Focus on Neighbourhood Stats for 26 Jarlan Terrace!
I have disproven that old expression “Lies….damned lies….and statistics!” I so love problem-solving. Recently, when a listing of ours, 26 Jarlan Crescent that has a private backyard with no houses behind looking down into it but that happens to back onto Katimivik Road, had a comment about the location. This was when I decided, after the current owners expressed total disbelief that someone would see it as a negative, to pull the stats on how long people backing onto Katimivik choseto live there. Barb, master researcher, went through city records and researched how long people stayed in their houses when they moved onto the streets of Jarlan, Dorey and McLaughlin that all back onto Katimavik Road. It was amazing. Check this out:
Jarlan Terrace Dorey Court McLaughlin Crescent
### – 18 years ### – 33 years ### – 10 years
### – 29 years ### – 23 years ### – 30 years
### – 27 years ### – 22 years ### – 19 years
### – 14 years ### – 29 years ### – 12 years
It appears that when people move into such a spot, they simply do not move until something necessitates that they do. The bottom line is also that because they stay in that location for a long time, their investment appreciation is that much more. We also researched to see if their houses had come on the market and then just taken off without selling. Not the case….even once! We shared these wonderful statistics with other realtors and immediately the view of the property’s location changed. Showings increased. Interested parties appeared. SO……my thoughts on statistics…….I LOVE them!!!! (sometimes)
