Olympic Fever

Posted by Joan McGuigan

McGuigan Pepin is getting into the Olympic spirit! We recently added an Olympic-themed display to the window of our satellite office on Ste-Catherine Ouest.

In addition to the Olympic flag seen here, we also have giant Olympic rings hanging in the window (above our dollhouse).

Real estate market surging
Early signs indicate that Canada’s hot real estate market surged again in January. Among the cities to report data, sales rose an average of more than 60 per cent, and prices more than 14 per cent, from a year earlier in Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa, BMO Nesbitt Burns said. In Toronto, sales jumped 87 per cent and prices 19 per cent.
