Lethbridge Real Estate
Recent statistics on the local real estate market in Lethbridge seem to give somewhat conflicting evidence in comparison to what many of my fellow industry members have been telling me lately about the status of many of their property listings.  For the past month the number of showings by potential home buyers has been notably less.  This is despite the fact that we recently hosted our annual Parade of Homes event which showcases all of the new home construction by the Lethbridge home builders.  This often something which stimulates market interest and gets many home owners out of … (0 comments)

Retire to Lethbridge
 
Many years ago it was quite customary for southern Albertans to retire to the Okanogan or to Vancouver Island.  Heck, last time I was out in Nanimo I happened to run across 2 real estate people who I knew from back when they sold houses in Lethbridge.  BC attracted a lot of Albertans due to the weather and scenery.
 
This trend has seemingly come to a complete halt in recent years and in fact has reversed.  There are now many of these retirees moving to Lethbridge.  This includes people who are coming back home again and … (5 comments)

Lethbridge Real Estate - Want to Sell?
 
So you are the owner of some property in Lethbridge and you are thinking of selling it, or worse, you absolutely need to sell it.  If this situation sounds like yours, you might want to read the rest of this post.
 
There are tons of new gimmicks, techniques, and innovative methods that people are trying to convince home sellers will get their house sold faster and for more money.  The reality is that ALL of these methods are complete crap.  Sounds harsh?  It is true.

Lethbridge Real Estate - Where is the Market headed?
 
Local home prices have seemingly stabilized in the short term.  However, each day I watch the new property listings come onto the MLS market and watch the sales drop off the market.  As an example, here is what happened today in Lethbridge.
There were 15 new listings in the City.  There were 3 sales went final, and there were 4 listings cancelled, which commonly means they are firing their Realtor and looking for a better one or else have decided to not sell.
 
The net effect of today's activity is … (2 comments)

As a result, the floor plans and the construction of these homes is fairly modern.  This area provides a nice affordable alternative the the new construction areas, as this area is fully developed already … (0 comments)

     Just like the song, "sign, sign, everywere a sign" it seems that there are more lawn signs on Lethbridge real estate these days than at any point in our history.  Our busiest season for home selling has come and gone and yet the number of houses for sale in our city remains high.  This is troubling for home sellers, but good for home buyers.
 
     Lethbridge is not used to having such a large inventory of homes on the market and it is a new thing for a buyer to have so much selection to choose … (0 comments)

It is that time of year again in Lethbridge.  After the weekend the children will return to school.  The busy part of the Lethbridge real estate season will end its summer buzz that seems to happen every year as families scramble to move households across the city or province during the brief 2 month summer break.
