September 2008 eNewsletter
I hope that you had a great summer, and that you are enjoying this post-long weekend/back-to-school period!
As we enter fall, the real estate market is heading into a busy seasonal period. Despite a rainy summer filled with lots of negative news about the economy, etc., prices actually rose a bit in the GTA. Really, a 1% increase in the average sale price is more an indication of a ‘flat’ or ‘balanced’ market. From here, we’ll have to wait and see what happens in September and October to get some direction from the market. However, early indications are that the market will be busy this fall: the number of listings has increased slightly over the last couple of weeks, with some recent sales generating competition. Now that the media is no longer bombarding people with daily reports of impending doom, we just might see a bit of optimism make its way back into the market! 🙂 I’ll keep you posted!
