Vancouver Island Real Estate Board hosts its inaugural Buyers and Sellers Home Fair, a consumer-focused event for exhibitors to engage with consumers to learn about real estate.
The event, which takes place April 29 at Beban Park social centre, includes four speakers who will share their knowledge and expertise on mortgages, assessments, secondary suites and the overall housing market.
Tony Joe, a 25-year real estate veteran and president of the Victoria Real Estate Board, will help demystify the real estate transaction during his talk, entitled Everything You Wanted to Know About Real Estate (But Were Afraid to Ask).
Maurice Primeau, a senior appraiser with B.C. Assessment, will deliver a talk on Assessments 101, covering how properties are valued, how B.C. Assessment uses that information for tax-base purposes, assessment accuracy and the appeal process.
Mike Bates, from the City of Nanaimo, will present on secondary suites, covering rental revenue, accommodation for a relative and increasing the home’s value.
The final speaker is B.C. Real Estate Association chief economist Cameron Muir, who will discuss what consumers can expect from the housing market in 2017.
Attendees will also have access to mini-seminars, covering a broad range of real-estate topics.
