"It's like déjà vu all over again."

Both Spring Training for baseball and the Spring Market for Real Estate have started!

It's spring time which for me, is the start of spring training for the baseball.  I was pondering baseball spring training and realized that there are similarities between baseballl spring training and the spring real estate market.

With both, comes a flurry of activity as teams (people) prepare for their next season (home).

What you need is a Manager (Agent) to help you get the most out of your team.  Your Manager (Agent) will select your starting pitcher (properties to see) and will manage the game (home buying process) all the way to bringing in the Closer (firm contract).  In between, they'll make the in-game adjustments due to their knowledge and tools to make it as stress-less as possible.

Yogi Berra once said "It's like déjà vu all over again."

With the present market in Calgary that could definitely be said.  The statistical indicators in my Market Study 2013 show that we are in a similar market to 2006/2007.  Presently there is very little inventory available and we have seen an increase in Buyers.  If the property is listed in the correct price range and is clean it is selling quickly and quite often with competitive offers.

To get the Win, you need to find the right Manager!
