HOT is an understatement. Just an example: normally Calgary has about 4,500 properties on the market at any time. Right now we're lucky to have 1,000 properties for sale.
If you want to sell your place, there's never been a better time. Many properties are seeing "bidding wars," and most are sold within days. (However, you still need to do your spring cleaning and touch ups!).
If you want to buy, be prepared to pay more than you expected,
and have financing pre-approved. But don't let that put you off. How many
people do you know who say, "I wish I'd bought Vancouver or Toronto real
estate 5 years ago"? There are no guarantees, but all indications are that
Calgary real estate is headed upward. Chances are good that the earlier
you get in, the more value you could gain.
Real Dave's around the cornerYou know we loved our condo in the old Synagogue. Believe it or not, we gave it up...and moved to another one around the corner onto 18th Ave! It's bigger and has more space for my home office, and more space to have more friends around (our favourite). Stop by anytime for a Fresca and a look around. 104 18th avenue S.E.
