What a year!We finished a Cornerstones Grant Suite, reached Platinum REIN member status, received the 2011 Top Player award from REIN, were semi-finalist in the Canadian Real Estate magazine Western Canada Top Investor Award, had a baby and managed to write for magazines in Canada and the UK and be in a couple of Don R. Campbell's books. To be honest Todd thinks he is working at 40% capacity (time management) and I'm probably 30% so what could we do if we took it up a notch...? If I were at 40% I would have posted this sooner!To all our partners you've pushed us to reaching these goals by asking questions and we couldn't have done any of this without you!

Going Back in Time to Be a Part of Hockey History! The Story of the China Clipper - Larry Kwong.Today I went back in history to 1948 as an extra in the documentary of Larry 'King' Kwong, aka the China Clipper. Larry Kwong was the first Asian to to play in professional hockey for the New York Rangers. His first game with the Rangers was against the Montreal Canadiens and he was allowed only 1 minute of ice time. Read more about this amazing Hockey Legend who, like Jackie Robinson, broke the race barrier to play professional sports! When the documentary comes out, I will be in the crowd, cheering on the Canadiens, over Larry's left shoulder!

How to Make a Home a House! Sellers need to be aware that when they are selling their home;  once they've decided to sell, it is no longer theirs. So it needs to look that way as well. Having a Professional Home Stager or Property Stylist come in and consult with them on how to do that is one of the best investments a home owner can make on their property. Every item that a person puts lovingly into their home, needs to be looked at critically and decided whether it can stay. Any personal item, photo, memento, keepsake, treasure, trophy and diploma needs to be removed. Not only for safety but to make a home look more like a house, or a product  that can be marketed to a target audience. Most sellers can't do this by themselves because they are attached to their possessions, as well as t...

The south side neighbourhood of Duggan has seen the average sale price per square foot steadily climb over the last year and a half.  This last quarter of 2011 was weaker for Duggan's sale price per square foot, but that has more to do with what type of home sold.  More details can be found here: Duggan Edmonton Real Estate

The Pleasantview neighbourhood in South Edmonton continues to climb higher on a sale price per square foot basis.  More and more homes are being knocked down in this area of large lots to build large two story infill homes.  I expect to see the average sale price per square foot continue to climb as more of these homes resell.  The highest sale price for 2011 in Pleasantview was $557,000.  More sales data including a price graph of Pleasantview can be found here: Pleasantview Edmonton Real Estate

Back in December of 2011, Toll Brothers made the decision to close the sales office in Villages at Aviano for an undisclosed amount of time. Apparently they finally decided that competing with the short sale and bank owned resale properties from earlier phases was too challenging. They had been able to consistently sell the new models for more than the resale, but it took heavy incentives and certainly not the volume they had hoped for I am sure. I will be curious when they decide they can open up again and finish the remaining buildings.   With all the new home inventory gone, there is only resale inventory remaining and even that is scarce now. Currently there are only 4 units active in Villages at Aviano. They all happen to be traditional sales as well – no short sales or bank owned ...

The Fulton Place neighbourhood in southeast Edmonton has seen it's average sale price per square foot stay above the Edmonton average selling price per square foot.  Fulton Place has had a couple of weaker quarters to end 2011, but I think that this neighbourhood will bounce back in 2012.  Fulton Place is conveniently located for access to Sherwood Park and the river valley.  More detailed pricing information on Fulton Place can be found here: Fulton Place Real Estate
