Estimating the Market Value of Your Home

October 10th, 2017 by remax-realestate-stonyplain

Most real estate professionals will offer an estimated market value of your home or property when creating a listing contract. After all, you need to set a listing price. But it’s important to understand this is NOT a professional appraisal of your home. Only licensed real estate appraisers are permitted to professionally appraise your home.

What is a Comparative Market Analysis?

A Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is a method real estate professionals use to estimate the value of residential properties, which helps sellers set a listing price for their property. CMAs examine the prices at which similar properties in the same area have recently sold.

The report you are given must include a statement indicating:

  • the purpose of the report
  • that a real estate appraiser with a license from the Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) did NOT prepare this report
  • that it is NOT a real estate appraisal report
  • that no one should refer to or rely on the report as an appraisal report
  • that the report does not comply with RECA appraisal standards
  • that the report must not be used for financing, civil proceedings, income tax purposes, or financial reporting purposes

CMAs must only provide a range of value for the property, not an exact value. As a seller, the purpose of a comparative market analysis is to help you make a decision on how to price your property for sale or rent. You would then use the CMA’s range of value to set a listing price for your property. You cannot use the CMA to obtain mortgage financing for a property.

How To Choose The Right Realtor For You

October 5th, 2017 by remax-realestate-stonyplain

 

Whether your are buying or selling, it is very important that you research the Realtor that you choose to help you. Before signing a listing contract, take the time to meet with a few Realtors to see if they are the right fit for you. You do not have to sign with the first Realtor that walks through your door – do you homework and make sure that they are willing to work for you – and your home. We have compiled a list of questions to help you interview prospective Realtors.

 

  1. What are you going to do to entice buyers to view my property? Advertising is a key weapon in every agent’s arsenal. Where are they going to advertise, how often, what is their target market? Besides their sign on your front lawn, what else do they utilize for marketing?
  2. Will my home be marketed on Realtor.ca within days of signing the listing contract, or will I have to wait a period of time before this happens? Many buyers start their search by using this tool.
  3. Do you hire a professional photographer to photograph my home for marketing, or do you take the pictures yourself? A well photographed property communicates value to the prospective buyer – blurry, dark photographs do not do their best to communicate how inviting and bright a space can be. Buyers may skip over your property because of this.
  4. Open Houses – yea or ney? Realtors have differing opinions on open houses. It is all personal preference, but it is important to discuss with your potential Realtor their views on this.
  5. Comprehensive Market Evaluations – How does your potential Realtor plan to ensure that your home is properly priced? Do they pull a number out of a hat, or do they do a search for comparable properties in your area? Making sure that your Realtor provides you with as much information as possible to properly price your home is crucial.

 

Choosing an Realtor is an important decision. You want someone who represents YOUR interests first and foremost.

Changes to the Condo Property Act

September 26th, 2017 by remax-realestate-stonyplain

If you are thinking about buying a condo, or you already own a condo, there are some changes that have been proposed to the Alberta condo property act that might be put into place soon.

These changes will come in two stages. The first stage deals with buyers of newly-built condos and properties that have been converted into condos. The second stage addresses how condo boards are governed, their voting practices and procedures, and insurance regulations.

Numerous engagement sessions were held in July and August of 2017 inviting Albertans to provide feedback on condo governance issues, and an online survey was set up after the open house engagement sessions were complete.

If you are considering buying a condo – we would suggest doing a bit of research into the proposed changes.
