April 19, 2018 - Spring Market Update - April
Hi this is Amaal from Keller Williams Energy. Today I just wanted to quickly send you a video in regard to the spring market for the first quarter 2018; versus the first quarter 201. Lots of people are wondering what's happening in the market, especially with the way the media is going on about it. The radio is always talking about how the market has crashed.That is not true.
Let's bring things more into perspective - so we're gonna focus in Durham Region: Durham Region prices have dropped by fourteen percent - that's not bad because really last year we were getting a 40 percent return. So if we focus on that number that we're still up by 25 percent on our return.
When we do sell our property you feel much better. Sales have gone down, but guess what, last year we didn't have that much inventory anyway. We have like point 7 months of inventory - 0.7 less than a month of inventory for three month. In fact, it was half a month of inventory for three months. Now we have two months of inventory at any given time, which is great, now it's more balanced so the numbers are here, if you want more specific numbers - like a detached home, semi or you know townhouse or because you're in Ajax and not in Pickering or you're in Oshawa or Farrington somewhere and you need more specific numbers based on your property type and you're in your city, Please feel free to call me. Email me or text me and I will send that over to you.
It does not look bad. Durham Region is doing really well. The sales are getting better and spring market is thriving now. We are one of the better regions in the GTA; so make the most of it. If you need to list your property and you're worried, I would not worry about it. I would list my property and be glad that were not crashing!
Have yourself a great one, and feel free to call me anytime! 6470408-9938

Hi this is Amaal, from Keller Williams! I wanted to talk to you about home improvements.Those normally take a backseat because of budgets and that's normal because it does cost money to do those except that if you really wanted to add value to your property and give your property a fresh look even though you're not selling you're still adding value to your property what you could do is take advantage of your tax returns. So here's what some of the people are doing once they get their tax returns: A kitchen remodeling B .curb appeal C. floors and D. bathrooms Not only will you feel good when you're coming home but mostly you will be adding value to your property think about it as your savings account so whenever you're ready to sell property value will increase.
