Buying Your New Home in Crowsnest Pass, Alberta

There are many homes for sale in the Crowsnest, according to the Lethbridge Real Estate Board. The Crowsnest promotes itself as the “Jewel of the Rockies”. It is a great place to live, raise a family, play golf, fish – enjoy the Alberta Rocky Mountain life. Come and become part of the ‘freedom loving’ mountain people of the Crowsnest!

There are still lots of choices. There is new construction, re-sales, and developments with lots ready-to-build. Sort of like the story of The Three Bears - three choices. Some are overpriced (my opinion), some priced right, and some priced where a negotiated agreement will bring a good price. The choices are many!

As a buyer choose a real estate agent who knows your specific target area. Remember, sellers pay the buyer agent's professional fee - not the buyer!

If you like a home and it is over priced you may have problems closing the deal. Why?
Because, if you are getting a mortgage the property will have to be appraised at the sales price. A lender is simply not going to "give" a loan for an inflated price.

If you are a first time home buyer and have questions about the process, let me know. I will provide the answers to all your questions or refer you to the one who can provide the answer.

This is a great time to buy in any one of our small towns (Bellevue/Hillcrest, Frank, Blairmore or Coleman), which make up the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass. The choices are many. Choose carefully!

If you are in the market for a home in the Crowsnest, give me a call. I would welcome a chance to be your Realtor of Choice!
