Congratulations to us! We have been named a WINNER in the Calgary Herald and Calgary Sun Readers Choice Award Contest. We are super proud to be a part of this amazing team. Read the full article below:
While the showing activity has continued to decrease through November and December, approximately 50% of the showings continue to occur in the $300,000 - $500,000 price range. In November we had over 4,800 showings which helps explain the uptick of 8.5% in sales that we experienced in the first week of December. Most interestingly is that the $700,000 + markets have had the least amount of fluctuations in showings, and actually saw a modest increase of showings the week of Dec 2 - 9 over the week prior.
Well... December is on us again and visions of sugar plums are creeping in to my subconcious. The REAL ESTATE market in SUNDRE is a wee bit quiet. Christmas can do that! CIR REALTY in SUNDRE is having an open house from 3-? today(November 29). Stop in and have a glass of Christmas cheer with our REALTORS!
It's been a while since our last post and much has happened. Debra King and Dan Webster were both top producers for CIR REALTY in September and working hard to get there in October as well!! Things have tapered off in the SUNDRE REAL ESTATE world but now that the election's over we're anticipating a renewal in REAL ESTATE interest in the SUNDRE and MOUNTAIN VIEW COUNTY markets. If we can be of assistance to you in your search for a new HOME or ACREAGE or if we can help you market your current property, give one of the REAL ESTATE AGENTS at CIR REALTY in SUNDRE a holler and we'll get 'er done for you!

Stop in and say HI to Bev and the rest of the crew!
The long debate of Variable vs. Fixed. We have some answers that may hep you and your clients decided which option is best.
Variable vs. Fixed is Two Bets
#1 Interest expense – Currently there is a 1% difference between variable and fixed. As long as it takes Bank of Canada to move up .25% at a time you have saved the money. Bank of Canada would have to increase 9+ times.
#2 Payout Exposure – In a 5 year fixed with ever Charter Bank and Credit Union the Penalty Math is approx. 4.5% penalty on the mortgage. So on a $400,000 mortgage that costs the client $18,000. 6 out of 10 Canadians break their mortgage. A Variable Penalty works out to .5% of the penalty.
Difference = $16,000
Just on the payout penalty alone we have been able to save them $16,000 in penalty charges with this option. Plus any money they would have saved while making payments at the lower interest rate. This is very important for you the realtor. Say you have a client who wants to sell their property and find a new one. But the new property wont work for porting mortgage (maybe it is out of province, a different type of property or many other scenarios) it could kill the deal for you if the client has a $18,000 penalty vs. a $2000.00 penalty. This is important information for the client to understand and the banks aren’t going to share this with you because it cuts into their products. I will be sure to explain it so they understand the risks and the rewards.
5 year variable rate is at Prime -.1.00%
5 year fixed is 3.44%
THE SUNDRE HOME TEAM WOULD LIKE TO WELCOME JEAN JONES TO OUR OFFICE.
JEAN IS A NEW REALTOR AND READY TO WORK!
COME ON IN AND MEET JEAN AS SHE BEGINS HER NEW CAREER!!
Fianally! There is now only one CIR REALTY OFFICE IN SUNDRE. THE OFFICE AT 102 CENTRE STREET N IS THE OFFICE FOR CIR REALTY AND HOPEFULLY, IT WILL BE YOUR OFFICE OF CHOICE FOR ALL YOUR REAL ESTATE NEEDS IN THE SUNDRE AREA.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON!
Thanks to you... 2017 was a fantastic year!
One of our 2017 goals was to increase our market share lead over the #2 brokerage. As you can see, we accomplished this goal in a BIG way! But right from the start we knew the cards were stacked in our favor. We have the very best Realtor Group in the industry, the best Support Staff, the best Management Team and the best Partners and Preferred Suppliers. We have the TEAM that is genuinely hard to beat.
So as you can probably guess, one of our 2018 goals is to increase our market share lead even further.
During 2017 CIR grew by 52 Realtors, and one of our goals this year is to grow by 52 Realtors once again. Can I ask for your help on this? Your industry connections and your strong reputation can make all the difference in helping us attract the high caliber people we want to see on Team Blue.
And don't forget, many of you already know that we want to establish a 5th Calgary Office. This new office will be in the far south part of Calgary - south of Fish Creek Park and close to Macleod Trail. And just like your current 4 Calgary offices, this 5th office will be available to you 24/7/365.... another big advantage to you and your clients. But one vitally important condition before we can open this new office: Team Blue must become 750 Realtors strong. If we grow by 52 Realtors we WILL reach this goal!
And let me finish by saying..... if there is anything that we can do to help you achieve your 2018 goals, just let us know. We are always here for you. Your success is our success. All the best!
We, at CIR REALTY on Centre Street in SUNDRE, want to wish all our REAL ESTATE BUYERS AND SELLERS, both past and present, and future, a spectacular year in 2018!
CONGRATULATIONS TEAM BLUE
