Your Last Post Was 2012?

True story! Blogging takes a lot of time? I post a few things over on http://www.century21.ca/patrick.galesloot/blog I could repost, but does that help or hurt? That’s about the extent of an excuse / reason I can give you.  Unless you want me to tell you I’ve been focused on other areas of my business which […]

MLS® System review

The Central Alberta REALTORS® Association recently changed MLS® systems.  More specifically the software that enables us to share listings among members and publish them to websites such as www.realtor.ca was changed. Big Deal? Well actually it is a big deal.  We’ve been using the same software for the past 10 years.  As a result our members were […]

Community Photos

I’ve been adding community photos to our Century 21 site and using some time to time in blog posts.  I’m a casual photographer and by no means a professional photo taker.  I do have a Nikon D40 which I enjoy.  It takes great pictures and I enjoy learning the features and settings. Recently I found […]

I get that question quite often.  We see a whole variety of dates and requests for a possession date for buyers.  Probably the most common […]

Market Temperature On The Rise

Real Estate Sales reporting by agents is often based on their personal experiences, and “feelings”.  It’s quite common that you’ll talk to a real estate agent and they will say things like “It feels like it;s getting busier out there”. I’m sure I can fine anecdotal evidence and quotes from several real estate agents to […]

Mobile Real Estate

Our Century 21 Canada technology gurus rolled out our latest search App on the Android platform to complement the already popular iPhone App. It’s pretty slick, in my humble biased opinion. 😉 I have tried both as I have a Goggle Nexus One Android phone (now relegated to occasional use) and the latest iPhone 4S.  Yes I’m […]

Are We Balanced Yet?

2011 has been a transition year for sure.  Coming off of string buyer market conditions we are beginning to see signs of balanced market conditions.  However we’re not fully there yet.  Not all price ranges are displaying the same market conditions and regionally the hyper local real estate markets are vastly different.  For now I’ll be focusing on Red Deer. November 2011 is seasonally a […]

The Best Time To Move Is?

It should be no secret that the busiest season in Red Deer real estate is April, May and June.  The answer to the question then would be the second quarter of any given year, or is that merely the popular time and not necessarily the best time to move? 2011 closely resembles a typical Red Deer real […]
