Tip – Get your house ready to list! It’s Spring!
March 21st marks the first day of spring!! After a record breaking winter, spring’s arrival is welcome. Despite the cold temperatures and snow the Collingwood Real Estate market has done very well, with Collingwood, the Blue Mountains, Meaford, Grey Highlands, Wasaga Beach & Clearview boasting the best January for sales since 2004, and up 39.1% from January! February had an increase of 16.3% so within average expectations for the month, but a drop from previous months. This seems to be due to an overall lack of active listings, down 25.5% from this time last year (February new listings are down 21%), so not a lack of demand or Buyers but a lack of home to choose from.
If you have been considering listing your home now is the time. Spring is the perfect time of year to list, and with the low inventory you will have a better chance of selling your home. Give me a call and we can discuss how to prepare your home for sale, things to do to sell your property for the best price and I can explain the process. If you will also be purchasing in the area we can get listings together and begin looking at houses for sale. We have a great automated program that can send you properties as they are listed on our board, before they hit the MLS system. It’s a good idea to do this even a few months ahead of when you will be buying so you can have a good grasp of the market.
