Week 28 – Opportunities for buyers and sellers

Greetings, everyone! Hope you’re have a great start to the year so far.

As we mark our 28th week of weekly update videos, I extend my gratitude to each of you for your continued support. If you find value in what we share, a subscription, like, or share on our YouTube channel would be fantastic.

**Bank of Canada Announcements: Awaiting Tomorrow’s Outlook**

As we anticipate the Bank of Canada’s announcement tomorrow,  inflation numbers, which have shown a slight increase. Talks about a potential Bank of Canada rate uptick have circulated, but my prediction leans toward them holding rates for the time being. Keep an eye on future updates as we delve into the specifics post-announcement next week.

**Market Dynamics Unveiled**

Now, let’s dive into our market insights for the downtown surrounding areas:

1. **Downtown Area:** We’ve observed a promising uptick in condo sales, offering potential opportunities for both buyers and sellers. Fresh listings are gaining attention, presenting a window for sellers, while the lower inventory benefits savvy buyers.

2. **Don Mills:** Still in a slower pace, there’s an upswing in Freehold sales. Opportunities for negotiation are emerging, particularly for listings with longer market presence.

3. **Leaside Davisville Area:** Witnessing an uptick in new listings but a slight dip in sales. Days on market are a tad higher, presenting negotiation opportunities for attentive buyers.

4. **Durham Side:** A bustling scene with an impressive increase in Freehold sales and a notable uptick in condo sales. Opportunities for both buyers and sellers abound, especially in negotiating prices.

**Strategic Moves for Buyers and Sellers: Early Action Matters**

For sellers contemplating a listing in the upcoming months, consider the advantage of entering the market early, avoiding the rush and tapping into pent-up demand. Buyers, on the other hand, may find negotiation opportunities, especially with listings that have been on the market longer.

Whether you’re considering a move or merely staying informed, talking to your mortgage broker or real estate agent (Team Compton) is invaluable.
