It seems we are getting through our HST "hangover" the way most people get over a real one. We knew it would hurt, but the pain is only temporary, so we are optimistic about the future. The year to date stats for my real estate board show an overall increase in units sold when compared to last year (1069 to 926). An increase of 15%.
The fact is, now is a great time to be a buyer. Money is cheap, and there is a lot of properties available. On the selling side, there are also positives. Money is cheap, and buyers know it is a good time to buy, especially if they read this blog.
