At first I couldn’t believe my own eyes when I saw the results of the latest real estate research that I have just completed. What I will share with you here will really shock you and it will definitely make you wonder why nobody is telling you this.

Okay, here is what I had stumbled upon. The whole global economy has been going though recession for the last few years, and Calgary received its share for sure of loosing jobs, decreasing real estate prices, etc…

In 2010 and recently I have been in conversation with many homeowners who happened to buy a property on the peak of our most recent real estate boon in Calgary. The challenge they are facing now is that they would like to sell their property. Because house prices have declined since, they can’t afford to sell or in many cases they have to bring cash to the table. At the end of the day in almost all cases they have told me that they will just wait for the market to go up again then sell.

This thought just wasn’t making sense for me because what is going to cause the housing market to rapidly take off again? There seems to be more foreclosures on the market than ever before, interest rates are on the rise (we have to start paying for the “bail-out” incentives at point), plus the government is toughening up on the mortgage qualification rules.

But let’s be the Devil’s Advocate here for a moment. Let’s assume that the home owner will wait because that is what their intuition is telling them to do. The big question is, how long will they have to wait for? The answer will depend on many variables, but realistically speaking we can probably reflect on history and see if we can draw a lesson from there.

Calgary’s last noticeable real estate boom came to a peak in 1981 and that that yearr the average price of real estate was $ 107,878 and for the next four years it kept on dropping and didn’t stop until it lost about 25% in value. In 1985 the average sold price of a home bottomed out at $ 80,183. If we stop our calculations here it’s already bad enough with loosing 25% of our investment dollars. Do you agree?

The truth is that money has a dirty little secret that nobody pays attention to. It’s called inflation. Imagine that you have a bucket with a hole on the bottom of it that is full of cash and the money in it keeps flowing out at the rate of inflation. It doesn’t matter how much you put in at the top, you can never plug the hole.

Let’s say that you agreed to sell your property in 1985 for $ 80,183 at a loss of 25%. The problem is that now the value of your $ 80,183 also decreased by 31.56% over the 4 years. The reality is that you have lost 25% + 31.56% = 56.56% in just 4 years. Crazy isn’t?

In other words, if you would have just invested your cash ($ 107,878) in 1981 into a basic investment account like a GIC today then you would have accumulated a saving of $ 141,920 by 1985.

The fact is that the $ 141,920 in 1985 equals to $ 107,878 when compared to 1981 or (and here comes the shocking part) if you would wanted to break even with you real estate investment after 4 years then you would have needed to sell for $ 141,920 to have the same value of money on hand. The truth is that your actualized loss equals to 56.56% or $ 61,737 if you purchased on the top and sold at the bottom.

What is the lesson here?

The moral of my research is that if you bought a piece of property in 1981 and you listened to your feelings in contrast to knowing how money actually works, then you would have been waiting for 24 years before your investment broke even. It’s not a typo, it took until 2005 for real estate prices in Calgary to return to 1981 levels after factoring in inflation.

According to many experts, our current recession is much more severe than the one we experienced in the 1980’s. Perhaps on a severity scale, it’s next in line after the great depression of the 1930’s. Will it take another 24 years or maybe even more for prices to recover? Have prices began rising or are they further dropping? The honest answer to that is we just have to wait and see and make our best predictions on the past.

Now that you have the facts, is it really worth it to take the risk to wait or it might be time to move on with your life and live your future? Just to clarify and not be mistaken, I am not suggesting that real estate prices will either fall or rise. All I am trying to shine the light on is that you need to have an open perspective and make your decisions by rationalizing the facts against all speculation and emotional thinking.

When searching for a home, some potential buyers toss around the idea of buying a home privately from an owner rather than using a real estate agent. Buying a home without an agent has its risks. A realtor will protect you from these risks. Your agent has experience and knowledge that will prevent you from making expensive mistakes.

Every home buyer should know the truth about some common myths concerning FSBO (for sale by owner) properties.

Myth 1. Realtors Only Sell Listed Properties

Many home shoppers are under the assumption that a realtor will only show you properties in the multi listings. The truth is that a good realtor wants to help you locate a home that meets your needs.

