Dear Friends and Partners,

The last couple weeks have started to show a burst of new properties hit the market.
Although many of the multi-units ones are still far from an ideal buy, its encouraging to see some variety.

What we’re finding is that with the pent up demand for investors, any halfway decent property (that is priced right) will get multiple offers within 2 days of list.

This is a key time to know what you want to buy, where, your maximum purchase price and what kind of offer to write. If you’re looking for a house the same notes apply, but you have better selection and slightly less pressure.

The townhouse resale market remains plentiful and there are many good opportunities to be found with a lot less pressure.

Hot Edmonton Market Leads to Bidding Wars

By Staff Writers, Global News, April 2nd, 2014

EDMONTON — Spring is a traditionally busier time for the real estate market, but a new trend is emerging.
Homes that have hardly been on the market are being quickly snapped up by over-bidding buyers.

It was the perfect set-up for Sean Pateman, who was looking to sell his Lewis Estates home. After being on the market for only one day, it had already garnered five showings.

“I knew the market was hot right now,” he said. “Figure, I’d throw it out there and see what happens.”  FOLLOW THIS ARTICLE


Alberta economy the envy of most regions in Canada

By Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary Herald, April 9th, 2014

CALGARY - Alberta’s economic performance since the 2008-09 downturn has been the envy of most regions in Canada as the province will lead the country in growth this year and in 2015, says a report released Wednesday by TD Economics.

“Healthy gains in oil production – just under 10 per cent average annual increases over the 2009-13 period – combined with a surge of oilsands investment has fueled economic activity,” said the report. “The June 2013 flooding that immediately disrupted provincial economic activity has had the perverse effect of stimulating economic growth since the second half of 2013 through reconstruction activity and a bounce back in output. This has helped to create a strong handoff in 2014.”  GRAB THIS STORY
