What is your Calgary Alberta Canada Home Worth Today?What is your house worth today?

Calgary Alberta Home Values & Appraisals.

A Calgary House Appraisal is a snapshot in time that looks at all currently available sales data on similar homes. Location and condition are the next most important factors in assessing a home's value.

Ask three real estate agents in Calgary for their opinion of the value of your house and you will get three different answers. 

Ask your Calgary bank or mortgage company or your insurance company and you should have three more estimates of the valuation of your home.

Ask your friends and neighbors opinions and you will get even more assessment values.

We offer free Smile, no-obligation Current Market Analysis of any property in Calgary.

Many of our clients are signed up for an annual property appraisal report sent out on the day of their choice. Feel free to ask for your annual CMA report. 403 831 0842 Jerry

How long were you a Willing Qualified Buyer until you bought your present home?

How long have you been out of the real estate market since buying your home?

The truth is Willing Qualified Calgary Home Buyers in today's market are;

  1. Harder to find
  2. Have lots of choices
  3. Are not in the market very long
  4. Are looking for a great house at a great price
  5. Not looking at over market value priced properties
  6. Not looking at advertising from Realtors advertising Realtors

The truth is Willing Qualified Calgary Home Buyers Compare Prices Only!

While they look at all the other properties in their Buying Power target range.

The truth is Willing Qualified Calgary Home Buyers are Shoppers!

Buyers are out going through homes and comparing what you have to offer compared to all other options including doing nothing. Right now, in Calgary Alberta Canada, there are lots of active listings. Every property is jumping up and down, shouting loud and waving their arms trying to get the attention of the few Willing Qualified Buyers.

The odds of selling are stacked against all properties that are not priced competitively.

Testing the market is a complete waste of time. Those days are gone for the foreseeable future.

Willing Qualified Buyers first step is to search for homes MLS® Listed by Price.

The next step is to browse the pictures.

Then explore the details and history of only the short list of properties meeting their criteria.

Next Willing Qualified Calgary Home Buyers ask to book appointments to see the short list of homes with the goal of eliminating all but one!

The most important thing to get right when selling a home is PRICE. If a home was on the market and didn’t sell it’s because the Price didn’t meet the buyer’s perception of value.

Price is what you pay. Value is what you get. Two loonies are for sale. One is offered at $1.05, the other at 95 cents.

It’s obvious which one will sell quickly, and which one will sit on the shelve forever or be taken off the market?

Real Estate is the same, offer value and you sell quickly, over price and never sell.

“Buying A Listing” means telling you your home is worth more than it would ever sell for. The idea is to get price reductions from you until it does get to the price a Willing Qualified Calgary Home Buyer will pay. I don’t do that!

It takes me a bit of time to prepare an Honest Opinion of Current Calgary Market Value, but I don’t mind.

Call me if you would like an Honest Opinion of Current Market Value of your Calgary Alberta Home. 403 831 0842

The Basics of Organized Real Estate in Calgary
Home Mortgages

Unless you are paying cash for a home you will need a home mortgage

There are two basic types of mortgage agents.

  1. Mortgage Agents that work for a bank
  2. Mortgage Agents that do not work for a bank
Most people go directly to their bank to get a mortgage. Because they feel the bank knows them, likes them and will be easier to deal with. And in most cases that is true.
Many people go to an independent mortgage agent that has access to many lenders and many different types of mortgages. Typically independent mortgage agents are highly motivated to get you a mortgage.  
Each type of mortgage agent has its advantages and disadvantages. It's worth your effort to talk to both types.
To a Realtor® the main thing before they start showing you homes is that you are pre-approved for a mortgage and are ready to buy when you see the home you want.
Mortgage Pre-Approval favors the buyer when the right property is found.
Here are a few agents I work with to help you get started.
