Recently I met up with the owner of this growing business, Thamir Sharif to talk about his current project in Crestwood, his background and plans for the future.

Thamir is a young and enthusiastic family man who started his tenure in the construction business about 12 years ago. Initially he was a renovator and flipper. His first new build project was back in 2012.

These days Thamir focuses on creating luxury level homes intended for the discerning homeowner.

Thamir explained that he is not in the volume business. In most years he will oversee less than 10 projects per year, although in 2022 he was involved in projects that took him to ’20 doors’ some of which was multi family construction on behalf of a client.

In 2023 he expects most of his…

2022 was a mad year.

If you were helping home buyers, for most of the year the main concern was finding a good home and ensuring your client was the first buyer to secure it and hopefully without paying far too much. Or you were in multiple offer situations, and you needed good strategies to emerge as the winner.

All that’s changed now.

Supply of homes and condos for sale has come up to normal levels and buyer demand has backed off.

Prices have moderated. Single family homes can be purchased for far less than in the spring and condos have been trading at stable prices all year.

Interest rate increases is now the topic on most peoples minds and many buyers are worried about expensive mortgage payments and a market crash.

Many buyers…

It might not make sense, at first. Who would want to buy a home during the Christmas holiday season? Surely no one is selling right now?

Let me give you 3 good reasons why buying your next home now could be a wise idea.

1.  You Have Less Competition.

Believing that no one is selling. Many home buyers make the mistake of staying out of the market. They decide to wait until spring. This means if a ‘cream puff’ comes into the market you may be able to get a really good deal IF you are active whilst others wait. If you wait until spring, you will almost certainly be in multiple offers and you risk paying MUCH more than if you buy now.

2.  Homes Will Show Well & Smell Amazing

When does a home look the most inviting and smell the best? During…

Not one but 2 reviews from this wonderful client. Thank you Mary and Stuart!

Stuart Martin

“I found Stuart Neal on a friends group as we were looking to sell our house. He came out and went through everything in detail, in fact that is the most anyone has explained to us regarding our house, what we can expect and how much we should pay to a realtor. We were really interested in the fixed price that he offered. However we were blown away by the total professionalism, the photographer and video was fantastic, in fact , just the same as you would expect from a full price realtor.. no difference whatsoever…we had viewings every day that week with an open house the Saturday right after.. we got an offer within a week and sold and the new owners can…

“Stuart not only gave knowledge based expert advice but he went above and beyond his role in helping us sell our home. Despite the time crunch of the autumn/winter season, he was able to achieve the goal in time. Stuart constantly communicated the transaction from advertising to viewing to closing and so I never felt left out of the loop. I would recommend Ambergate to anyone who is looking and or selling their properties.”

1. You Won’t Save Any Money

The seller has agreed to pay a commission to both the selling and buying REALTOR®. The commission is usually ‘baked in’ to the process and was agreed to be paid by the seller at the time of engagement with the listing REALTOR®.

Buy with your own independent REALTOR® and the seller will pay a commission to your REALTOR® from the proceeds of the sale.

2. You May Lose Out to Other Buyers

The seller has engaged the listing REALTOR® to represent them and their interests.

If you approach the listing REALTOR® directly, you might put them into a very awkward position and a potential conflict of interest.

The listing REALTOR® cannot represent you and the seller who is their primary client.

You might choose to…

Its counter intuitive I know. Who would want to sell their home during the Christmas holiday season? Surely no one is buying?

Let me give you 4 good reasons why listing your home now could be a very good idea.

1.  You Have Less Competition.

Believing that no one is buying. Many home sellers make the mistake of keeping their homes off the market. They decide to wait until spring. There are always buyers desperate to find homes they can have quickly. Buyers who are looking now, are very motivated. Statistics show that sometimes home buyers at this time of the year can often be convinced to pay premium prices, especially if you can accommodate a quick possession date.

2.  Your Home Will Show Well & Smell Amazing

When does your home look…

The November condo market continued to be very active, and sales volume is high. However, an abundance of supply is holding prices down.

Sales Prices

In November 2022, average sales prices were around $215,000 compared to over $216,000 in November 2021 and sales price for the entire year is tracking neutral.

Sales Volume

In November 2022, around 289 sales were registered compared to around 325 sold units in 2021. We expect to see sales volume for 2022 track about 600 units above last year or an increase of around 13% for the year.

Days on Market

Average days on market for November 2022 was 58 days compared to 61 days in November 2022. In my opinion this is a strong sign that buyers feel confident about opportunities in…
