Your Realtor will help you act quickly. Demand is high in Calgary, and as a result, well-priced listings sell fast.

Your Realtor’s job is to help you keep your emotions in check and assist you make a sound financial decision. If you are willing to pay over the asking price, how much is reasonable?
