Summary:

The market definitely faltered in October. Against the backdrop of a very strong September, this is surprising. However, based on years gone by, we do expect November and December to be excellent months for home sellers.

Sales Values:

In October, it was home buyers that got the upper hand. Home buyers were able to push for noteworthy discounts. On average, home buyers paid $364,804 which is equal to 3% LESS than this time last year. It should be stressed that this pattern is not common. In general home values, particularly for single family homes, have remained robust throughout 2018. 

Numbers Sold:

Sales volume was also down. In October this year 813 homes were sold down by 196 units for October 2017. Was it weather

If your home has been on the market for a while you maybe under some pressure to lower the asking price. Perhaps you have been resisting this measure and its completely normal to feel this way. No one likes giving away their money. Before you accept a lower asking price, make sure you fine tune these areas of your ‘value proposition’ first:

1.  Adjust Your Possession Date

Can you move out quickly? If so, you must offer immediate possession. This is something that often attracts the best quality buyers who are in a hurry to move in. If you are currently offering a ‘traditional’ 30, 60 or even 90 days possession change it now.

2.  Terms

Have you included your appliances and window coverings as part of the package? You should. Buyers covet

If you have been thinking about purchasing a condominium either as a home or investment, this could be the time to do so. Average selling prices are DOWN by 4% when compared to 2017. Let’s discuss why.

The Edmonton residential real estate market has been flooded this past 18 months with excess inventory and in particular condominiums. If you buy now you will enjoy a ton of choice and you will have exceptional leverage to negotiate a REALLY GOOD DISCOUNT.

What might happen if you wait?

We are already seeing many condos come off the market as owners realise that they are not going to get the price they hoped for. As the excess inventory dries up, you will have less choice and YOU WILL PAY MORE.

In the market we serve ie metro Edmonton Alberta, many people just love Halloween. Perhaps it’s a family tradition? You put up those inflatable spiders, ghouls or Frankenstein like monsters on your front lawn. You festoon your windows with witch shaped stickers and some of your tricks make a loud noise.

It’s fun, isn’t it?

What if we told you that these most of these things could hurt your chances of selling your home?

Our advice?

1.  Avoid obstructing the view of the home, making it scary or associating it with death, (picture those tombstones that some folks install). These things just give the wrong impression.

2.  Avoid placing stickers on windows that block out light. We suggest you avoid these completely.
