James Wruth Shares Insider Real Estate Tips and Opportunities

I believe that relationships are more important than transactions. I started a career in real estate in 2006 with Remax Crown Real Estate In Regina, and since that time, I have built a Regina real estate business around that philosophy. I aim to provide personalized one-on-one service to fully understand you and your real estate goals and be 100% accountable to you. In my latest real estate tip, I share some expert insights and real estate opportunities for both buyers and sellers! 

Navigating the dynamic realm of real estate requires staying abreast of evolving trends, a crucial endeavour for buyers and sellers. This article delves into a wide-ranging array of expert insights designed to address the distinctive challenges and prospects within the real estate industry. These tips can help you better anticipate the trends shaping the 2024 real estate landscape, whether you are a home buyer or seller.

Homebuyer Tips

Embrace Technological Advancements

These days, technology plays an integral role in the home-buying process. Virtual reality tours, augmented reality applications, and online platforms offer immersive experiences, enabling buyers to explore properties from the comfort of their homes. Maintaining a tech-savvy approach streamlines your search and facilitates informed decisions. 

Neighbourhood Trends

Beyond individual properties, understanding trends in specific neighbourhoods is paramount. Accessing information about local schools, amenities, and future development plans significantly influences decision-making. Work with a knowledgeable local agent and engage with community platforms to comprehensively understand the property, neighbourhood, and community dynamics.

Explore Flexible Financing Options

Tailor your research to financing options that align with your needs. Given fluctuating interest rates and evolving mortgage products, collaborating closely with financial advisors is essential for securing the best deal. A solid understanding of the economic landscape ensures a purchase that aligns with your long-term goals. Prioritize communication with mortgage brokers and financial advisors to make informed decisions.

Prioritize Home Inspection

Invest time and resources in a thorough home inspection that goes beyond standard checklists. To avoid post-purchase surprises, focus on potential future issues, such as plumbing and electrical systems. Patience in closing on your dream house, coupled with a meticulous home inspection, can prevent costly repairs in the initial year of homeownership.

Insights for Sellers

Enhance Digital Presence 

Collaborate with a local REALTOR® who crafts an engaging marketing campaign with high-quality photos, engaging descriptions and a marketing plan! A robust online presence attracts potential buyers and sets your property apart, potentially leading to a faster and more competitive sale. Be sure to choose a realtor that is more than just posting- list, list, list, sell, sell, sell ( and most definitely avoid one that does not post online at all!). Choose a local real estate expert who provides tips, insights, information and education - one who builds a following, is friendly and builds a brand people can trust! 

Strategic Pricing

In a dynamic market, pricing becomes pivotal. Leverage data analytics and consult with an experienced real estate professional to determine the optimal pricing strategy for your property. Competitive pricing facilitates quicker sales, while strategic negotiations ensure you receive the best value for your home.

Prioritize Energy Efficiency

Acknowledge the increasing importance of environmental considerations. Make your home more sustainable by incorporating eco-friendly elements like high-efficiency furnaces, energy-efficient windows, appliances, and smart home systems. These features not only add value but also broaden your potential buyer pool. There are government grants available to assist! 

Curb Appeal Matters

First impressions are crucial. Invest in enhancing your property's curb appeal with well-maintained landscaping, fresh paint, and an inviting entrance. A visually appealing exterior significantly influences a buyer's decision.


In the intricate world of real estate, adaptation to the evolving landscape is imperative for both buyers and sellers. The trends in 2024 underscore the importance of embracing technology, staying informed about neighbourhood dynamics, and exploring flexible financing options for buyers. On the other hand, sellers can distinguish their properties by enhancing their digital presence, adopting strategic pricing, incorporating energy-efficient features, and prioritizing curb appeal. Armed with these insider tips, confidently navigate the 2024 real estate landscape.

James Wruth 2024 Regina Housing Market Forecast.

I believe that relationships are more important than transactions. I started a career in real estate in 2006 with Remax Crown Real Estate In Regina, and since that time, I have built a Regina real estate business around that philosophy. I aim to provide personalized one-on-one service to fully understand you and your real estate goals and be 100% accountable to you. My latest real estate article is a 2024 Regina Housing Market forecast.

