February’s Newsletter: Top 25 restaurants for Valentine’s Day – Protecting yourself from home fraud – CREA: Expect a market turnaround in 2023
February 8, 2023
We have been having quite a rollercoaster of a winter with temperatures bouncing around from 0 to -30 to +9, as per my car thermometer! Based on Mr Groundhog, winter doesn’t seem like it is going to end any time soon.
We have a busy month ahead in Toronto as the city recognizes Black History Month (check out my events blog for more on that) and for those that choose to buy into the commercialization of Valentine’s Day, there’s something below for you too! Also below is a link to a blog post I wrote regarding the increasing number of title theft cases in the city and ways in which you can try to protect yourself if you’re a homeowner.
What am I looking forward to, you ask? One more big blast of snow up in cottage country so that I can use my new snowblower! Yes, I’m definitely a “Boys and their toys…” kinda guy.
Lastly, there’s been a lot of speculation about what could happen in the market over the next few months. As you’ll see below, CREA is predicting a bit of a turnaround in the coming months with a full return to normal in 2024. I think it depends partly on what happens with interest rates. If inflation can be curbed and rates go down, we’ll see higher activity in home sales.
