Advice to Home Buyers in Victoria

What's President Crozier's advice to buyers shopping for their perfect home? "It's critical to work closely with your REALTOR® to stay on top of the market. With home sales almost at the pace of new listings, the market is moving quickly and some homes in high demand areas like the Victoria Core are selling in days. Working with your Realtor on a plan of what you require over the course of the transaction can remove stress and risk from the process."