REGINA, SK, Housing Market Outlook

The Regina housing market experienced a 4.4 percent year-over-year decline in the average sale price from 2022 to 2023, dropping from $321,480 to $307,214. Concurrently, sales decreased by 7.1 percent, falling from 3,248 in 2022 to 3,016 in 2023. Anticipated for 2024 is a two percent decrease in the average residential sales price across all property types, along with a projected two percent decline in the number of sales transactions.


Despite the low inventory, the market is active, especially among empty nesters and downsizers exploring the condo market for smaller, affordable spaces with access to amenities like grocery stores, parks, and recreational activities. Homebuyers in Regina prioritize affordability and proximity to schools for liveability.

Ongoing new construction developments align with plans driven by the provincial PST rebate and the Secondary Suite Incentive Program, encouraging developers to complete and initiate new projects. Though recently implemented, these government initiatives are expected to enhance affordability and increase rental units in the region.

In 2024, Regina's housing market is projected to maintain balance, influenced by low inventory and higher interest rates. Jeremy Cossette, Manager at RE/MAX Crown Real Estate, notes that despite rising interest rates, the market remains attractive due to affordability compared to other urban centers nationwide. Young families and immigrants seeking single-detached homes are key contributors to sustained demand, thereby keeping inventory low.

Top Regina Real Estate Trends:

1. Regina is presently a balanced market, and this equilibrium is expected to persist in 2024.
2. Single-detached homes are anticipated to experience heightened demand in 2024, with first-time homebuyers and new immigrants eyeing homes in the $200,000 to $400,000 range for an affordable entry into the housing market.
3. Government initiatives such as the provincial PST rebate for new construction and the Secondary Suite Incentive Program are poised to stimulate new construction developments in the region.
4. Although interest rates have led to a slight decrease in demand, Regina's affordability remains a compelling factor drawing homebuyers into the market.
5. Proximity to schools emerges as a growing trend in many young families' homebuying decisions.

New to Canada and wondering if you’re eligible to buy a house in Regina Saskatchewan?

I believe that relationships are more important than transactions. I started a career in real estate in 2006 with REMAX Crown Real Estate In Regina, and since that time, I have built a Regina real estate business around that philosophy. My goal is a personalized one-on-one service to fully understand you and your real estate goals and to be 100% accountable to you. In my latest blog post, I share information for new immigrants to Regina who may be seeking information about what is required to purchase a property in the Queen City! 


Are you new to Canada and wondering if you’re eligible to buy a house in Saskatchewan?

 


First and foremost—congrats! Let me be the first to welcome you to this great province of ours! 

Question: Can you purchase a home as a new immigrant? 

The answer? YES!  As a newcomer to Canada, you can buy a home, even if you have immigrated here very recently. Plus, new immigrants to Canada can often qualify for a mortgage, so long as all standard financial requirements are met.

  1. Anyone in Canada who can afford the costs of homeownership is eligible to own a home. In fact, you do not have to be a resident or citizen to own a home. 

  2. You must abide by Canadian taxation and real estate laws. 

Most Canadian banks and lenders are more than happy to work with newcomers, even if they don’t have an established Canadian credit history. Canada is actually one of a handful of countries in the world where non-residents can qualify for a mortgage—they can even be at the same interest rates as citizens. Some of the larger lenders and banks have dedicated newcomer mortgage programs to help you finance your first home, as they understand the challenges that you might face. 

PRE-APPROVAL - THE FIRST STEP. 

In Canada, most banks and mortgage lenders offer pre-approval, which is a process where you learn the maximum loan amount for which you can qualify. This process also helps you estimate your potential mortgage payments. Sometimes, lenders will even let you lock in a current interest rate for up to 4 months!

To get pre-approved for a mortgage, you normally have to provide information about your income, assets, debts, and current employment information.

After you submit this information, a lender will assess your application and either approve or refuse your request within about 5 business days. If approved, you can start shopping for a home in Saskatchewan that falls within your pre-approval value limits. 

Time to start looking for your new home in Regina and area?  

During this stage, you’ll likely want to enlist the help of an experienced Regina real estate agent. When you are ready to make an offer on your desired property they will help you navigate all of the paperwork and processes involved. Making an offer on a house in Saskatchewan generally involves a deposit. The deposit and the down payment are different. Homebuyers provide a deposit at the time of making an offer to demonstrate to the sellers that they’re serious buyers but be warned, you would generally lose your deposit if you walk away from the agreement before the sale is finalized. 

