Situation

Donna purchased this home right at the time when values peaked in Sherwood Park. Unfortunately, after many years of living in the home, re-sale values had still not recovered to a point where Donna would be able to sell for more than she paid. Therefore, it was very important for Donna to pick a service provider that could save her some money on commissions. There was also lots of choice for buyers, as many other sellers were listed at the time. The Ambergate Realty Advisors flat fee program was an obvious choice.

Result

After only 35 days on the market, we negotiated a sales price equal to approx. 99% of the asking price and we saved Donna almost $1500 in real estate commissions.

Situation

Rosanna was the executor for a home formerly owned by a neighbor. The children of the former owner wanted to get the most amount of money for the lowest real estate commissions. They purchased the Comfree program in August 2016. The home languished on the market for a full 6 months. They purchased the Comfree program again in February 2017. After 75 days on the market Ambergate Realty Advisors were asked to take over the sales and marketing process.

Result

Within 30 days, we had created multiple offers, we saved the sellers well over $2000 in commissions and we negotiated a sales price $6500 ABOVE the asking price. Stuart Neal, the broker owner of Ambergate Realty Advisors, consulted with the sellers and advised them on some

Situation

Susan and Frank purchased this home as their ‘forever home’. They paid top dollar as the specifications was very high and included: stainless appliances, granite counters and hardwood floors etc. Unfortunately, Frank’s work moved east to Toronto and they had no choice, but to try and sell. Susan and Frank knew they would have to sell at a discount and they feared that real estate commissions would gobble up all of their equity. They tried a traditional Remax REALTOR,® but after many months of no success and very little input from their REALTOR,® they turned to Ambergate Realty Advisors.

Result

After a reasonable time on the market, we negotiated full market value for the home and saved Susan and Frank over $8200 in commissions.

Situation

Eileen had reached a point in her life where she needed to downsize. Eileen was not at first comfortable with the notion of working with a REALTOR® and decided to try advertising on Kijji first. It quickly became apparent to Eileen that she would find the home selling process too overwhelming, without the assistance and support of a professional home selling company. Eileen researched her options and choosing to work with Ambergate Realty Advisors was an easy choice. 

Result 

We created complete exposure to the market. We generated many showings and identified a suitable buyer. We negotiated full market value for Eileen and saved her more than $6,000 in commissions.

Situation

Lori was living in this lovely little home in Lago Lindo for many years. She was offered a really interesting job in Saskatoon. Lori asked around her circle of friends for a REALTOR® that could be trusted to deliver a great result when she sold her house. Lori was referred to Ambergate Realty Advisors. We were delighted to provide services to Lori, in order that she could move on with her life in a positive way. See our discount Sellers Program details here.

Result

The market in Lago Lindo has been tough this year (2017). Many homes have sat on the market for a long time and many more did not sell. After a reasonable period of time, we identified a strong buyer candidate. We negotiated for full market value and we saved her money on

Summary:

Home sales values strengthened in August and homes took only 54 days to sell on average. Will this pattern continue? We suggest you read the outlook section below.

Sales Values

 

August home sales prices showed a nice increase over the same month in 2016. Home sellers this year received approximately $2924 MORE than did home sellers last year. The average sales price for August 2017 was $375,099 compared to $372,175 last year. We would consider this to be a balanced & healthy market.

Days on Market

 

August home sellers both in 2017 and 2016 fared the same, in terms of time on the market. 54 days was how long it took sellers to put their homes under contract. This is a very good sign from most perspectives.
