Watching the housing sales pricing predictions has been as unreliable as watching the weather network lately! Previous housing forecasts predicted the market dropping in price and slowing this year! Remax forecasts a listing price increase and sales increase as people try to beat stricter mortgage regulations and an increase of interest rates, possibly followed by a slight second quarter dip before they pick up steam for the second half of the year. One thing we can all agree on is the Canadian housing market, despite a recession and global financial uncertainty has had a remarkable run! In summation, it is still a fantastic time to buy or sell real estate!