The deposit amount is rolled into your down payment when you close on the house. The down payment is the total amount that you put down on your home in cash as part of the mortgage lending process-  In Canada, the minimum down payment is 5% for properties up to $500,000, but some lenders may require more. When the purchase price is above $500,000, the minimum down payment is 5% for the first $500,000 and 10% for the remaining portion.

If you were pre-approved for a loan, you’ll continue working with your lender to get your mortgage formally approved. This normally happens within a few weeks. Your realtor will assist you with organizing your home inspection, signing any necessary paperwork, and finalizing your home purchase.

LAST STEP Enjoy your new home and I hope you enjoy living the Canadian dream in your new home

James Wruth Real Estate Advice About Selling Your Property in The New Year

I believe that relationships are more important than transactions. I started a career in real estate in 2006 with REMAX Crown Real Estate In Regina, and since that time, I have built a Regina real estate business around that philosophy. My goal is a personalized one-on-one service to fully understand you and your real estate goals and to be 100% accountable to you. In my latest blog post, I share five New Year’s Real Estate resolutions! 


Are you planning to sell your home in the new year?

Regardless of season or market conditions, remember that you only have one chance to make a good first impression. Make it memorable for all the right reasons. Before listing your home, commit to these five New Year’s Resolutions to help ensure the quickest sale for the highest price.

Mark Your Calendar

Set your listing date well in advance to help you anticipate, plan and prepare to sell your home. The process of changing homes has a lot of moving parts and is a coordinated effort between you and your team of experts. Think real estate agent, lender, lawyer, home inspector, trades, movers… the list continues. This is especially the case if you’ll also be buying a new home at the same time, as many people do. Reach out to a selling agent early on in the process to discuss your options, get important advice and get the ball rolling.

Repair and Replace

When planning to sell your home, assess its condition and make repairs before listing. Cracked drywall, stained carpets, burned-out light bulbs and other minor damage is easy to fix and won’t break the bank, but left un-repaired, could impact offers. TIP: It can be tough to evaluate your own home. Have your agent or a friend tour your home and offer constructive criticism. Find out which renovations offer the best return on investment here.

Get Comparables

Three to six months before your home hits the market, wave your agent start scanning comparable listings to get a ballpark price estimate. Keep in mind that a variety of factors may affect your home’s selling price, like lot size; landscaping and interior finishes; proximity to busy streets, public transit, schools and parks; or supply and demand in the marketplace. Your agent will assess your home just prior to listing, to ensure you set the right price to attract serious buyers.

Cut the Clutter

A cluttered home can suggest lack of space, which can impact offers. Depending on lifestyle and length of time spent in the home, this can be a big undertaking. Take it step by step, room by room, and you’ll get through it. Be honest about what you want, need and love, and what you can do without. The bonus? You won’t have to pack, move and clutter your new home with stuff you don’t want.

Stage to Sell

When it’s time to sell your home, stage it to show it in the best possible light. This includes packing up family photos and personal m (prospective buyers want to picture themselves in the home, not you!), putting the non-essential items into storage (or the donation bin!) and perhaps renting some furnishings that take your home to the next level. Your agent may offer staging as part of their suite of services, or will be able to put you in touch with a professional stager to help get the job done.

Hiring the right real estate agent is key to a successful sale, and it’s important to know that many agents specialize in listing homes versus helping you buy a home

Considering Breaking Up With Your Favourite Home? 5 Helpful Tips from James Wruth

Owning a house is like ‘being in a long-term relationship’, so it can be hard to break up! 

I believe that relationships are more important than transactions. I started a career in real estate in 2006 with REMAX Crown Real Estate In Regina, and since that time, I have built a Regina real estate business around that philosophy. My goal is a personalized one-on-one service to fully understand you and your real estate goals and to be 100% accountable to you. In my latest blog post, I acknowledge that selling a home you love is NOT easy. 



Breakin' Up Is Hard To Do! 

So goes the famous Neil Sedaka song... and sometimes that is the truth!  

You grew up in that home, or you raised your own family inside those four walls, so when it’s time to move on, downsize or sell for a multitude of reasons, it can very hard emotionally to let go! 

Another reason why a breakup with your home is hard to go through can be explained by the Endowment Effect. This economic theory finds that people overvalue what they already own. They are comfortable with the status quo and feel threatened by change and the unfamiliar, which makes losing or parting from what they have particularly difficult. Now, they believe that their loss is more than it actually is.


