The Canadian housing market is thriving, and the Oakville real estate market is no exception! Spring 2012 is going to be a fantastic time to sell a house, and if you’ve been putting off selling your home, apartment or town home now’s the time to act. January and February of this year have outpaced the last three years and many cities are reporting 10%+ sales increases. Oakville homes are staying on the market for shorter periods of time and they’re selling at or above list price.

Why You Need the Goodale Miller Team on Your Side

Even with the market in full swing for spring, you’re going to need a realtor to help you navigate the tricky currents of the housing market. Right now it’s a “seller’s market”, which means that the ball is in the seller’s court. If you’re trying to buy a home, you need a realtor to negotiate the price of the home to get a good deal. If you’re selling your home, you need someone who knows the local market. How much should you price your home at? What are your neighbours pricing their Oakville homes for sale at? These are the hard questions that you just can’t answer yourself, and that’s why we're here to help.

Small Gains, Fast Sales

You have to have a realistic outlook about Oakville real estate; you won’t make a huge gain on selling your home, but you will most likely get the list price and your home won’t sit on the market, vacant, eating up money for months on end. So a quick sale and a decent profit are achievable. The market is extremely healthy right now for buyers as well.

When you’re buying a home, you will have more competition for real estate. With a knowledgeable realtor you’ll be able to get a handle on the market and get a good deal. Just because the market is heating up doesn’t mean you’re going to have to pay above market price, but it does mean that there are many different homes to choose from.

Is it the Right Time to Buy or Sell?

Everyone is different, so it may not be the right time to buy for you. Depending on your budget, where you want to live in Oakville and what kind of home you want to buy it is the right time.  

There are a few exceptions though in Vancouver, Kitchener-Waterloo and Winnipeg. It’s a great time to invest in Oakville real estate, and if you need to liquidate assets this will be the best time in years to get the most for your money.
