April 2022 home sales down 41% from last year, dropped 27% since March: TRREB “With a lot of the smaller condos under 1,000 square feet, or semi-detached properties up to $1.5 million or even just under $2 million, I’m finding for sure, there’s fewer people that are bidding compared to in February,” said Sara Rowshanbin, a broker with Chestnut Park Real Estate Limited in Toronto.“So where I might have been bidding against 15 plus people, I now might be bidding against four or five people.”The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board earlier this week reported the number of April sales in the market dropped by about 41 per cent from the same month last year and 27 per cent from March.The average home price was more than $1.2 million, down from about $1.3 million the month before, but was still about 15 per cent higher than the year before, when the average price was more than $1 million.Fuelling the drop in bids are prospective buyers that Rowshanbin has noticed feeling too nervous to wade into the market in case conditions quickly change, preferring instead to wait on the sidelines until they get a better sense of how much the market is really softening and how much rate changes will affect their buying power.“They want to sort of re-evaluate how they’re going to tackle this new market with the higher interest rates, but I don’t think they’re going to sit on the sidelines for too long,” she said.Marc LeFrancois, a broker with Royal LePage Tendance in Montreal, has similar observations.He’s recently seen homes sell after receiving a single offer or a few, rather than the 20 brokers were accustomed to dealing with months ago.Last month, Montreal home.

The Queen makes surprise public appearance at Platinum Jubilee after health woes
Queen has officially made a public appearance at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.The main event, which featured incredible music performances as well as parades from the King's Regiment, was shown live on ITV on Sunday (May 15) - and even featured the likes of American actor Tom Cruise.And the Queen arrived in her classic Range Rover, escorted by a parade of horses as she slowly made her way out of the backseat aided by a walking stick.The crowd went wild as her car arrived in the parade square.According to ITV's Chris Ship, the Queen proceeded to take a small elevator up to her seat from ground level, preventing her from being forced to climb steps.He posted on social media: "She used a small lift/elevator to navigate her way from her car in the area to her seat in the stand. As a 96 year old, it’s surprising and astonishing she hasn’t had to do this before."She later sat atop a velvet-lined throne with a blanket across her knees to watch the proceedings outdoors, as the mounted guards performed to music.She wore a grey cardigan encrusted with jewels around her shoulders, over a blue floral patterned top.It comes after her health woes left the monarch unable to appear at the opening of Parliament - an event she had only missed twice before, both times due to pregnancy.Prince Charles appeared in her place to provide the opening speech.Fans were loving seeing their monarch in public again, as they took to Twitter to air their thoughts.One penned: "Why am I smiling so sheepishly.
