Mortgage rates.

While many potential homebuyers are adjusting their expectations in this high-rate environment and moving forward with their plans, others are sidelined.

According to a new report by the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA), it is incredibly likely that the Bank of Canada will begin lowering its policy interest rates at some point later this year.

So, what will happen if mortgage rates do drop?

The market will shift.

Buyers will sprint off the sidelines.

Prices will go up.

Competition will heat up—and buyers will need to make decisions faster than before.

The bottom line?

Buying a home is a deeply personal decision—and it might not be the right time for you, right now.

But if you are in the market to buy, and you can afford it, it might make sense to do it sooner rather than later.
