Real Estate Market April 2021

Will the market crash? What’s happening in the market right now? Take a moment and listen to the video I just made regarding the market.  We are definitely seeing a softening of the market but by no means a crash.  What do I mean by softening?  More sellers are putting there houses on the market so there is less competition. We are seeing not as many people through houses, less offers on each house and not as many are going way over asking.  The Toronto Real Estate Board just put out it’s numbers for last month and they are slightly […]

5 year Market Review

As most of you know the market is HOT HOT HOT🔥🔥🔥 . I’d like to take a few minutes and talk about this and how it affects buyers. First, I often get asked, “when will this market calm down and will the market crash?” Obviously, I do not have an answer to this or a crystal ball. (If I did, that lotto max might me mine 😉 ) Here’s what I can say. The first couple months of the year are very busy. Inventory is low and we have more buyers looking for property than we have properties available to […]

What is a buyers agent and why you need one.

What is a buyers agent and why you need one. So what is a buyers agent? Some of you may have heard the term but what does it actually mean?  As real estate professionals we work with both buyers and sellers. There is usually alot of information on selling your home and what an agent can do to assist you. As a buyer you will still need the services of a real estate professional. You can reach out to the salesperson who has the property listed however their first responsibility is to their client, the seller.  I always advice people […]

ORGANIZING YOUR WAY INTO 2020

To me a New Year means time to do some organization in my home.  I have collected odds and ends over the year, as well as everything that was accumulated from the holiday season.  I personally just feel better without this clutter in my life. It’s also easier to function when you know where everything is.  The big issue I think for all of us is where to start.  It can be so intimidating and seems like such an overwhelming process. I asked my friend Kimberley Underwood of KALM Solutions for some advice to share with all of you.  Kim […]

Is Winter The Right Time To Move

Here’s a great article regarding selling in the winter. https://www.realtor.ca/blog/postpage/11471/1362/5-reasons-winter-is-a-chill-time-to-buy-a-house?fbclid=IwAR3YbWSdq0gaUMOzxoMvLcrzLVI7FKfm6nHUXlzPqsPSueGhco7TdWQBSh0 I know, I know,  most of us dislike winter, it’s cold, dreary, and dirty.  That being said after the holidays there are hardly any houses on the market, yet there are always people either looking to buy or having to buy for whatever reason.  The spring market always starts off very slow. However for the last couple of years the sale prices are very competitive. I have always encouraged people that are thinking of selling in March or April to put their house up a couple months early.  You can […]
