I received a phone call from one of my seller clients the other day. She asked me the oddest question and at first, I was flummoxed.

She was getting very frustrated that as selling values slipped away in this ever so tough Edmonton market of 2019, I was asking her to make a second price correction to attract more buyers.

The question she asked me? Here it is. Don’t you have your own clientele?

I had to think about this for a while. She was asking me if I had a discreet group of people cultivated by myself who are ready to buy homes at whatever price I tell them to. These same people I assume must not ever go on the internet to check out prices for themselves. Don’t ever want to see other homes not listed by myself and act only in the

Many of our clients are downsizers. One of the options that we suggest to our clients as they seek to simplify their lives, leave home maintenance behind and in some cases reduce costs, is to move into a condominium and to sell their single-family home.

One of the interesting phenomena I have noticed is the aversion that many clients have to selecting a ground floor condo unit. The overriding fear seems to be that ground floor condo units are more susceptible to crime and in particular burglary. I have never seen any evidence that this fear is grounded in reality. For sure some areas of Edmonton, St Albert and Sherwood Park may be more prone to crime than others and its possible to review crime stats by area online. It’s a good idea to compare
