Putting the SPRING in our Step!
The opening months of 2019 have seen weather play a dramatic role in the buying and selling patterns of real estate consumers, making it difficult to truly ascertain what the temperature of the market is in broad, definable terms. What we can tell you is that the entry level market is still responsible for stimulating sales, and it’s where we are seeing the greatest activity. Multiple offers are occurring in this category, as a result of a shortage of inventory under the $500,000 threshold. However, in the upper price ranges, inventory is experiencing a quite different story, with longer market times, and position and strategy playing key roles in determining a successful sale. The condition, presentation and proper launch of a home to market has never been so imperative.
We understand these subtle nuances because of the coveted position The Geoff Appleton Team holds as the trusted source on residential trends in the Durham Region. ...

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue,
I’ve Prepared Valuable Insights for You!
Welcome to the February instalment of Home’Ward Bound! This month, all of our 2018 stats are in so we would like to dedicate the majority of this month’s offerings to Market Intelligence, so that you are informed and educated on the historical data and can therefore see the trends of the new market unfolding for 2019.
What are we anticipating for 2019? There are many factors at play right now, regionally, provincially and nationally and many voices that are indicating a challenging real estate marketplace ahead. However, we have seen challenging conditions before and succeeded – even thrived – in spite of it, netting great terms, conditions and value for our clients. And thus far, conditions have been balanced and fair, with all true indicators still showing us securely in the seat of a seller’s market.
It is ever our wish ...

The Season of Magic
The month of December is filled with our favourite things – the sights, smells, tastes and sounds of Christmas! We’ve included a host of events and things to do this holiday season, and our hope is that you will build some unique traditions of your own this year and make some fabulous memories while doing so. The Canadian fruits and vegetables for the month of December are squash, turnip, mandarins and tangerines, but we believe homemade shortbread and hot cocoa may trump that list! ‘Tis the season!
Surely there is no other time of year when the human heart is more open, grateful, generous and humbled by the interaction of others, nor is there a better time to acknowledge that impact that others have had on us. So with that, we simply say, Thank you.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve. It is our life’s purpose and sole ambition.
Thank you for gifting us with your trust. It is the greatest endorsemen ...
