Change is just about the only thing you can really count on, and the real estate market is no different. As we battle inflation and higher interest rates, the real estate market in Halton and across the GTA has started to cool off. 


Many economists have suggested we are entering a buyer’s market, which means that buyers are in a more advantageous position because the number of listings are greater than the number of buyers. Homes tend to sit on the market longer and there can be a softening of selling prices.

With award winning marketing tools and expert local knowledge, people wanting to sell their homes can still get good results, as long as they choose the right agent, like Sue Heddle!
