🤩Another one LEASED! Congratulations to my landlord and tenant clients. This impressive home had so many enquires I wondered if I’d ever be able to find the hours in the day???!!! Leasing is a lot of work , it can be stressful to rent out your personal property but it can be profitable for residential real estate investors in the long term. Finding tenants is easy… finding good long term tenants can be a challenge, so doing your due diligence is key. #karlaknowsquinte #realestate #investmentproperty #leasing #leasingagent #listingagent #buyersagent #downsizing #remaxquinte #karlacares
❄️Congratulations to my First Time Home Buyer❄️ S.B. Has been saving up for awhile. She was a referral from my dear friend @kristamackay.realestate . We’ve been looking at homes since 2021 and we have been beat out by competition twice on our journey. S.B. Didn’t give up on her dream of owning a home in the country and I kept sharing homes with her and watching for opportunities in the area she loved. Even with a home that’s been on the market for a few months, making an offer doesn’t always mean you are alone… we found ourselves in multiples… but…third time can be the charm! #clientlove #karlaknowsquinte #persistance #realestate #buyersagent #listingagent #remaxquinte #makingdreamscometrue #karlacares
Is it time to downsize? upsize? or just plain right size? Let’s discuss your real estate situation and goals. You may not be aware of the options out there for you and your loved ones. Sometimes getting into the market means just starting… it’s not your forever home it’s just the beginning! Sometimes downsizing makes more sense then staying where you are… every situation is different so if you have some questions about the market or more specifically how to improve your quality of life … let’s chat! #karlaknowsquinte #realestate #downsizing #upsizing #rightsizing #realestateagent #realestateinvesting #firsttimehomebuyer #belleville #pec #brighton #quintewest #tweed #madoc #marmora #princeedwardcounty #picton #makingdreamscometrue
🤷‍♀️Question : Who is buying and selling in this market? 🙋🏼‍♀️Answer: My clients are out there looking to buy and the inventory isn’t matching their wants/needs… they have more choices now ! ❗️There are people out there today looking for your home… they are; Downsizers, First Time Buyers, Estate Sale, Couples going through separation, Newly Blended families, Multi-Generational Families, New Comers, Growing Families and Relocations and Investors! ‼️It’s almost impossible to time the market - Wish we had a crystal ball - but I can tell you this; this declining/balancing market will not linger forever and when the market returns to it regular scheduled programming, it will come back with a vengeance with no warning bells. ⏰ I’ve been doing showings 6 days a week with buying clients, consulting with sellers on timing specific to their needs and goals and so many requests for leases! 🏠Buyers have a unique opportunity to have more options to choose from, make offers with conditions, and have more time to think about what they a buying. In 2+ years you’ll be patting yourself on the back for making a move while everyone else was hiding! 🙋🏼‍♀️So, if you think it’s your time to sell!

Hello February 🌹 January was an incredible month! Once again a shout out to my incredible clients!!! Congratulations 🎉 to my sellers who closed, my landlords that found tenants 😎, my tenants that found new places and my buyers who found and received accept offers 🤩 on their new happy places! As we begin February ❄️ I am looking for tenants for two residential leases in Belleville ( one house, one condo) and I have almost 20 buyers looking for properties ( downsizing, first timers, investors) and working on two new listings. The market was certainly different a year ago in February 2022 but I find in 2023 we have even more serious buyers and even motivated sellers. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 If you have a real estate question let’s chat. 🙋🏼‍♀️ #karlaknowsquinte #realestate #belleville #makingdreamscometrue #remaxhustle #remaxquinte #remaxcanada #realtorlife #listingagent #buyersagent

Happy Friday🌟 & congrats to my Buyers! ♥️My clients were a referral and were looking for a particular property to downsize. ✅They weren’t picky on the location but we’re picky on certain aspects of the property. ✅We looked at homes all over and different square footage and different outdoor property attributes. ✅We didn’t want to be in competition so the timing for us when we started back in October was perfect. 🌟🌟🌟We found “the one” last week and made an unconditional offer only to have the seller add a condition on securing a property. 🤞🤞🤞Well today we got the Notice of Fulfillment only after 6 days! We are all ecstatic 🤩🤩🤩 The best feeling in a Friday is a call that the property is sold FIRM !! 🥰Now the packing begins and the dreams become reality! #timetopack #karlaknowsquinte #realestate #sold #soldfirm #makingdreamscometrue #remaxhustle
