Yes, this is Toronto! The Spring Equinox brought a long awaited wave of warmth and a burst of beauty with it. A list of sun-loving flowers is posted on the DCT Blog to help you plan your garden.

Sellers ready to put a sign on the lawn before March break had a positive jump on the Spring market. The lack of inventory had buyers lining up for open houses and offering beyond sellers' expectations. Sale-to-list price sales in February were at 100% for the first time since June 2022. If you are considering making a move now would be a good time to discuss your options. We can help you declutter, repair, stage, sell and plan your next chapter.

February GTA market stats revealed year-over-year new listings were down 40.9%, sales were down 47%, and the average price was down 17.9%. Month-over-Month however sales were up by 54.3% from January, new listings were up by 8.8% and the average sales price was up by 5.4%. A breakdown of GTA condo and home style stats is listed below.

We are not seeing the distress sales previously predicted. Similar to deferred payments during Covid, banks have worked with struggling variable-rate clients to keep them in their homes. CIBC reported that 27% of their mortgages now have 35-year amortizations. Mortgage broker David Laroch explains why the global financial shakedown may induce mortgage rate cuts sooner than expected.

Now for a little Real Escapism, this month we've included a Georgian Bay Island cottage for a glimpse of glorious Canadian lake property. Our associate Shawn Woof will be at the Cottage Show this weekend and can help you find your lakeside dream. Email us today for FREE COTTAGE SHOW TICKETS this weekend.

For our friends celebrating Ramadan, Ramadan Mubarak.

Here's to more Vitamin D and a strong spring market!

The inflation debate has suddenly taken a backseat to concerns about systemic financial risk in both the US and Europe. With fixed rates tied to bond rates does this mean we may see rate cuts in 2023?
