Even with appointments down 13% as a result of the Easter Long Weekend, March 2021 is quite literally off the charts (see ‘Appointments 4 Years At a Glance’ below). There has been a staggering 17,740 more appointments than the same month last year. This has been the busiest month in the history of the Appointment Centre, and shows a particularly stark contrast compared to this time last year.
Based on the first three days of April, the market continues to be strong, and shows the possibility of another record breaking month on the way.

Niagara’s most popular price ranges continue to be more affordable, but inch upward with $650-700k taking the top spot.
