Lethbridge Real Estate - Rental Properties
 
LAST CHANCE!!!
 
Just a heads up to all those Lethbridge real estate investors.  The rules regarding the financing of rental properties are changing in just over one months time.  After the rules change, it will no longer be possible to purchase revenue property with less then 20% downpayment.
 
However, if you act fast, you can still purchase under the existing rules.

I have lenders who will allow you to purchase rental properties with as little as 5% downpayment!  But you must act fast to take advantage of this before the rules … (0 comments)

Lethbridge real estate - commercial buildings
I have written about some commercial buildings in Lethbridge before, and also posted some pics and video of this particular piece of Lethbridge real estate.  An aticle was just published in a commercial online publication and I thought it was great.  The piece is a little more journalistically stylish then my usual ramblings, so I thought I would share it here on my Lethbridge real estate blog.

lethbridge real estate: The Canadian Government Hates Realtors - 02/16/10 12:53 PM
Well, not exactly, but it sure feels like it today.
 
As global markets are in turmoil, the Canadian real estate market remains strong and solid.  Recent stats have all pointed to month after month increases in prices in all markets coast to coast.  Following on the heels of more positive market news the Federal Goverment today acted to stamp some of the life out of the market.
 
This morning, Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty announced prudent changes to mortgage insurance rules intended to come into force on April 19, 2010. CAAMP was actively engaged in the discussions around these … (4 comments)

Is it still possible to find Lethbridge real estate at bargain prices?  Are there any good deals out there?
 
There are questions that my Lethbridge real estate clients and friends ask me on a regular basis.  The answer is overwhelmingly YES!  There are actually lots of good deals or bargain priced homes that come and go from the market in any given month.  There are not hundreds, there are not even dozens, but there are several each and every month.  Call Robert May at 403-330-3039 if this is the type of Lethbridge property you are interested in.

lethbridge real estate: Lethbridge Real Estate - New Listing 2430-19 Street North - 01/31/10 04:29 PM
I just listed this great Lethbridge half duplex and wanted to get it syndicated out to my blog and various websites tonight.
 

The property is located at 2430 - 19 Street North, Lethbridge.  This locations is excellent.  The home is surrounded by nice single family homes, right close to the park, and within walking distance of transportation and shopping.  This is a great neighborhood and there is virtually no traffic on the street out front.  A great place for a young family to live.
 
The home itself has had several upgrades recently.  The roof, windows, furnace, and hot … (0 comments)

Lethbridge Real Estate Video Series - Henderson Lake Park pt2
 
Yet another video in my attempt to record some of the attactions, facilities, and real estate in Lethbridge and area.  This short video is part 2 taken at Henderson Lake, located in the middle of South Lethbridge.
 
If you have been watching any of my other videos this will make sense, if not feel free to click back a few pages and catch up on them.  You will notice that I am a rookie video maker and not entirely comfortable talking to a camera yet, but what the heck....

Lethbridge Real Estate Video Series - Henderson Lake Park
 
Yet another video in my ongoing attempt to capture some of the sights, attractions, and real estate located here in Lethbridge, Alberta.  This video was also filmed the first day I was trying this out and so was using a terrible camera and it was still -20 degrees Celcius.  I might sound a bit uncomfortable talking to the camera, which would pretty much be exactly how I felt that day, lol.
 
If you are interested in Lethbridge, watch the video.  Feel free to leave comments or suggestion.  I have already … (2 comments)

Lethbridge Real Estate - Southmeadows Villas Adult Condos
 
Once again, another quick video I made of a Lethbridge real estate development.  This compound is called Southmeadows Villas, and it is an adult living condo complex.  The units in it are all semi-detached (duplex style) condominiums.  All units feature an attached double garage and the units on the south back onto the Fairmont lake.
 
If you are interested in Adult Living or Seniors Condos in Lethbridge, take a look at the quick video and give me a call.

Lethbridge Real Estate - Fairmont Village Green
Village Green is an adult living condo complex located in Fairmont Park subdivision or south Lethbridge.  This little complex is one of the most affordable seniors housing option available and they are hard to come by.  When these units come on the Lethbridge real estate market they sell fast.
 
Here is a quick little video I made from the entrance to the Lethbridge condos.  It is terrible quality and was made my first day trying to figure out how to do video, so please excuse the quality and my obvious discomfort talking on … (12 comments)

Lethbridge Real Estate - Manufactured Homes
Another short video I made, showing a local Lethbridge manufactured home dealer.  Here in Lethbridge we are fortunate to have 2 large manufacturers of prefabricated homes and several dealers who sell them.  These manufactured homes have come a long way from the days that they were referred to as 'trailers' or 'mobile homes'.
 
These Lethbridge homes are now build in a climate controlled indoor factory to the same construction standards as a site built home.  Many of the floor plans resemble those of local Lethbridge new home builders, with many of them designed to … (5 comments)

Lethbridge real estate - Coulee Creek subdivision
 
 

 
In my ongoing picture and video series of various neighborhoods in Lethbridge.  This is a pic of the entrance to Coulee Creek.  For those who do not live around here, the name probably sounds pretty weird.  A "coulee" is the name given to the valley through which a river flows.  This coulee valley was formed many years ago when the rivers where hundreds of times larger and eroded a much wider and deeper path.
 
In Southern Alberta, the coulees provide a break from the flat prairie landscape.  They are … (0 comments)

Happy New Years to all my friends, family, and followers here on activerain, facebook, twitter, etc.  If this message travels correctly it will appear on all of those sites at once.
 
2010 will bring some challenges to the local Lethbridge real estate market and also for Lethbridge mortgage financing.  The last 6 months of 2009 demonstrated that things are not moving fast and also that mortgage lenders are being more and more particular and difficult.
 
While lowest interest rates in recent history are still available, the documentation and requirements that the banks are asking for has seemingly increased.  The … (2 comments)

Lethbridge Character Homes in London Road
 
The City of Lethbridge is a fairly young city and as a result has very few 'old' pieces of real estate.  Our oldest homes in Lethbridge are about 100 years old, having been build in the early 1900's.  These old homes were build with style and character and are now highly sought after for this reason.  In Lethbridge character homes are primarily found just south of our downtown in an area called 'London Road'.  
 

 
 
Lethbridge London Road Real Estate is fairly desirable.  While there are still a few rough gems … (0 comments)

lethbridge real estate: Fraudulant Appraisals Contributed to The Housing Bubble - 12/14/09 12:34 PM
I just finished reading an interesting real estate article regarding the role that certified appraisals may have intentionally or unintentionally played in the creation of the now burst housing bubble in the US.  Here in Canada our real estate market did not suffer from the same situation.  In my Lethbridge real estate marketplace, we are even more insulated and have felt even less of the negative impact of the global economic troubles.
 
So here is the article, I am not sure that I am quick to believe the stats thrown out in the article, and you can check it out … (4 comments)
