“Once again in July we saw an increase in inventory and a decrease in the number of homes sold in Niagara, compared to July of 2016,” said Randy Mulder, President of the Niagara Association of REALTORS®. “We are experiencing a market shift that has moved strongly from a “Seller’s Market”, to a balanced market.
Home buyers now have greater selection, and a less frenzied marketplace throughout the Niagara Region. Well priced, well presented homes are still very popular. The advice of a REALTOR® is crucial to both buyers and sellers, ensuring a smooth transaction.”
