For some months, your real estate problems were just curiosity for us. But after December's 45% sales drop on the Toronto real estate market everybody here is scared. Luckily, prices are still a calm - average price drop was small and median price remained almost unchanged. We all hope this is just a huge correction of 2006-2007 boom.
Take care and best wishes.
