36 Emerald Crescent - SOLD

Listed last week and SOLD within a week. Working with the owners of 36 Emerald Crescent was an extraordinary experience for the Carron-Skogland Team. If you are considering putting your property on the MLS in the GTA, please give us a call. Our experience with helping people be successful with their real estate experience is valuable.

MAY'24 Real Estate Stats

At this time last year, property prices and sales peaked. The effects of our central bank’s decision to raise interest rates again had not yet shown up in average price or the number of sales, but that was about to happen. The real estate market then started to slow as the cost of borrowing started to climb again. 

The trends shifted in a new direction at the start of 2024.  We started to hear media bites and  ‘in the know’ pontifications that we could anticipate the lowering of interest rates.  Buyers and Sellers came out of the closet.  They wanted to be ahead of the curve.

Last month’s (May) sales information shows that home buyers are still waiting for relief from the higher cost of borrowing. The market is now just behind last year’s peak, and the number of properties available for sale has continued to grow.  

The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board Chief Market Analyst, Jason Mercer, summarized the information as follows: “While interest rates remained high in May, home buyers did continue to benefit from slightly lower selling prices compared to last year. We have seen selling prices adjust to mitigate the impact of higher mortgage rates. Affordability is expected to improve further as borrowing costs trend lower. However, as demand picks up, we will likely see renewed upward pressure on home prices as competition between buyers increases.”

What Our Clients Say

Client experiences

"Absolutely fantastic experience with Jackie and Fred! Thanks to their excellent work, we went from homeless to homeowners in just under two months. From the moment we contacted Jackie and Fred, they have been expert guides through this whole process. We had particular needs for our home and a very short timeline to find, view, and purchase our new home. Jackie and Fred listened to our needs, happily answered our many questions, and helped us view a variety of excellent options to consider for purchase. Looking for a house in the Toronto market is stressful, but Jackie and Fred made it feel like a breeze! 10 out of 5 stars!" 

With much appreciation, Miranda & Chris - Toronto

“This is a true FULL SERVICE Real Estate TEAM! They are not afraid to have tough conversations with you to ensure your best interests as a client are being served. Jackie and Fred stick with you through the process from beginning to end, from the interviewing agents phase all the way to the acknowledgments and gratitude after the sale. Their efforts produced a record sale for the street! We absolutely respect them and appreciate everything they did for us, large and small. If you are considering selling your property, I would highly recommend you choose them as your real estate team.”

Janit & Cameron - Toronto

“I highly recommend the Carron-Skogland Team from Keller Williams Real Estate. We really benefited from the full service we received from their team. They had nerves of steel during the most uncertain time at the height of the shutdown and was a great source of strength during the most difficult market ever! When you sign on with the Jackie and Fred team you get two for one experience. Both of them are professional and polite and have well vetted connections in staging, cleaning, renovation, real estate law and more, that removed a burden us. My husband and I cannot recommend them highly enough!”

Jo-Ann Brick Stockley - Brampton

“Jackie & Fred are a great team and having both their support allows for immediate answers and assistance at all times, as well as both their input and advice when it comes to major decisions. We really appreciate their professionalism, honest advice, constant transparent communication, excellent marketing strategy and not to omit the dedication to really cater to our needs on a daily basis. The immaculate staging, pictures, video and website of our original home enabled it to sell very quickly (in less than 7 days!). Thank you again for everything!”

Luciana and Remus - Toronto

''Your expertise, resources, confidence, willingness to do whatever we needed. You and Fred made our very difficult transition much smoother than could be expected. Your expertise, resources, confidence, willingness to do whatever we needed, and emotional support, were truly invaluable. In fact, I truly wish when it is time for Bob and I to sell, (in Fenelon Falls) that you and Fred could handle it for us!”

Marg & Bob, children of Bill & Ruth, Etobicoke
