Calgary to remain active through 2023

It seems like Calgary is the place people are migrating to today. From the beginning of the year the activity in all sectors and price ranges has been more than active. 

The pundits are still very bullish on Alberta, Calgary, Edmonton and all the centres that are close by. Multiple offers happen quickly when a property is positioned well and price reductions still occur if sellers are asking too much.

For buyers today a couple of things you should do is 1. get pre-approved with a lender, 2 start viewing properties online and with an agent to be prepared to deal in this type of market, 3. have your downpayment and deposit money ready to use 4. home inspections are still your best friend and we have a couple of the best companies to use.

Bottom line, you should get comfortable with your price point, look at everything you can and get ready when that great home appears because you will have to act quickly.


If I can be of any help then please call, text or email me.


Thanks, and good Luck!

Getting your home ready this Spring


Eight great tips for getting your home ready for Spring

1. Complete pre-season maintenance of outdoor power equipment and garden tools. Once the snow melts. Inspect snow blowers, lawnmowers, pressure washers, and other outdoor power and landscaping equipment for wear and damage. Replace worn or damaged parts with new components and clean the equipment. Stock up on degreasers, filters, spark plugs and other essentials.


2. Dedicate a few hours per weekend to organizing closets, cabinets, basements, attics and other storage locations.
The annual home organization work dubbed “spring cleaning” works wonders. However, avoid attempting several organization projects in one weekend. Instead, tackle smaller organization projects over many weekends for greater efficiency.


3. Clean refrigerator condenser coils. Dirty, dust-covered condenser coils require refrigerators to work harder to remove heat. A long-handled bristle brush and a vacuum make it easy to clean off the coils. Roll out the fridge and wipe it quickly, preventing unnecessary energy consumption.


4. Stock up on water filters.
The refrigerator ice maker and water dispenser filters should be replaced at least
every six months.


5. Check on emergency-prevention efforts. For example, replace the smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and test the batteries. Check the expiration dates on first-aid kits and fire extinguishers and replace them as needed. Review fire escape and other emergency plans.


6. Clean out dryer vents.
“Lint may be building up to dangerous levels in your dryer’s venting system,” said Hall. “ Dryer lint buildup restricts air flow and can result in a fire .” Therefore, the lint trap should be cleaned out after every load. Also, the dryer’s entire venting system must be cleaned out from the dryer to the outside. A dryer vent brush will assist with this.

7. Schedule professional furnace and air conditioner duct cleaning.
Cleaning the furnace and air conditioner ducts to help the air flow more freely. Air duct cleaning every five years is essential; homes with occupants who suffer from allergies may need this done more frequently. Yearly furnace cleans will save you thousands of dollars over the long haul.


8. Inspect home appliances for worn components and changes in performance. Take the time to inspect them and replace parts as needed to keep them running efficiently. Please pay attention to noise, the time required to complete their jobs, leaking and other performance changes.
