"With the re-opening of the province, and the increased confidence in both the economy and the health of our communities, we are seeing higher activity in both sales and new listings throughout theRAHB market area. Typically, spring is busier than summer; however,COVID-19 seems to have pushed the market back a few months. Throughout the pandemic, the average price of a residential property in our market has held steady. If Ontario's recovery fromCOVID-19 continues, we shouldn't see a decrease; however, we are cautious that any relapse or second wave could slow the activity and affect average price." - RAHB President Kathy Della-Nebbia
