https://freehomestaging.ca/assets/uploads/blog/20200810134931_039_ID772531..jpgThe impact of COVID-19 is still influencing the way we complete real estate transactions, but it is no longer causing a negative impact when it comes to the vibrancy of the current market. 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?

For many people, the thought of living away from a city with more space to enjoy can be quite appealing. However, if you’re thinking of buying a home in a rural area, there are plenty of things you need to consider first.


Rural real estate transactions include many factors you may not typically think about. Things like quality of roads or access to your property, productivity of the soil, utility access such as water and electricity as well as more modern considerations such as the reliability of high speed internet.

As an Oakville realtor, we’ve shared our thoughts on why home staging is so important, how it works and how clients can benefit by being able to sell their home quickly and for a higher price. Most people have heard of home staging and understand that it helps present their home in the best light possible by removing clutter, placing furniture in a way that maximizes the space and helps the space look as inviting as possible for prospective buyers.


With that in mind, people who are interested in listing their home are often delighted to hear a realtor mention that they will support them with home staging. However, as with any type of service, be sure to ask the right questions so that you clearly understand what will be provided and avoid confusion.
