GTA Real Estate Marketplace Very Eventful!

The last month or so has been very eventful in the GTA real estate marketplace.

  • First of all, the Bank of Canada reduced the prime rate .5% last week. There has not been such a large drop since just after 911. Read More

  • Secondly, the weather in the GTA has been a major player in slowing down our market somewhat, only time will tell, and soon, if our market will surge as it has in the past 13 years in March/April.

  • Lastly, the US real estate market and economy is reeling from the sub-prime crisis. We are about 5 months into a recession in the US and most are predicting another 8 to 16 months of this. Read more about the Sub-Prime Meltdown

How much this will affect our GTA real estate marketplace and the Canadian economy in general is not known, but so far we are holding our own and many suggest that we will not feel the effects of the US slowdown and our economy will be fine for the short and long term. I tend to agree.