Sure, this house was perfect, but the home selling and buying process isn’t finding “the one” that sticks around forever. It’s more about finding the home that fits your needs best based on your current situation. That gets easier if you can feel good about your next decision and give yourself closure over the past—so let’s dive into 5 tips to help you work through it.


Tip #1: Make sure you’re ready to ' FOLD It' from a financial perspective

When you mix money and love, things get complicated. Just ask the 1 in 5 partners who choose to keep their finances separate. Applying this division of church and state to selling the house can suck some of the emotion out of the process.

Above how you feel about the selling situation, you need to figure out the hard financials and timing of this sale. Can you afford to sell this home and buy another, and is now the time to do it?

You can start by getting a ballpark figure for what your home would go for in the current market. Then, factor in your expenses like home prep, repairs, and agent commissions. Make sure that after you sell the house, you’ll have enough money to pay off the mortgage and then some, ideally enough for a sizable down payment on the next house.

Then, find out if it’s the best time to sell your home in your market. Depending on where you live, seasonality makes a big impact—in fact, data shows that selling at an opportune moment can help you increase your profits significantly.

Take away?
 
Similar to a relationship break-up, selling a home shouldn’t be a rash, spur of the moment decision. 

Tip#2: Reframe your mindset to focus on your ‘Why’

The first question I ask my seller clients is, “Why Are you Selling?”

Maybe you crave the carefree lifestyle that apartment/ condo living can provide, perhaps you want to move to be closer to the grandkids, or maybe you have to buy somewhere bigger to give your family more breathing room.

Take Away?

Focusing on the logic of your reason and your why, makes it easier to harness your attention to the future. Reframe your home sale as change (good change!) rather than loss. Then, selling your house becomes an opportunity for you to move on to a different chapter of your life.


Tip #3: Keep living your best life BUT keep on keeping up with the Jones's 

The last thing you want to do after you decide to sell your house is to wallow in regrets and neglect home selling responsibilities.

Oftentimes, home sellers are also buyers, so their home purchase is contingent on their home sale. You must make sure that your home looks it's best. Then, take steps to detach from what you used to call your home. Trust your real estate agent and start the staging process. See how furniture works in different arrangements, change up the decor, and paint the walls neutral colors to begin depersonalizing the house without giving yourself whiplash. - you can find some helpful tips on curating curb appeal in the Regina real estate article I wrote about Selling A Home in A Slow Market 

Once you have put effort into making the property look it's very best,  you can channel your emotions and efforts toward figuring out what your future will look like, in terms of the house and your new neighborhood. That way, your next home becomes a productive distraction that will help you get over the initial home sale.

Take Away?
 
Be sure to keep up with maintenance and to work with your realtor to get the best price for both your existing property AND the new one!  


 

Tip #4: Do the Emotional work

So, when you sell your house, don’t be afraid to:

  • Walk-through your home and revisit old memories.

  • Reflect on how the house has served its purpose for however long you lived there.

  • Talk about how you loved living here with your spouse, children, and family members.

This type of processing helps you to accept your emotions throughout the home sale. If you want to keep a snapshot of the home, take photos and use those as emotional anchors for you to look back on in the future.
 

Take Away?

It is healthy to mourn a loss!   

Tip #5: Get proper closure

When selling a house, you don’t want to walk away with unfinished business or bitterness. You might not be emotionally prepared for the change, but don’t demand buyers to overpay for your home or leave the home in a sloppy state. Be respectful to the next set of homeowners, and take the time to get everything in shipshape for the final walkthrough.

A proper goodbye can also include a “house-cooling party” that lets you invite friends and family to your home for one last time before handing over the keys. Those who are important to you also have a chance to say goodbye to you and the home. Just don't go crazy, as the last thing you want is wine stains on those newly cleaned carpets! 

Take Away?

September 2022 Regina Real Estate Market Trends Report

Greetings Friends,

I am pleased to be able to share my 2022 September Regina Real Estate Market Report! 


SEPTEMBER 2022 Monthly Housing Market Trends Report



How Does This Compare to National Data? 

Canada's housing market experienced a minor bump in prices for August 2022, the first monthly increase in Canada’s average home price since February. For August 2022, the average home price in Canada was $637,673, up 1% from last month after decreasing on a monthly basis for five months in a row. Nationally, sales during the month of August 2022 are down 24.7% year-over-year to roughly 38,310 transactions.

