- To own or not to own? Why Rent When You Can Buy? Make a decision regarding owning your own home. New, Resale, or Condo?
- Matching Dreams With Reality. Your first home may not be your dream home, but it will be your starter home and a way to get started in a long term Real Estate investment. How much home can you afford? What can you spend each month on mortgage payments?
- Several things determine the price that you can pay for your first home, the gross income from your family will determine the monthly payments you can afford to pay.
- Possibly the most important factor is the down payment. Fortunately in Alberta, as little as 5% can be put down for the down payment.
- Closing costs are lawyer costs, tax adjustments, appraisal fees, and possibly a Real Property Report.

List your home with The ACTION JACKSON'S; it's up us to find a buyer fast.
We will arrange appointments to view the home with you when it is convenient to both parties. Sometimes, however, prospects are on tight schedules, requiring your Real Estate Agent to make last-minute appointments. Don't get annoyed. We'd like to have a dollar for every sale completion last minute appointment. Believe us, these are the best buyers. Why? Often, prospects who are transferring into your area are on short house hunting visits. They don't have the luxury of time on their side, and they want and need a house NOW- not in a year. The busy buyer is also more apt to make an immediate offer rather than one who has all the time in the world. So, if you really want to sell your house in a hurry, treat the last-minute appointment as an opportunity - not an inconvenience.
