If you have been following the market you have no doubt noted that values are UP. In fact, based on a rolling average, resale prices are about 9% up from January 2021 to the end of May 2021, when compared to the same period last year.

Should you wait before buying your next home? That depends.

If you already own a home and you have interest in moving to a larger home, or a smaller home, I suggest that you focus on your needs first and not worry too much if prices are going up or down.

However, if you are a first-time home buyer this question could be very important. Look at the graph above. Its shows benchmark prices across the Edmonton single family market.

Can you see the 6-year cycle?

From June 2009, which is when sales values…

Imagine that you have found your dream home. Imagine also that the sellers are reluctant to enter into a purchase contract with you because they have not yet found somewhere to live themselves.

Why not take the pressure off? Consider a sale and leaseback.

How would this work?

Offer to purchase the seller’s home at a certain price and with a possession date that is sooner rather than later.

Agree to let the sellers stay home!

What happens after that? You agree to rent the house back to the seller for a short period of time, for example 2 to 4 months. This will give them some extra time to go about searching for and selecting their next home.

This approach offers you certainty, knowing that your dream home has been secured and that you…

Are you uncomfortable selling your existing home before you have a new one selected?

Do you crave certainty in terms of knowing how much money you have to invest in your next home?

Why not take the pressure off? Consider a sale and leaseback.

How would this work?

Sell your home to a buyer at a certain price and with a possession date that is sooner rather than later.

Don’t move out!

Instead, you rent the house back from your purchaser for a short period of time, for example 2 to 4 months, whilst you go about searching for and selecting your next home. For your next home, you can negotiate from a position of strength, knowing that you have money in the bank and some time to get organized.

At the end of the rental period, you move…

In these days of low inventory, multiple offers and nervous home sellers / home buyers it’s important to do something different.

Are your clients missing out in multiple offers or finding sellers that are stuck owning a home they must sell before they buy?

We started talking with Stuart a few years ago when we initially tried selling our house on our own. He had called inquiring about the property. That experience was stressful, unsure, and most importantly, unsuccessful. We ended up keeping the house and renting it out for a few years. Stuart kept in touch through those years and let us know about the market. Fast forward to about 2 months ago, we needed to sell the house, and after looking at the options, we found the team, knowledge, experience, and flat rate that Stuart brought were all amazing, so made our choice hoping that this experience would be better than our previous. We definitely made the right choice. The whole process was very simple and fast. Stuart provided us…

Yue Wang joined us almost exactly 3 months ago. Prior to becoming a REALTOR® Yue worked in management and first developed an interest in real estate through investing. To date, Yue has enjoyed phenomenal success. He has 6 firm transactions on the board and 2 more are pending.

I interviewed Yue on Monday May 17th, 2021. Let’s learn what Yue had to say.

1. Why did you join Ambergate Realty Advisors?

My first reason for choosing Ambergate Realty Advisors was their reputation. One only has to look at Google reviews to see how well the public regards the brokerage. The second reason was that I wanted to belong to a closely knit smaller team.

2. What have you enjoyed most about working at Ambergate Realty Advisors?

Firstly, I have enjoyed the…

Occasionally someone will ask me why we charge a simple flat fee for our home selling services, rather than a more traditional percentage-based commission.

I ask why not?

We treat all our home selling clients the same way. We do the same job for each of them. We carry out the same work for each of them. We strive to achieve the best possible outcome for each of them.

So why we would charge them different prices based on the value of their home?

Perhaps we should be ask those REALTORS® that charge a percentage why they do it their way?

They might argue that a percentage model encourages them to get the most amount of money for their clients. The actual difference in commission is so small if they get another thousand or two for the…

We would gladly recommend Stuart Neal and Ambergate Realty for anyone selling their house. We tried to sell our house on our own for about a month with no luck. During this time before we signed up for Stuart's flat fee home program, he kept in regular contact with my wife and I. He would give us advise and market trends in our neighborhood and we developed a trust with him. He wanted the best for us in selling our house, and that was even before we signed up with him. After some stress and anxiety trying to sell our home by our self's, we decided to let Stuart take charge. Once we signed the papers the whole process went very smoothly. Stuart would keep us updated and in the loop. He helped us effectively negotiate the offer…
