Market recap from the President of KWAR:
“Even well before the pandemic we had noted a trend of consumers migrating out of the GTA to our region. As the pandemic heated up it only fueled this fire more as the very concept of what home means was shifting. With more people working from home, some permanently, space has become a greater concern than ever before. When you combine this with all the other great attributes of our region, it is no surprise this occurred.”
