Okay, okay — I know what you're thinking: another realtor writing another boring real estate blog about how to buy or sell a home. (insert eye roll) Well, guess what?! This is not just another real estate blog and I am not just another REALTOR®. That's right! It's 2020 and it's time to kick things up a notch!

For those of you that know me (and hopefully love me), thank you. For those of you who have no idea who I am...well, where have you been all these years?

When selling your home, the goal is to make it look its best to make a fantastic first impression on potential buyers, similar to getting dressed up for a blind date. And, just like a blind date, that pressure to impress can easily have us feeling self-conscious about each and every detail, wondering exactly what we need to do to get everything in tip top shape. 

If you’re selling your home and find yourself similarly self-conscious and stressed, here’s a handy checklist to keep you confident that you’ve done all you can before every showing.

One of the most common questions I get when working with new clients, especially first time home buyers, is “what’s the difference between a buyer’s market and a seller’s market?” These terms are commonly discussed when talking about real estate and have been particularly sensationalized on television. But while you may know them and have a general understanding of what they mean, the details of what makes these markets actually are may be a little less clear. So, let’s clarify that, shall we?

What is a Seller’s Market?

You’ve heard it over and over again, “Why are you still renting? You’re just paying someone else’s mortgage!” And, while that’s technically true, making the move from tenant to owner is a huge step, and one that should never be taken lightly! If you think you’re ready to start wading into the water of being a first time home buyer in Saskatoon, here are a few questions to ask before getting started:

 

1. Am I Financially Ready to Become a First Time Home Buyer?

Just because you’re “paying someone else’s mortgage”, doesn’t necessarily mean you can afford to pay your own just yet! The benefit of tenancy is the option to call it quits after the conditions of your term are met; you can just wipe your hands and walk away. As a homeowner,
