Here at Roberto’s Bungalows in San Pancho we get a wide variety of guests and it seems like many of them want to move here. The visitors from Canada seem to want to talk about it the most.
I’ve been in Real Estate with Coldwell Banker for about 15 years in the United States and have done referrals to sell and buy all over. I’m not real familiar with the Real estate market way up in Canada, but we went up there in Sept. Of 2013 to look around. I really enjoyed the layout of the country right around the Vancouver area. We went in September when the weather was perfect and there was no snow! We did hear talk of the people who lived up in North Country by Yellow Knife and how they were all getting ready for the Iditarod!
Last week we had a couple guests arrive and one of guests (Noelene) told me she had just put in an offer on a home built in 1995 in the North Country. She was real excited and showed me a picture of the home which was buried a few feet deep in the snow. What struck me as a bit strange was that it was located in a town called Yellow Knife. Yellow Knife is far enough away to be just about on another planet. (The Twilight Zone) The next thing that struck me was the price of the mobile home…. About 320,000….. Yup I said mobile home. What? Did I say 320,000? Yup that was it. Almost $260.00 per square foot.
We just sold one in sunny Benicia, California in the most sought after area in the San Francisco Bay Area that was 1,500 sq ft in a beautiful park with a pool and spa area with no snow for $125,000 and I thought that was really high and it had been recently remodeled.
The last thing that got my attention was the agents name….. …..Rod Sterling… Which I thought was a great name for the Real Estate agents business If your buyers or sellers watched TV From 1959-1964. I think I would change it to Rod Stewart and I think he would get a lot more business and a lot more chicks.
Personally I think it’s time to trade in the snow for some warm sand. If you are thinking about buying something down here in Mexico…… Call me, or just come visit.
