143 Lakeview Cove

Previously loved home. Not as perfect as a new home, but you get a lot more for your money! Compare the 5,445 sq. ft. lot that is 67 feet wide at the back, and 104 feet deep. It backs onto a linear pathway with a view of the golf course. The large front deck is the perfect place to catch a few rays as you enjoy your morning coffee. As you enter the home you will find the main floor den with French doors. Currently, this is being used as a dog grooming studio, so it will certainly accommodate your home office needs. The main floor laundry has an entrance from the attached double car garage. You will love the easy-care slate tile flooring that runs from the front entry all the way to the kitchen & eating nook including the 2 piece bath. There is only a bit of carpet on the stairs, as it has been replaced with easy vinyl plank flooring so the dogs and the kids can play worry-free. The large kitchen has a walk-in pantry and frosted glass cabinets with a large island. The kitchen overlooks the oversized nook and great room so you can engage with your family while preparing dinner. The yard is fully fenced and features an interlocking patio, a storage shed, and a lawn for the kids. The 2nd level features a huge master bedroom with a jetted tub, separate shower and walk-in closet in the en suite. There are three bedrooms up with a bonus room that is being used as a fourth bedroom. The basement is undeveloped. So if you could use a 2,194 sq. ft. home, with a large fenced yard this house is experienced at creating a warm loving home for a family to live and love in.

Chestermere Parade of Garage Sales 2021

Chestermere Parade of Garage Sales 2021

 

The date has been set for the Fourteenth Annual Chestermere Parade of Garage Sales 2017!   Friday September 10, Saturday, September 11 and Sunday September 12.

 

Why so late?  All of us who want a vaccination should be able to have one by then. Then we can safely have our garage sales without worrying about spreading the virus.

We really loved how the businesses got involved in previous years.  
There were 180 registered garage sales, but there were so many more that did not register.

Marjorie and Doug McKay will be sponsoring the sale.  Registration will be up by September 1st.  There will be a link from this page.  We will organize the sale by what types of items you have for sale, so that shoppers will be able to go directly to the homes that have items that interest them.  

Again links to those pages will be found on this page.

April 2021 Market in Chestermere.

April 2021 Market in Chestermere.

All Chestermere MLS Residential Sales April 2021 Absorption Rate

The absorption rate is the number of sales divided by the number of active listings in a market over 90 days.  Typically this tells us how many months it will take to deplete the inventory of homes for sale.  As you can see that varies widely by the price range of homes for sale.

The real estate market is really blowing up and I do not find that the three-month calculations can keep up with the market so I have also broken down each price range over the month of April.

Chestermere Market Statistics April 2021

All Chestermere MLS Residential Sales April 2021

In April 2021 77 homes sold through the MLS system.  The highest-priced sale was $1.080,000 which was a lakefront home.  The average sale price was $564,328.  The average days on market was 56.  The median sales price is 556,000 which is up 13% year over year from 2020.  This may be reflective of the higher-priced homes selling.   One of the first rules of real estate is that there is no such thing as an average house, so we are breaking things down by price range to help consumers figure out the market that they are interested in.

There was a record price for a resale lakefront home at over $2,000,000.  The last time a home sold for this level was 2007.  The lakefront inventory is very low. as 5 lakefront home sold in March  The inventory has been getting scooped up by savvy buyers who can see the value of waterfront property so close to Calgary.

At March 31 there were 100 listings which is down from past months.  There is less than two months of inventory on the market.  This means that we are finally in a seller’s market in most categories.  This means that we will be seeing an increase in prices.  This of course is if CMHC doesn’t interfere with the market any further.

These sales do not include new homes under contract in the four new areas of Chestermere.
