Our Team works not just with Residential Resale Homes, we also work with clients on Investment Properties and Leasing as our services. There has always been a lot of confusion with leases, many questions that Landlords and Tenants leave to chance. A lease is a binding, legal agreement in writing. That said, anything that contravenes the Landlord Tenant Act, even if you have written it into a lease agreement, will be null and void. Our Landlord Tenant Act, in Ontario, and their laws, supersede anything we write into a lease agreement that is not per the Act. 

For example, the Act states that a Landlord is responsible to keep a property in a state of good repair, this includes, but is not limited to, lawn maintenance and snow removal. One of the

    What will the year hold for the real estate market? Are we still in Seller's Market? Will home prices continue to rise? Are interest rates going to skyrocket? What is up with the "new" mortgage rules? We study the predictions and closely watch the patterns with what has been happening in the local market here in Halton & Hamilton Regions.

         After the craziness with Real Estate, this time last year, with the lowest inventory ever in the history of MLS, everyone is curious how 2018 is going to fair. We saw an increase of inventory suddenly in May 2017, that continued until November, and though prices did not drop, they stabilized holding the 25-30% increase in value, there were fewer sales happening. That said, 2017 was a record breaking year

In our areas, Burlington, Oakville and Hamilton, it is a year round HOT Real Estate Market. Interest rates are still at all time lows, our unemployment rates are at historical lows and the Canadian economy is booming- our real estate market is driven by these factors and basic Supply & Demand. 

      The only time of year we see a bit of slow down, no matter what is happening with mortgage rules and the real estate market predictions, is the Holiday Season or "off season". People get busy with events, parties, work functions, family and trying to take a break, and this is the BEST time, for you as a Buyer, to get a bit of a break on pricing & competition! When the world seems to be shutting down and in Holiday mode, our team is here, diligently working

What is the MOST frequently asked question we are getting now?  The most asked question: What is happening with our Real Estate Markets?

        I would like to clarify & explain exactly that, so we can eliminate all of the confusion the news is causing. From 2016 to 2017, from the GTA, to Halton and into the Hamilton Region, our prices increased 25-30%, depending on your exact location. The good news for Homeowners is this record breaking increase has held strong and is not going to decline. We saw a record inventory low at the beginning of 2017, from January to May, causing multiple offers on most homes for sale and our prices were becoming so high that we all knew it couldn’t last forever. The days where we would tell you that you don’t even need to
