The hottest topic for everyone these days is the market. Although the forecast for 2009 promises more of the same, most markets are expected to weather the storm, says RE/MAX.
Housing market performance will clearly be contingent on economic performance at a local, provincial, and national level in 2009. Issues affecting the overall economy are impacting housing markets across the country and the situation is not expected to be remedied until consumer confidence is restored. With inventory levels remaining stable, pent-up demand kicking into gear, and low interest rates stimulating home-buying activity, we are seeing a bounce back in various areas surrounding the GTA.
While the economy will dictate real estate performance this year, it’s important to remember that demand still exists in the marketplace. In the midst of stock market turmoil, sold signs continue to appear on lawns across the country. With affordable lending rates and increased selection, first-time and move-up buyers with good credit may choose to play their investment strategy safe and purchase a home. The comfort of a tangible investment like real estate goes a long way in tough times.
