Hi, I've never written a blog before or even read one for that matter so here goes nothing! As a realtor in the City of Kawartha Lakes the most famous and common question I get asked when out and about is "How's the Market today?" That's the industry standard for "How's the Weather?". In my opinion, there's never a bad day in the real estate market. When prices are down, Buyers are frequent. When prices are up, it's a great time to sell and make a profit. Here's a link I'd like to pass along to those interested in the lastest home sales activity based on the statistics report from the Multiple Listing Service and Canadian Real Estate Boards.
This article talks about how sales increased in the last quarter of 2010 that wasn't expected, and estimates the trend for 2011 to the beginning of 2012. If you're thinking of selling or buying in the next 6 months to a year, this is an interesting article to take a look at.
Check back with me often, I will be posting interesting articles from home inspections to how to decorate your home to make it market friendly.
