Spring has finally arrived (sort of) and with it some growth in the average price of a resale home in the GTA. In March, we saw the price of homes increase by 4% versus March 2012 which means the average price of a home increased from $500, 875 to $519, 879. We also saw price growth across all market segments including single- detached homes, semi-detached homes, townhomes and condo apartments. Although we saw price growth there was a 17% decrease in sales versus March 2o12.
This month in our update we look at a case of a couple with two dogs and the importance of examining the building’s certificate of status prior to placing an offer on a unit.

We also take a look at some of your electrical questions including examining the electrical capacity of your home and what to do if some of your electrical out lets are not grounded. What are the risks and consequences?
Lastly, and as always we have the popular Pearls of Wisdom. Here is a preview: “Here’s something to think about: how come you never see a headline like ‘Psychic Wins Lottery’” – Jay Leno.
