Happy Random Acts of Kindness Day! Market Update – 2/17/2022

What’s happening this week in the real estate market? Rising mortgage rates are expected to affect the primary homeowner’s market but the investment market is still hotter than ever. With 70% of primary home owners already locked in closer to 3%, they are not going to be motivated to make a move. Investors on the other hand are continuing to buy as the rental market is keeping up with the sales market so investment properties are still turning a profit. First time home buyers are still being encouraged to get into the market now before interest rates get any higher. Some good news in the new construction market is that the commerce department is expected to make significant cuts in taxes on Canadian lumber in order to lower costs of building new homes. Also February is historically the month when lumber prices peak, so we should see construction costs lowering into the Spring.
We’ve had 2 new listings this week; check them out here. There have been 16 condo sales and 12 home sales so far this year with a median sales price of $600,000 and $1,537,000 respectively.
