"New listings and sales are understandably down compared to May 2019; however, the average sale price has held fairly steady week-over-week during COVID-19 due to a balance of buyers and sellers. The province moving safely into phase one of re-opening has improved consumer confidence, leading to an increase in activity compared to April. If progress continues and the weather cooperates, we should expect higher activity in June." - RAHB President Kathy Della-Nebbia

We expect the spring market will be strong with more competition between sellers, as many wait for the flowers to bloom to market their homes." - RAHB President Kathy Della-Nebbia
