THE MARKET IS "BLOOMING"


Hi, I’m Laura an inspired Realtor ® with Sutton Group - Heritage, since 2005. It's finally spring and the trees as well as the market are certainly "Blooming"!  For those of you who have been waiting to sell this season, the market has improved month over month since January. Homes that are priced correctly are seeing days on the market avg. 20 days or better. Inventory is moving this second quarter and we are calling it a balanced market, as there are enough homes (in most areas) to satisfy Buyer demand and the volume of Buyers is not too great to create the madness of "camp out front" bidding wars.
 

IN THE NEWS: The Bank of Canada announced that interest rates weregoing to be held at the benchmark rate of 1.75 and will most likely staythere for the next year or so. Good time to lock in a great rate. Visit my website lauramcbride.ca/blog/market-update/ to read the latest market stats for your area of the GTA.


Thinking of making a move this season or next? Do you have questions? I’d love to answer all of them. Call, text or email  416-579-0931 Direct

Beautiful native called Eastern Redbud. Lavender to magenta blooms cover the branches of this tree in early May, followed by a heart shaped leaf that turns a stunning yellow in the fall. Plant before August, as they don't like cold feet!

 

LAURA RECOMMENDS THIS SEASON:
I'm always thrilled to visit chef Andrea Nicholson, of Top Chef Canada & Fire Masters, and her feel good restaurant Butchie's. The menu offers an assortment of gourmet comfort food faves at an affordable price and it's the kind of place you
just want to keep coming back to - I do! There is an impressive assortment of local craft beer to pair with your meal, and the milkshakes are to die for (according to my boys). It's worth the drive if you're not quite local, as you're sure to feel right at home the moment you step foot into this "Damn Tasty" spot!
