The difference in winning or losing is most often… not quitting.    ~Walt Disney
 
Regardless of what our business is actually doing today, there’s no question that we are working through allot of uncertainty in the market place right now, and it can be hard to ignore all the news reports and comments that are coming from both inside and outside our industry.  So how do you get through all this negativity and doom-and-gloom conversations that you might be hearing in your office?
 
This month’s newsletter explains how to draw upon the power of persistence that lives within us. Success begins with our mindset and is achieved through our continued, patient effort.
 
Unfortunately, the people that you also spend your professional time with, also play a very big roll on your mindset.  It is said that, "you are the average of the people that you keep company with".  Look around you. Do you spend your office time with positive, forward thinking, productive people?
 
If the answer to the question above is anything but "most definately yes", please contact me for a one-on-one confidential business review at shamis@remax.net or 780-439-7000. Armed with the proper mindset and a properly formulated plan in hand, there is no reason for anything but success.

A new wave of first-time homebuyers is hitting Canada. In a special series of stories, four RE/MAX agents explain how they accommodate first-time buyers in their markets. Their various approaches contain a wide variety of good ideas.

 
Expert No. 1: Alex Wilson, RE/MAX Condos Plus, Toronto, Ontario
For Alex Wilson, first-time buyers account for the vast majority of his clientele, largely because they're his peers.

"I do a lot of online networking through social media," says Wilson, a 100 Percent Club member. "I'm spending time developing my Facebook profile and business website to create a couple of good 'destinations' for people to find me."

 
Tips: 'Get to know them and build trust'

1. Boost face time – I throw a lot of client-appreciation and charity events to build up my network of friends and customers. I do almost no traditional marketing, such as flyers and billboards. Hundreds come to my annual charity boat cruise on Lake Ontario and other gatherings like Buffalo Bills tailgate parties. They get to know me and what I'm all about. There's no hard selling, but I let them know I'm an agent and they can approach me when they have real estate questions.
 
2. Get on Facebook – It's a big method of promotion, because that's where most young first-timers are. At each event I host, I collect everyone's contact information and later add as many as I can as Facebook friends. I'm up to 750 or so. Then through Facebook and word of mouth, I advertise my next event. It's not a fan page, just my regular Facebook page, and it's completely open for viewing. I only add people as friends who I've met and know. Facebook is a great way to communicate.
 
3. Wear kid gloves – When I'm first dealing with first-time buyers, they're very nervous about going into an incredible amount of debt. I want to make them comfortable with the entire process, step-by-step. That means starting with prequalification, understanding amortization and feeling comfortable with a certain mortgage payment. After initial "training," I give them a little real estate test to make sure they know where we're headed.

RE/MAX Recognized as the Most Trusted Real Estate Brand in Canada

April 28, 2010

(Kelowna, BC) – RE/MAX has been awarded Most Trusted Residential REALTOR® as voted on by readers of Reader’s Digest magazine.  The survey conducted for the annual awards revealed that the majority of Canadians trust RE/MAX for all their residential real estate needs, ranking RE/MAX associates five-times more ‘trusted’ than the second most trusted brand.                                              

“Our associates should be proud and honoured to receive the confidence of Canadian consumers as the Most Trusted Residential REALTOR®,” says Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President for RE/MAX of Western Canada.  “It’s an inspiring merit that the best trained and most experienced agents have received for providing valuable assistance to so many families.” 

Ash believes that this distinction awarded to Canadian RE/MAX associates is due in part to two notable attributes.  The first being “Premier Community Citizenship” - a quality that RE/MAX associates share by being ever-mindful of the impact they make locally as they are involved with their communities through volunteering, fund-raising and more.  

The second is that RE/MAX associates carry more professional designations than any other REALTOR® in Canada.  RE/MAX agents are invested in additional education in specialized areas such as Senior’s representation, commercial brokerage and luxury homes.

RE/MAX is Canada's leading real estate organization with over 17,500 sales associates situated throughout its more than 680 independently-owned and operated offices across the country.  The RE/MAX franchise network, now in its 37th year, is a global real estate system operating in more than 70 countries.  Over 6,500 independently-owned offices engage over 115,000 member sales associates who lead the industry in professional designations, experience and production while providing real estate services in residential, commercial, referral, and asset management.  For more information, visit: www.remax.ca.

