Interest Rate Move

Mortgage %
The Bank of Canada announced that it is lowering its target for the overnight rate by one-quarter of one percentage point to 3/4 per cent.

This decision is in response to the recent sharp drop in oil prices, which will be negative for growth and underlying inflation in Canada. Read more


Getting Out Of The Gate Early 

If you have been considering listing your home for sale, you may want to take advantage of the lower than average inventory and interest rates as we move into the Spring Market. It's always about "supply and demand" and right now there appears to be more Buyers than Sellers in our local market which trends toward a "Sellers Market" 


The listing graph below shows a similar trend year over year with the peaks being the Spring and Fall markets. If you are in a position to choose the time you move, it will serve you well to be strategic with timing when listing your home.
