Selling Your Crowsnest Pass Home in a Buyer's Market

I will be the first to admit this is not the best of times to be a seller in the Crowsnest Pass area of southwestern Alberta.

I spoke with a potential buyer this week. They had purchased their home at the height of the seller's market several years back. But they understand the situation. Their attitude is...

We will make it (money) on the new home.

Sure, they will be keeping their current property as a rental unit until the market changes (and it eventually will!). However they know that there are bargains to be found and, over the long haul, hope to see a return on the new home later. Of course there is no guarantee that property will gain in value but it almost always does! (And with the vast potential the Crowsnest Pass has, it most inevitably will.)

So, if you are looking to sell in the Crowsnest, there are a couple of things to be aware of from the start.
  • Prices are lower now than they were a year or two back.
  • There are still builders out there who are selling new construction at some very attractive prices.
  • And, lastly, it is ALWAYS PRICE!

It is not impossible to sell in this buyer's market. As long as you are aware of the environment in which you have chosen to sell.

If you are considering selling your Burmis, Bellevue/Hillcrest, Frank, Blairmore or Coleman home, I would be honoured if you contacted me. I would welcome a chance to discuss my marketing efforts on your behalf.
