Our thoughts on home affordability over the next year 📩
Home affordability will likely look different next year than it does today…
So, if you’ve been thinking about buying a home and you’re in the financial position to do so, now may be your time.
Between interest rates, home inventory, and prices there’s a lot that can change over the next year.
Remember, no one has a crystal ball.
But if you’re waiting on the perfect time to buy, let’s have a conversation about what that looks like for you and start to prepare for the future – whether that’s a year from now or just a few months.
Stay safe and talk soon

What Else We're Talking About
The Sunflower Skirts - HERstory
Gallery Vertigo, in partnership with Artist Michelle Loughery and The Wayfinder Sunflower Project, is proud to present this community art installation exploring patterns and ornamentation on recycled clothing embellished with stitch, paint, glass, beadwork, and surface design. Each piece is an artist’s interpretation of a personal immigrant story or that of a friend, reflecting their journeys in Canada.
Curated by Aj Jaeger - Artist, it is a collection of textile artists who came together to create a story installation led by senior artists in a skills exchange intergenerational story experience.
Featured Artists include Leslie Barnes, Anette Cameron, Lesley Comassar, Gloria Daly, Angela Hansen, Anni Hunt, Jennifer Greenwood, Aj Jaeger, Brittany Loughery Kette, Patricia Kozler, Michelle Loughery, Catherine Nicholls, Stacey Phinnemore, Brigitte Red, and Janet Scruggs.
The exhibit will run for the months of September and October. An opening reception will be held on Friday, September 23, 2022 from 6:00 – 8:00 with light refreshments by donation.
