Looking to sell? The time to act is now!
Buyers are ready to pull the trigger after enjoying the last of summer but are not able to find anything. The reason? It seems like everyone wants (or needs) to wait until spring to list their house. Let me tell you — if you want to sell, the time to act is now. Especially if your home isn’t in *quite* as good shape as it could be. It’s time for the ugly stepsister to shine (no offence). There are so many princes (buyers) out there, she’ll get lots of dates and likely an offer of marriage (or just an offer). Come spring, they may be gone and you’ll have to compete with that cute little Pinterest-y home on the corner — “aka” Cinderella. If you’re thinking about selling, call me and we can decide together the best strategy. If you’re thinking of buying, I’ll get to work on my fairy God-Realtor skills. 😉
Now, buckle up for some Natalie Berthiaume Group updates. There’s quite a few this month!
First up, I have decided it’s time to find another hardworking, smart and ambitious gal to add to the team. We need a little help with our Calgary business, so the search is officially on. Someone who is willing to put the time in; is coachable and wants to be mentored is the ideal candidate. It would help if she can recognize the dry humour that gets dished out pretty frequently on the team. If you know of anyone with their real estate license that fits this bill, let me know!
We’re also hoping to address any questions people may have regarding the market. “The Natalie Twist” is that it will be UNFILTERED. You will get an honest answer, no fluff. You can submit your burning questions by replying to this email! Then, head over to Instagram and Facebook for my unfiltered, honest answer.
If you know me, you know I can’t resist a little competition. We’re in a race to get as many 5-star Google Reviews as possible. As it stands, we’re sitting at 54, but hoping to hit 100 sooner than later. If you would like to drop a review, it would be much appreciated! Oh, and here’s a direct link to make it easy: CLICK HERE.
But it’s not just about us around here. In honour of your birthday, I’ll be donating to Thumbs Up Foundation and will invite you to match my donation. Watch for the email on your big day! We have raised over $15,000 this year… and counting!
Lastly, I have heard a lot of feedback regarding my book recommendations from last month. So, I think I will make it a monthly thing for my fellow bookworms. If you’ve read anything you’ve loved, please let me know! This month, I read “On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, by Stephen King“. It’s a little bit memoir and a little bit instructional. I had to pay attention when he started talking about grammar but I promise, it’s a good read. (Especially if you’re a fan, like me!)
Have a great month and see you in November!
Did you know? I publish a monthly article in House & Homes feature in the Airdrie City View (also available online at AirdrieToday.com). Every month, I delve into considerations that Airdrie home buyers and sellers should know about the local real estate market. This is an ever-changing and fast-paced landscape and I’m sharing a front-row seat with you!
