Who says houses need to be a certain shape? This home, named "The Shield House" after of t's curved sides, was designed by Studio H:T in Denver, Colorado. Not just a style element, the shield provides privacy from the nearby three story triplex. Surely a creative way to recognize and work with your surroundings.

Check out this Modern Homer in Sydney. Built on sloping land, this three storey home takes full advantage of the views of the skyline. This house is a great example of modern architecture, usage of windows and skylights, as well as a non traditional floor plan. It was designed by the MPR Design Group.

Market Update

may 2012

The April Real Estate market was really interesting. It was a market dominated by rising inventory levels. Sales activity and average pricing was much less predictable, and showed great variation from market to market. Typically, we would relate this rising inventory and inconsistent sales activity with a market shifting towards the favour of buyers. This year we have one primary factor that at play, and that is mortgage rates. Based on conversations with several of our contacts higher up in the banking world, mortgage pre-approval applications are flooding in with prospective buyers drawn to the low rates. As the banks typically see buyer trends 30-60 days before they become real world buyers, I would not be at all surprised to see a wave of buyers jumping into the market before Summer. It makes sense... Low rates and a rising inventory makes for a great buying opportunity if you choose your spot.

In this month's stats, we have included a comparison to show year over year change in addition to the month over month numbers we typically show. We think it adds an additional perspective that is quite valuable. Let us know what you think...
