Buyers gone or just on Vacation?
The August Market is upon us. On top of an already quiet Market, it has been feeling a little extra sleepy out there and I think that is largely due to everyone being out and about enjoying the last bit of summer. The recent interest rate increases, with the threat of more, have had an impact on our Housing Market, but late summer is also a historically quiet time in the market.
Some economists are saying that the Bank of Canada is done with interest rate increases, while others worry that we will have another increase in September. If we see inflation continue the down shift or at least hold steady, I hope that the interest rates will also stay the same. Many homeowners are struggling with the increases and even regretting taking on their current mortgages. With the cost of living already so high, having major increases in mortgage payments is a huge stress on homeowners. Hopefully the September announcement brings good news.
Sunshine Coast is still the best neighbourhood in the Lower Mainland and the best value, being 20 to 30 percent lower than comparable areas of the Lower Mainland. Why fight the traffic when you can relax aboard a scenic cruise while catching up on rest or work during the 40 minute commute.
