What a lot don’t realize though is that St. John’s is booming in today’s real estate market. The number of MLS listings and property values for residential and commercial listings are growing steadily but are not inflated, making this an ideal time to buy or sell.

Is your family growing, and you're looking for a large room in a family neighbourhood? Need to be close to schools and shopping areas? Or perhaps you're looking to settle into a small home in a quiet, more suburban or rural setting. Want a cul de sac? Maybe a home with a basement apartment? Whatever your real estate needs, we're here to give you professional input and help you find the best value, whether buying or selling.

St. John's is a Real Estate Powerhouse!

The City boasts many attractions such as art galleries, museums, shopping centers and beautiful scenery, several of which are listed on the bottom of this page. But these attractions are only a small part of the community's appeal. Everyone who lives here knows the people are great, the schools are wonderful and the quality of life is second to none. St John’s gives you a feeling of “home.”

If you're considering buying a home here, one very important point to consider is the value that the area offers. Over the past few years real estate values have declined through many parts of the world, but here in St John’s we have a thriving market.

Just recently, 2009 reports indicate that the real estate market here has increased by 24% since the same time period in 2008.

Healthy growth is also seen in many nearby communities in Newfoundland and Labrador, like TorbayMount Pearl, and Paradise. Mount Pearl offers city living right next to St. John's, while the others offer a more rural setting. Compared to many other areas of the world, these are all significant real estate investment opportunities, whether you are purchasing a property or planning a new home construction.
