Testimonials

We had been planning a move from Calgary to Nanaimo for retirement purposes for a few years. Upon discovering Love Real Estate Group a relationship began. Over a period of time, with patience, professionalism, good humour and integrity, Love Real Estate Group helped us secure a home that met our needs and our wishes. We are happy to recommend Love Real Estate Group to anyone looking to buy a property in the Nanaimo area.

When I decided to sell my home in Cedar by the Sea last April, I asked Love Real Estate Group to list it. Within a week, I had offers and a purchaser. Next, Love Real Estate Group showed me a number of potential residences that could meet my needs. Within three weeks, I was very interested in buying a townhouse, made an offer and it was accepted. I was very impressed with Love Real Estate Group’s manner in which they dealt with me. Their advice, professionalism and prompt service were especially appreciated. I would highly recommend these Ladies to others if they are seeking either to sell or buy a home. Thanks again Love Real Estate Group.

Nanaimo’s Airport: Things are Looking Up!

Published By: on March 16th, 2011 in Category Community News- Nanaimo

At our Remax sales meeting on Tuesday, Mike Hooper, CEO of the Nanaimo Airport told us that the future is looking good for our local airport. The upgrades to the runway and the navigational equipment has vastly improved the reliability of winter flights arriving at Nanaimo’s airport. We no longer need to travel to Comox, Victoria or Vancouver to begin or end our journeys. Mike expects that within 6 months we will see direct flights from Nanaimo to Bellingham, connecting with great deals available from that airport. He also expects that within 12 months we will be able to fly from Nanaimo to Calgary, again connecting with a great number of great routes without going through Vancouver. Yippee! Many of us are waiting for those charters from Nanaimo to Puerto Vallarta – hey, it could happen!

Bon Voyage!

Purchase Plus Improvements:

Did you know?

You can get include renovation costs in your mortgage to purchase a home. Paying off your renovation costs at mortgage interest rates can make buying a fixer-upper affordable. Talk to your mortgage provider about how to qualify for this option. It works like this:

You estimate the costs of improvements (up to 10% of the value of the house) and the future value of the house with the improvements.

You pay for the improvements out of a line of credit and when they are completed the house is reappraised to confirm that the improvements were made.

Then the remaining funds are released. You pay off your line of credit and the amount is added to your mortgage.
