calgary: Sales activity on the rise throughout the Calgary region - 03/01/12 07:57 PM
Thanks to CREB for the following information.
Sales activity on the rise throughout the Calgary region
Improved activity in the last week of the month boosted city sales

calgary: What?!? More money down for a deposit? No more 30 year terms? - 02/29/12 03:34 PM
CRAZY!
First time home buyers, if you are thinking about buying a home in Calgary Alberta, you may want to pick up the pace. I just got word that amount down may be changing from 5% to 10% (currently there are still some cash back / Zero downs available – but they may be going as well), and the 30 year terms may be gone too.  They are talking about going back to the 25 year terms.
This is going to hurt our market! This will take a lot of the first time buyers out of the market completely. Which will … (1 comments)

calgary: Questions to ask your REALTOR? - 06/22/11 01:17 PM
Have you ever wondered:
"I am thinking about buying or selling real estate, but I am really not sure where to start."
"How do I find a REALTOR?"
"Should I talk to more than one REALTOR, and if so, what should I be asking them?"
"What things do I need to know about real estate?"
These are questions that most buyers and sellers have, but don't know how to get good educated answers for their questions.
Here are some facts!
Fact: most buyers and sellers will use the first REALTOR they meet, but that can be scary!
Fact: most buyers and … (3 comments)

calgary: Interview Questions to ask your REALTOR - 04/11/11 02:47 PM

Interview Questions to ask your REALTOR®
Have you ever thought about interviewing a REALTOR® before? Most people don’t, or don’t know what to ask. Even just sitting down with a few to see who you feel most comfortable with is better than not doing anything at all. There have been a number of times, where I have gone into meet new buyers (I call it a “meet and greet”), and there are a few comments I hear again and again…
-          Tania, I was working  with another agent, but I don’t want to work with them anymore. I want to work with … (0 comments)

calgary: Accredited Buyer Representative ABR®, why it matters? - 04/11/11 01:35 PM

Accredited Buyer Representative ABR®, why it matters?
We have seen many changes over the past few years in terms of rules, regulations, contracts, and representation. It is still not uncommon for REALTOR’s® to represent both the buyer and seller. There was a time when the Buyers had no representation, and the Sellers had it all. Talk about buyer beware! What we are seeing now, is that the pendulum is swinging to the other side, where the Sellers are wanting less representation and the Buyers want more.
While agents still can represent both parties, it is illegal for this to take … (1 comments)

calgary: SRES - Seniors Real Estate Specialist - 04/05/11 05:04 PM

 
SRES Designation
I have recently completed another Designation! SRES - Seniors Real Estate Specialist, and I am really excited about this one as well. I have some homework and research ahead of me, to get myself updated with the current Social Services Agency's in Calgary (back to my social work roots.) The reality is that sometimes it is not in the best interest of the potential seller to sell... that's where I can really help! As I will always do what is best for the client! I find that this designation, ties really well into my other designations, ABR - … (1 comments)

calgary: Great info about Mortgage rates! Thanks Dave. - 12/14/10 11:49 PM
Good morning Tania,
 
As you know I follow both the Bank Of Canada overnight rate, and the Canadian Bond rates very closely, in an effort to best predict what rates will be doing in the near future. This can be useful for clients in making decisions pertinent to both buying or selling a home. My research has indicated a couple things over the last few weeks.
 
First, the Bank Of Canada did not make any changes to the overnight or Key rate, also known as prime. They are still at 1%, and most lenders will then add on 2% … (0 comments)

calgary: Stick to what you know... - 09/23/10 06:24 PM

Ok, so I go take this course today, and it sucked! So much to the point that I did ask for my money back. So, what was the course about you ask. Listing and selling country residential properties. And why did I not like the course, you ask.
I went into the course, with very little experience in that area, and wanted to increase my knowledge base. I am a firm believer in education and information. 
Now you need to know that I took a similar course about 3 years ago, and walk out of there feeling like I didn't … (0 comments)
