Are you thinking of selling a house or condo in the metro Edmonton area this year? You might want to consider doing it now.

Here’s why.

These sellers are going to be in competition with a lot of other folks who will be putting their up homes onto the market at the same time. Be smart. Do it now and you might have the only home for sale in your neighborhood? This is a perfect opportunity to sell quickly and for full market value.

2. Quality Buyers – Buyers looking now are serious. Usually they are under some pressure to select a home and buy it quickly. If you can offer a quick possession, we can often negotiate a premium price for you.

Situation

Sam and his wife had chosen to downsize. Confident that their home would sell quickly they purchased a new smaller home and moved in. Sam was not eager to pay expensive traditional REALTOR® commissions so he listed with a well-known discount brokerage. Sam was disappointed. He told us that he received very little feedback from his REALTOR® and no offers. After the listing expired, Sam looked around for a service provider that could demonstrate success and that would also be able to save him some money on commission. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.

Situation

Dave Ungstad is a former REALTOR®. It was time for Edie and Dave to move to their new home in Victoria. Because of Dave’s previous industry experience they made the decision to purchase the 'for sale by owner' program from Comfree.

Unfortunately a competitive market, combined with Dave’s lack of time to focus on the effective marketing of the home, resulted in disappointing results. There were not many showings and those that did occur were of poor quality. Edie and Dave started to look around for smart effective options to get the home sold. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors appealed to both Edie and Dave.

Situation

Debbie had arranged to buy an old church in the country side just outside of Edmonton. She desperately needed to sell her existing home in Bellevue and tried a discount REALTOR® first. This did not go well. The REALTOR® was new to the industry and Debbie suggested that they did not counsel her very well. Her home was not shown very often and there were no offers.

Debbie wondered if she could find a local REALTOR® and brokerage that had the experience and marketing program that could sell her home. She also wanted to save money on commissions if she could. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.

We produced a very strong offer within the first couple of weeks of the marketing

Situation

Marina and Andrey have lived in many parts of the world. Ultimately have decided to go back home to Russia. They purchased the home just a few short years ago and due to competition from other buyers they paid over market value at the time.
