Pancakes anyone?

mynextkwraceWow! Looks like the “spring market” started early in Waterloo Region this year. It is no secret that we are currently in a seller’s market – there are a lot more buyers than sellers which creates multiple offer situations on the majority of the homes that are selling in Waterloo Region.

The average price for a single detached home was almost $550,000 in the month of February. This is a substantial increase from over a year ago.

That means the more “needs” you have on your list the harder it is to find a home. Sometimes you might have to get a little creative and think outside the box. When you are looking at houses don’t look at what is there now but what could be if you are willing to do some renovations.


After – New kitchen with additional storage


Before – 1950’s kitchen










When it comes to pancakes I also think it is important to get a little creative. Toppings can make a big difference. What is your favourite pancake mix-in or topping?

    I prefer oatmeal pancakes as they are denser and less likely to dissolve. Need maple syrup. Adding chocolate chips on top is super delish too.
