Dealing With Multiple Offers on Your Edmonton Property

Multiple offers on your Edmonton home with Canadian money You may think that having to deal with multiple offers on your home is a wonderful problem. After all, there are so many buyers clamouring to purchase your Edmonton property!
The challenge, however, is picking the best offer – and that isn't always the one with the highest price. Most offers come with conditions, such as "conditional on securing  financing",  "conditional on the sale of our current property" (not a very good one) and others.
You have to consider both the price and the conditions when choosing which offer to accept. There are other considerations, too. What if someone makes a great offer on your home, but they don't have a pre-approved mortgage and they haven’t put their current home on the market? YIKES! Not good! That kind of offer is risky because it is more likely than an unconditional offer to fall through. So there's a lot to think about when you're in the seemingly enviable position of dealing with multiple offers. How do you select the right one? The answer is to have good experienced REALTOR® team (like Audrey Abuan and Mike Muranetz) by your side to help you make the right decision for you & your family!
Want more tips on how to get multiple offers for your home? Call Audrey and Mike today & they will show you how to make it happen on your home, even in today's market!

Do You Know the Basics of Home Security?

Most people feel confident about the basics of Locked & Secured Edmonton Homehome security. For example: Keep all doors locked. Have a light on in the house while away. Never hide a key outside in an obvious place, like under the mat. Yet, almost a million and a half (WOW!) properties get burglarized in North America each year. So how can you prevent that from happening to your home? Here are a few less known home security basics:


  • Actually, never hide a key outside. Thieves know all the hiding places. Instead, make sure all family members have a key.
  • Two-thirds of home burglaries occur during the day. So be extra vigilant about making sure doors and windows are locked while you're away at work during the day.
  • Surprisingly, most thieves are not daring. They are 2.7 times more likely to target a home without an alarm system. At the very least, nave some signs prominently displaying an alarm company. Sometimes, merely see these signs will make the burglar move on.
  • Thieves will attempt to force entry throughBarred Edmonton patio door to increase your home security sliding-style doors and windows first. So make sure these have a locking bar or extra bolt lock.
  • Surprising, 40% of household burglaries do not involve forced entry. The thief is able to slip in through an unlocked window or door.
  • Don't show off possessions! An imported racing bike/fancy ski-doo parked next to the garage or expensive audio equipment clearly seen through a window, is an invitation to burglars.
  • Take a look at the lighting and landscaping around your property. Are there spots where a thief could easily hide? If so, make some changes like add motion enabled lights.
  • When planning a trip, have a trusted neighbor or family pick up newspapers, flyers and anything else that may accumulate at your front door.

Cannabis legalization could be a problem for Edmonton homeowners.

As an experienced residential Edmonton REALTOR® for more than 20 years, I can foresee growing Cannabis inside our Edmonton homes as a huge negative.

 

 

When selling a property, many buyers are sensitive to smells and find lingering cigarette smoke, pet smells, strong cooking odors very offensive. Marijuana will add to this list.

I understand the benefits and personally know seniors who really enjoy the relief of pain and the relaxing sensation it creates. However, passing a law to allow Edmontonians to grow cannabis in their own homes is completely insane.

For me personally, there are so many questions. Will we need a license to have a pot plant, like our family pets? Should we be smoking the cannabis inside our homes, the ingrained smell is no different than cigarette smells. What if we grow it outside? Who will be responsible for any losses? Let's drug our wildlife. Watching a "stoned" squirrel or bunny hopping down the back alley could be pretty funny. Will we need special insurances in our greenhouses? Are we allowed to play with, alternate this cannabis to create a more potent drug? Can we smoke it with children in the room?

If laws are implemented for growing marijuana inside our homes, will these laws also apply to certain poisonous household plants, making beer and wines, rolling cigarettes Will it stop there or will it continue until we have no freedom of our own property?

As a licensed real estate agent in Alberta, am I suppose to now report everyone who has a cannabis plant? Will my Seller's homes be considered a "Drug House"? Will it be "red flagged" by CMHC and all future mortgages will have to be conventional.
 
One of the key issues that CREA's federal affairs team has been working on recently is on Bill C-45 and the legalization of cannabis in Canada. This is a great article from the Canadian Real Estate Aassociation. - read more

Would love to hear your thoughts on growing cannabis in our Edmonton homes and on purchasing a home where homeowners smoke the cannabis inside.
