The lower mainland's longest running blanket drive is in full swing as we head into some colder weather. Yes, the Vancouver Real Estate Board is mobilising its members and friends to collect blankets, warm coats, hats, socks and gloves - anything to help keep out the chill for those living mostly outside. Please bring all the items you can spare to our Remax Sabre office - this is the last week that we are collecting.

Interest rates are inching upwards - noticeably in the variables, so buyers are starting to lock into a 5 year term - on average at 2.74%. Soooo...if you are actively house hunting, secure today's rate on a future purchase, so that you are safe should the rates continue to increase. The posted rate at financial institutions is considerably higher than the average referenced above - partner up with a mortgage broker so that you are truly in the mortgage loop with the beneficial rate!

Only 24 more shopping days before Christmas and, as it says on my favorite cocktail napkin this season - "he sees you when you're drinking". Leave the car at home! Whatever the season tis, we've got you covered.

Have a great week.

Sheila and Michelle
