calgary condominiums: Would You Hire A Proctologist To Give You A Nose Job? - 09/17/10 08:38 AM
Both are doctors and surgeons but they deal with specific parts of the body at different ends none the less. If you wouldn't get a surgery done without a specialist why would you buy a home from someone who doesn't specialize in that area?  The anatomy of a condominium is different than a house. You are not only buying a property, you are buying a piece of a corporation with all of the assets and liabilities that corporation may incur. So you can see that it may be important to use someone that understands how the insides work. It is easier … (2 comments)

calgary condominiums: Red Flags for Buying a Condo - 04/05/10 12:53 PM
Red Flags for Buying a Condo
Condominium ownership is a very new alternative to traditional property ownership. The ability for a group of people to each own their own units, but share common expenses, and still live in harmony has created some huge benefits for buyers. However, if you didn’t know at least some of the benefits, then you likely wouldn’t be considering purchasing a condo in the first place. We will leave the benefits aside for now…
The items that most of our clients want to know about are the red flags. What items should I look a little more into before I purchase … (2 comments)

calgary condominiums: Your RRSP Can Help Make You a First-Time Homebuyer - 04/05/10 12:28 PM
 
 
Here’s a nice thought for hopeful first-time home-buyers – if you’ve been tucking away money into your RRSP, you may have that elusive down-payment. Your RRSP can help you make your house dreams come true. Under the Home Buyer’s Plan, you can tap your RRSP and borrow from yourself tax-free to help with your home purchase. You then pay yourself back later.

calgary condominiums: First-timers key to reviving market - 06/09/09 04:08 AM
 The expected return of first-time homebuyers to the marketplace is seen as key to the rejuvenation of Canada's housing sectors, says a real estate industry executive.
A growing number of newbies to home ownership-- considered the largest single buying segment--have been sitting on the sidelines since it became obvious Canada wasn't going to avoid the global recession, says Phil Soper, president and CEO of Brookfield Real Estate Services.

One of the key … (0 comments)

calgary condominiums: Buyer who hesitates ends up losing out. Low interest rates joining federal incentives - 06/09/09 04:03 AM

To jump or not to jump.
I guess the question that plagues new home buyers is "should we jump in now, or should we wait to see if the market is still dropping?"
Well, if you know someone in this situation, they may have already missed the bottom.
Let's take a few key indicators of what's going on in the market : - Because of the low interest rates there has been a flurry of new home buyers who didn't have to sell their home because they were renting.
People didn't want to list their homes because of the price … (0 comments)
