A Message From Wayne Graham, Head of Real Estate

“Demand has remained strong throughout the year but we are starting to see demand plateau while supply is rising. We expect the market to cool off during Q4 as it typically does due to seasonality but do not expect home prices to fall. Now is a great time for hopeful buyers to become more aggressive with their offers as the competition is lessening.”
