georgian triangle: As You See It – A Georgian Triangle Camera Adventure - 05/05/10 11:21 AM
After writing about 500 posts over 3 years on my "other" blog connected to my personal website,  I decided it might be fun to shake things up a little. Over 3,000 people a month are reading that blog now and I'm sure some are getting a little tired of only hearing or seeing my point of view!

georgian triangle: Real Estate Market Forecast for 2010 - 01/06/10 02:08 AM
Trying to do a forecast of what is likely to happen in the real estate market in 2010 for the Collingwood, Blue Mountain and Georgian Triangle area is a bit like playing at a roulette table.  There are way too many strategies, systems, odds and lucky omens to consider.

First, a quick explanation about the data to follow. The Georgian Triangle area traditionally includes Collingwood, Blue Mountain, Wasaga Beach, Clearview, Grey Highlands and Meaford.  The data collected by our Georgian Triangle Real Estate Board MLS® however, captures a wider area that includes towns on the edges of our typical trading area.

The June stats are in and there are some pleasant surprises and some very positive news.  Look at this chart:

For the third straight month in a row, we saw the number of MLS® listings for the month drop below 2008 levels with 11.6% fewer new listings when compared to June 2008.  The BIG NEWS however is this... for the first time in 14 months, the number of sales for the month exceeded the previous year.  Yes, for the first time since April, 2008, the number of sales last month exceeded June '08 by a substantial 16%.

georgian triangle: Wasaga Beach and Collingwood Posted Real Estate Price Gains in 2008 - 02/01/09 11:23 AM
Although it's now February, people are still asking about prices in our various neighbourhoods in the Georgian Triangle.  So, in the spirit of wrapping up the 2008 statistics, here is a chart showing the change in the average sale prices between 2007 and 2008 by area:
