Preparing Your Yard for Spring

 

Thankfully, winter is almost over, so it's time to set your sights on spring and all the prep you need to do in your yard and gardens to make them inviting for those upcoming backyard barbecues.

There's a tiny problem, though: the lawn you see out your window looks anything but that lush, healthy and weed-free one you have in our mind. What to do? Here's a list of things you can do to help bring your yard back to life.

Roll up your sleeves and grab a rake, here's what needs to be done...

RAHB REALTORS® Release March Statistics

April 1, 2019 | Press Releases

Hamilton, ON (April 1, 2019) – The REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) reported 1,032 sales of residential properties located within the RAHB market area were processed through the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) System in March, 2019. This is a 1.2 per cent drop from March last year; however, a 40 per cent increase over February 2019 and a 74 per cent increase over January 2019. The average price was up from March 2018 by 4.9 per cent to $575,099.

“The increase in the number of sales from January and February shows that we are full steam ahead and anticipate a healthy spring market,” says RAHB CEO George O’Neill. “We experienced a two per cent increase in the number of listings over last year, which means more overall choice for buyers.”

 

 

 

The number of sales for single family properties within the entire RAHB market fell by 2.7 per cent compared to the same month last year, and the average sale price increased by 5.6 per cent. Townhouse sales activity across the entire RAHB market area increased from March 2018 by 8.6 per cent, while the average townhouse sale price rose by 1.2 per cent. Apartment-style property sales were exactly the same as in March 2018, and the average price increased by 3.5 per cent to $376,391.

 

 

 

“Our market area includes Hamilton, Burlington, Haldimand and Niagara North, and within these areas are smaller communities that each have their own distinct characteristics,” add O’Neill. “The trend over the past several months has been that buyers are choosing more affordable properties and more affordable communities. We expect this to continue throughout the spring market.”

 

 

 

Specific neighbourhoods within the overall RAHB market area see results that often differ from the average of the entire RAHB market area. Because neighbourhoods vary, determining the right price and conditions when buying or selling a property can be challenging. Local RAHB REALTORS® have the experience, knowledge and tools to help buyers and sellers make those big decisions.

*Average sale price can be useful in establishing long-term trends, but should not be used as an indicator that specific properties have increased or decreased in value. Talk to your local REALTOR®.
