Thu, 12 Dec by Geoff Antrum & Matt Antrum (Father & Son Team)

How To Negotiate a Successful Offer – Calgary Buyers & Sellers Need Balance!

  • Seller & Buyer need to be motivated and willing to negotiate an Offer that is fair to both parties.
    If a balance is reached the Buyer and Seller are more likely be successful.
  • Seller & Buyer must be aware of Calgary Housing Market. Is it a Buyer’s market?
    Is it a Seller’s market? Or is it a balanced market? Talk to your REALTOR®.
  • Both parties need to know what comparable homes are selling for in community.
    And how does the property being negotiated “fit in” to the local community sold data?
  • If one party feels as though the other party is not acting in good faith and is not
    negotiating in an equitable manner no successful Offer will be agreed.
  • Buyers & Sellers need to be objective and put themselves in the other person’s position before they act.
    For agreement both parties have to be prepared to compromise.
  • Finally, listen to your REALTORS® recommendations, who will give you guidance on
    the negotiations and lead you to a successful accepted Offer. Please check out our website at

Buying a Home with CIR REALTY in Calgary in 2013 and 2014

Tue, 10 Dec by Geoff Antrum & Matt Antrum (Father & Son Team)

Calgary 2013 Housing Market. What Buyers need to Know?
Homes & Condos under $500,000 are selling faster than past few years. Its a Sellers market. So good quality homes that are priced right will not be on the market for very long. A matter of days in a few key areas of Calgary. There can be multiple Offers and homes can sell at List price. Buyers who keep waiting for a home to drop in price can be disappointed since it could easily sell if its close to market value. This is where Buyers need a REALTOR®  to guide them on price and market value. Buyers can get caught up in the hype and over pay. So speak to your REALTOR® about market value for community you are buying in. Ask your REALTOR® what is the Average Drop Price for community you are planning to buy in.

What do we anticipate for the 2014 Calgary Real Estate Market?  The following extract from a BMO News Article sums up the forecast for Calgary in 2014……

” Calgary has reclaimed its title as the strongest major housing market in the country after correcting several years ago, says a new report released by BMO Economics. The report, Canadian Housing Update: Tale of Four Cities, examined the state of the housing markets in Canada’s four largest cities: Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal. Sal Guatieri, senior economist with BMO Capital Markets, said listings are lean in the city, giving sellers the upper hand right now on prices.“Three main factors. Strong economy. Strong population growth. And good affordability. Those are all driving Calgary’s housing market now and likely in the future,” said Guatieri.

“We don’t see bad things happening to Calgary’s economy any time soon, barring a big drop in oil prices for example. And we think Alberta for one will definitely lead economic growth perhaps for the next couple of years riding the energy boom. As a result, Canadians from across the country will likely continue to migrate to Alberta and Calgary looking for work. That can always support the housing market.”

Calgary is an exciting city to live in. Geoff Antrum and Matt Antrum are here to assist Buyers and Sellers make real estate investment choices that are based on the clients
best interests. Please call us and check out our website at
