to support our Crime Stoppers!

As a fervent supporter of local community care, I care a lot about the good work Crime Stoppers do. I am a numbers guy, so here’s a quick peek at some of the Crime Stoppers statistics:

This organization is doing a great job and I am proud to be able to be a part of that!


The Origin of Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers is based on the simple principle that for every crime committed someone other than the criminal has information that might solve it.
Crime Stoppers is the brainchild of a Canadian-born Albuquerque, New Mexico police detective, Greg MacAleese.
MacAleese was assigned to investigate a 1976 robbery gone afoul that resulted in the senseless shooting of a young part-time employee of a gas station. Frustrated by the lack of a solid investigative lead in this case, MacAleese recognized there were two reasons the public did not communicate information concerning crime to authorities.
These two prohibitions were a valid fear of reprisal and pervasive public apathy. This crime occurred at dusk, in a well-travelled neighbourhood in Albuquerque, leading MacAleese to believe that someone, other than the killers, must have knowledge concerning this homicide.

He reasoned that if he were to offer a cash reward, to overcome the apathy, while guaranteeing anonymity, to protect against reprisal, he might be able to solve this case. He contacted the local media, staged an on-site televised re-enactment of the crime and offered a cash reward from his own pocket for information that led to an arrest of the persons responsible. He set up a secure “tips” line and invited the public, after viewing the re-enactment, to call with information. He received a number of calls and the case was solved.
