Saturday, November 20, 2010 - Timing to Sell

I just returned from having breakfast with a couple whose friend just removed their property from a Commfree listing as it was the "wrong season" to sell. It had been listed for 90 days with no activity. Amazing how myths are taken as truth.

Consumers are doing an increasing amount of due diligence prior to purchasing, increasingly relying upon proven databases and competitive ... Full Article...

Thursday, November 18, 2010 - Perspective

I recently placed a couple in a very nice house that had been on the market for an extended time.  Apparently the combination of pine covered lower walls and orange colored upper walls turned prospective buyers away.  My couple realized what could be simply achieved using relatively inexpensive paint and a few hours of labor.  The place looks great - and they got a super deal!

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 - Market Trend

Is the market shifting?  In October, St. Albert saw a month/month increase in the median price of single family detached homes of ~12.8%.  Compared to the market of October of 2009, the year/year increase was still a respectful ~5.6%.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 - Market Pricing

The value of a property is directly related to both the Buyer's desire and the market conditions.  So, a property either sells quickly when the desire, the market and the asking price are close -- or a property sits when they are not.  While many factors influence the asking price, it is the percieved value that will set the purchase price.

Saturday, November 13, 2010 - Market Conditions

Today's market conditions are indeed varied.  Entry level single family homes appear to be increasing in value -- high rise condo's in a holding pattern - and many townhouse complexes still reducing slightly.  So what to do?  One can never state we are at the bottom or top of a cycle -- and  making purchase decision based on this finite point is a quesstimate at best.  However if you view the market in quartiles, you should be reasaonablyu accurate with your result.  Purchasing while in the ...
