Those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer...

Patios, Bluesfest, bbqs, Sandbanks and summer’s heat... judging from the way in which condo sales have slowed to a trickle this past month, it would seem I'm not the only one who has been taking time out to enjoy those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.

That said, the few buyers I've been working with have picked up some real gems at very good prices over the past month, one of the advantages of being in the market while everyone else is up at the cottage. Without a doubt "value for money" remains top of mind for many buyers, and sellers have been forced to acknowledge this as they reduce their prices accordingly.
