“On Wednesday, the Canadian Real Estate Association released its MLS Home Price Index which indicated Calgary prices in December were up 8.74 per cent from a year ago while the aggregate across the country, encompassing 11 major markets, rose by 4.31 per cent.

The CREA report followed Tuesday’s Teranet-National Bank National Composite House Price Index report which said Calgary led the nation with a 6.5 per cent hike in prices for repeat home sales.”

Granted, searching for houses for sale in Calgary is not always an easy task. People have many options to choose from, ranging from houses with ideal prices to search engines with multiple results. Still, they can find their desired homes by trying out the following tips.

Read on the neighbourhood

People generally search homes online via postal code. Nowadays, not only can they look up homes in a location, but they can also read more information about it. By getting more information on a given neighbourhood, people gain important information such as available local amenities and the standard of living.

Refine the home search

The more specific the search, the fewer homes people can choose. People can refine their searches based on price, amenities, and more. One service from Christine Ordze, an expert Calgary Realtor, allows people to save their searches and receive emails of available properties with their preferences.

Review agent recommendations

Some agents pay some real estate sites for titles like ‘Pro’ and ‘VIP’ to feature their listings more prominently. Rather than be impressed with those titles, people should review agents’ property recommendations. Doing so allows people to read between the lines and see what the property really offers.

By trying out the above tips, people can narrow their selections of Calgary houses for sale. The sooner they start, the sooner they can find suitable homes while the real estate market is good.
