Does colour really matter?

The temperatures have soared in April, but the housing market was already sizzling this March! More buyers and limited inventory have had homes moving quickly and often over list price.

Here are the averages:

  • Days on the market: 14 (compared to 35 in 2016)
  • Price of a detached home: $583, 144 (increase of 35.6 percent from this time last year)
  • Price of an apartment-style condominium: $265,524 (increase of 25.4 percent from this time last year)
  • Town home: $368,554 (increase of 29.9 percent from this time last year)
  • Semi detached home: $412,225 (increase 49.1 percent from this time last year)

    I have not run many races. 8 years ago, I did a tri-a-tri in Elmira. A few years back I ran in MCC’s Run for Relief in New Hamburg. This year am preparing to run the ENDURrace at the end of April. The difference this year is that I have been training as part of a group rather than alone. Since mid-Feb, I have been training with the Let’s start running, Elmira! group. We have met once each week to run together and encourage each other. The group training aspect is what has made this coming race my favourite. It is completely different training with a group and a lot of fun, too.

      Thanks Lynn! That is fantastic. I completely agree training with others always makes it easier and more fun.
