Waiting for home prices to drop? Read this ⬇️

This spring, we've seen a noticeable shift: more sellers are re-entering the market, particularly in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal.

But while the number of homes for sale is going up, the buying activity hasn't picked up at the same pace.

Despite the increase in listings, Robert Hogue from RBC highlights that buyers are still facing challenges—namely the high interest rates that continue to limit affordability.

This situation creates a unique market dynamic.

Prices are slightly increasing, but the overall sales volume remains lower than usual.

And according to Hogue, we might not see a significant market recovery until we experience substantial rate cuts, projected to start later this year.

We understand that buying or selling a home can be a complex and stressful process, especially in today's ever-changing market.

Whether you have concerns or questions about the current market conditions, or simply need advice on how to make the best decisions for your unique situation, We are here to help.

 Check out what's happening in real estate and our local communities as well as our regular features.

Our latest blog post lifts the lid on why homes listed during this time frame typically command a higher price in the market.

How much higher?

According to a recent study, listing your property in early June = a 2.3% boost in price. That’s $15,100 for the average Canadian home—(but try doing the math on your actual home value.)
