Good news for sellers who have struggled in 2022: there has been an increase in buyer activity in many areas of Southern Ontario, which started picking up just one month ago. Although prices had corrected from previous years, many areas are now experiencing steady price increases.

However, there were fewer new listings available in April. While this may present an opportunity for discouraged sellers, it's important not to cut corners when marketing your home. To get the most value for your home, it's crucial to have it marketed with excellence. This involves professional home staging, exceptional photos and videos, and a marketing and pricing strategy implemented by a local expert with a proven track record of success.
