Open kitchen designs are great for opening up the kitchen area and creating more space for food preparation and socialization. When designed correctly, they can maximize your capacity for efficiency, storage and entertainment. Take a look at what to look for in an open kitchen design if you’re thinking about remodeling your own home or when you’re looking at Fleetwood Real Estate homes.

Standing Walls

If you’re considering turning your current kitchen into an open kitchen, take note of how many standing walls in and around your kitchen you are able to remove. Certain walls are load-bearing, which means that you need to leave those standing in order to support your home. So to a certain extent, you home may make the decision for you about how open your new kitchen can be.

Take a look at your remaining internal walls that are not load-bearing, and decide just how open you want your kitchen to be. Single-wall open kitchens are common, so don’t hesitate to knock them...

Dumbfounded by what she saw on her yearly property valuation assessment, Margo Wood of South Surrey vowed to appeal the assessment for the first time ever. A rental property she owns in White Rock jumped 70 per cent in value — from $614,600 at the beginning of 2016 to $1,041,800 now.

Facing a bigger tax burden and other pressures associated with an inflating home value, Wood decided to fight back.

“I’m going to appeal it. It’s such a ridiculous increase.”

Wood is not alone in Surrey, where property values increased 36 percent on average according to Surrey-White Rock’s MLA, Gordon Hogg. The jump has no doubt startled many owners of Fleetwood real estate, and it could affect many people’s decision to buy or sell in the area for many reasons.

Taking Surrey’s Temperature at the Wrong Time?

Margo Wood’s hefty assessment increase is a common story being told in the Fraser Valley area. Assessors sent out early warnings to...

Even with the foreign buyer tax in place, housing prices in Metro Vancouver on average remain quite high and are getting higher. Simply put, housing units in metro Vancouver are in great demand but short supply.

But the same tax that aims to make properties more expensive to foreign investors is now helping make homes more accessible to first-time buyers. According to CTV News in Surrey, qualifying buyers will be able to secure 25 year loans matching the owner’s down payment funds up to $37,500. These loans will be payment-free and interest-free for the first five years.

This program comes as ecstatic news for those entering the Fleetwood real estate market for the first time and looking for a way to stretch their current savings further.

How B.C.’s First-Time Homebuyer Loans Work

The interesting thing about B.C.’s loan program is that it applies to very specific situations. While some may see these limitations as a burden, it actually works out to benefit a certain...
