They are interested in our affordable lifestyle, compared to where they live, and the opportunity to get into a home and start a life here in Calgary.

With the national interest tied with Calgarians' needs and wants of also moving up, downsizing or simply needing to make changes to where they live, we are walking into 2022 with great anticipation of a market that will continue to be tight inventory and increasing prices. 

Over the Christmas break, we heard and saw listings go on the market and have 15+ offers on them within a day of being listed. We…

Banks vs Mortgage Brokers - Who should you work with?

 

banks-vs-mortgage-brokers.pngAre you ready to buy your next property but still deciding if you should go to your bank or a mortgage broker?

Jared Chamberlain and Paul Moyer talk about the pros and cons of working with banks and mortgage brokers from their experience in helping clients buy their dream homes.

Many people, especially first-time home buyers, think it is easier to get a mortgage from their own bank as it already has their financial records, but that is not always the case! Even if you have had an account in a bank for several years, you will still need to submit paperwork to their mortgage personnel and go through a particular process.

In a simple scenario, where you only have one or two income…

downsizing-your-homeBehind every real estate move is a transition in life.

We invited a seasoned couple, Joe and Dawn, to share their downsizing journey as they move from a 2,800 square-foot bungalow to a 1,100 square-foot apartment condo!

Joe and Dawn have been married for over 30 years now. They raised their beautiful children in their family home for about twenty years. When their children transitioned into raising their own families, the couple decided to move into an empty-nesters bungalow.

The Transition Trigger

As the world entered into an unprecedented time of the pandemic, and everybody was forced to stay home, Joe and Dawn realized that a 2,800 square foot home was too big for just the two of them. In fact, they figured that…
