The Real Estate market in Regina this Spring has been an interesting one to say the least! Buyers are somewhat overwhelmed at the choice of houses for sale in Regina and are having a hard time deciding on whether they should write an offer on this house or that house or worse yet... wait for a "better" one! As I write this there are 1690 homes under contract on the MLS. Regina Real Estate agents have their work cut out for them that's for sure!

Lets be honest here, you haven't done that since November right before it got cold enough to put up the Christmas lights. Make sure that the grade around the house is allowing the water to run away from the

The days are getting longer and the sun has a bit of heat in it. That can only mean that Spring is around the corner. I know we still might see some more snow and it still might hit minus "holy crap" but there is no denying that we are on the downhill side of Winter. 

 I don't mind saying, and I don't think I'm alone in this, Spring is my favorite time of year! Who doesn't like the weather warming up, the snow melting and having mud up the ying yang? Maybe its because as we get older we like Winter less and less each year so the expectations of Spring are pretty low, or maybe its because coming from the farm, Spring was a time to shift gears from prepping and planning to implementation. Whatever the reason is I love it!

 I hope you all came out of

Are you thinking about upgrading to a bigger or better home? Here are a few suggestions from the Clark Cullen Group. 

  1. Have one of our top team members come and evaluate your property to give you a current market value as well as advise you on any preparations that might need to be done prior to listing your home.
