Here’s some good news to brighten your day!  We saw prime rates drop weeks ago and now the mortgage rates are dropping to an all-time low!!!  National is now pushing a  5-year fixed rate for a CMHC/Genworth insured mortgage at 2.25%!  Yes, you’re reading this correctly.   It’s unprecedented since the 1920’s.  Just imagine five years locked in at 2.25.  All Nicholas and I can say is “Wow”!  With so much bad news this last few months I thought it’s the perfect time to share some good news to brighten your spirits.

So if you’re like the rest of us and have been climbing the walls with ‘self-isolation’ and spending so much time at home, maybe you’ve found that you need something different.  With these low rates, this is the time!  So do you need a larger house for your busy  family or a smaller house since you’re now empty nesters with a lot of empty space and want to cut down on monthly carrying costs.? Maybe you’ve realized in the last few months that you really need a bigger yard for the kids and your four-legged fur babies to play in?  Since it looks like travel is going to be either non-existent for a while or at least very challenging maybe a vacation cottage/weekend get-away is looking very appealing right now.? It’s amazing how this last few months has really brought what is truly important in our lives to the forefront and many of us want to make changes for the better as we come out of isolation, spending more quality time with our friends and family.  If changes in your life include a different property for any reason, call Mama and Charlie.  They know the market and are both experienced negotiators who’ll put your needs first to help you find that perfect place that you’ll call home!  If you have pet be assured that Mama and Charlie consult with me as the company mascot to be sure that the four-legged criteria is included in their search!  If you wish to sell, they should be your first call.  Call, text or message, they’re here to help and they’re the most discrete Realtors you’ll ever meet.  Mums the word here.

I had my first swim of the year on Sunday in a private lake and let me tell you it felt sooo good!!!  Mama thought it would be too cold but with my double Newfoundland coat, I didn’t feel a thing.  Nicholas thought I was crazy.  The little guy with his soft silky coat needs the warmer water of summer to enjoy a good swim.  Papa said I should join the polar bear club.  I could very easily!

  Buddy’s first swim of the year!

Congratulations to our sellers of 75 Kingshurst Lane,  Rothesay whose house closed yesterday.  This gorgeous waterfront property is right up my alley with an acre of private land, on the end of a cul de sac, a nice riverfront beach and awesome water view.  Mama would never get me out of the water if I had a place like this!!!  MLS#NB036981, offered at  $985,000.  To the buyers I also say “congrats”, you’ve got your self, one beautiful property!  You’ll soon discover that nothing is nicer than waterfront in New Brunswick in the summer.  Enjoy!

75 Kingshurst is sold!  Right in the heart of Rothesay!

Wishing you all a great weekend, stay home and stay safe!  I know it’s getting tedious but we’ve done a great job New Brunswick so hang in there.  We’ll take some walks and fresh air (doctors say it’s important for our physical and mental health!)

Your pal,
