Spring Market Report
Just a quick note to say hello and give you an update on the Spring Market. Since we moved the clocks ahead for daylight savings, one can't help but think about the coming of warmer weather and all the changes it will bring.
One of the more certain aspects of the Spring Market is the time of year we see a significant increase in the online activity of people searching for homes on our websites. With the recent drop of 50 basis points to the BOC lending rate, Buyers are eager to get pre-qualified for a mortgage and excited to get out and find a home! We also see an increase in Sellers on our Real Estate websites looking at listings, trying to get a read on the market. We have the answers for you, all you need to do is call or text my direct line 904-409-9967.
Ben and I attended in early February the Durham Edition of TRREB’s 2020 Market Year in Review, Outlook & Economic Summit, which provided us with some great information. A key stat they indicated was that In the 2nd half of 2019, we started seeing stronger demand for housing as buyers who were on the sidelines due to the Stress Test adjusted their housing preferences. If you would like a digital copy of this report please call - text 905-409-9967 or email us at email@example.com.
We have seen the market rebound in January and February with a strong Seller's market for homes priced under 600K, which fuels more move-up buyers to the next price level, where we are seeing stronger sales and higher prices. This bodes well for those Sellers looking to make a move this spring. My advice to those Sellers: Take advantage of this early spring market while inventory is low and creating a Seller’s market in this price range.