Whether Canada’s housing market is seeing prices stabilize after hitting an all-time price record in February 2022 remains to be seen, as Canada’s average home price remains 4% lower year-over-year. Among factors that have spooked Canadian home buyers have been rapidly rising Canadian mortgage rates, brought about by Bank of Canada rate hikes. While Canada’s inflation rate has cooled off in recent months, current elevated levels of inflation in Canada continue to put pressure on policymakers to increase interest rates.

Compared to February 2022's peak of $816,720, the average sold price in Canada is now 22% off from that record-breaking month. This means that the average home price in Canada has now fallen by 22%, or close to $179,000, in the span of six months. Meanwhile, the MLS Benchmark Price continued to see positive annual price growth. Canada’s benchmark home price increased 7% year-over-year to $760,400 for August 2022, yet is down by 3% month-over-month. If the benchmark home price continues this trend, it will dip into negative annual change territory in the coming months.

While the average Canadian home price is down 4% year-over-year, the performance of housing markets across the country has been mixed. Some areas continued to see declines in home prices and sales, while others experienced increases on a monthly basis.

The average home price in Canada was $629,971 in July 2022, a decrease of 5% from the previous year and 5% from the previous month. This is a stunning turnaround from the extraordinary price rises seen earlier in the year when a new record was reached in February of 2022. Canada’s average home price has decreased for the sixth consecutive month. Compared to the peak of $816,720 in February 2022, the average sales price in Canada has decreased by 23%. In the previous five months, the average Canadian home price has plummeted by 23%, or around $190,000. However, the MLS Benchmark Price continues to increase annually. In July 2022, the national average home price in Canada increased by 7% year-over-year to $782,300 but fell by 3% month-over-month.

James Wruth Shares The Importance Of Being A RE/MAX Crown Real Estate Agent In Regina

Selling Your Home? James Provides 7 Expert Tips and Steps To Take

I believe that relationships are more important than transactions I started a career in real estate in 2006, and since that time I have built a Regina real estate business around that philosophy. My goal is a personalized one-on-one service to fully understand you, and your real estate goals and to be 100% accountable to you. In my latest blog post, I share tips and tricks to help sell your home in Regina! 

GETTING THE BEST PRICE FOR YOUR REGINA PROPERTY

Hiring a Regina realtor who knows how to use the psychology of sales can really pay off. Choose an experienced real estate agent who understands how to use the art of negotiation, who can salvage a potentially sour deal, apply pressure and use other successful strategies to increase your sale price.  

1. ESTABLISH A PRICE

As a Seller, you may believe your property is worth more than the Realtor wants to Initially list it. An agent may agree to list your home at a higher price, but I am of the opinion that this should only apply if you agree to drop that price within a specified period (usually in 15-day increments). Realtors who use this technique may actually be looking out for your best interest. Agreeing on a plan to reduce the price gradually helps build rapport and trust with clients who may be stuck on a number. My job as a Regina realtor is to know the market and I do my research to make sure I know the optimum listing price for every property I agree to sell based on the individual seller's unique set of circumstances. 

2. PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE 

You need to shift your perspective and view your home through the eyes of the prospective buyers. Ask yourself what you would expect. My role as your Regina Real Estate agent will be to help guide you and give you tips on de-cluttering and other things that will help your home be more sellable. Now is not the time to be attached or sentimental about furniture, art and belongings. 

3. BE AVAILABLE FOR SHOWINGS 

Potential buyers may ask to see your home on short notice. It is best if you can accommodate these requests, you never want to miss a potential sale. After each showing, be assured that I will follow up with the people who viewed your home to hear their feedback, which I will share. 

4. YOU GET AN OFFER ...OR MULTIPLE OFFERS

If everything goes well, a buyer’s agent will present your agent with an offer. You have three choices – accept the offer, counter the offer or reject the offer. Be assured that my knowledge of your needs will enable me to represent you in the best way possible.

Next Steps!  

5. UNDER CONTRACT 

At this point, you have accepted an offer and have agreed to all the terms set forth in the contract.

6. CONDITIONAL PHASE 

When the agreement of purchase and sale is accepted and signed by all parties, the conditional phase begins. The buyers will have a pre-determined amount of time to fulfill items likely including home inspection, financing, home insurance, etc. The date the conditions are removed, you now have a firm and binding contract for the sale of your home.

SOLD!

7. CLOSING

This is the date of transfer of funds and ownership that was agreed upon in your binding contract. I will make sure that you know that you are packed up and ready to go before this date
