Purchasing a condo in Oakville can be a great option for those looking to get into the real estate market or for those looking to downsize. Condo ownership means you don’t have to worry about the upkeep that comes with a traditional semi-detached or detached home. In addition, condos also typically have a selection of shared amenities that are paid for by condo fees and can be used by residents.


If you think a condo could be the right purchase for you, Sue Heddle Homes can help. With more than a decade of experience as an Oakville realtor, she knows how to help clients narrow down their search to ensure they find exactly what they’re looking for.

What to Consider Before Buying A Condo

Not all condos are the same, of course, so it’s best to figure out what your specific needs are before you dive head first into your search. While location and design matter, many people are unware of how much condo fees can vary, so be sure to factor those into...

We know many home owners that are thinking of selling their homes but just aren’t sure if now is the right time. Well, we can say with confidence that now is absolutely the right time.

3 Reasons Why Selling Now Is The Best Decision You Can Make

While there can be many different benefits that come from selling your home, getting the best price possible is always a top priority. Now is your best chance to get the best price!


Here’s why:


1. Currently, the federal government does not tax the sale of your primary residence. However, they will have to find ways to finance the significant federal debt that’s been run up over the past five months (and counting) to pay for all the support programs announced in response to the global pandemic.


There has been much speculation that a capital gains tax on the sale of primary residences...

July was a record-breaking month for real estate sales across the GTA. Not even a nearly 17 per cent price spike in Toronto prices seemed to stop homebuyers from making offers.


Sue Heddle Homes certainly noticed the uptick in market activity and ended the month of July as the top realtor in the Century 21 Miller Real Estate Ltd. brokerage. Sales activity was very strong for the first full month of summer! With buyers continuing to compete for homes as they are being sold faster than new listings are added, we don’t see a slowdown happening any time soon.

Most of Ontario has now entered Stage 3 of the COVID-19 re-opening plan, with the final few regions likely following shortly. This next phase brings several changes, one of which is the ability to host gatherings of up to 50 people. As larger groups are now allowed, Oakville realtors prepare to host Open Houses once again.


It’s important to note that although Open Houses are now possible, they will still look different from Open House events we knew before the global pandemic. Signs displaying health precautions, hand sanitizer, and masks will be a part of any Open House for the foreseeable future and realtors will be required to manage capacity and enforce social distancing.

Top Oakville realtor Sue Heddle has been experiencing the busiest summer market of her 12 year career! The housing market has definitively picked up speed after being slowed considerably due to the COVID-19 outbreak.


While some people are actively buying and selling homes in Oakville and throughout the Halton area, others are taking this time to upgrade their space since we’ll all be spending more time at home this summer.


The warm temperatures and the hot summer sun make it easy to wish for a pool in your backyard. Even if you have the space to accommodate a pool, is it really something you’re prepared to invest in? Adding a pool to your home will certainly add to your short-term enjoyment (as long as you’re prepared to handle the added yearly costs), but will it help you sell your home further down the road?

What Buyers May Think When They See A Pool
