Going into our fourth month of the 2008 year, we all start to get a more certain felling as to how this year will "play out" for us. What I mean is, we should be getting over the "winter blues" and any preconceived ideas or notions we might have had.
Our provincial election came and past in mid March. The ruling party was elected again for the 36th year. Some people have said, "It is better to sleep with the devil you know, rather than the devil you do not know." No surprises here.
The Canadian dollar has levelled out in the high 90 cent range compared to the US dollar. We all knew it could not keep up close to the $1.10 mark. We are have adjusted to the lower 5% GST by now. So where am I going with these thoughts.
I strongly believe that a real estate asset will outperform a lot of other "conventional" and secure investments. I am seeing some of our larger and respected builders adjusting their offering prices for newly constructed units. With possession dates sometimes being 18 months "down the road," this might be a good time to look at some of the options offered by these local builders. Please contact me if you would like more information on any products offered by our local builders. I do my best to keep up to date with new products, new developments in the area and changing styles.
Here are a few quick links for you:The first is a quick link to Canada's number one real estate site for the general public - the following link will take you directly to all of the MLS properties in Canmore MLS.ca. This is a great place to start your search for Canmore real estate whether you are a buyer or seller. Of course my name will not be on all the properties that are for sale, but these are all co-operative listings and I am able to introduce you to these listings, send you more details and eventually represent you as you agent/associate should you decide to make a purchase. My twenty plus years of experience will be an advantage to you during any negotiations.
The second link is My Real Estate Choices for this Month. This month I have chosen two homes that will appeal to different buyer profiles.
