SOLD #1508 3500 VARSITY DR NW $230,000


C4064907 #1508, 3500 Varsity DR NW $230,000. 
买家是个在这里长大的菲律宾投资客户,从事销售工作我多年了,见过各种各样的人,这女人还真是第一次见到,就要把我做销售的全部热情给磨平了。前前后后,共出了4个offer,放弃了3个,才最后成交了这套,还不是我想让她买得。但是她就是什么都听不进去,就以为自己的主意正。 

因为是投资客,预算又好,30-50万都行。我就建议她尽可能买到不交管理费的独立屋,可是一会儿买家希望能够出门就让小孩骑自行车,一会要想离儿童医院、大学、大型超市近。总之,一天一个新主意。好吧,想买公寓,我不让她买靠近市中心的那套town house,因为我告诉她这栋楼里单元户太少,当年建筑期间,我们并不确定建筑质量。那么现在管理公司又不会是大型管理公司,很难准确把握公寓管理水平包括正规的管理文件提交。她就是不听,我们看房子,出offer。然后她碰钉子了,联系小楼的管理委员会,人家根本不把她当回事,问什么,什么不给回复。这还没有搬进去就这样,将来怎么办??得,又白费一个offer。 

最后这个啊,是她偏要买得,再不买孩子上学以后就没时间看房子了。我告诉她一定要让公寓审核文件公司审核所有文件,她因为前前后后房检就花了两回钱了,就想省钱。好在还是听我得,自少让律师瞅了瞅。哎......

2001-2015 Calgary investment activities

Investment Activity

• In the 2001-2015 period, world commodity prices fluctuated in response to economic cycles
and changing demand in the emerging and advanced economies. Between 2001 and 2014,
the price for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil climbed from $25.9 (US per barrel) to
$93.0 (US per barrel). However, WTI dropped to $48.7 (US per barrel) in 2015, in response to
an increase in the supply/ demand balance in the oil market. Adjusted for inflation, oil prices
grew by 88 per cent over the review period.

• Investment intentions in Alberta adjusted for inflation rose by 106 per cent between 2001
and 2015. Investment intentions rose in response to higher commodity prices and strong
demand for additional residential and non-residential space.

• In this period, Alberta’s provincial GDP rose 46 per cent, from $199.4 billion in 2001 to
$298.0 billion by 2015 (at 2007 price level). Investment spending was an important
contribution to the GDP growth.

• Price fluctuation resulted in corresponding fluctuation in revenues and capital spending,
which caused economic activity to fluctuate.


Investment by Sector and Industry

• Residential investment indicates the expenditures on residential structures and residential
equipments, while non-residential investment indicates the expenditures by businesses on
capital such as commercial real estate, equipment, and machinery.

• Capital investment was the largest contributor to Calgary’s economic growth between
2001 and 2015.

• However, low energy prices resulted in declining investment in 2015 and it is expected to
remain a drag on economic growth in 2016 as energy investment continues to decline.


十月份房地产统计---交易量大增

十月份房屋销售反弹了

油价开始往下跌已经两年了,第一次二手房的交易表现正常。整个城市共售出1,644 套,比2015年同期涨了近16%(和10月17日的新贷款政策截至日期肯定有关吧;还有一些买家意识到怎么也没有降到他/她期待的价位,至少独立屋产品段)。

看房地产局官方也承认了,“这次销售量的增加可能和新贷款政策调整有关,还有就是低价位段的房屋供给增加、未来价格继续调整。众多变化因素可能刺激部分买家入市,特别是购买低价位段的买家。然而,还有其它很多因素影响房地产市场走势,这个月份的变化可能只是暂时,接下来的几个月还要继续观望才是。” 

成交量和去年同期相比,各种房屋产品全都增加,但是增幅最多的还是独立屋产品段,成交量超过去年同期18%。还有个迹象值得一提,就是30-40万价位区间成交量增加最多。而连体房、公寓增加的交易量则主要在低价位的产品。

“今年截至到目前,市场的变化给很多卖方带来极大挑战。交易量提升,意味着买家入市,同时那部分卖家解套了,这其实对于买卖双方来说都是好事。”

还是那句话,这个月的迹象是暂时的,还要观察下面几个月。(有啥好观察的,都年底了,然后就年初了,圣诞/度假季节,除非从国外大量涌入买家。)尽管这个月的表现良好,但是从年初至今全部房屋产品段都仍然比去年同期差,也比长线指数低。从年初至今共成交 15,642套,比去年还是少了6.3%。低价位成交量增加,就把均价、中间价位拉下去了,整个城市二手房市场基准价没怎么变 $438,900,比上个月微低 0.34%,比去年同期调低4%。

从2015年初经济衰退开始,独立屋产片段一共降了 3.8 %,而公寓产品段降了9.4%(怎么觉得提这个比率大得要多呢??),尽管10月份交易量增加不少,但是大部分的房屋产品价格继续下滑。

SOLD 东南区 Midnapore duplex没有管理费 $280,000



SOLD my listing C4064839 19 Midpark DR SE $280,000. 

My hiking friend's house. It is tougher than I thought as the condition of the row house especially original kitchen & baths. With tenants lived there for the first month and mess in the house, we got lots of attraction but only one offer. I would say owner was not ready for offer or do not really know what to do. Negotiation was not smooth at all as seller stop negotiation in the middle of conversation. 

After wasting two offers, I insist and suggest seller to work with the 3rd offer. It\'s never too late right especially offer is still on the table :). Atash said his parent can now retire. So happy for you buddy.
