Purchasing a condominium in Edmonton can seem over whelming. Below is some helpful advise to make buying an Edmonton condominium a little less stressful.

Edmonton Condomiumns Image


1. Research The Neighbourhood

There are no guarentees, your condo fees will be the same when it is time to sell. Odds are, your condominium fess will increase. Purchasing a condo in a sought after Edmonton neighborhood, such as downtown Edmonton, University Area and Westmount can off set future condo fee increases.

2. Less Amenities Doesn't mean Lower Condo Fees

Everyone thinks that if you're in a building with more amenities you’re going to pay higher condo fees, but this isn't necessarily true. Larger highrise condominimus with gyms, pools, guestrooms etc. are able to spread the cost among the higher population of tenants. Trendy boutique or smaller walk up buildings can have fees that are just as high or higher without any amenities. One of the main factors of condo fee increases is how the building is managed. As a condominium owner, having a say on what needs to be done to help budget your complex can avoid any future levies or special assessments.

3. Does Your Building have a Reputation?

Yes, buildings have reputations! Ask your agent to give you an idea of the building's desireability in the market. Some questions to ask include: how long does it take for units to sell in the building you're considering vs. others in your area? If it's priced below market value, find out why, and be okay with those reasons before going forward.

Timing is one of the key factors when it comes to purchasing real estate. The key to making money is buy low, sell high and real estate is no exception. RE/MAX.ca has just unleashed Canada’s Housing Market Outlook for 2017 and Edmonton is doing well. If you have been considering "up-sizing", now is a great time to invest before Edmonton's real estate market soars again.

 

Detached, single-family homes are the most sought after property type in Edmonton, and older homes in mature neighbourhoods typically receive multiple offers as a result of low inventory. A wide variety of inventory across the rest of the market provides good opportunities to move-up buyers who drive demand in Edmonton.

Stable prices have created good value in the upper-end of the market, resulting in 33 properties selling for over a million dollars in the first quarter of 2017. New approvals for high-rise condo developments in Edmonton’s downtown core and the Whyte Avenue district are expected to fuel condo market activity in the region moving forward.

The housing markets in Calgary and Edmonton remained relatively stable, with moderate declines in the number of sales and average residential sale price as a result of the prolonged recovery of the oil sector over the past two years. The average residential sale price in Edmonton decreased slightly, by two per cent year-over-year in 2016, while Calgary’s average residential sale price decreased by four per cent. Buyer activity is expected to pick up slightly in the second half of 2017 if employment opportunities in the oil sector continue to gradually come back to the province.

 

Highlites of Edmonton's real estate market for the first quater of 2017 include the stability of home prices, an increase of multi-million dollar homes being sold, more infills being built and several multiple offers on single family detached homes. Way to go Alberta!

Edmonton Principal Residence Exemption

Edmonton Principal Residence Exemption image

Just in from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) newsletter. For the 70% of Canadians (including us Edmontonians) who own a home, it is a place to live, raise a family, and connects them to their community. Due to Canada’s tax system’s Principal Residence Exemption, when we sell our homes, any increased value or “capital gains” are not taxed. This tax break matters to Canadian homeowners. Collectively, we have about $3 trillion in home equity and our homes are often our largest financial asset.

However, starting with 2016 income tax returns, there are some changes in how homeowners qualify for the Principal Residence Exemption. Until now, the Canada Revenue Agency has not required Canadians to report on a home sale during a tax season. However, if you sold your Edmonton home in 2016 or later, you will need to complete a Schedule 3, Capital Gains of the T1 Income Tax and Benefit Return in order to report your sale.

The good news is that, in terms of taxes, nothing has changed. The same tax benefit is available to anyone who sells their home, provided the property was the principal residence for every year you owned it – even if you use part of your home for business purposes. There is no “new tax” involved, only a requirement you report the sale details on your tax returns.

 

As always, talk with your accountant. The small fee you pay for professional help can easily outweigh the mistake you do if filled out by yourself by either not getting a deserved refund or worse by having to pay back more taxes.

Canada Revenue Income Tax Credit imageDid you just buy your first home in 2016? Well, you can claim up to $5,000 (cha-ching!) for the purchase of a qualifying home in 2016 if both of the following apply:

- you did not live in another home owned by you or your spouse or common-law partner in the year of acquisition or in any of the four preceding years (first-time home buyer).



How cool is that? That $5,000 (cha-ching again!) taken off your gross income will be like money in your jeans. To get full details, go to Canada Revenue's website THEN talk to your accountant. Don't forget to share with all your first time buyer friends.

Keeping the Heat in Your Edmonton Home

 Keeping the heat in image

What Is Retrofitting? Retrofitting a house is simply upgrading it so that it will keep the heat in. This means adding insulation, caulking and weatherstripping, improving or replacing windows and doors, and improving the heating system. Retrofitting also means including energy-efficiency measures in all your renovation and repair activities. In our Edmonton climate, retrofitting usually makes a lot of sense. This book tells you how to go about retrofitting your Edmonton house. It deals with houses of all kinds in all parts of Canada. It does not deal with apartment or commercial buildings, although some of the information presented here may be useful. This book is designed to serve both the experienced do-it-yourselfer and the novice willing to give it a try. It is also a useful consumer guide for homeowners who intend to hire a contractor to undertake retrofit work. If you want a copy, just email us or comment below and well send you a .pdf copy.....free. If you want an actual book, let us know and we'll get it to you either in person or thru Canada post. Do you have any friends who could use this to save few bucks on your heating??
