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

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
The Result of Overpricing
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
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
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
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:
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.
