For Sale by Owners (FSBO’s) in Calgary’s Real Estate Market
Are you considering the FSBO (For Sale By Owner) program? Buyers today are well educated and are looking for the best of the best deal. When they see a FSBO they get quite excited as they expect the property to be considerably less than the neighboring MLS property. Their assumption is that the realtor fees are removed, thus reducing the list price. They are quickly disappointed when they see the prices are usually very similar. Not only is the FSBO looking to net more, but the buyer is also looking to save that same amount.
History has proven over and over again that MLS listed properties realize the highest net gain. This is due in part to proper market pricing combined with the extensive exposure our MLS system gives the property. On average, every successful MLS realtor has 3 to 5 “qualified” buyers in their database at any given time, ready to buy. When you do the math, at least 100 agents out of Calgary’s 5,000 (plus) agents will expose your property to upwards of 500 potential pre-qualified buyers.
POTENTIAL PITFALLS OF FSBO’s (FOR SALE BY OWNERS)
Security of your home and contents
Negotiation on price and included chattels
Properly completing all the legal documents required
Deposits and trust account
Ron Christensen and his associates take care of all the above-captioned points, right “From Sign Up to Sign Down”.
Calgary Real Estate Acreage Sales
Acreages are unique and require specific knowledge.
All acreages come in many varying sizes and dimensions. Calgary is surrounded by multiple MD’s (Municipal Districts) including MD of Foothills, MD of Rockyview, MD of Wheatland, MD of Vulcan and more. Acreage parcels can range from 3 acres up to 1,000’s of acres, with or without dwellings and outbuildings. There are acreages with homes starting in the 200’s ranging up to multi-million dollar estates and ranches.
The close proximity to Calgary, the higher the prices. Unlike suburban living, on acreages, you have to be aware of details such as septic systems, water rights, drilled wells, cisterns, potable water or not. Also, there are easements, utility right of ways, access, bus routes, nearest schools, phone & internet service and much more. Ron Christensen has acquired all the knowledge required thru decades of experience to assist you in these areas if you are a buyer looking to purchase. If you currently own an acreage and are looking to sell, Ron is definitely ready to assist you as well, “From Sign Up to Sign Down”.
Calgary Real Estate Private Sales
Sometimes confidentiality is required.
Occasionally sellers require a discreet method of sale. When confidentiality is important, we take a different approach to marketing and cover all the pros and cons of this arrangement with our sellers. Sometimes it may only be that they do not want a yard sign for the neighbors to see or they want it marketed “Exclusively” and not promoted thru the MLS system.
Regardless of your requirements, Ron Christensen is fully prepared and qualified to follow your wishes and make it happen. Call or text Ron Christensen at 403-861-7770 or email email@example.com today to get the process started.
