Eddie & Joanne had held the house as investment vehicle for a number of years. The market had not been kind to them & so they looked for a way to sell the house without having to pay a large traditional percentage based commission. Their initial approach was to purchase a Comfree program. For six long months the house languished on the market & did not sell. At this point Eddie & Joanne started to look for an alternative REALTOR® program. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.


The first thing we did was advise Eddie & Joanne on what repairs were needed to be completed in order to make the house marketable. Then we took a long look at the ‘value proposition’ that the house might

Guy & Amalia purchased their home several years ago & picked it primarily because it was situated directly on a bus route. Amalia has since learned to drive & now that her job has changed, they wanted to find a slightly smaller home & perhaps one on a quieter street. At first, they listed with a discount brokerage. Their experience was not positive. Their REALTOR® took nice pictures & wrote a good description, but she missed the mark & the house did not sell. Guy & Amalia wanted to sell, but they were resistant to paying expensive traditional commissions. They looked around the market for an alternative service provider. The flat fee program by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.

If you are ready to buy a home this could be the time to jump into the market. Prices have remained low this last 2 months. We don’t expect this trend to continue. 

Sales Values:

Home buyers continued to push their advantage in November. Home buyers were able to secure deep discounts compared to this time last year. On average, home buyers paid $369,336 equivalent to a 4% discount over last year, although it should be noted that buyers paid premium prices in November 2017, to beat the lending rule changes coming into effect January 2018.

Numbers Sold:

750 buyers purchased homes in November 2018 down by 155 units last year. This suggests that despite the outstanding deals to be had, many buyers are sitting on their hands

If you are like most home buyers, you will get caught up in the excitement of selecting your next home. Your list of things you want to get will be long. And expensive!

We recommend that you try and get grounded as quickly as you can. There’s no point in looking at homes with swimming pools and tennis courts when the reality is that your budget or needs are quite different. Here are some simple steps we hope you can use to get from dreaming to owning in the least stressful way.

1.  Set Your Budget

Have you determined what level of monthly payment you can afford? Have you factored in the cost of taxes, utility bills and maintenance? Have you secured mortgage approval? Do this first!

 2.  Decide Where Not What

First you must decide where

Don’t fall into the trap of complacency. At this time of the year, hundreds of home sellers witness outstanding success and sell for full market value.

Between November 21st, 2017 and January 31st, 2018 almost 1700 homes sold in the Edmonton market taking around 70 days to sell. There’s every reason to expect that this year will be just the same. Click on this link to see the detail: Edmonton Market Report

Here’s why you could do well:

  1. Reduced competition. Many sellers just give up until Spring. Buyers who are looking now are motivated. They might pay you a premium price, if they can move in quickly.
  2. Home values often go up. Based on last year’s statistics house prices in the metro Edmonton area increased just before Christmas.
  3. Many
