My comments:
If you have been following social media, the Real Estate market has slowed down a little compared to 2-3 months ago. With the pandemic it’s hard to predict what will happen the rest of the year but I don’t see a big correction to happen either. The properties that check all the boxes still receive multiple offers. Having said that, I do notice the number of offers decreasing in both detached and attached properties. There are more inventories and buyers have more chances to select what they like. For sellers, it’s still a good time to sell, price is quite decent compared to the past couple years.

Stay safe!
