It is finally here! The warmth of the sun has begun to melt away the memories of the cold winter months, only to be replaced by longer days, the scent of backyard BBQ’s, and the sound of children playing in the streets. Whether you’re soaking in the weather on a leisurely walk around your neighbourhood, or are taking a casual evening drive around the block, you will notice more and more of the iconic red, white and blue signs popping up, a good indication that the spring market has arrived. Luckily, the 2016 RE/MAX Spring Market Trends Report has also arrived to provide more insight into what you can expect to see this spring!
