Going into 2014, sellers are reviewing their expectations as the real estate market tips towards a buyers’ market with more units selling below valuation price. According to SRX Property Index, prices of non-landed private residential units continue to soften on a month-by-month basis. Price levels are hovering around 4 percent, down from the price peak in February, and volume is down 62 percent. Investors, however, see the property market improving over the next 12 months. Rentals remain soft and again landlords are readjusting their prices to better reflect the market sentiment.
Wishing you all happy home hunting in 2014!
