In a Sellers Market it is imperative that you know about the houses getting listed As Soon As They Hit The Market! Unless you are connected to a Real Estate Agent that has you set up on a search, you will only know about listings once they are reported to the public sites. If you wait till you see it on Realtor.ca or other sites, it's just too late.

There was an 11.4% increase from last year for the number of properties listed for sale with the number coming in at 1500 for November 2016. Average days on the market decreased from 36 to 25 for freehold, and from 34 to 26 in the condo market compared to the same month last year.
Always remember that "Average sale price is based on the total dollar volume of all properties sold through the RAHB MLS® System. Average sale price can be useful in establishing long term trends, but should not be used as an indicator that specific properties have increased or decreased in value." What that means is not every house or condo has increased in price by the same percentage. It is really important to talk to an experienced local REALTOR® to see EXACTLY what is happening in your particular neighbourhood. It is also important to find out what you can do to your house to get the highest amount possible when you are ready to sell!
