Cooling Factors in a Hot Market

There has been a lot of things said, discussed and debated in the media recently regarding the Real Estate Market. Government regulations have been introduced with the intent or expectation of “cooling” the market. It seems that the prices are not only rising – but doing so in record numbers. It is getting (or has gotten) to a point where it is difficult to keep up.

The consumer has been inundated with new rules, policy and taxes that for the most part, only add to the confusion. You can read more about the latest round of changes here:

Buying a house should be an exciting experience and memorable for the right reasons. NOBODY should expect to be forced into making a huge decision with partial information and only moments to do it. The stress and anxiety alone can often result in buyer remorse. Is that the way you want to live in your new home? Not to mention the long terms financial stress that can come from a quick decision.

My ONLY and BEST advice that I can offer to minimize (because there will always be some stress) the impact of all of this, is to find an agent who is willing to take the time to work with YOUR needs. Afterall, it is about you and not any imposed pressure or agenda's that don't support yours. Work with an agent within your boundaries.

I would love to be your agent. I will take the time to work with you and find out what's important for you and your family. However, if it can’t be me, please do yourself a favour and take the time to do your research, make a connection with someone you trust so that you can move forward without having to look back.

Thanks for reading, please feel free to add your thoughts, comments or call me.
