If you’re going to be out-of-town but need to sell your home, you might be
concerned about listing your property while you’re away. After all, you won’t
be around to show your property, schedule viewings, consider offers, etc.

While it’s ideal that you be close to home when you’re selling, there’s no
reason why you can’t list your property, even if you’re going to be out-of-town.
When it comes to communications and document sharing, technology is a
wonderful thing! While you’re away, you can utilize phone, email, file sharing
apps (such as Dropbox), e-signing apps (such as DocuSign) and, online
meeting apps (such as Zoom).

For viewing appointments, a secure lockbox (with your key inside) can be
installed so buyers can be shown your property.

City of Calgary, January 4, 2021 –

With December sales of 1,199, this is the highest December total since 2007.

"Housing demand over the second half of 2020 was far stronger than anticipated and nearly offset the initial impact caused by the shutdowns in spring. Even with the further restrictions imposed in December, it did not have the same negative impact on housing activity like we saw in the earlier part of the year," said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.

Attractive interest rates along with prices that remain lower than several years ago have likely supported some of the recovery in the second half of the year. However, it is important to note that annual sales activity declined by one percent compared to last year and remain well

If you’re thinking about selling in the spring, don’t wait until the new year to
start planning. In fact, you’ll save yourself a lot of work and get ahead of the
game if you start planning now.
What’s that old saying? The early bird gets the worm! In this case, by starting
the process this month, you’ll be in excellent shape when you’re ready to list in
the spring.
Here are just a few examples of what you can do in December to get the
process started:
- Walk your property and note any maintenance issues that need attention.
- Decide which items to stow or sell to declutter your home.
- Determine what improvements you’ll need to make in order for your home
to look great to buyers (i.e. painting.)
- Find out approximately how much your property will likely sell for

City of Calgary, December 1, 2020 –

For the sixth month in a row, sales in the Calgary market recorded a year-over-year gain.

Sales growth over the past several months has been the strongest seen in the past five years, but the activity has not been strong enough to offset the pullbacks from the spring. Year-to-date sales remain over three per cent lower than last year's levels.

New listings continue to slow, reducing inventory in the market. On a year-to-date basis, new listings have eased by nearly ten per cent and are at the lowest level recorded since 2001. This has reduced the oversupply that has been impacting the market for nearly five years.

"The gains in sales in the latter part of this year have been a bit surprising considering the

When you’re shopping for a new home, you probably want the property to be
as “move in ready” as possible. That way, you can... well... just move in!
However, there are a lot of fantastic properties on the market that need some
work. For example, you might see a home that has everything you need, but
the kitchen is long overdue for a renovation. Or, you might view a property
that requires a lot of repairs and painting — tasks that, at first glance, seem
You don’t want to just pass on a property that might be a great buy. On the
other hand, you don’t want to purchase a home, only to end up with more
renovations, repairs and expenses than you anticipated.
What’s the solution? Here’s an idea.
When you view a home that needs work, make a note of exactly

Although we’ve already gotten our first doses of snow, winter is (technically) still just around the corner, with many more cold days and tons of the white stuff to come.

Unfortunately, winter is also the season that tends to reveal and worsen issues within the home, so there’s no time like the present for some proactive maintenance. A bit of extra effort now could save you countless headaches when temperatures drop.

Here’s a handy checklist to get you started:

Gutters and downspouts

Make sure they are clear of debris, as blocked gutters can lead to overflows and ice dams. It is also a good idea to check gutters for sagging sections or missing brackets and point downspouts away from your home’s foundation to reduce the risk of leaks and
