How's the market?

People always ask me; How is the market?  and they have the tendancy to follow it up with some like slow hey?  or slow eh?  since we're in Canada eh?  Well, here is my take on it!  I have been busier than ever before with buyers and sellers alike this year, specifically since the election in April.  Prior to that, it was basically at a standstill!  Indications from the Centris database show a slight decrease from last year in the 1st and 2nd quarters in Quebec as a whole.  However in my 2 main markets: Montreal and the Laurentians, things have been moving.  Not bidding wars like Toronto metropolitan properties, but a healthy turnover of listings especially considering the high volume of supply vs demand.  I'm not trying to toot my own horn, but I personally have completed 13 transactions since April 1,2014.  Only 3 prior to that in 2014 (before election day) .  I have a good team working with me that I owe a great deal of credit to (Carol Ann Sirard, Angela Langtry, Ann Jeffreys and the irreplacable Marie-Élaine at our Century 21 office in St-Sauveur)  These lovely ladies have closed numerous other deals on their own as well!  We all breathed a collective sigh of relief in April when the PQ lost by a landslide.  I am not an expert in politics, but there is one thing that I can say without a shadow of a doubt.  A PQ majority (which would have the possiblity of a sovereign Quebec on their agenda) is bad for business in the Quebec Real Estate World.  Considering that is my business, I am happy with the outcome.  And after all, who would want to separate from the best country in the World?  So when people ask me how the market is now I can confidently say that it is healthy!
