lethbridge real estate: Lethbridge Real Estate Enters Seasonal Slowdown - 11/29/09 07:05 PM
Lethbridge real estate sales and listings traditionally slows down this time of year.  As the first permanent snow begins to cover the ground and the holidays near, there are a few things that happen to alter the marketplace.  One of the first things that happens is that the number of new listings drops off.  Not a lot of people choose to move this time of year because of the season and temperatures.  Also, many of the listed homes in Lethbridge which have not sold and have sat for some time on the market often expire unsold or are removed from the … (1 comments)

If you are looking for a house to rent in Lethbridge, or are a landlord trying to rent your Lethbridge house, this is some good info.  I originally posted it to my Lethbridg real estate blog several months back, but wanted to bring it back to the front page, as Christmas season seems to be a time of the year that fire safety is a big concern.  So here goes....

I wanted to make a new Lethbridge real estate website that I could use for doing some testing of some fancy geek technology that I have been messing around with lately.  Of course, when you are setting up a website primarily for experimentation and it is in total development, you don't want to spend a ton of money on it.  I have other Lethbridge real estate websites, but wanted one specifically for syndicating listings out.

Clearly Lethbridge

Today I had a meeting with Doug, a salesman for Clearly Lethbridge, a new online directory and marketing website that has launched in Lethbridge.  The intention of the site seems to be to create an online directory of local businesses and to act as a central hub which will help to increase the search engine optimization and placement of each of the advertisers through the cooperative efforts of all.  This is much like many of the online directories which attempt to do the same thing for businesses within specific categories, except that in the case of Clearly Lethbridge, … (12 comments)

lethbridge real estate: More to a Mortgage than a low rate! - 10/05/09 05:09 PM
There's more to a mortgage than a low rate
by Talbot Boggs Monday, September 28, 2009provided by
(Special) - Homeowners and buyers are in a rather enviable position these days. Interest rates are at historic lows and the cost of borrowing for a home is about as low as it can get.
That's great news. But it's not the only thing homeowners and purchasers need to think about their mortgage.
There are a number of other features to consider before signing up for a mortgage and what is probably the largest debt that most Canadians will ever take on in their … (0 comments)

lethbridge real estate: Century 21 Lethbridge - 09/29/09 12:20 PM
Over the past couple decades there have been a couple different Lethbridge Century 21 offices come and go locally.  There was a time when Century 21 was one of the industry leaders in the US real estate marketplace.  Their 'Gold Jacket' was not only a recognizable trademark but a bit of an icon for the industry.  Since that wardrobe item became a bit out of style, the brand franchise has not had the same recogniztion it once had.
 
Several years ago I was approached to take on the Local franchise for Lethbridge Century 21.  At the time, the company sales … (1 comments)

With economic recovery firmly underway, an end to these fantastic interest rates may come sooner rather than later.  Of course they will not shoot up rapidly overnight, however the trend is now flat and expected to be up and not down, going forward.  For consumers who are trying to pick a term for their next financing this presents some important info to consider.

lethbridge real estate: Lethbridge For Sale By Owner - 09/27/09 07:24 PM
Thinking about selling your house?
Think you will save money by trying it on your own and without professional representation?
 
The desire to sell your own home comes from wanting to save money.  Many people estimate how much their home is worth and then figure somewhere between 4 to 7% of that would be paid out in commissions to call up their neighborhood real estate pro.  The thought of paying 5, 10, 15 thousand dollars to have someone sell the property for you sometimes seems excessive.
 
I agree, it is a substantial amount of money.  However, there are some … (3 comments)

This has been a crazy month for me so far.  I have been interviewed by 3 major media outlets who were gathering info for various articles they were writing. 
 
Canadian Real Estate Investor Magazine was the first to make contact with me a couple of weeks ago.  They often write pieces about various regions in the country and what the rental and revenue market is like.  I really enjoyed talking to this reporter, as it made me even more aware of the things that investors from outside our area are interested it.
As a long time resident of Lethbridge, it … (1 comments)

There seems to come a point in most people's lives when the confines of living in the City are too much and they start to consider moving to the countryside.  These people often start shopping around for a Lethbridge acreage property that is close to the city.  The majority of these shoppers want a property that has some space to it, lots of trees, a modern home, a shop or some outbuildings, and town water and sewer of course.  Not only do they expect to find that property within 5 minutes of Lethbridge, they expect that it will only cost around … (0 comments)
