This year, my husband and I decided to go on an adventure: a year of buying nothing. We can buy experiences, food, books, and necessities, but nothing else. Yes, I see the irony given that I’m a sales person!!!! Sometimes being a “professional shopper” (as I like to put it) has its downside, which is that I always feel like buying something for myself, either as a reward after a long day or as a celebration after a sale.

Here are the three top points: 1. Total sales are down 11% and inventory is up 7.45% from last year, 2. Median prices are down across the board but average prices varied, with condos having the biggest adjustment and being down in both categories…

The main points are: 1. Total sales this month were up by 5% over last year, which may be in large part to the new mortgage rules coming into effect, 2. Prices across the board were down, 1.75% for houses, condos were steady, and duplexes were down 6% from 2015, 3. Inventory is still up, 8.6% over last year…

RBC has projections that show the 5 year bond will increase from the current .65% to 1.7% that 1.05% increase will equate to these numbers.