People have a natural desire to feel connected to others.  As a real estate professional, investing time to learn more about the communities you work in will help ensure your success. Not only will you be able to better serve your clients by providing neighborhood information and finding homes that best suit their needs, but your presence and interest in the community will show others that you care about giving them excellent service, resulting in more leads.
 
Organize opportunities for people to get together.  They will make connections and build a stronger community while you are able to explain the value of working by referral.  The great service you provide will be reciprocated as your customers return to the housing market in the years ahead and refer you to others they know.
 

This newsletter includes tips on how to position yourself as the industry expert in the neighborhoods you serve through connections with local residents and businesses.  Please feel free to contact me if you need help getting started or visit www.joinrivercity.ca.

March 10, 2010- Welcome to March and hopefully the end of the winter months!  I would like to take a moment and talk to you about the highlights of the Edmonton and area real estate market in February and compare it to what we have seen last year.  As a large portion of our market is either single family homes or condominiums, my stats and figures are going to be based on these two segments.

 

Market Activity...

Starting with homes coming on the market.. February 2010 saw a total of 2478 new listing hit the market.  This is down by 3.4% compared to the 2564 in 2009.  This is still however up 13.8% from January 2010. The length of time that homes listed in February 2009 was seen spending on the market was 61 Days.

 

Selling trends... January 2010 had 926 homes and condo that sold.  In February we saw a jump of 38.6% to 1283 units.  February 2009 was a much softer month for sales with 1082 units successfully selling – or 15.7% less.  The speed at which homes are selling has definitely improved as well.  IN 2009 only 15.6% of units were selling in 15 days or less on the market.  In 2010 we saw huge jump to 24.9% of listings were selling in the same time frame.  The lower inventory levels have also increased the number of properties selling over list price by 96.7% - that’s almost double!

 

Along with units coming to market and units sold there are other stats that we look at to gauge the market.

 

                                    Jan 2010       Feb 2010       Feb 2009                   2009 vs 2010

Day on Market          52                    45                    62                                - 27.4%

Avg List $                   $327,655       $331,280       $328,969                   +0.7%

Avg Sale $                 $318,507       $321,888       $314,394                   +2.4%

List/Sale $ ratio         97.2%             97.2%             95.6%                         +1.7%

 

With inventory levels at where they are, a huge drop in average days on market and a slightly higher average sale price compared to 2009, I see a healthy real estate market for the coming months.  An increase in average list price to sale price ratio indicates that homes are either being priced better and that buyer confidence in future house values is improving.

 

 

RE/MAX Associates still number one!

RE/MAX Associates continue to excel and were the number one choice of Consumers in the area.  RE/MAX Associates account for 42.8% of the transactions recorded by the MLS system in 2009 - an increase from 2008.  This is a major accomplishment as all other major franchises in the area combined for only 39.4% of the market.  This includes Realty Executives, Royal Lepage, Century 21, Coldwell Banker, and Sutton.

RE/MAX River City Plays Role in Helping RE/MAX Network Raise $100 Million for Children’s Miracle Network

 

 

Edmonton March 10, 2010— RE/MAX Associates at RE/MAX River City have been supporters of Children's Miracle Network since 1992 and have made regular donations to the children’s charity. These funds have helped RE/MAX, a leading real estate franchisor, arrive at an amazing milestone: $100 million dollars raised over the past 18 years for Children’s Miracle Network, which raises funds for more than 170 pediatric hospitals. In doing so, RE/MAX became one of the top three Children's Miracle Network donors of all time.

 

The funds raised by RE/MAX River City go to the Stollery Children's Hospital to help treat children needing expert medical care. “Supporting our local Children's Miracle Network hospital is part of the RE/MAX ethic. Our agents are immensely proud to support the Stollery Children's Hospital,” said Shami Sandhu.”We all feel it is important to give back to this community in which we earn our living and raise our families.”

 

The donations from hundreds of RE/MAX offices and thousands of RE/MAX Associates amount to millions of dollars each year for children’s hospitals. RE/MAX primarily raises funds through the Miracle Home® program where Associates make a contribution to Children’s Miracle Network with each closed transaction. RE/MAX offices and agents also sponsor golf tournaments, host art auctions and organize a variety of other fundraising activities throughout the year.

 

“When you take into account that the real estate industry was hit harder than any other by the economic recession, it’s overwhelming that RE/MAX Associates raised $7 million for Children’s Miracle Network in 2009 alone, bringing their total to a landmark $100 million,” said Scott Burt, president and CEO, Children’s Miracle Network.

