3 Reasons Why Waiting to Buy Your Home in the Spring Could be a Huge Mistake

Most of us would prefer not to move home when it’s cold and snowy. Some buyers have told us they want to delay their move until the Spring. That decision could be a HUGE mistake.

  1.            Interest Rates Are Not Going Down

The Bank of Canada intends to reduce interest rates IF it can. Most experts agree that if interest rates are lowered it will not be by very much.
