The Past Year's Market.
The Canadian market started out with the usual doom and gloom, which was fanned by the national media and the global economic recession. However, our local market soon picked up and overall, it did reasonably well. Of the approximate 316 residential listings there were 159 sales as of the beginning of December, close to 50%. Sales of properties under the $200,000 mark led the way, by far. Recreational property sales, while still below normal compared to the early to mid 2000's, were up noticeably this past year.
It is still a good time to be buying or selling, as interest rates are still very reasonable and appear to remain so, as long as the economy stays in modest gains.
