buyers and sellers: Elegant Homes in Lorne Park, Market Watch, Betty's Personal Touch - 10/08/09 12:41 PM
Now that we have put away our shorts and tee shirts, pulled out our sweaters (and some mornings mittens), we can all settle into the routines that we put aside during the summer months.Most people were anticipating the inventory numbers to start increasing over September as potential sellers get back from summer vacation and decide to list. It hasn't happened, yet. With listings down 42%, buyers are competing for less product, which leads to "bidding wars".Homes that are priced well are not lasting on the FOR SALE list. Especially in Lorne Park and Mississauga Homes for sale. If you don't jump … (0 comments)

buyers and sellers: Natural Gas Plant, Betty's Personal Touch in Oakville - 10/04/09 11:53 AM
After months of protesting the location of a 900-megawatt natural gas plant, members of the Oakville community found out on September 30th that the Oakville site has been approved for construction. The Oakville site, located at the corner of Ford Dr. and the QEW, was one of four other sites being considered for the location. The other three sites, which were to be in the Clarkson area in Mississauga, were turned down after the combined efforts of protesting residents, politicians and health officials.So, Oakville residents do not want a power plant built in their neighbourhood? As William Mellor, from Durham, had … (0 comments)

Great Headline in the Star this morning, "MARKET ON ROBUST REBOUND - Housing sales keep climbing, fuelled by low interest rates, and solid consumer confidence".
The last couple of notices/blogs that I have sent out have been very positive. During my open houses, buyers still are asking about the recovery from this mess that we were in.

We are still seeing homes flying off the shelves … (0 comments)

"CLOUDS LIFT OVER ECONOMY"
The last couple of notices/blogs that I have sent out have been very positive. During my open houses, buyers still are asking about the recovery from this mess that we were in. It wasn't even a mess but the media was exploiting in the U.S.A. I still believe that we needed to re-educate sellers as to the value of their property and educate our buyers as to the process of purchasing a home. Mortgage rates remain great. The government has come up with massive funding. Both of these are starting to bring life back into the economy. … (0 comments)

A Balanced Housing Market Emerges"Recovery underway in key Canadian markets ends buyer dominance in resale housing," says RE/MAX Mississauga, ON. (July 13, 2009) - Pent-up demand for residential housing has bolstered sales in Canada's major markets-a clear signal that the housing sector has shifted into recovery mode, says RE/MAX.A more balanced market has emerged. This has ended the stronghold that buyers have had on the market over the past six to eight months. Canada's largest markets, Toronto and Vancouver, led the charge - with June sales among the highest in history for both local real estate boards. Check out the Market … (0 comments)

This was a great headline on the news and for anyone looking to either purchase or sell a home. The nay-sayers are saying that this won't last. These are the same guys that have said that the housing market is going to self-destruct just the way it did in the good old U.S. of A.
Multiple offers are back with a vengance. Frustrated buyers who haven't been taught the process of purchasing a home. Also, buyers who have not been advised to get their finances in order and discuss pre-approval for a mortgage cannot understand why … (0 comments)

Square One is Ontario's largest shopping mall. The Heartland Centre boasts the convenience of great stores in one place. Mississauga also provides easy access to neighbouring districts with its advanced infrastructure and transportation networks. It is also the … (0 comments)

Summer Is Almost Here and Good Real Estate NewsA week ago in the Toronto Star, Tony Wong wrote: "REAL ESTATE VIRGINS BUY IN". What does that mean? That means, first time home buyers are finally taking advantage of the low interest rates and great prices for homes. Of course the economy is on everyone's mind right now, but lower prices and low interest rates are luring them into the purchase of a home.Also, the first time homebuyer's tax credit and home renovation tax credit for 2009 have been influential factors. First time buyers are key to the market because they allow … (0 comments)

Is the Housing Market Rebounding?First-time home buyers are holding up our market as the sales of existing homes in the month of May rose by 2%. This is the first increase in more than a year. Take a look at the market watch and do some figuring.
If you compare to last year, it is still down by 1%. But, I think that most buyers and sellers are now realizing that the market is quite different from a year ago. It has taken us a few months to adjust our expectations when selling a house and not thinking of, " If … (0 comments)

In the Real Estate News insert added to the Toronto Star this morning, I spotted an interesting article. It was written by Maureen O'Neill, President of the Toronto Real Estate Board. It spoke of the technical tools of my trade -- Real Estate.When I first started in this business, I signed up to have a web site. I didn't know what to do with it so I let it sit and fester as many of agents do. I kept asking around, "Why is my site not doing anything for me?"

The hottest topic for everyone these days is the market. Although the forecast for 2009 promises more of the same, most markets are expected to weather the storm, says RE/MAX.Housing market performance will clearly be contingent on economic performance at a local, provincial, and national level in 2009. Issues affecting the overall economy are impacting housing markets across the country and the situation is not expected to be remedied until consumer confidence is restored. With inventory levels remaining stable, pent-up demand kicking into gear, and low interest rates stimulating home-buying activity, we are seeing a bounce back in various areas surrounding … (0 comments)
