Not very many are available for sale, but just the thought of moving is exciting. Relocating takes time and consideration. It is best to make a good impression when selling the home. Consult with a Home Inspector to validate the soundness of your investment. Maybe a few perks could help, like a fresh coat of paint, replacement here and there, etc.

"Look for double-digit annual price increases to cease later in 2010, as new listings rebound from the low levels experienced in 2009. Increased listings will give buyers more choices resulting in less upward pressure on home prices" said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis.
