NEW NORDSTRUM RACK STORE COMING TO WILLOWBROOK MALL IN APRIL

After the closure of the Sears store in Willowbrook Mall, the building that it occupied has remained empty for a few years. With the revamp of much of the Langley Willowbrook Mall, there has been a lot of speculation as to what kind of business would take the place of the iconic Sears.

The wait is now over as it has been revealed that a new Nordstrum Rack store is now coming to Langley. Set to open on April 23rd 2020, the 30,000 sq. ft. store will be selling “apparel, accessories and shoes for the whole family, from many of the top brands sold at Nordstrom stores at everyday savings of up to 70 percent off”.

Not only will this make a great addition to Langley and Willowbrook but the opening of the store is creating many job opportunities, anything from Department Managers to Sales Associates.

B.C. SET TO RELAX THE RULES ON SECONDARY RESIDENCES ON ALR

In 2019 the BC Government bought in legislation to limit the size of residences on farm land to halt the building of so-called “Mega Mansions’ Another part of this legislation was the necessity for farmers to get permission from the Agricultural Land Commission to build secondary residences on their land.

The changes propose that secondary residences be allowed on ALR land but they cannot be more than 1000 sq ft. However, there would be more flexibility for use including being able to use the secondary home as rental accommodation. This is great news for farmers!

It is proposed that the maximum size of primary residences will remain at 5,400 but secondary residences will no longer have to be mobile or manufactured homes.

INVENTORY IS LOW – IF YOU ARE THINKING OF LISTING – GET AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION AND DO IT NOW!

The end of 2019 showed no let up in Real Estate sales and the market was extremely strong! We are in what is considered a ‘Sellers Market’** with some homes going into multiple offers due to low inventory and strong demand from buyers.

**For example, the inventory for Langley Condos was down 30% from November to December 2019 but sale price was up 1%. Sales price per sq ft was up 8%.

Inventory for Langley detached homes was down 35% compared to November and sales prices remained unchanged.

Don’t wait for the ‘Spring Market’! In this sellers market, it pays to get ahead of the competition! If you are considering selling your home in Langley, Cloverdale or in the Fraser Valley, let the Garry Voigt Real Estate Team help.
