1.  Large or Small Brokerage?

In my opinion, a big brokerage favours the broker i.e. the broker is only running a large cash flow machine and is simply making money off lots of agents.

1.  Maximum audience

At the time of writing we are in the middle of the Covid 19 pandemic here in Edmonton.

If you offer a virtual tour, ALL home buyers can take a look around your listing from the comfort of their current home. In many cases buyers are demanding to see a tour BEFORE they will agree to and look at your home.

It would be natural to think that due to Covid 19, our market is flat & values are down. In fact, the opposite is true. We definitely saw a drop off in sales volume & sales values back in March & April when the Covid crisis hit us. However, since that time the market has just got stronger as each passing month goes by. I am confident that there is so much pent up demand, hundreds of home sellers will witness outstanding success & sell for full market value.

How busy will the market be? Based on last year’s market statistics, almost 1400 homes will sell across metro Edmonton between November 1st & December 31st 2020. Average days on market will be around 71 days. Average sales values will be around $380,000 UP on last years values. To read the very