 

”Knowing that children’s hospitals have been impacted deeply by the downturn in philanthropic giving, RE/MAX Associates worked harder than ever to support Children’s Miracle Network and the children in our communities,” said Vinnie Tracey, president, RE/MAX International, Inc.

 

RE/MAX has been a corporate fundraising sponsor since 1992 and has raised $100 million for children’s hospital over the past 18 years.These much needed funds given to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals may be used for specialized medical care, research and education.

With the worst of the recession over, residential real estate markets in major Canadian centres are poised for growth in the final quarter of 2009, according to a report released today by RE/MAX.

The RE/MAX Bricks and Mortar Report found the bounce back that began in early Spring has made this recession one of the shortest on record for real estate. Low interest rates, pent-up demand, and improved affordability levels have all played a role in the recovery now well-underway. Percentage increases in sales from January to August 2009 were led by Vancouver, (up a substantial 14 per cent to 23,158), Victoria (up 7.4 per cent to 5,266), Edmonton (up 6.2 per cent to 13,691), Regina (up five per cent to 2,597), Ottawa (up 2.4 per cent to 10,830) and Toronto (up 1.8 per cent to 58,421). Housing values are already ahead of record-breaking 2008 levels in seven of the 11 markets surveyed, including Newfoundland-Labrador (18.1 per cent year to $203,584), Regina (6.4 per cent to $244,088), Halifax-Dartmouth (3.5 per cent to $239,633), Winnipeg (3.5 per cent to $207,006), Ottawa (3.3 per cent to $301,684), and Toronto (up 0.3 per cent to $385,978). Nationally, average price hovers at $312,585, up 0.5 per cent over one year ago.

“The strength of the residential housing sector cross-country has taken many economists and housing analysts by surprise once again,” says Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada. “In terms of its impact on the resale market, by historical standards, this recession was one of the mildest. The resilience of bricks and mortar has been demonstrated time and again. While there may still be some challenges down the road, the worst is definitely behind us in the housing industry.”

The recovery of Canada’s resale housing markets speaks to the tremendous value Canadians place on the importance of owning a home. The number of Canadians overall who own a home has increased since 1981 from 62.1 per cent to 68.4 per cent, with some markets posting even higher homeownership rates — Calgary (74.1), St. John’s (71.5), Regina (70.1), and Edmonton (69.2). Significant gains have also been made over the same period in markets such as Ottawa — where homeownership levels rose from 51.4 per cent to 66.7 per cent — and Toronto, where levels rose fro m 57.3 to 67.6 per cent.

“Markets are heating up across the country,” says Michael Polzler, Executive Vice President, RE/MAX Ontario-Atlantic Canada. “Purchasers are clearly taking advantage of affordable prices and rock bottom interest rates. Those who missed the boat in years past have found that sitting on the sidelines can be a costly move. Prices are on the upswing and inventory levels are tightening, so the push toward homeownership is expected to continue throughout the Fall and possibly into early 2010.”

Over the past thirty years, the Canadian residential real estate market has experienced three major downturns – 1981, 1989, and 2008. While there have also been regional fluctuations throughout the years, return on investment over this period has been substantial, with Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, Regina and Ottawa leading the country in terms of price appreciation.

The overall stability of real estate as an investment has also played a role. Markets like Halifax-Dartmouth, Regina, Ottawa, Winnipeg and London have provided steady returns (especially in recent years), with minimal fluctuation.

Public sentiment can best be illustrated by a recent Angus Reid Omnibus Survey* that asked the question “In which do you feel more comfortable investing your money? The stock market or real estate.” Out of 1,000 respondents from coast-to-coast, 77 per cent chose real estate. The results of the RE/MAX Bricks and Mortar Report are clearly representative of this national dynamic at work.

RE/MAX is Canada’s leading real estate organization with over 17,000 sales associates situated throughout its more than 677 independently-owned and operated offices across the country. The RE/MAX franchise network, now in its 36th year, is a global real estate system operating in more than 70 countries. Over 6,700 independently-owned offices engage nearly 100,000 member sales associates who lead the industry in professional designations, experience and production while providing real estate services in residential, commercial, referral, and asset management. For more information, visit: www.remax.ca.

* The Angus Reid Omnibus Survey was conducted on September 15, 2009 and yields a margin of error of +3.1 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
