Market recap from Colleen Koehler, President of KWAR:
“In May we saw the strong appetite for homes in the Kitchener-Waterloo area is still very much alive…But as the virus continued to circulate in the community many would-be sellers were reluctant to put their homes on the market. For the homebuyers who cannot wait out the pandemic, they are not finding any fire sales as homes are not only maintaining their value, but also increasing.”
