Buying With Me

Whether you are looking for a comfortable place to retire or a beautiful spot for recreation, the Columbia Valley is an ideal place to call home.  With Royal LePage Rockies West Realty, I am dedicated to helping you find the best home, acreage, or condo that fits your needs.  A caring professional who is driven by your best interest, I will go out of my way to show you every home or property that may be of interest to you. You’ll surely find that there are a variety of attractive properties here in The Valley that suit your family’s needs.

If you’re new to The Valley or to the towns or hamlets like Radium Hot Springs, Invermere, Canal Flats, Fairmont Hot Springs, Windermere, Edgewater, Brisco, and Wilmer, the area supports plenty of activities that will help you clear your head.  Winter sports like skiing are a few miles away in picturesque Panorama Mountain Village while the beautiful summer weather makes the Columbia Valley perfect for golfing at a championship golf course, hiking through the mountains, or participating in exhilarating water sports in one of the many bodies of water like Lake Windermere and Columbia Lake.

While the area draws many by offering a fine opportunity to play outdoors, it is also the history of the Columbia Valley that makes buying a property here so attractive.  From the early formation of The Valley and the mountains that surround it, the area has been blessed with dynamic structures made from quartz, argillite, and limestone.  When the first settlers came to The Valley and later European and American explorers, the people lived harmoniously with The Valley and its grand mountains.  It is this attitude to keep the area beautiful and serene that continues today, with a hope that the Columbia Valley will retain its rich history and scenic significance.

Since 2004, I have helped people like you find a beautiful home, acreage, or condo here in the towns and hamlets that make up the Columbia Valley.

Factors That Influence Overpricing

1. Extensive renovations / hidden costs
2. Desire to purchase in a higher-priced area
3. Original cost of home was too high
4. Lack of real market information
5. Building in "bargaining room"
6. Perceived emotional value

The Result of Overpricing
Many sellers believe that if they price their home high initially, they can lower it later.

Often, when a home is priced too high, it experiences little activity.  Gradually the price will come down to market value, but by that time it's been for sale too long and some buyers will be wary and reject the property.

On occasion, the price is dropped below the market value because the seller runs out of time.  The property sells for less than it's worth.

Missing the Right Buyer
You may think that interested buyers "can always make an offer," but if the home is overpriced, potential buyers looking in a lower price range will never see it.

Those who can afford a home at your asking price will soon recognize that they can get a better value elsewhere.

The Importance of Early Activity
As soon as a home comes on the market, there is a flurry of activity surrounding it.  This is a crucial time when Real Estate Professionals and potential buyers sit up and take notice.

If the home is overpriced, it doesn't take long for interested parties to lose interest.  By the time the price drops, a majority of buyers are lost.

Pricing Your Property

The single most important decision you will make with your Royal LePage Real Estate Professional is determining the right asking price for your property.

Once you've achieved a realistic sales price, you can count on your property being professionally marketed and promoted to bring more buyers to your door.  You can also expect to sell your home for the best possible price in the lease amount of time.

The Benefits of Pricing Right
1. Your property sells faster, because it is exposed to more qualified buyers.
2. Your home doesn't lose its "marketability."
3. The closer to market value, the higher the offers.
4. A well-priced property can generate competing offers.
5. Real Estate Professionals will be enthusiastic about presenting your property to buyers.

Determining The Value of Your Home

Before you compare your home to similar properties and establish a competitive list price, the following points should be considered:
1. Location
2. Size
3. Style
4. Condition
5. Community Amenities
6. Buyer Supply
7. Financing Options

Getting to Know Your Market
A comparative market analysis is an indicator of what today's buyers are willing to pay for a home.  It compares the market activity of homes similar to yours in your neighborhood.  Those that have recently sold represent what buyers are willing to pay.  The homes currently listed for sale represent the price sellers hope to obtain. And those listings that have expired were generally overpriced or poorly marketed.

Your real estate Professional will prepare a comparative market analysis for your home based on the most current market information.  Together you and your real estate Professional will establish the proper list price for your home.

Find your ideal property in Fairmont Hot Springs, Radium Hot Springs, Invermere, Panorama or Windermere.  I can provide you with a comparable market appraisal of your home if you are selling.  If you are buying, I have all types of properties for sale in the Columbia Valley in a range of prices.  Call me today for professional assistance!

My husband Wayne and I moved to the valley in 2004 as full time residents after enjoying many years as weekenders. Although I was born and raised in Calgary, we were drawn to the natural and beautiful surroundings of the Valley.<br>

I have over 30 years of experience in the customer service industry in a sales, management, and finance capacity, I have developed positive relationships with colleagues and I have provided reliable, quality service to many satisfied clients.

In 2004 I started yet another service oriented career, real estate, and I have been very successful in this endeavour.  So successful in fact, Wayne and I purchased the Royal LePage franchise in Invermere and Fairmont Hot Springs in the fall of 2007.  I feel that with my love of meeting people, providing them with the answers to their real estate needs, and the exciting new developments that are coming to our quiet little valley, many great adventures lie ahead.

I pride myself on being a professional who truly cares and is dedicated to making your experience a positive and enjoyable one. I would welcome an opportunity to meet with you if you are looking for your dream home or if you have a property to sell.
