Taking a risk is often your first step towards success!

Taking a risk is often your first necessary step toward success.  If you don’t take some risks, you won’t get the chance to succeed.  While you are trying, you are winning.

The law of averages is on your side. The more you try, the greater your chance of succeeding.  Never get discouraged!  Every wrong attempt is another step forward. People that make no mistakes usually don’t make anything.

Make up your mind not merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand defeats.  Your mistakes are stepping stones to success and your installment payments to victory.

You can’t be a winner and be afraid to lose.

Quick Market Update:

I’ve seen a decrease in the number of showings that have been taking place as well more and more properties are not selling on their offer dates.  One stat quoted to me for downtown was close to 80% of properties with offer dates didn’t sell on the date (unconfirmed report).  This is not to say that there are ample good listings that aren’t selling and is part of the reason why more and more properties aren’t selling on their offer dates.  Every agent in the market is holding offers and it’s creating a backlog for buyers who are looking to purchase properties and in turn are getting turned off.  Also, the interest rate hikes as well as changes in CMHC rules for lending has pushed some buyers out of the market.

This will reflect as a more balanced market and will cool things down in Toronto Real Estate.  If you’re thinking about selling, it would be wise to have your property listed sooner than later.  There are more interest rate increase expected in Q3 and Q4 of 2010.  As a buyer, you should get a current pre-approval and make the bank will honor the better rate in case the rates go up.
