So What Stopping You?

So what stopping you from buying a home?




Fear of the future?

Yes sales are down from the past two years and yes the housing market is not looking good in the news. I have a different opinion. If I was looking to buy a home when would be the best time to do so? When is the ideal time to buy a home?

In real estate we have 3 periods:

1. Buyers markets - Very little selling with lots of choice

2. Sellers Markets - Very little choice and selling quick

3. Balanced Market - Most houses are selling in an ordinary amount of time

I believe we  are in the best period to buy your home, a buyers market has been in effect in Central Alberta for about a year now. Prices have come down since the peak of 2007-08 and sellers expectations have been corrected. You can now buy a half duplex for under 200K when they were selling for 230-250K 2 years ago. You can buy a 1200SF bilevel with a garage fo 340-350K when they sold for 380-410K not that long ago.

Most of the people I have been dealng ith this summer have been young families that are selling their first homes and buying something bigger and families moving into our area. I see them picking up homes that are cleaner and in better repair than homes that sold for 20-40K more two years ago.

So whats stopping you?

Buying a home whether its your first or fifth is scary. Nobody wants to make a mistake. Nobody wants to pay more than they should.

Thats where I can help, I will show you your options and give you my advice on each house. Your first step is deciding to call and set up an appointment to meet. At that meeting I will show you whats available, you tell me your wants and needs and together we find you the right home.
