My name is Yvonne Brockman, but friends and clients call me Yve. I am a real estate sales professional who works at Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd.. I am always so honoured when I get a referral from a past client or friend because that is what truly shows that people have confidence and trust in my ability to help them meet their real estate goals.
The Toronto Real Estate Market has exceeded everyone's expectations and prices have risen an average of 25% since last year. There are very few listings out there as many homeowners are choosing not to move, but to stay and renovate. Buyers are very frustrated because the new normal has become BIDDING WARS. I haven't seen one house on the market that doesn't start out with a lower than expected asking price. Homes are easily going for hundreds of thousands of dollars over the asking price! This is why it is so important to choose a savvy realtor who knows how to maneuver and handle very delicate and sometimes volatile situations.
Many Sellers also are in a catch 22 situation. If they Sell high, then they have to buy high also. However, many Baby boomers don't need such a big home anymore and they can bank a lot of extra cash by buying something smaller and more manageable, or renting, or moving out to a more rural setting.
