    Edmonton market

    Thanks for your reply. I decided to put the house up for sale and have a realtor. I know it may be a bad time but also like you said, having less competition is a benefit. My renters are also leaving end of april and end of May so I'm afraid it may be empty and I cannot afford to carry the...

    Making a legal suite

    Wow, thanks to all who replied. I will be thinking of the thermostat idea. The sq ft is approx 850-900sq ft. I don't exactly, there wasn't any measurements done. It does need a new kitchen and the washer/dryer is in the kitchen which is odd. The walls are drywalled. And I can't remember...

    Making a legal suite

    Hi, I have an investment property in Edmonton and want to make my in law suite into a legal suite. I know the basement windows need to be bigger and wonder what the cost would be for that.

    Looking for a lawyer for class action suit against a Prop. Manager

    Well, I am out about $8000. For me that is a big hit. And there are 3-4 of us (a well known mortgage broker being one of them)who want to go after him for what he owes. If he does this once, he's going to do it again. If we all share the cost, that would help. And is that how much it would...

    Thanks Kevin. I will check out CMHC Edmonton rental report. I will be going to Edmonton in a week and looking at a property in the Newton area. I hope that is a good pocket area because I was told the surrounding areas are kind of shady but not sure about Newton. Does anyone have...

    Best Edmonton areas

    What areas in Edmonton are recommended to invest in? I was cautioned about the east side. My price range is $290,000-$350,000. I am looking at Zones 1, 27 and 29 (Millswoods). Any other areas that are recommended would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.
