South West Calgary Home For Sale

When is the best time to sell my home?

There is certainly truth to the belief that spring is the best time to sell a property.  Often, in early spring it is a great time to be a seller as there is less competition on the market and an upswing in buyers out looking for a new home.  Historically spring is the best time to sell.  The busiest months are typically April to June.  Sometimes that season can extend from March to about mid July.  Around mid July, especially in Calgary we begin to see the number of sales decrease as Stampede starts up.  Often there is a lull in sales activity during this time as people are more concerned about enjoying Stampede and their summer vacations then they are about buying a home....


Altadore Home Calgary

My home's assessment has a direct relation to what my home is worth.


This assumption is a myth.  When the city ofCalgary mailed you your property assessment at the start of the year it may have been close to the value of your home on July 1 the year before.  That is when the city makes it's assessment, 6 months prior to you receiving the written copy; likely not what your home is worth now.  Sometimes the number can be higher or lower then the actual value of your home.  The market, the buyers determine the sale price of your home.  The city determines the amount of taxes that you have to pay based on your assessment.  Most of the time when you go to sell, your sale price and assessment price are not the same....


Cougar Ridge Calgary Olympic Park


Another summer is upon us and the trails are finally dry at the Eastlands area of Canada Olympic Park.  It seems like everyday there are more people on the trails enjoying the long days.  I have also started to see a lot of #savetheslopes signs springing up in Cougar Ridge as well.  Don't forget to check out www.savetheslopes.org and sign the petition to keep the Eastlands area the way it is now vs the retail and housing development that is proposed.


With the leaves green and the trails dry it is a great time to be biking, hiking or walking your dog in the Paskapoo Slopes area.  We moved to Cougar Ridge so that we could be closer to this area.  The trails that are available are so easily accessed...
