That's what I was asked when I received a solicitation phone call. Although I do not approve of such phone calls, it is an enticing question. Clearly house owners nearing retirement age have an unusual opportunity in this moment in time when they can finance their retirement simply by downsizing to a condo or moving closer to their relatives.

Simply downsizing? House sellers, now turned townhouse and condo buyers, realize it is not simple when they have to win bidding wars paying way above asking prices and forgoing normal due diligence such as building inspections.

Where's the tipping point? Will it be the Feds raising interest rates and the Canadian Bank Rate following upward? Or international buyers concerned about the changing political climate here? In 1981, it was interest rates that caused a 25% dip in prices that took 8+ years to recover.

So, if you are thinking of downsizing within the next 5+ years, do it now! Phone me today to discuss further.
