What will the Spring Market hold for Southern Ontario?
That is a question we hear every day! What is really going to happen? Will prices drop? Is this a good time to buy or invest in real estate? The questions go on and on!
Let’s look at some of the leading indicators. The first would be rising interest rates. The Bank of Canada has raised the price lending rate by .25% and had stated their intention to raise them incrementally from the historic lows they are now, perhaps up to a full 1% increase. The interest rate on a mortgage is one of the largest factors in a buyer’s purchasing power. The result will be a tempering of the market as it will lower the amount a buyer can finance.
The unknown factors. There are always unknown factors in the market. The Ukraine situation, Gas prices, Government Policy changes, Tightening Mortgage Requirements and other factors could affect the market. However, here in Southern Ontario – especially in the greater Hamilton, Niagara and Brantford markets, there are also some very positive indicators of a remaining strong real estate market. These include strong employment, increased immigration, and buyer proximity
to Toronto as more and more people from Toronto are considering relocating to our area. There are, of course, other factors that could affect the market. For the short term, we see these forces causing a balancing effect. Demand for Real Estate in our area is still so strong we do not predict a crash, but the crazy acceleration in price appreciation may very well stop. What are your thoughts? As well, if you are thinking of making a move, do give us a call. The call is free, the advice is priceless!
Goal setting is one of the largest parts of being results driven, but your goals need to
be SMART. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time Based.
Every part of SMART needs to be thoroughly thought out when creating a goal. If you are working every day without a goal in mind, you may find yourself complacent and apathetic when going to work. Work like this lacks the purpose and drive that a SMART goal can provide, so make sure your goals are SMART.
Once you have your BIG GOALS written down using the SMART goal method – then commit and go all in on achieving them.

In 2021, we made it our mission to donate $10,000 and we are thrilled to announce that we surpassed our goal and donated $15,000 in 2021! This was made possible with the help of Referrals from people like you!
