Many people start their home buying process backwards. That is, they start looking at homes they may buy BEFORE they have sold their existing home. This is a BIG MISTAKE unless you fall into one of the following categories:
You can afford to own both homes for a period of time.
You are looking for a home that is so unusual or overpriced, that the seller will be grateful for your interest and be willing to work with you. In exchange for a full price, they will wait until you sell your existing home, before you follow through and buy their home.
I’m going to share some tough love with you!
In most circumstances you would be well advised to sell your home first and here’s why:
Are you like many Albertans that dream of living somewhere else after retirement? Popular destinations include the Okanagan, Vancouver Island, the Sunshine coast or perhaps Arizona. Where else do Albertans like to go?
Before you leap it might be a good idea to look at the bigger picture and consider what such a move would actually mean to many facets of your life. For example.
1. Consider the cost of living. Food, heating and water plus the cost of accommodation might cost you more or less than your current situation. If it costs less it could be a no brainer. What if it costs more? Can you afford to live in a more expensive area?
2. Consider your quality of life. Many people want to enjoy mild winters, sea air and perhaps a view. All good
Stuart Neal and Ambergate Advisors are an amazing company to work with!! I have used Stuart twice to both sell and buy properties (2012 and 2019). I was under a very tight timeline with my most recent sale and Stuart got me a full price offer within 2 days of listing! All of this was done at time of year where home buying slows down a lot (Christmas). Everyone that Stuart works with is great too, especially Pam in his office, his recommended lawyer, and the photographer who took the best pictures of my house I’d ever seen. I know the marketing was a direct contributor to what sold my house in the fast time that it did. Even when some of the negotiating conditions got tough, Stuart stood his ground and advocated for me the whole

Don’t be like most home buyers and wait until the Spring. If you think outside of the box you may benefit in a number of ways. Heres why:
1. Less Competition
How would you feel if you wait until Spring to find your dream home only to have it snatched away by a competing buyer? Don’t believe all that you hear about our market. The best homes still get snatched up quickly and with multiple offers. Consider being one of the fewer buyers looking now or wait until Spring and join the crowd.
If you buy a home now you will enjoy the strong possibility of being the only buyer negotiating. This gives you leverage you will not enjoy in the Spring.
2. Lower Prices
Sales prices tend to track lower during January and February. The quickly escalate
Amy and Doug owned this Blackmud Creek home for a number of years whilst their children were growing up. It offered them many happy memories but now that the children had moved away, they chose to purchase a more ‘age friendly’ bungalow. Amy and Doug tried a discount REALTOR® first. The home languished on the market for many months and their discount REALTOR® was unsuccessful in finding any suitable buyers.
Amy and Doug realized they needed to find a REALTOR® that knew how to advertise in all of the best places including social media and to ensure no stone was left unturned. However, they also objected to paying traditional and what they felt was expensive commissions. After researching the market, they chose the flat fee program
Lyle had plans to build a log home in the foothills. The market had not been kind since he purchased this home and renovated it. Lyle knew he needed to find a real estate brokerage that could sell the home for full market value and potentially save him some money in real estate commissions. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.
After a reasonable period of time we found a good quality buyer that could offer Lyle his possession date and whom was willing to pay full market value. We helped Lyle release the equity from his home and now his new log home is well under way.
