The PEDLAR Team Update ~ December Newsletter

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

December can be a very busy month so make sure to take a deep breath and enjoy the friends and family around you. We hope everybody has a great time between get togethers and holiday functions.

Don't forget to consider those less fortunate and give back to your local food bank. Many organizations also collect wrapped gifts for those kids less fortunate as well. Be an active part of your community and give back.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from the Pedlar family!

Children's Miracle Network Donation

With every transaction we donate a proportion to the Children's Miracle Network. These donations we make go directly to the Children's Health Foundation at London Hospital where 90% of the machines are purchased through donations! We want to say a huge thank you to our clients for another great year!

RE/MAX National Outlook For 2020

RE/MAX is calling for a leveling out of the highs and lows that characterized the Canadian housing market in 2019, particularly in Vancouver and Toronto, as we move into 2020. Healthy price increases are expected next year, with an estimated 3.7 per-cent increase in the average residential sale price.
Most individual markets surveyed across Canada experienced moderate price increases year-over-year from 2018 to 2019. However, some regions in Ontario continue to experience higher-than-normal gains, including London (+10.7 per cent), Windsor (+11 per cent), Ottawa (+11.7 per cent) and Niagara (+12.9 per cent).
As more Canadians have adjusted to the mortgage stress test and older Millennials move into their peak earning years, it is anticipated that they will drive the market in 2020, particularly single Millennials and young couples. A recent Leger survey conducted by RE/MAX found that more than half (51 per cent) of Canadians are considering buying a property in the next five years, especially those under the age of 45.

Subdivision Planned For
Just North Of Grand Bend

South Huron Council learned recently of a major subdivision consisting of more than 300 homes planned for the east side of Highway 21 which is currently home to nine holes of the Oakwood golf course just north of Grand Bend
Dubbed the Oakwood Meadows Subdivision, the proposed residential project is expected to move forward starting in 2021 over several years of phasing.
Don de Jong of developers Tridon Group appeared at South Huron council’s Nov. 4 meeting to inform council of preliminary plans for the 130 acre property. Things are still in the early stages and official plan and zoning bylaw amendment applications will still have to come to council for approval.
