As proud Windsorites, we of course have season tickets to our local OHL team The Windsor Spitfires. We gathered with family & friends last night in the Molson Hockey House party suite to watch the Spits take on the Guelph Storm. It was also the annual Mickey Renaud tribute game, where they honour the captain who fell of an undiagnosed heart condition 9 years ago. The ceremony was emotional, with the crowd showing their support with a standing ovation and many prolonged applause.
It was very cool to have our friend Steve Bell aka "Beller". Steve is a well-known sportscaster who has been with AM800 CKLW for 37 years! It was wonderful to see his lovely wife Lori, and to hear his first-hand take on the game.

Windsor may soon turn more cosmopolitan, with the likes of a distillery district, a historical village or a Chinatown.
City council on Monday approved $250,000 for “districting — themes and identity” as part of its enhanced capital budget. Councillors also voted to provide $850,000 for a roundabout and sign for Olde Sandwich Towne, and $1 million for banners and improved lighting on Wyandotte Street East to highlight a new vision called Windsor’s World Marketplace, spanning Wards 3 and 4.
It’s all part of an effort to jazz up certain districts, similar to what is done in large cities like Toronto’s Chinatown or Little Italy.

One of the most common questions we get at this time of year is, “What’s going on in the market?” It’s not just potential buyers and sellers who are curious; homeowners always want reassurance their home’s value is going up. While the state of the real estate market depends on where you live, one thing is for sure: Overall, the real estate market is healthy in most areas.

However, real estate is local, and while statistics and predictions help us understand the overall real estate market, our local market may be different. If you’re thinking of buying or selling, or just want to know how much your home is worth, give us a call!

RE/MAX has released their 2017 Housing Market Outlook Report. Unsurprisingly, Windsor is projected to remain a hot seller's market through 2017, with a five-percent increase in the average home price rising to $237,791. With the year not ended, RE/MAX projects the average sales price for 2016 to be approx $226,468. This was a whopping 13% increase over 2015.
