Edmonton used to be afraid of its cold, dark winters, but within the last 10 years, the level of optimism within the city has changed. Previously, a list like this would have been filled, from 1 to 5, with a variety of different ways to say "hide until the sun comes back." Now we fully embrace the snow and the cold, thanks in part to the many winter activities available to Edmontonians.
If you have plans to buy a home this year, I've got good news for you.
Whether you're a first time buyer or you're looking to upgrade into a larger home, the latest report from the Realtors Association of Edmonton has said that we are in a buyer's market. Overall sales have decreased by 9% when compared to 2014, but that has not affected the pricing of homes in the area. Contrary to what is to be expected, homes prices have actually increased year over year to about 1.9% overall from 2014. The economic decline has impacted the market, but it seems like Edmonton hasn't been hurt by these changes.

Working as a team, Patti and Chris helped us to sell our Belgravia home in a slow and flat market. The job of a realtor is to help the seller find an offer that can be accepted as fair and reasonable for the current market conditions or to help a buyer find a home they are pleased with at a price they are satisfied with. Patti and Chris helped us to arrive at a point where we were satisfied that the price being offered for our home reflected the realities of the current market. Patti and Chris know the neighborhood well and are well known in it. They were able to find a buyer who well understood and appreciated both the benefits and challenges of owning a home in our neighborhood and bring our house to the buyer's attention. We appreciated all of the help and consideration Patti and Chris offered us in going through the selling process and reaching the conclusion of a sale to a knowledgeable buyer. We can recommend Patti and Chris as diligent, reliable, trustworthy and, ultimately, effective.
