South Pickering Is One Market That Is Coasting Into Spring

The national press is presenting a cautiously pessimistic attitude to the real estate market.  The buyers in South Pickering must be listening. 

In spite of there being some great value in the area, only 22% of the 81 active listings sold.  In April of 2007, 26 homes in Pickering, south of the 401.  This April saw 18.

The number of days that a home is staying on the market is 38 compared to 34 last year.  In April, the homes that were selling sold faster than in March.

Unlike the national press, I like to be cautiously optimistic.  With gas prices rising, Toronto home affordability questionable, South Pickering offers a value-priced, GO-train-serviced area that buyers should take a close look at.

Where else can you get a detached home a 5 minute walk to the waterfront trail, for less than $300,000.  I can show you some great ones.
