Does Canada's Housing Market Have You Spooked?

Are you one of those unlucky folks currently on the real estate rollercoaster ride? Some say it’s scarier than the gut-wrenching pain when eating a Carolina Reaper, officially the World’s Hottest Pepper. It received that accolade in 2013 and then again in 2018 with an even higher Scoville Heat Units (SHU) rating. SHU is a way of quantifying how spicy a pepper is by measuring the concentration of capsaicinoids. Funny how this October newsletter doesn’t feature a pumpkin…

Here are a few things are clients are concerned about these days:

  • Feel the sharp pain and regret of overpaying in bidding wars a few months ago?
  • Bought high, overpaid, and now stuck with your existing property not selling?
  • Facing a bleak prospect of much higher rates for your investment property that didn’t even close yet?
