Industry know-how

To be honest, you won't see as many transactions as a REALTOR® does. An average family buys/sells Real Estate every 5 to 10 years. This is because when you buy a house, you're looking to create a home. You want your family to grow in it and you're only going to look to move from it if your family has outgrown it due to a baby on the way or kids growing up (upsizing) or the house has become too big due to the kids leaving for university or buying their own property (downsizing). This means that you probably don’t have a lot of experience with the ins and outs of real estate.  On the flip side of things, REALTORS® have the experience and education to get things done within the industry. They handle contracts and the real estate process

THIS CALGARY HOME FEATURES A DREAMY ENSUITE YOU'LL WANT FOR YOURSELF

This Calgary Home Features a Dreamy Ensuite You'll Want for Yourself

Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired design meets open-concept living in this prairie home.

The first step in making a house a home is curating a space that exudes serenity, balance and, of course, privacy. Your home is your retreat from the outside world: a place to recharge and connect with family and friends. Wouldn’t it be nice if the design of the house itself reflected these values?

Brookfield’s exciting development, Artesia at Heritage Pointe, does just that. A quiet estate-only community located only minutes away from the heart of the bustling Seton Urban District, Artesia features homes that have been designed with both style and livability in mind. From

When looking at purchasing a home, one thing that many people are concerned about is the ability to put a down payment on the property. A 20% down payment of the purchase price of the home is typically required. If a 20% down payment is not doable, then a 5% option is available. However, you are then required to have mortgage insurance through CMHC to be able to qualify for the mortgage.

Regardless if it is a 5% or 20% down payment, the government of Canada allows home buyers to use their RRSPs to purchase a home without a penalty for withdrawing the RRSPs This is called Home Buyer’s Plan or HBP.

However, before you withdraw anything, the following conditions must be met:

1)     The maximum amount you can withdraw from your RRSPs per year is

What if your Ideal Home Isn't Available?

Imagine you're looking for a new home. You have a list of all the features you want, just like you would have a grocery shopping list. However, when you explore the homes currently on the market, none meets all your criteria.

What do you do? You have a few good options.

First, you can take a second look at your list. Does your new home need every single feature on it? Are there one or two features you can do without? For example, can you settle for a smaller kitchen assuming the property has everything else you want?

Often, buying a home that's close to perfect is perfect enough. 

Second, consider what features you might be able to add to a home later, by way of a renovation or other improvement. If

When buyers come to see your home, the first thing they notice is how your property looks from the curb. That first impression is powerful and lingering. If buyers don't like what they see, it can influence how they judge the rest of your property, regardless of how great it looks on the inside.

You definitely want to do whatever you can to boost curb appeal. Here are six affordable ideas to consider: 

  1. Driveway sealing. This makes the pavement look darker and less faded. It also helps cover up some of the cracks. Sealing won't give you the "brand new" look of repaving, but it's close — and significantly less expensive.
  2. Exterior window washing. Washing the front windows makes them look clean and bright. In fact, the effect can be stunning.

Looking for a REALTOR® can be a difficult process. Sometimes it seems like every family and friend recommends someone, so where how do you narrow it down? I always recommend starting with core values. When you're looking for your next home, you want to work with someone who understands and aligns with your values. My core values are health, honesty, wisdom and courage. Staying true to those values, I love helping people to live fuller, happier and stronger lives. I love helping people live better! I believe that living in a home that works for you and your lifestyle is a key cog in living better. 

 

After values, you want a REALTOR® with knowledge and local experience. I have been helping families in the Edmonton area find their perfect homes for

With every house that we see on the market, people always have their designated areas that they prefer to look in whether that is due to work, children's schooling, activities, lifestyle or more. Even if we don't truly know the community, we may just like it due to convenience or that particular "something". Every listing that I (Daniyal Nasiri) have, I look to answer that underlying question that may arise for you; "Why this community?". 

So lets get to it!
