This area has been my home for many years. Slave Lake has some of the largest and most beautiful Sandy Beaches in the entire Province! Visit us and see, You may just decide to stay awhile...
Slave Lake is known as Alberta's largest lake and has some of the nicest beaches of any lake in the province. It also hosts the Alberta Sand Castle Championships in July of every year. Enjoy fishing year round, sailing, water sports or picnicking on the beach with your family. The lake is for everyone to enjoy and because there is very little development around it, it is kept in its natural state. It is quite beautiful....See for yourself!
Buying & Selling Tips
Clean up - Fix up
First Impressions are Lasting- a bright cheery home invites inspection. Keep your lawn trimmed and edged; the flower beds cultivated. Be sure that windows are sparkling. Remove ice and snow from the walk and verandah in the wintertime.
A home inspection by a professional home inspector is recommended when buying a house. It will put your mind at ease and uncover any unforseen problems so they can be dealt with prior to your buying the house.
Let your RE/MAX agent discuss the selling price, terms, and other factors with the prospective purchaser. The salesperson has been trained and has experience, so let that person bring your negotiations to a satisfactory conclusion. Therefore, during the showing of your home either relocate to another area of the house (away from immediate activity) or, temporarily vacate your home.
We often receive requests for rental accommodations. Below are a few suggestions…
-For starters try contacting all 3 Real Estate Brokerages in Slave Lake, (Us) RE/MAX (780-849-4085), Century 21 (780-849-2229), and Royal Le Page (780-805-3111). Their front desk staff often have a list of possible private rentals supplied to them by the owners. (The front desk staff are usually more aware of these things than the individual Realtors!)
- Always end your conversations with, "do you know of anyone else who may know of a rental?" This often generates additional leads.
- Please find attached a list of the various apartments and townhouses around town. Contacting them directly may lead you to a pending vacancy.
- Another option is to contact our local radio station (92.7 FM), Phone 780-849-5777 on Monday to Friday mornings at 9:04am our local time (after the morning news). You can advertise for free on the air and ask for a rental property. This is called the "tradio" or "trading post", and many people tune in to listen, buy sell or give away items, and it is free!
- You can also access our local Paper the Lakeside Leader online. It has a classified section, and a rental accommodations section; copy and paste the link below into your webrowser's search bar, it should take your there: http://www.lakesideleader.com/rental.html
- Sometimes a local Builder is aware of a rental or two as they circulate among others involved in the housing industry. The web address below should take you to a list of local Businesses and Contractors. http://ab.allpages.com/slave-lake/construction/builders-contractors-1-of-2/
This last suggestion is a long shot, but the more people you contact, and are aware of your need, the better chance you have of finding what you require! Wish you all the best in your search!
