Worked with Randy to both sell and purchase property. Randy was always very patient, accommodating and went the extra mile to ensure satisfaction. He is very experienced, honest and was both willing to listen and to provide advice. If/when I need to buy/sell property again, I will definitely call Randy first.

2022 Market Update provided by Your Mississauga Real Estate Agent
COVID-19 and Real Estate
2021 ended up being another tumultuous year. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced governments around the world to enforce general lockdowns, scores of businesses were closed, people were obliged to stay at home, and working remotely became the new norm. Real estate in the Greater Toronto Area defied all expectations, remaining extremely robust. Sales activity rose an incredible 28% compared to 2020, and prices rose by 17.8%. Absolutely incredible when you consider that we are in a time of economic uncertainty! But what should we expect for 2022?
Our federal, provincial, and municipal governments are doing their best to limit the spread of the coronavirus, but the effect on our local economy has been profound. The business of real estate has had many restrictions placed on it, such as the elimination of public open houses throughout much of 2021, and the protocols that we realtors follow have seen many changes. The rise of offers based on virtual tours, and strict requirements for in-person showings, are just two examples of this.
We must not lose sight of the three fundamentals that have driven our local real estate market in the decades-long boom that we have been enjoying:
1.) ultra-low interest rates
2.) excellent economic performance of the GTA economy, which has been a powerhouse for creating high paying jobs
3.) continuing massive immigration into the region
Will these three fundamentals remain in place in 2022?
While interest rates worldwide will remain very low, there are strong indications that we will see a rise during the coming year. We are seeing a serious uptick in inflation for consumer goods such as food, clothing, and gas, and governments around the world are reacting by raising interest rates. Here in Canada, economists are predicting several small, incremental increases throughout 2022, with the total cumulative increase reaching about 1%. That may dampen things a little, but should not kill the market by any means.
Our local economy is a complex story. While certain sectors have been hammered – the travel industry, restaurants, entertainment venues, and so on, many other sectors have been booming. There are help wanted signs everywhere, for both commercial and industrial jobs. As I write this in early January, there is the definite chance of a provincial lockdown in the coming days, to combat the Omicron variant. But hopefully this will be only a temporary measure.
As for immigration, the current federal government has indicated that the doors to Canada will remain open, with the targeted goal of allowing 410,000 new immigrants to enter Canada during 2022. We know that, historically, at least half of these new residents will settle in the GTA, creating further demand for housing in our local real estate market. We are experiencing a massive shortage of housing supply that is not meeting the demand.
It’s looking like 2022 will be an extension of 2021, more than anything else. While COVID-19 has wreaked havoc in the world, both in a medical sense, and also as an economic disruption, we seem to have muddled through so far.
The real estate market should continue its solid trajectory this year, barring any unforeseen calamity. The hope is that one day soon we will be rid of the pandemic, and then you will see the world economy start to fire on all cylinders. Let’s hope that is the case.
2021 brought massive challenges to the real estate market, but demand remained strong, and prices skyrocketed. There is always some risk investing in any asset class, but we believe there is a very strong case for real estate being a terrific investment going forward. We will continue to monitor the Toronto and Mississauga real estate markets on a daily basis, and will keep you posted on developments as they happen.
How to Win Multiple Offers – Bidding Wars
Wondering how to purchase property in Toronto? Multiple Offers and Bidding Wars have become a fact of life when buying a resale home or condo in the Greater Toronto Real Estate market, and have indeed become commonplace in many of Canada’s major cities. Stories of homes selling for $50,000, $70,000, and even $100,000 over the asking price are no longer found just in downtown Toronto and Vancouver, with bidding wars happening also in suburban areas such as Mississauga, Oakville, and Richmond Hill. Are you wondering, what is a “Bully” Offer? If you are a Buyer, how can you increase your chances of winning when forced to bid against others? If you are a seller, what are the bidding war rules? This article is based on my real-world experience as a real estate agent in buying and selling many homes in the Greater Toronto Area, and although the terms and procedures reflect the Canadian real estate system, the house bidding strategy we teach can apply anywhere where there are multiple offers and real estate bidding wars.

24 EXPERT STAGING TIPS
Agents and brokers agree that the first step in preparing for the sale of your home is to prepare it so that it shows at its very best. The real estate industry has proven in many studies that professionally staged homes sell faster, and sometimes for more money, than those homes which have not been prepared for sale…Here are 24 Professional Home Staging Tips that you can do yourself, for little or no money. These techniques can help you to increase your home’s likelihood of selling, how quickly it sells, and the dollar amount that you get.
1.) FIX SMALL NEEDED REPAIRS
Any small deficiencies can damage the attractiveness of your home to the potential buyer. A leaking bathroom faucet, a doorbell that doesn’t work, or peeling paint in the kitchen may seem like minor problems, but these minor problems can cause the buyer to think that there may be bigger problems that are hidden. That is why these small issues should be either fixed, covered over, or replaced. Any signs of owner neglect must be done away with. These items are easy to overlook, so make sure you inspect your home thoroughly with an impartial eye. The best thing about these small repairs is that they are relatively inexpensive, and often you can do them yourself in very little time. Read more on how to stage your home for sale
