Hi, my name is Steven Burrows. I am a sales representative with Coldwell Banker Home & Family Realty in Oakville.
The Oakville, Milton and District real estate board released figures recently that show the number of properties coming onto the market continues to rise and that the trend toward a balanced market continues, as we have been saying for several months, the real estate market has become a much more balanced arena for both buyers and sellers.
Changes to the market may mean that sellers should consider longer lead times to market a property and that an expectation of a higher price than your neighbour may not materialize the way it might have a year ago. With such a wide range of homes to choose from buyers would be wise to engage the services of a realtor at an earlier stage in the process to ensure that the don’t get bogged down in their search.
I would encourage both buyers and sellers, to make use of the unique knowledge a local realtor has about the neighbourhoods of Oakville, their amenities and the value of the homes in those neighbourhoods. As the market changes, the knowledge a realtor has, regarding those subtle changes can make a huge difference in the experience you have in a Real Estate transaction. Realtors are required to take ongoing training as part of licensing requirements, continue to improve their skills and update their knowledge of the market regularly.
Some Unique Facts about Oakville’s Waterfront:
Since 1987, we’ve been recording and tracking the activities on the waterfront here in Oakville, as well as Burlington. There are some remarkable facts that make this waterfront unique. Burlington has 178 properties on the lake with only 5 non-riparian properties.
Oakville’s waterfront starts at Burloak Drive at the Burlington / Oakville border in the West and stretches to Winston Churchill in the East to Mississauga. Oakville has 278 waterfront properties in total. 163 with riparian and 115 with non-riparian rights. Only 12 properties are greater than 3 acres and only 32 properties are greater than 1 acre. The low levels of availability keep prices rising due to the increasing interest and desire to live on the lake.
The demand for lakefront has intensified even more over the last couple of years as more homeowners have taken to design their dream homes & estates that reflect their tastes and lifestyle and yet are also investing in the realization that they are not alone and as more money is invested, it continues to keep the values high and secure.
Nowhere in Canada has the investment in land and new homes been matched. No wonder the decision to invest in our lakefront properties is continuing to grow, as these unique facts and the realization that Oakville is the Best little town in Canada, where our waterfront has a unique blend of Public Parks, Marinas, Shopping and private residences.
