Interest rates rising, more balanced market

The bullish market that we've had for the past number of years in the GTA, that meant a shortage of listings and buyers scrambling to find a home to buy, triggering bidding wars with multiple offers, has finally ended.  However, home sales declined in May 2017, probably due to the Ontario housing plan which created some uneasiness for both buyers and sellers.  2018 has seen a return to a more balanced market, which means fewer bidding wars, and buyers now have an opportunity to do their due dilligence on a home (e.g. home inspection), BEFORE committing to purchasing the home.   Having an experienced Realtor to guide buyers and sellers through this challenging market is more important than ever.  Average days on the market to sell a home, has increased to 60 days, and buyers now have the luxury to take their time and even include home inspection and finance inspection clauses in their offers.  

When it comes to buying or selling a home, the Realtor you choose is vital to your success!  Hard work, dedication and 22 years of knowledge and experience is the reason I am consistently one of the top salespeople for RE/MAX Aboutowne Realty.  My clients get the highest level of representation and guidance and I make sure their needs are being met.  As a real estate investor and award-winning Realtor, I bring first hand experience and an honest, common sense approach to Real Estate.

I love working in the Oakville and Burlington area, and know and understand why these 2 communities are consistently ranked as best places to live, raise children and retire by MoneySense Magazine. 

Selling your home?  I believe that every home deserves its own custom strategy and marketing approach.  My professional services include a detailed analysis and aggressive marketing plan to ensure top dollar.  If you're thinking of selling, I would be happy to provide you with a FREE Home Evaluation.  Ask me about our global website which translates our listings into over 40 different languages and currencies.  You never know where the buyer for your home is coming from!

If you have any general questions about buying or selling real estate, please contact me.  I am happy to help you achieve your real estate dreams and goals.
