Buying Tip - Focus on "Motivated" Sellers

Just a quick tip today for you if you're looking for a property and you want to find a great deal in buying Calgary real estate.


There's a lot of real estate on the market. Some of it sells really quickly; and the rest just sits there waiting for the right offer.


And in a lot of cases, for a number of reasons, some sellers are very, very "motivated" to sell.


What does this mean for you?


Well, if your offer to buy comes in at the right time, you might find a seller who's willing to let a property go for at or below market value... which could set you up for some instant equity and a solid chance at making a profit when you eventually sell.

How Can You Find Such Properties?

They're out there!


  • One technique we like to scan the local MLS® System for certain "keywords" that might signal motivation.
  • Another is to use is to look for specific desired possession dates.
  • Another is to look for vacant property.
  • Another is to watch the list of properties with price reductions on a day-to-day basis.

Setting up a "motivated seller" search alert like this isn't too hard -- we'd be happy to set you'd up if you like. If you're interesed, just send us an email or call us with your contact info and we'll call you to get the particular parameters.
