If you own a house in Edmonton, there are a few natural elements to be aware of depending on your Edmonton community. Edmonton has areas where we have soft soil and higher water tables. Below is a perfect Edmonton House Maintenance checklist to prevent major future water concerns. 

 

  • Downspouts and gutters: Pull debris and leaves from downspouts and gutters. Repair any gutters that have pulled away from your house. Run a water hose on the roof of the house and check for proper drainage. If leaks exist, dry the area and use an epoxy to seal the leak.
  • Siding, Stucco, Wood: Remove the dirt off your siding or stucco with a pressure wash. If your house has wood siding, ensure that all surfaces are covered by a weather friendly paint. This is also a great time to update the exterior color of your home and fill in any broken stucco (usually found near window edges).
  • Cleaning: Spring is a perfect time to wash windows sills, exterior doors, and screens. Replace, tighten or paint any broken, missing or worn hardware and replace screens with holes. Using your old towels will also be a great reason to buy new ones.
  • Grading: Take a walk around your house to see if all grading is sloped away from the foundation. If not, add some soil. This is one of the best and cheapest maintenance jobs you can to in your home.
  • Deck and porches: Check all decks, patios, porches, stairs, and railings for loose members and deterioration. Replace boards as needed. Don't forget to purchase pressure treated ones. Spruce this area up and create a warming curb appeal with a fresh coat of paint.
  • Landscape: This is a perfect time to trim back overgrown tree branches and bushes. Rotitil your gardens, remove pet stained spots and fertilizer to your grass.
  • Tool Check: Check all your spring tools are in working order and all together. Check your lawnmower, oil & gas refills, Water hoses, Rain buckets, etc.

Understanding Buyers Brokerage Agreements

Buyer Brokerage Agreements have been around for several years, and only recently has been mandated for real estate agents to have buyers under agreement when working in a "client status". This legal change created security for both consumers and real estates in Edmonton and throughout Alberta. This form states the responsibilities of both the buyer and their real estate agent including...

 



  • The mandated Fiduciary Duties, to protect interests of the buyer
  • The buyer cannot hire more than one broker or real estate agent to represent them
  • The term of the agreement. Depending on the real estate market and how long the real estate agent chooses to work with a buyer, this agreement is normally 30 Days to 1 year and allows enough time for the buyer to purchase a home. If the buyer has not purchased a home during the time frame, they may extend the agreement or sign with another agent.
  • The retainer fee (normally $1000 - $2500) which is held in trust by the real estate agent/broker and forms part of the buyers downpayment.  
  • Remuneration is stated in the agreement and can not be changed without written consent from all parties. This protects the agents commissions and allows the buyer to know how much the REALTOR recieves for their services. (usually paid for by the sellers real estate agent)
  • While under agreement, If the buyer elects to purchase a property without the help of their real estate agent, they will owe the agency the commission set out as per thier Buyers Brokerage Agreement.
  • This agreement also lays out the obligations and duties of the real estate agent ensuring the agency is working in the buyers best interest. Some of these obligations may include
  • Showing you all properties you may be interested in as soon as possible
  • The duation of the agreement
  • Advertising for properties which meet your search criteria
  • Pulling titles to ensure closing capacity
  • Setting you up on Auto-prospecting  
  • Fiduciary Duties of the real estate agent
  • Explaining and helping to prepare the offers to purchase
  • Negotiate favorable terms for the buyer
  • Provide a Buyers CMA to ensure you are not overpaying
  • Inform you on all aspects of your offers including any counters
  • Assist you with choses of mortgage brokers, inspectors, lawyers, etc
  • Any other relevant services you may require
