Real Estate Market in Flux

Thursday, May 09, 2013

If you've been following the real estate news at all over the past few months, you'll have seen that the market is in flux at the moment. This shift towards smaller price gains and somewhat fewer sales overall is happening at both the national level and the local level here in Toronto and the rest of southern Ontario.

In all the doom and gloom predictions, though, there are a few things you should remember if you're considering buying or selling a home. First, the experts disagree quite strongly as to whether we're seeing a protracted downturn in the market overall or, conversely, a stabilizing and balancing of a market that had been previously overheated. And second, it's important to remember that averages don't tell us the whole story, or even very much of it: if you are considering a purchase or a sale, you'll need to know about the micromarket(s) you're dealing with. That's why you need a knowledgeable agent who understands the market as a whole and the micromarket in which you'll be buying or selling.

If you'd like to discuss how I can help you fulfill your real estate goals, please give me a call or send me an email anytime.

"Paul is an extremely focused individual who has a deep drive to help his clients succeed. He is very professional, friendly and a great listener with a wealth of knowledgeable on all things real-estate and available for advice at a moment’s notice. I was at ease and felt very comfortable having Paul as my Realtor to do the heavy lifting of selling my condo while I took the back seat. His calm demeanour with a razor focus attitude on getting the best deal while protecting you from risks & liabilities makes him one of the most talented negotiators I have ever known. He fights to get you the best deal even to the last minute, and in my case that made the difference between having enough money for a just a simple wedding to be able to afford comfortably an extravagant wedding - thanks to Paul`s hard work. No wonder, he won numerous awards for excellence and why he is one of the best Toronto Realtors.
Paul goes above and beyond the duties of a traditional realtor; he was even willing to put on track pants and roll up his sleeves to help me move the furniture and clean the place so we can stage the property. He didn`t stop there, while I was away during the closing day, he personally went and inspected the place and dealt with the tenant to make sure the condo was in a really good condition for the buyer to take-over.
I am extremely happy that I sold my condo through Paul Sarradet at Harvey Kalles Real Estate. Frankly speaking, I did not think it was possible to get the price he got me at the time, due to the real-estate market conditions. I trust him completely, and strongly recommend him to anybody looking to have a good night’s sleep, during what could be a very stressful period. I look forward to buying my next condo with Paul`s help."
