Dominic Cole, President of the Peterborough and Kawarthas Association of REALTORS® states, “We have been experiencing some incredible levels of sales this year and June is no exception. According to our records, it was the best June sales of all time with 389 total sales! This is mostly attributed to low interest and mortgage rates, easy access to and from the GTA, the expansion of Peterborough’s Airport, the affordability of properties, and quite simply, the beauty of being in Peterborough and the Kawarthas, with all its lakes and recreation, arts and cultural activities.
As of July 1st, 2015, electronic signatures may be used by REALTORS® and consumers on real estate transactions for Agreements of Purchase and Sale. The change comes after a long lobbying campaign by the Ontario Real Estate Association and its members that urged the provincial government to amend the Electronic Commerce Act 2000 (ECA) to remove an exclusion of the Agreements of Purchase and Sale.
On Wednesday July 8th, the Ontario REALTORS Care® Foundation’s 10th Annual Motorcycle Ride for Charity 2015 passed through Peterborough and stopped for lunch at the Peterborough Lions Community Centre, as riders headed from Toronto to Ottawa on their sponsored ride. PKAR traditionally has a number of members who take part in and raise funds to give back to the community. We are also hosting our 13th Annual REALTORS® Charity Golf Tournament at the Quarry Golf Club on Wednesday, September 16th, 2015.” Please contact your local REALTOR® to find out more.
