Situation

Alex had lived in his split-level home in Breckenridge Greens for many years. His children were grown and flown the nest. The home was simply too big for one person. The yardwork was becoming a grind, not to mention snow clearing on that corner lot. Alex tried a traditional agent a few years back without success. Alex decided to look for a modern value priced service that would fit his needs. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.

Result

After a reasonable period of time, the team at Ambergate was able to identify a buyer that could be convinced to pay full-market value. We assisted Alex through every step of the process. Provided the same high-quality service to the buyer (via another team…

For many highly driven people, including me, the thought of having a coach, or an accountability partner was not that important. After all I can drive myself to achieve. And in some cases, these ‘coaches’ can cost an absolute fortune, so why waste the money?

I’ve come to accept and believe that having an accountability partner is useful and extremely valuable. Why?

1. Sharing your goal ‘out loud’ to another person makes it more real.

2. Knowing that someone else is sharing an interest in your progress gives failure a ‘cost.’

3. Not reaching your goal can feel like breaking a promise.

4. Most of us care what others think of us. We want to be thought well of and this can motivate us to reach the goal.

5. Many REALTORS® work from home.…

In February, sales volume blew through the roof compared to last year. With strong buyer demand and lower inventory, we anticipate brisk activity during the first quarter of 2021.

Sales Values

In February 2021, average sales prices were just under $375,000 compared to just under $360,000 last year, or 4% UP. Prices have strengthened since March 2020 and we anticipate that they will stay high. 

Days on Market

Buyers have been snapping up homes very quickly. Average days on market in February was only 50 days, compared to 60 days in 2020 and 63 days in 2019.

Sales Volume

Last year there were around 753 total sales registered in February and here we are at month end with 899 units reported sold, equal to a 19% increase over…

It’s March 3rd 2021 and many people are wondering if the Edmonton Alberta home sales market is favoring buyers or sellers right now?

If we look at the big picture its would seem that it’s a sellers market.

Sales volume is up in Edmonton by a whopping 19% over this time last year.

Sales prices are 4% UP.

Its when we look at inventory levels that things even really interesting.

Single family inventory is down by around 650 units (13%) which should lead to higher prices. However, condo units for sale are up by 227 units (12%). Covid 19 has made condo living less attractive, at least in the short term and this combined with a glut of inventory impact prices and I expect to see condo sales prices drop over the next few months.

So, the…

The best amongst us are good at establishing goals and formulating a plan to reach them, but most of us struggle to establish a process for success. 

Why not do this? Inversion thinking is where we think about of all the stuff that could go wrong. Completing an inversion study or a pre-mortem can be a great way to figure what could go wrong and then to fix it. 

Step 1 – Establish a goal 

Step 2 – Write down as many reasons as you can think of as to why you will fail. It might be better do this with someone else or perhaps your family can jump in too. 

Step 3 – Identify the top 3 to 6 reasons. Perhaps those that would have the biggest impact. 

Step 4 – Create some positive solutions and perhaps a series…

If you are like members of my team, your database may consist of hundreds of prospective clients. Keeping track of your best contacts and prospects can be a challenge.

Why not do this?

Manage your prospects into 2 groups. Your Hot List and Your Warm List

  • Your Hot List is people you know that are going to buy or sell a home within the next 90 days from YOU. 

  • Your Warm List is people that you think may buy or sell a home over the next 12 months, but not necessarily from you.

 I recommend you review your Hot and Warm Lists every day. Of course, some folks will be brought into the groups and others moved out.

For other tips on how maximize the potential of your database, please give me a call, or send me an email.

Enjoy your…
