Good morning Nina,

Your report clearly shows the Thornhill market is still strong! 11 days on market is very good so these 505 homes are still enjoying record appreciation numbers.

I was watching Fox Business news and the investment broker who was filling in for the host talked about how people should not be buying real estate. I clicked into her twitter account and asked her which state she held a real estate license in (since she was handing out home purchase advice). The answer back was NONE. Stupid is as stupid does.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty hi Jeff... don't know about you, but the older I get the less I pay attention to these "market experts." Perhaps she thinks people should just keep renting a big bucks and throwing money away.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP good morning, Patricia... after so many years of artificially low interest rates, which we knew could not last, it's easy to forget that serious home buyers found a way to buy homes when rates were 8%, 10%, 15%, etc.
