When buying a new home, are you planning to stay in your existingneighborhood or are you looking for a new neighborhood? If you are planning onswitching communities, that can be incredibly scary. In Winnipeg, we havefound that there has been a large influx of movement to Sage Creek Houses For sale.
We think this is likely because the community is newer, family-oriented,close to the perimeter, affordable, and self-sufficient. Not to mention,the number of outdoor spaces are abundant! After all, your surroundingsare equally as important as the home you live in.
There are a variety of ways you can scour the market, however, the tried andtested results always seem to be through the likes of using a Realtor. InWinnipeg, we recommend the Jennifer Queen Team. They know the communities, theschool catchments, etc. One of their recommended neighborhoods is Royalwood Real Estatewhich is known for its more affluent community, beautiful greenery, and amazingschool districts.
In and around Sage Creek and Royalwood is the neighborhood ofBonavista. If you are looking to build new, this community offers a goodamount of options in terms of building types (attached vs. detached) as well asa plethora of builders with a variety of floor plan options. We highlyrecommend hiring a realtor to navigate all of the builder options, as there areoftentimes so many considerations as analysis paralysis becomes real for thosetrying to do it on their own.
It's a tough job to find Real Estate Agents in Winnipeg and it isn’t adecision you should rush into either. We recommend reading reviewsonline, asking friends for recommendations, and seeing if there are areas ofexpertise. A good Realtor will listen to your needs and wants and tailora plan specifically for you.
Selling Houses-Pricing Properly.
One of the biggest questions that sellers often ask is “What is my homeworth?”. A short and simple answer is that your house is worth what themost motivated buyer is willing to pay for it. Plain and simple. But how do you figure that out? By looking at comparable properties tosee what existing buyers have been willing to pay. After all, buyers shopby comparison.
A good tip to find a Realtor is to look for one that sells a fair amount ofreal estate in the area. After all, those real estate agents haveexperience with existing buyers in the area and thus know what they are willingto pay and what features are more valuable to them. A good Real estateagent will present you with a list of comparable sales so that you arecomfortable with your pricing decisions.
We strongly recommend listening to your Realtor’s advice on pricing, asoverpricing is one of the most serious detriments to a home’s sale. Solong as a property is well marketed and properly priced, in Winnipeg it shouldgenerally sell in under 30 days (barring the current pandemic, these timelineswill likely go up). However, if your property is sitting on the marketfor longer than it should, the price may need to be addressed. Westrongly recommend trusting the pros!
