Market recap from the President of KWAR:

“Last month the market took a breath and calmed a bit, but there is still very strong demand throughout our region…This started prior to the new mortgage stress test that came into effect on June 1. While these changes will impact the affordability for some, I do not expect it to be very impactful due to the sheer number of buyers in our market.”
