Toronto fall real estate market is here and it is as strong as ever.  Great listings are out and multiple buyers looking at the same places.  Multiple buyer = multiple offers….  You are out viewing homes with your agent and you keep on bumping into the same couple in every house you go.  Guess what?  That’s your competition!  Don’t give them the “mati” (Greek peeps know what I’m talking about), just prepare yourself for the competition.
