Typically you'll only see a handful of listings in this community available for sale on the Calgary MLS® this is in part due to a few factors, including an overall housing count of under 400 homes, a much higher average price point (which hovers around the $2,000,000 consistently) It's important that you work with a Calgary Real Estate team that is not only well versed in this market, knowing the inventory (past and present) but having access to off market properties through proprietary prospecting endeavors that target and identify Britannia home sellers who are interested in fair market offers for their homes, but do not desire having a sign in their lawn, nor consistent showing requests, pictures of their home available for everyone to see, etc. Our off market database provides value to both home buyers in Britannia as well as sellers, we're able to provide qualified, serious, off market buyers to our sellers, and for our home buyers, we're able to showcase properties above and beyond your typical MLS® listings.
