Edmonton Real Estate Market Report

 
 


 Dear Friends,

I hope you are enjoying the long, sunny months, and have the chance to really relax and soak in the summer rays during this lovely season.

Summer is a popular time to start looking at new homes ahead of a fall move. We’ve put together a guide of the top 8 things to double check in any house you look at to avoid nasty, costly surprises down the road.

On the more light-hearted side, if you are looking for something to do with family and friends this month, look no further than our guide to the most fun, upbeat events happening around the city – many of them are free! Also, the photo gallery features the coolest and stylish camping tents you can find out there, either for yourself or for family.

No matter what your needs are, we have you covered.

Whether guiding you in the direction of summer fun with our recommendations or helping you buy and sell property, I am at your disposal. Have a friend looking to buy or sell as well? Please keep me in mind. Your referral will be put to good use.

You are probably feeling excited and overwhelmed as you go through the steps in purchasing a new home especially if you are a first-time buyer. Going to an open house and checking out your potential home is an essential step. Don't worry, we have provided a list of potential home pitfalls that you should watch out for.

1. The roof
This can be a major source of headaches if there are leaks and costly if there are repairs needed. A newer roof can even mean a lower homeowners insurance rate.

2. Plumbing
Don’t forget to check what’s happening underneath your future house. Check the pipes for leaks, damage and mold for both the sake of your health and your wallet.

3. Basement walls
Along that same note, when you’re looking down below, check out the state of the basement. The walls can tell you a lot about the state of the house from its foundation to humidity levels.

4. Electronics
Bring a phone charger to check that the outlets all work and take a peek at the electrical panel.

5. Take the temperature
If it’s unusually warm or cool, that might be a reflection of the insulation. Heating and cooling systems are a must in our climates and expensive to fix.

6. Windows and doors
Make sure they all open, close and latch properly – not just entryways but also cupboards and pantries.

7. Check out the land
Go beyond the garden and see what kind of natural disasters might have an impact. For example, check if the house is in the flood zone area.

8. Home inspection
For full peace of mind before you buy, hire someone to do a comprehensive home inspection from top to bottom.
