Realtor Safety

Knowledge is power when it comes to REALTOR® safety. Kerry Suave, security expert and director of StreetSense Safety and Security Inc., could not agree more, especially in a career where everyday duties present risks.

"REALTORS® have a potentially dangerous job. They often work alone, meet strangers in empty homes and commercial buildings, and travel with strangers in their vehicles," he said.

Despite potential dangers, Suave says REALTORS® and the general public can incorporate simple practices into their lives to dramatically reduce risk.

"Our instincts are very good at acting as an early warning system for the body, but we often choose to ignore them, or downplay what they are telling us," says Suave.

Sales on the March

It appears the weather isn't the only thing taking a turn for the better lately, as Calgary's real estate picture brightened considerably in March. According to CREB®, residential sales in the city continued to rise last month, reaching 2,167 units, an increase of 12.6 per cent over last March.

After the first quarter of 2012, sales are up by 7.3 per cent over the same time last year. While the increase is significant, when compared to historic activity, residential sales continue to remain below the long-term trend. Monthly new listings remain slightly lower than last year, whereas year-to-date figures show 7.2 per cent fewer listings have come onto the market in the first quarter of this year.
