A young local couple is going to be contestants on the television show called Amazing Race Canada.  It is always great to see someone from your own city on these shows, or someone you are related to, or even just someone who your friends know.

How to Flip a House
 
     With the many television shows showing people who buy old houses and fix them up to sell at a profit, there are an endless number of people who wish they could do that.  It looks like easy money on tv.  Heck they buy a house that is half price because it is dirty, they hire slave labour to pull out the carpets and cupboards, the hire a cheap contractor to put it all back in new, then they grind that contractor and try to pay him only half of what they agreed to, then they put … (1 comments)

lethbridge: Cheap Lethbridge Real Estate - 06/15/16 04:40 AM
Cheap Lethbridge Real Estate
    
     An article published today in our National media discusses how the average home price across Canada has increased and is now sitting around $508,000.  That is half a million dollars.  Now this number is not a true reflection of most of Canada, as that number is significantly distorted by the Million dollar properties in Vancouver and Toronto markets.  Outside of those 2 markets, or even removing those 2 most high priced markets from the average would likely result in the real number falling to more like $300,000 average across the country.
     Here in Lethbridge, our real … (1 comments)

What To Do When You Get a Foreclosure Notice
 
     If you are a Lethbridge homeowner and you have been served a notice of foreclosure, you are probably scared and wondering what to do.  Let me help by giving you some direction.
 
The Bank does not want to repossess your house!
 
     A notice of foreclosure is served upon an Alberta homeowner typically after they have fallen behind on their mortgage payments for more than 90 days and have not been in communication with their bank or mortgage company.   Typically if you miss 1 payment, they will try to contact you by phone.  They … (2 comments)

lethbridge: Lethbridge Law Office - 06/09/16 03:20 PM
Lethbridge Law Office
There are several law offices in Lethbridge who are willing to work on real estate transactions.  In fact, the majority of our offices will do these transactions.  The reality is though that many of them really do not want to.  They only take that business because the do not want to lose clients to other firms.
 
Soon, there is a new law office opening in Lethbridge, one which will specialize in real estate only.  This new office will be able to close a real estate transaction quicker and more efficiently due to specializing in only real estate closings.  I expect … (0 comments)

lethbridge: What are Zero Lot Lines - Calgary, Alberta - 05/28/16 07:10 AM
Here is a blog that was posted by a guy who doesn't live too far away from me and helps to explain the concept of zero lot lines.  I recently had a client who came to me wanting to view  Lethbridge real estate who wrote an offer on a property like this.
What are Zero Lot Lines - Calgary, Alberta
Zero lot lines gained popularity in Calgary sometime in the late 70’s as the previously popular 50’ lots became more and more scarce and narrow lots became the order of the day. As the city grew in size and inched it’s … (0 comments)

University of Lethbridge Rated 3rd Best in Canada 2016
May 17, 2016    The University of Lethbridge once again continued to impress in the annual Macleans Magazine rankings of Undergraduate Universities in Canada.http://www.macleans.ca/education/best-universities-primarily-undergraduate-2016/
 
Last year the University of Lethbridge also placed in 3rd for overall ranking, scoring well again for reputation, but leaving a bit of room for improvement in "student satisfaction" which scored 11th overall.

Lethbridge Real Estate open house this coming long weekend. 
 
This great house will be available for view between 2pm and 4pm this coming May long weekend.  Located at 822 Aberdeen Place West, this fantastic family home is unique in that it has an absolutely massive pie shaped backyard.  In fact, you could probably build a triple garage back there and still have a yard larger than most homes in the same price range.

lethbridge: Moving to Lethbridge? - 05/15/16 07:39 AM

Are you thinking about moving to Lethbridge?
 
I get phone calls and emails from people who live in various parts of the country asking about retiring to Lethbridge, or moving here to attend school or for employment relocation.  Our city is attractive compared to many other cities.  Our weather is superior, our economy a bit stronger and more diverse, our community friendly, and our real estate prices are affordable.  A basic single family home in Lethbridge will cost a buyer only about $250,000, which is about $1250/month mortgage payment.

lethbridge: Search Engine Rankings - 05/12/16 04:45 PM
Do you track your own search engine rankings? 
 
I use a couple of different tools to monitor the ranking of many sites that I own.  I don't often bother checking them too regularly, but when I do I find it interesting to see which agents are ranking at the top.  In the past, I used to have the #1 ranked real estate website in my entire region and city.  When i switched my real estate brokerage that page disappeared and I ignored it for many years.
 
As a recent experiment, I build a new page.  A really cheap page, just to see how … (7 comments)

Lethbridge Real Estate - Student Housing

Photo: University of Lethbridge at sunset by Robert May
 
University of Lethbridge and the Lethbridge College attract thousands of students to the city each fall.  I believe the total number of students enrolled now is around 15,000 and I would estimate that at least half of those come from outside of the Lethbridge and move here just to attend school.
 
With this new influx in population the Lethbridge real estate rental market is strongly affected.  Rent prices shoot up and vacancy rates drop to absolute zero.  Literally every basement suite, duplex, apartment, … (3 comments)

Relocating to Lethbridge and wondering how much a home here is worth?
 
For those seeking to relocate to Lethbridge, Alberta a common question I am asked is "How much is the average home there?".
 
The short answer is that an average home based upon MLS sales data collected by our useless Lethbridge Real Estate Board is $263,000.  Now for anyone moving here from any of the major cities in Canada, that is probably about half of what homes are worth in your city.  For those moving from more rural markets, you should still find that fairly affordable, as Lethbridge is … (3 comments)