Just because the home you want is being sold privately doesn’t preclude an agent from working with you. Your realtor will seek to negotiate the best possible price and make sure you are protected contractually.

Private owners want to profit from the sale, but most will cut the price some to move the property. Your agent can negotiate a sales commission and bottom line that is based on current market values.

Myth 2. Private Sellers Will Not Accept Realtor Offers

You may assume that a private owner has something against using an agent. If a person really wants to sell their property, they will consider an offer from any qualified party, even if presented by a realtor.

If a property is not in the MLS, only about 10% of home shoppers will see it. This means that the seller may be waiting a long time to move their house. Paying a commission might not seem so bad to the seller, if it means finally cutting a deal.

The private home seller is probably not experienced in the selling and buying of property. The use of an agent is a benefit to him/her, as well. The realtor makes sure everything is on the up and up and handled properly. The agent, in the ultimate end, protects both parties.

Myth 3. You Have to Pay the Realtor at the Beginning

Many potential home buyers are concerned they will have to pay out money up front to engage the services of a real estate agent. Bypassing an agent to go directly to the owner never guarantees savings.

No money exchanges hands with a realtor up front. The realtor does not even get paid if the sale does not take place. The agent’s commission is paid to them at the time of the loan closing, and its source is from the proceeds of the sale itself.

Myth 4. A Private Seller Is Easily Negotiable

A private seller is already trying to save money by avoiding a real estate commission. The seller is already missing a huge percentage of the buyer market just to avoid paying a commission.

A private seller is already avoiding an agent to save a commission expense. Most likely he/she is not open to negotiations on the price.

Your agent knows a lot about the true market value of property. Your realtor’s expertise in the business will protect you from making major mistakes in the purchase. You might not “save” as much using an agent, but you can rest assured that you cover all the bases.

Myths 1-4. Now You Know The Truth

You should feel much better about the value of a real estate agent after learning the truth about a few of these FSBO myths. If you purchase a home through an agent, you can rest assured that proper documents will be obtained, such as a property disclosure statement.

A contract with a private seller might be outdated and not cover current real estate law. The owner may be totally unaware the contract he/she has is unacceptable. An agent can guide you in your investment because he/she knows what the home is truly worth.

A “for sale by owner” listing is still a possibility when searching for Calgary houses for sale. Your home buying experience will be greatly improved and risk-free if you use a realtor, even in a private sale purchase.

Foreclosures Calgary Calgary Foreclosures: Why They May Be The Best Deal Which You Have Seen

The sad fact is that a great number of individuals in Calgary have probably been laid off of their jobs, as in a number of other areas, thanks to the poor economy. Since persons can not make their home payments absent having a job to make money at, this translates to a high number of Calgary foreclosures. The good news for you the reader lies in the fact that you may obtain some terrific bargains on buying houses in Calgary.

The first thing to consider when looking at a foreclosed home in Calgary is the neighborhood that it is in. If the home is being purchased to either live in, or to resell, you will want to make sure that the Calgary neighborhood is a good one. Talk to the neighbors to see how much crime occurs in the area. If it is quite a bit, you will not want to purchase that particular home in that area.

You will want to make sure that you can get along great with the neighbors in your area – you don’t want to have mean or annoying neighbors. This can make the Canadian home difficult to live in, as well as make it really difficult to sell.

In such a way, you will understand exactly how much money that you will need to pour in to improvements to the house in order to make the place livable, as well as pleasant in appearance.

Some Calgary homes require having work done on them (and wouldn’t you rather understand precisely how much cash you will have to throw into the house in advance of buying it?), though not all of them need this. You should always strive to have a grasp on what work and how much of it has to be completed on the house before you buy it.

Whether you determine to resell or occupy the Calgary foreclosure which you purchase, many of the same decisions will need to be made. If you are unable to buy a property out right, you can always obtain a mortgage to assist in completing the acquisition of the foreclosure property which you have chosen. Whether you are purchasing one home or several, it is important to be sure that you are getting the best interest rate on the mortgage(s) which you obtain to facilitate your purchase.

You can purchase several resell homes by going from one to another buying one property, then selling it and taking the profits to purchase another foreclosed property, and then repeat the process. The use of the profits realized on a sale of a foreclosed property is up to you, even if you decide not to acquire multiple properties.
