Thanks Tinch, it's not as bad as people think, people are still picking up some nice homes at good prices.

BUYING OR SELLING IN A CALGARY BUYERS MARKET

BUYING OR SELLING IN A CALGARY BUYERS MARKET 


Our market in Calgary is still a buyer’s market, but well priced homes are still getting multiple offers on them, believe it or not. A buyers market can refer to the point in the market where sales have been slow and the inventory is on the market for a long time. Sales could be on the way back up, and to be fair January is a seasonal low sale time for the market. You need to step in and purchase whilst sellers are still more realistic.


As a seller, you do not need to be unhappy that it is a buyer’s market. A buyer’s market does not mean that your home won’t sell. It just means that your home may not sell for what you are expecting for it. Therefore, if you are planning on selling your home in a buyer’s market, abandon all sentiments and set realistic expectations by looking at recent sales of comparable properties.


If you are not happy with the statistics regarding recent sales of comparable properties, you might want to wait until the market turns in your favour. As a seller in a buyer’s market, you need to be very motivated from the beginning itself, otherwise your property may end up languishing in the market. Only put your home up for sale in a buyer’s market if you are a very serious seller.

As a buyer, you will get to pick from many options in a buyer’s market.


However, this does not mean you should skip your research. Evaluate all your options – in fact, during a buyer’s market, prized locations which were earlier not available within your budget may open up. You could choose to seize the opportunity and enter the best areas while you have the chance.


Our advice is that you should move forward a look for good buys in this buyer’s market after having a team talk with us. We provide real time data that will help you find the best deals in today’s market.
