December 2023 Market Report For Our Communities

As we look forward into 2024, we look back into December to see how the Market ended the year in our communities. Across the region average prices were marginally down however in our local communities we saw large increases.

There was a large 23% decrease in Sales Prices throughout Tiny Township, however with only 9 Sales recorded, it’s easy for the numbers to get skewed. However, throughout Midland, Penetang and Tay Township we saw increases, most notably in Midland with a 22.5% increase. There are lots of opportunities for buyers heading into the new year with an 23% increase in active listings across the region. Sellers are still in a strong position to seeing price increases along with motivated winter buyers.

Revitalize Your Living Space: New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

As we usher in the new year, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the past and set goals for the future. While personal resolutions often take centre stage, why not extend the spirit of renewal to your living space?

Your home is a reflection of your lifestyle, and making resolutions for it can enhance your overall well-being. In this blog post, we’ll explore some thoughtful New Year’s resolutions to transform your home into a haven of comfort, style, and functionality.


Declutter and Organize:

Start the year with a clean slate by decluttering and organizing your living spaces. Consider adopting the KonMari method or simply dedicate a weekend to sorting through your belongings. Donate or discard items you no longer need and find stylish storage solutions to keep your home clutter-free.


Create a Relaxation Zone:

Designate a specific area in your home as a relaxation zone. Whether it’s a cozy reading nook, a meditation corner, or a comfortable spot for your morning coffee, having a dedicated space for relaxation can positively impact your mental well-being.


Embrace Greenery:

Introduce more plants into your home to bring a touch of nature indoors. Not only do plants improve air quality, but they also add a vibrant and fresh ambiance to any room. Consider low-maintenance options if you’re not a natural green thumb.


Upgrade Home Security:

Prioritize the safety of your household by upgrading your home security system. Invest in smart locks, cameras, and alarms to enhance your peace of mind. It’s a resolution that ensures both safety and comfort for your loved ones.


Energy-Efficient Upgrades:

Contribute to a more sustainable future by making energy-efficient upgrades to your home. Switch to LED bulbs, install a programmable thermostat, and consider upgrading to energy-efficient appliances. These changes not only benefit the environment but also reduce your utility bills in the long run.


Establish Cleaning Routines:

Maintain a clean and organized home by establishing regular cleaning routines. Break down tasks into manageable chunks, and involve family members in keeping shared spaces tidy. A consistently clean home contributes to a healthier and more enjoyable living environment.


Tech Detox Zone:

Create a designated tech-free zone in your home where family members can unwind and connect without digital distractions. This could be the dining room, a cozy corner, or even the backyard. Encouraging face-to-face interactions fosters stronger relationships and a more mindful lifestyle.


As we step into the new year, these home resolutions are a roadmap to transforming your living space into a sanctuary of comfort, style, and positivity. By investing time and effort into these resolutions, you’ll not only enhance the aesthetics of your home but also create an environment that nurtures your well-being and supports your goals for the year ahead. Cheers to a refreshed and revitalized home in the coming year!
