“It is well known that sales in the Spring of 2017 were exceptionally high” I would call the number of sales in the Spring of 2017 as an anomaly, states OMDREB President Rick Kedzior. We are seeing decreases across the GTA with OMDREB being on the lower end of the scale. The government’s attempts to cool the market are working. Once we get through the first quarter it is expected we will see more moderate changes over 2017.Kedzior states that the GTA continues to attract over 70% of new immigration to Canada with the Oakville and Milton communities leading the way as safe communities to raise a family.
