We anticipated April's numbers would be less favorable than those of March. Still, on the ground we see Sellers & Buyers finding ways to transact successfully, despite uncertainty. The good news is this situation is not systemic to the real estate or mortgage industry. If we’re not in a recession yet, we’re about to be in one. This time, however, most experts feel that housing will be the sector that leads the economic recovery.
BEWARE the articles in the MEDIA like the one we saw today whose headline reads, "BC Home Sales to plummet by up to 40% this month". What's the number you're going to remember here ? 40%, right ? But it's not until you read further in that it says, "compared to the same month last year". Spring is typically our busiest time for sales, and it is no surprise that this year is going to be different than last year!
