Realtors are frequently asked, “Is Fall a good time to sell our home?” The answer is not so much the season as to what your needs are. If you wish to move within the next six to twelve months, it is probably better to sell sooner rather than later. Your property will normally get much more exposure now than in December and January. Housing sales tend to level off in late summer and then regain momentum in October when there is more time for buyers to browse. Kids are back in school and there is still enough sunlight to view a property later in the day.
With prices remaining strong in Oakville and interest rates low, it could be the best time to either move-up, downsize or right-size! Oakville is enjoying a healthy market with the number of residential sales up by 5.5% year to date and the average sale price has risen by 8.5% year to date. It appears that Canadian home owners have turned a deaf ear to the negative economic situation shaking housing markets in Europe and the United States, our resilient domestic economy coupled with the effect of ultra low interest rates has given our local sellers and buyers the confidence to continue to invest in the Oakville real estate market.
An excellent place to consider investing is in our luxury condo market. Whether you are an investor, a first time buyer or someone wanting a special place to retire, there are a number of projects available to the discriminating buyer.
