Tightened Housing Supply Curbs Sales Volume

Posted by Nancy Ball on Thursday, April 25th, 2013 at 6:28pm.

Hi Everyone!  I have been busy writing and getting offers on listings even though the month of March was the lowest sales in more than 5 years in Calgary! My average day on market to get a sale for a home was 8 days until April 12th! Now it has gone up to 16 days but still...not bad :-) I have had the chance to work with some great people and looking to help more. Home staging, my “Platinum Selling System” and a smart pricing strategy are what is producing results. Buyers are able to negotiate some deals but there is less on the market so it is an advantage to the Seller right now. I was successful in negotiating $5,000 off of a new home builder for my out-of-town buyers. Negotiate until you get what you want is my motto!

I have been working this year to add value to my clients and this is one idea I love! Enter your name to win a trip for 4 to Disneyland! See below for details. Good luck!  


Tightened Housing Supply Curbs Sales Volume     

First quarter sales improve in condominium market, while declining in single family sector

Calgary, April 2, 2013 –The inventory of active homes for sale in Calgary are the lowest March levels in more than five years. The decline in new listings hampered resale sales growth, which declined by more than two per cent in March compared to March 2012.

New listings in March are five per cent lower than levels recorded in 2012, and five per cent lower after the first quarter. The overall active listings stand at just 4,006 units, up from February’s levels but well below the number available one year ago. » Click Here

10 Ways to Utilize Your Smartphone to Control Your Home                 

Your smartphone is only as good as the apps you have, right? Of course I know there are other components to a quality smartphone than just applications. Things like cameras, Internet connectivity,file storage, or whatever you want to use it for, but when you get ahold of the right applications you can do more then you think. In fact, with the right tools your smartphone might even pay for itself.

Let’s explore some ways we can use our devices to manage our homes. You see, we live in an age where home appliances are becoming “smarter” everyday. That means they have more powerful computer chips installed within their plastic/stainless steal bodies and they can talk to each other and to your smartphone via Wi-Fi connectivity. Here are 10 ways you can utilize your smartphone to control your home. » Click Here
