A quick note from Rochelle: I am sure by now most of you have had enough of smoke-filled skies. I guess it’s time we take heed and quit polluting our Earth or we are headed for many years of drought, heat, and flames. Our Real Estate Market is still very active, but I have noticed a bit of hesitation, not sure if it’s the fires or just a pause so people can catch their breath. Don’t get me rong; w are still seeing many multiple offers and sold prices above list price, but we are also seeing some reductions. Our beautiful little area has seen quite the influx of people over the last couple of years with the biggest group coming from the lower mainland. (See the graph below) I w n to send a SHOUT OUT to ev ryone that is working on the front lines fighting fires and to all of you that are working silently behind the scenes. Thank y u from the bottom of my heart, we are grateful you are protecting our communities.

TIPSFORORGANIZINGYOURKID’SBEDROOM It isn’t always easy to keep a kid’s room clean. Sometimes it feels like it’s going to overflow with stuffed animals, toys and artwork. But with a few smart organizational solutions you can help your child keep their room neat and tidy – without making them get rid of all their toys! First, invest in some trays with a tall lip around the edge. Unlike baskets, trays allow kids to still see their stuff, but they keep things contained. Trays are great for smaller items like lego, blocks and art supplies. Next, install picture shelves along the walls, which can be used for framed artwork as well as to display favourite books. It also makes the books easy to access for when the mood to read strikes. Another great idea is to get a few rolling carts. Rolling carts have become quite popular for those who work from home because they’re so easy to move. Your kid may not have a job – yet, but they most likely have crafty things that would fit perfectly in a cart. Another fun idea from the realm of office work – a bulletin board. Get a corkboard and wrap it in colourful fabric, then pin up photos and other treasures your kid loves. Last up, don’t just install a coat hook on the back of their bedroom door. Instead, get hooks in fun shapes and colours and install them at different heights across one of the bedroom walls. Your child can hang up their sweaters, bags, dress-up clothes – and anything else they like! I am including this graph as I am always asked the question “Where are all these people coming from?” Graph provided by o r local Real Estate Board: As ociation of Interior Realtors.
