statistics_305According to the latest market report from REALTORS® Association of Edmonton, the average selling price of a home in Edmonton climbed 2.2% to $335,187 in the first three months of this year, compared to $328,094 during the first three months of 2011.

“Other markets, such as Toronto, are reporting feverish real estate activity involving multiple offers and unconditional offers but our market is calm, orderly and slowly evolving,” commented Doug Singleton, President of the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton. “Listing activity is up when compared to last year but sales and inventory are down which could indicate that market activity will pick up markedly as the summer progresses.”

Buying your first home is an exciting but also daunting task. While you are trying to find the perfect home for you and your family, you have to worry about the paperwork, technicalities, and legalities. Working with Chris, that part of the home-buying process was taken care of. When my brother and I bought our first home, Chris took the time to explain the process to us step by step, and I felt the process was really simplified. He explained all the details, provided advice as required, and answered all our questions, sometimes before we even asked. He worked around both our fulltime schedules, and was constantly in contact with us, even if it had to be early morning, later in the evening, weekdays, or weekends. What I appreciate the most about Chris is the fact that he is devoted to his clients. The first time I saw my home, we did not actually go in to see it, because there was an offer on it. Chris followed up on it and a couple of days later he let us know that it was back on the market. We put in a competing offer and unfortunately the sellers went with someone else’s offer. Yet again Chris kept us in the loop about this house, and for whatever reason, the sale did not go through. This time around, the sellers accepted our offer, and everything worked out. If it was not for Chris’ diligence and dedication, we might have missed out on what was meant to be ours. It is a beautiful home and I thank Chris so much for his hard work. He helped us find exactly what suited our family. He was always available and easy to get a hold of. He pointed out both pros and cons of each house we looked at, and I appreciated his honesty. It was not just about making a sale, but helping us find what we needed. I would without doubt recommend him to anyone buying a home, whether it is their first home or not, and I will definitely be coming back to Chris if I need to buy or sell a house in the future.
