When you’re moving into a new home, always remember that you’re facing a myriad of tasks that you can’t possibly keep track of mentally.

Edmonton Real Estate Market Update:

If you have ever thought of selling your home "For Sale By Owner", have you thought about what type of home buyer is would show interest in  your home. A Serious home buyer would not purchase for sale by owner when they can get the services of a Realtor and his or her Brokerage to help in the purchase process at no costs to the buyer at all, and all the benefits of being legally covered in case there is an issue with the property ( where as if the home owner is not under contract with a Brokerage they do not have to disclose any hidden defects ).
