Jo Green talks about her experience of working with Stuart Neal

My husband and I first started speaking to Stuart over a year ago, when we were living in the UK.

We had all our plans in motion to move to Canada and found Stuart on a Facebook page. We started chatting generally about houses in the areas we could afford and what we were looking for, but as emigrating was a long process, we waited a while to reach out again.
Once we found out we had weeks to move from the UK, we contacted Stuart with (what seemed to us) a rash decision to buy house without even viewing it.
In the UK house prices are so very expensive, we believed that the house we had found was a rare gem and would go before we even arrived and our ideal first home…

In the Edmonton area condos are extremely undervalued when compared to single family homes. Single family home sales values have long recovered from the last crash in 2008. Condominiums have not, making them a bargain in comparison. There are also some advantages to consider.

  1.        Lower Maintenance and Repairs:

Condos typically require less maintenance and upkeep compared to single-family homes. Many maintenance tasks, such as lawn care, exterior painting, and roof repairs, are often the responsibility of the condo association. This can free up your time and reduce the financial burden of major repairs, as the costs are shared among condo owners through association fees. In contrast, single-family homeowners are solely responsible for all…

The Four Levels of REALTORS®

Nick McLean a team lead, writer and coach in the USA published an interesting article recently in which he talked about the 4 levels of REALTORS®.

It made a lot of sense to me. Here is a summary:

In the real estate world, REALTORS® can be categorized into four levels based on their skills and networks:

Level 1: These REALTORS® primarily assist their friends and acquaintances, but they may not actively seek out homes for them. They mainly focus on arranging property showings.

Level 2: REALTORS® at this stage also work with friends, family, and referrals. They help clients find homes, often through online searches, and share listings with buyers.

Level 3: At this level, REALTORS® expand their client base by…

The easiest way to use this technique is to invite lots of questions from the visitor. Encourage them to ask you questions for which you don’t have an answer. Then you have an opportunity to ask for their details so that you can get back to them.

  1.      Be The First to Know Method

For this technique you can suggest that you often hear of other listings coming into this market before they are listed. Or you can suggest that some of the…

3 Reasons to Buy a Home Now Before Christmas 2023

Here are three reasons to consider buying a home in the Edmonton area right now

 Increased Supply

The Edmonton housing market has seen an increase in housing supply recently. This provides you with more options & a better chance of finding a home that fits your needs.

Price Moderation: Prices often moderate during the winter months in Edmonton. With lower demand, you may have the opportunity to purchase a home at a more affordable price.
