Calgary Year End Recap
This year, in Calgary, and according to CREB®, we saw the sales go as planned, with a drop in the beginning of the year balancing out the gains later on. What we didn't anticipate was that the difficulty in finding houses for sale would last longer than expected. This continued to make it a good time for sellers, and home prices increased more than we thought. One reason for this was more people moving here than we predicted, especially from Ontario.

Even though interest rates went up, our real estate stayed reasonably affordable. This kept demand strong for more expensive homes, so there wasn't a need to lower prices in the high-end market. Recently, there have been more homes listed for sale, and we expect this trend to continue into next year. However, fixing the supply issue will take more time.

Pros of Selling Your Home During the Holidays
Many homeowners think that spring is the ideal time to sell real estate. Mostly because people tend to stay put in winter and get caught up in holiday activities, making them less likely to consider buying a new home.

However, selling during the holidays has its benefits as well:

• Lower Housing Inventory
• More Serious Buyers
• Warm and Cozy Staging Feeling
• Festive Neighbourhoods are Inviting
• Year-End Job Transfers
• End-of-Year Tax Breaks

So, if you can't wait until the weather warms up to get your house on the market, you can take advantage of some of winter's unique upsides.

Sold for 4% over asking price!
I helped Sean and his family sell their spotless two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo unit in the established and desirable community of Cedarbrae. A beautiful carefree living space with bright, open concept floor plan with a generous and private south-facing veranda.

We waited four days before considering offers, and in the end, it sold for almost 4% more than the asking price because we had multiple interested buyers.

Thank you Sean for choosing me as your realtor, it has been a pleasure assisting you with the selling of your home. Your confidence in my services means a lot, and I am thrilled that we could achieve success together.

Congratulations and best of luck on your future endeavours!
