The Hocking Homes Team at Keller Williams Experience Realty, Brokerage will help you list your home and sell it fast for top market value in the Barrie Real Estate Market.
If you’ve been tossing around the idea of putting your home on the market or buying a new home, now is a great time to do so. The Canadian housing market is still considered “balanced.” For buyers this means that homes are still affordable and interest rates are low. For sellers this means that home values remain stable and are increasing in many areas.
The information we’re sending this month gives you an overview of the top reasons for buying and selling now. While page one outlines three reasons to buy, page two offers three great reasons to sell.
We’re always available to answer any questions you have about our local real estate market. If you’ve been thinking of selling your home or buying a new one, please contact us. And if you have family or friends who are thinking of buying or selling, we would love to help them as well.
