REAL ESTATE UPDATE
Estate Board reported that single-family homes sales have increased
by four per cent over last year at this time. Condominiums are
selling quite well with the average time on the market being just 31
days. If you are one of the many Canadians who are wondering where
our real estate market may be heading, here are a few facts that you
might want to know.
that real estate is a cyclical business. There are several signs
that we may be about to enter a new cycle according to many industry
experts. Very low interest rates have been in place for a few years
now and this has already attracted many people out of the rental
market. To a large extent, pent-up demand for housing has now been
satisfied as renters wanting to step up into home ownership have
already made their move. Further proof of this situation is the fact
that rental vacancy rates are now on the rise in many urban centers
across the country.
interest rates have begun to inch upwards. The Bank of Canada

news for buyers, because there’s more to choose from and perhaps
even a little less competition for available listings. Buyers should
not be too confident of capitalizing on this shift. Smartly priced
homes in desirable locations will continue to be snapped up quickly.
Home values are still projected to climb in the coming year, just at
a more modest pace.
inventory of listings tends to extend the length of time a property
is on the market before it sells. That may not come as good news if
you’re a seller. However, while it may take your home a little
longer to sell than in the height of the boom, the good news is that
homes will continue to command good prices. Just be prepared to give
