Our Fare Share ... what a crazy name to review the Royalites this province receive from the Rich (the oil man). Finally the media is starting to write in realties.I disagree with the provinces 'money grab'.The policies that Ralph Klien created in getting Alberta to where it is today ... will be momentairly slowed with this "Our Fare Share". Please take two minutes, and let your government member know that they should do the right thing.

Canadians are feeling proud.Our dollar is higher than the US dollar ... and I'm predicting it will remain higher for some time.  I've been encouraging American investors for many months now to get into Canadian assets, and this suggestion has now proved very profitable for those who have done so.  I believe that there continues to be significant risk is U.S. assets, and that this risk will extend into 2008 and possibly beyond.Until the looming threat of the mortgage crisis and massive inventories in the US start to clear up, the US will remain a generally risky place to be investing. I expect the Canadian dollar to remain higher against the U.S. dollar for some time now.  There will be fluctuations, but I do believe we’re in a new era.

     With the number of houses for sale in the Calgary market, sellers are looking for an edge.  They want their homes to stand out from the competition and sell for the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time.     More and more people are hiring home stagers before they put their house on the market.  Home staging is not a new idea but it has been brought to the public's attention because of the numerous television shows all designed around selling your home.  In Calgary, Attention to Detail, is filling this niche.     Margo and Betty, owner's of Attention to Detail, will look at your house through buyer's eyes and make it appeal to as many potential purchasers as possible.  Curb appeal, decluttering, furniture placement, and color choices are some of the areas they will ...

I've been considering starting a blog for some time now ... but had no idea how.I just signed up to a free service ... and in just a few minutes I have a blog.Of course, I'm sceptical ... and will see how it goes. I'll try to post frequently for the next 90 days ... to see if I can create a habit ... and really learn how to get this thing going.  "It's become a golden opportunity for buyers to buy property", Ron Stanners, CREB's president was reported saying in Calgary Herald yesterday.  Luckily for sophisticated real estate investors, that quote was buried under doom and gloom headlines ... "Home Sales Tumble 11 Per Cent".It's a good time to buy Calgary Real Esate.

(Create Appeal Home Staging)
Selling your house or condo? Read on to see how you can make your space the star of the home-buying market.Thanks to the popularity of Home & Garden Television shows, many people already know about the benefits of home staging. But many homeowners may not realize just how much payback you can get from adding some creative appeal to your abode. As soon as you decide to sell your home, it becomes a product that needs to be marketed to your advantage. Staging is the art of preparing a home for sale to create a vital, great first impression, which is crucial to a quick, well-priced sale. If, like most home sellers, you’re emotionally attached to your home, you probably think a good clean and tidy up is all it takes to attract buyers to love your home the way you do. But research shows that ...

This is my first time 'blogging' and I must admit I am a terrible writer (thank goodness my wife has the gift). I will express a few opinions here and would love comments or conversation. So here we go.   Well Summer is almost over and the news in the paper continues to rave about the Calgary Market. Volume of Sales are at a historic high. But does this mean you will have an easy time selling?The large volume of listings being carried through the summer months has had a downward force on pricing. I expect this to carry through to the end of winter as positive net migration seems to be slowing as well. I feel that this will result in some deals to be had in the fall months and we are starting to see it now. This may be the perfect time to find those flip opportunities. It will also make ...

It's a little late this month, but I figured it was better late than never. Calgary's real estate market is still going strong however I think we should expect to see it level off here in the coming months. These are a few of the July Calgary Metro stats released by the Calgary Real Estate Board in early August. As of the end of July, the Calgary Real Estate Board reported that inventory has hit 8,972, which is the highest level recorded this year.  The Average Selling Price in Calgary for Single Family homes, in July, hit $505,920 while the Average Selling Price for Condominiums was $318,582.
