May Newsletter ~ The PEDLAR Team Update

We Are Still All In This Together

The PEDLAR Team wants to send health and safety to your family during these peculiar times. A round of applause goes out to the front line workers in the health care system! Another round of applause goes out to those who make it possible for our grocery store shelves to be stocked. From the truck driver to the person working the cash register.

Our office continues to remain closed to the public but we are still very much open for business via phone calls and emails. Thankfully we had many virtual practices in use before the current situation. We can do virtual showings, virtual signatures and virtual appraisals so feel free to give us a call for all your real estate needs. We always say, we are never far from our phones!

We live in an amazing community and as a whole we will get through this together! Stay safe and stay healthy!

Housing Prices In Canada
Immune To COVID-19

The experts are not in total agreement but you have both sides of the housing market predictions in this article. Some experts at TD and other reputable companies projecting a surge in home sales once COVID health concerns grow smaller. Other experts suggesting forced sales and others will have a negative impact on sale prices.

Looking at past financial hardships and their impact on our local market we can create an idea for future predictions for our particular area. 2008 recession saw a levelling of our home prices and we saw slower growth in sale prices for a year or so. This is what we expect to happen once COVID restrictions are lifted. There will be a period before both buyers and sellers are comfortable in the process again and during that period we expect to see a levelling off of prices.

As many may think this is a buyers market amongst the COVID restrictions. The other side of that coin is that many sellers are not putting their homes on the market which creates a smaller pool of homes to buy for the smaller pool of buyers. We forecast a strong housing market once the confidence is back in the economy.

Toronto Zoo Goes Online

With schools closed and most families stuck at home, why not take a virtual trip to the Toronto Zoo? Although the zoo is closed to visitors due to COVID-19, staff are still working hard to make sure all the animals stay happy and healthy. Every day at 1 p.m. they'll bring the zoo to you through Facebook live sessions with staff, keepers and– of course, the animals.
If you’re looking for educational content for younger animal-lovers, the zoo has partnered with Exploring By The Seat Of Your Pants to host live streams every Tuesday and Thursday at 11 am. It’s a virtual learning program that includes additional resources so kids and families can extend their learning beyond the stream.
