What Lies Ahead For 2019 

Overall the Yorkville condo market will continue to see modest gains in year over year appreciation.  However suites over 1500 square feet will appreciate at a higher rate. There is less supply of larger units available for sale and also greater demand for these larger suites from the Baby Boomer age group wanting to move from their house to a condo.
