Specific neighbourhoods within the RAHB area see results that often differ from the average of the entire RAHB market area. Because neighbourhoods vary, determining the right price and conditions when buying or selling a property can be challenging. Local REALTORS® have the experience, knowledge and tools to help you make those decisions.
Average sale price can help establish long-term trends but doesn’t necessarily mean that a specific property’s value has changed. Talk to your local REALTOR®.
