Welcome to the world of investment properties!

An investment property can be a property you use yourself (such as a vacation home), a property you lease to others (such as renters or a business), or a property that you fix up and flip for an immediate return. Whatever you plan on using your investment property for, consider the following:

  • Purchasing an investment property is a major decision, so don't rush it! Take the time to think critically about if an investment property is right for you, what kind of investment property is right for you, and, when you find a property, if it is the best investment property for you. There is absolutely no need to rush! Take your time so that you can be 100% (or at least 99%) confident in your end decision.

During this very difficult year, Calgary came together. We always knew you would, Calgary!

Time and time again, Calgarians show up for each other and help the most vulnerable, extending a helping hand and lifting up spirits. While traditional methods of volunteering may not be as easy accessible these days because of COVID-19, there are lots of ways you can support your city, community and closest neighbors. It's going to be a snowy weekend; time some time to spread some sunshine.

Here are some ways to give back to your neighbors:

  • Be a snow angel! Like we mentioned, the show is falling heavy all across the city this weekend. It is a legal requirement to keep the sidewalk outside of your home cleared, so while you're shoveling, keep going

There are many factors that help sell your Calgary, Alberta home: the real estate professional you partner with, the location, open houses, word of mouth, a competitive listing price, and the right timing. One of the largest factors is, quite simply, your listing photos.

Most buyers search online listings extensively before narrowing down which homes they actually want to see in person, especially during COVID-19 times. Your listing photos show the world exactly what your home has to offer. It is an inside glimpse into the space and layout.

It is your real estate professional's job to provide your listing with photos. Some real estate agents take them themselves, and others will hire out the work to a photography company. Here at Team Ken

With the fresh snow coming our way this weekend, it is time to winterize! Ideally you would already have this done, but sometimes life gets the upper hand. If you're scrambling now to winterize your property while it is currently wintering, here are some tips of things to check in on so you can stay toasty warm all winter long:

For most people, there first home is a rental property.

A rental property is a great way to learn how to live on your own without the responsibility of property taxes or major repairs. It is ideal for people unsure of where they want to settle by allowing you to test out a community, and for people whose lives may require they move frequently. Rental properties are also a way for people to get into housing if they don't have the financial means to qualify for a mortgage and buy a home. 

Rental properties also come with some downsides. It can be hard to fully feel 'at home' when you are living under someone else's roof, potentially with other individuals. You also do not have the creative freedom to paint, complete renovations, or put nails in the

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

This thanksgiving feels like it hits a little different as many of us feel distinctly ungrateful for the chaos of 2020 and look forward to the year finally being over. However, it's impossible to fast-forward through three whole months. 2020, for all of its surprises, pain and beauty, has become a year of reflection as we dismantle the way of living we were used to and build something new. There's always so much to be thankful for, whether it be something big like welcoming a someone new into the family, or small like how crunchy the leaves are this October. So on this thanksgiving, we encourage everyone to reflect on their year with grace and hope.

    Welcome to an original owners home in the coveted NW area of Scenic Acres. This was a popular floor plan featuring over 1800sqft, three bedrooms and a main floor den.

The large comer lot will legally accommodate RV parking, also features a large double attached garage. The mechanical was updated this year including a new f/a furnace, and a h/w tank in 2019.
