Taking the "scary" out of real estate

Continued softening for single family home sales in April. The Lethbridge real estate market

experienced a 22% decrease month over month and down 14% year to date over 2013. Total

units (including all market segments ie: condos / manufactured homes etc.) sold so far this

year is down 12% over 2013. The soft start to 2014 continues then. The total number of single

family homes listed is down 11% year to date notwithstanding the fact that the city's largest

home builder has listed all their homes slated for completion within the calendar year on MLS.

The average sale price of a single family home in April was $303,980.00 up from the annualized

average of $293,544.00. We are good and ready for the much anticipated arrival of the spring

market here in Lethbridge.

Taking the "scary" out of real estate

Even homeowners who have moved a few times can be intimidated by the real estate

market in general, and the buying and selling process in particular.

First of all, making a decision to sell your home can be difficult. There are so many

questions, such as:


• Is "now" a good time to list?

• How much can you expect to get for your property?

• How long will it take to sell – and what if it doesn't?

Then there's the buying and selling process:

• How do you prepare your home for sale?

• How do you find homes that meet your criteria and are within your price range?

• How do you prepare your home for viewings?


Yes, there's a lot to think about. That's why finding a good REALTOR® who is an expert

on the local market is so important.


A good REALTOR® will help you understand the market, the current market value of

your home, and what you can expect should you decide to list.


A good REALTOR® will also walk you step-by-step through the home selling and

buying process, and work hard to make sure everything goes smoothly.


So if you're considering buying or selling a home, take the time to find a good

REALTOR®. It makes all the difference.
