Some of the most visited and popular pages on our blog are about real property reports and the cost of a compliance stamp from the City of Calgary.

Great news! The City of Calgary has announced a fee relief program with Planning & Development deferring and/or waiving some fee payments in 2020.

What does this mean? Until October 31, 2020, the $199 fee for real property report compliance is WAIVED! 

A current RPR with compliance is an important part of a home sale so this is a great opportunity for any Calgary homeowner who has updated their property with a new deck or fence.

As a Realtor for over 20 years in Calgary, I've experienced so many unique situations and watched other professionals fix small problems enough times that sometimes - ok, more than sometimes - I get called upon by my friends & clients for non real estate advice. I'm far from being a plumber but this "hissing" sound was something I had seen many times on Toto toilets.

Calgary realtor or plumber?

Calgary has notoriously "hard" water and its high mineral and chlorine content will eventually eat away at the rubber inside the toilet fill valve assembly. I had previously helped a friend install a Korky replacement fill valve but noticed afterwards there is a replaceable rubber valve available if you're willing to take the assembly apart. I tried it out myself and was able to do the

For 2020, RE/MAX projects that Calgary will continue to be a buyer's market due to Alberta's economy and higher unemployment rate. Overall housing affordability remains - compared to other major cities - low, as low priced condos allow buyers to enter the housing market. Average home prices are not expected to change from 2019 with the average detached single family home remaining at $460,532.

Calgary's luxury home market in 2020 will be driven by move-up buyers and foreign buyers although the population will increase mostly with newcomers arriving from other parts of Alberta. Condos will continue to be attractive to first time buyers and younger families as inventory increases of quality units under $300,000.

Opened in June 2019, the Bonavista Downs Community Disc Golf Course is Calgary's newest "9 holes, 9 baskets" disc golf course. This course is located on Lake Huron Crescent SE at the Bow Bottom Baseball Fields in Bonavista Downs at the intersections of Anderson Trail, Deerfoot Trail and Bow Bottom Trail. 

Bonavista Downs Community Disc Golf Course Basket Hole Chains

Bonavista's is a free walk-on course and you're able to use your Frisbee or Ultimate Frisbee but disc golf is generally played with a set of discs which, like golf clubs, all have a different purpose. At a minimum, you'd want to have a driver, a mid-range, and a putter (you likely won't lose track of your discs at this smaller course but most players carry extras of each disc). Golf discs are rated by their speed, glide, fade & turn abilities with
