Real estate figures for May saw 309 residential sales – up from April’s 240, but average days to sell increased from 35 to 37 days. The median sales price stayed steady at $534,500 – up 11.4% on April 2016.
For sale properties hover around the late 700’s beginning June, but some vendors prefer the warmer months to enter the market and a decline in available properties is expected. Buyer interest across the board – price bands and locations – might add pressure to prices.
It is a good time to speak to Linda should you consider a real estate move. Why wait for competition if you can make your property stand out in the traditionally slower months? Buyers are not deterred by seasons – their needs take preference and now is the time to address it!

Vendors generally prefer to list in the warmer months and less choice during the colder months tend to put pressure on prices. Buyers enter the market constantly – they invest in real estate and are not seasonal driven, but rather by limited choice.
Should you have a move in mind in the near future, it may well be an opportunity to list now. Why wait for increased competition when your property can be in high demand right now?

Starting out in a new country can be a daunting experience. The new owners are thrilled with their new home and the opportunities it give them to meet new neighbours. The kids have made friends in a child-friendly, gated community and it spills over to their new school across the road. How good is that?
We wish them many happy years in their new country – and now in their new home! They will love to explore the neighbourhood and the many walks in the area – not to mention a choice of playgrounds available to the kids to enjoy….
Vendors usually move on to a new home due to changing circumstances. A growing family with a need for more space, empty nesters scaling down or youngsters starting out with their first homes – all anticipate the big move!
It is not that often that the old house is moved along as well – literally. I could not resist to snap this one… on the move on a massive truck and the driver waiting to get the wheels rolling to get it to its new address.
Anything is possible! Should you have a section and want an instant home, you might be in luck too.
