Many buyers are looking at Ottawa's First Time Home Buyer Incentive that launches this week. If you're able to make a purchase in today's market, you're buying instant equity for when the market turns back around. If you've found a property you'd like to get a closer look at Schedule a Viewing today or Contact Us for more information!
If possible, potential buyers may want to take advantage of the market conditions & reduced lending rates. Some may still face difficulties with mortgage restrictions or failed attempts at selling their existing home. Accurate & strategic pricing is key to over coming an extended listing. Seller's should not be discouraged, & rather be encouraged by the advantage of also purchasing within such a market. Unless of course, you're downsizing. You may want to hang on to your investment until trends become more favorable to sell, typically spring time! It looks as if the buyer's advantage will continue for the remainder of this season. Whether you're buying or selling, or you're simply looking for more information, Contact Us & we'll get you some answers.
