Less than 12 hours on the Market and dealing with an offer

July 6th, 2014
Nothing says Stampede like buying a house, have a few pops, put on your Jeans and buy a House, works for me.

Sure beats flooding I suppose.

April 27th, 2014
It is a SELLERS Market for sure. Across the board at virtually every price point now, it is clearly a market leaning to the sellers.

Why are Deposits so important in Real Estate Transactions?

March 27th, 2014
I remember about 15 years ago writing a deposit cheque for all of $1000.00 buying a home in Winnipeg, that was rich.  Some realtors will tell you that as long as there is 'consideration', the fancy term for a deposit, or some form of legal tender in and around the contract then you can have a contract.  While relatively true, nobody in their right mind will accept a deposit on a HOME in Calga ...

Writing Competing Offers in Calgary

February 16th, 2014

If you have a realtor without one, or the ability to really tell a buyer what aa place is really worth, that doesn't just include going higher and higher in price point, then re-think your options. I don't lose out on a lot of them, but not out of dumb luck. For those realtors who weren't practicing real es ...
