The first thing prospective buyers will notice about your home for sale is its curb appeal.

Curb appeal is all about making a great first impression. A home with great curb appeal can stop traffic. It can entice people to look a little more closely at the “For Sale” sign on the front lawn. It is what gets potential buyers out of their vehicles and onto your property.

Even the plainest properties can be eye-catching; it’s all about staging. Try these simple, cost-effective ways to give your curb appeal a boost during the listing of your home.

The Calgary Real Estate Board's big headline this month? "APRIL BRINGS A SLIGHT INVENTORY DECLINE." Why so dramatic? Because for months now Calgary's real estate market has been struggling with massive oversupply in the market, leading to a buyer's market at a time when few people were able to buy. This news is an exciting turn of events (one which was forecasted at the start of the year) that will hopefully bring increased stability to the real estate market here in Calgary, Alberta. 

In their media report, CREB notes, "There have been no significant changes occurring in sales activity, but the number of new listings coming onto the market continues to ease relative to 2018 levels. The decline in new listings was enough to start chipping away at

The economy deeply effects the housing market. This may seem obvious; after all, you hear it time and time again.

This is important because these two things impact the lives of Calgarians and people everywhere deeply; two of our most common basic needs are shelter and financial resources. Let's learn how they interact.

Each month the Calgary Real Estate Board releases the previous month's real estate market statistics. Each report begins with a summary of the major trends that emerged, such as the months of supply and benchmark prices. For those of you who read these, or our summaries of them (which you can find here), you may be familiar with CREB's chief
