What’s happening with the Real Estate Market in Peterborough? How does this impact my home’s value?
Two really great questions.
As a licensed real estate professional, it’s my role to provide answers and help you navigate the process of selling your home. While many agents advertise ‘Free Market Evaluation’ I believe I can offer exceptional value beyond just establishing the ‘market price’. Allow me to explain – for many agents, ‘market evaluation’ is simply gathering historical sales data from comparable properties to establish a potential selling price. This is promoted as “Free Market Evaluation” and it’s a really good benchmark and starting point. The challenge is in what lies beyond the data – the marketing. It’s the key to ensuring your home is positioned to capitalize on it’s best features, marketed to it’s best audience and promoted in the most effective manner. As a 30 year veteran of the corporate marketing world, I believe I can bring exceptional value to your real estate experience, beyond purely providing a “Free Market Evaluation”.
Let’s have a coffee or book a call and discuss your real estate goals, timelines and concerns.
I’m confident you’ll appreciate a fresh approach and one that’s backed by years of marketing experience. No obligations. No high pressure sales. Honest discussion. Flexible commissions.
The real estate market in Peterborough continues to grow. The average house price was up 12%1 compared to 2019. Peterborough is considered among the top 10 cities to buy real estate2 in Ontario. Your home could be worth more than you know and the smallest details can make a big difference in the final sale price.

There are many factors that influence your homes market value. Location, age, renovations, and design choices are only a few of the variables that can impact what your home is really worth. Understanding your homes unique features and the audience they appeal to is fundamental. However, being able to target that audience and promote your property to those buyers is absolutely critical. This is the process of creating a marketing strategy including ‘target marketing’ and it goes well beyond a typical ‘market evaluation’.
As an example, I recently helped one of my clients in the North End of Peterborough sell their home for almost 10% over asking price. We were able to achieve these results without ‘holding offers’ or pricing below market value by establishing a sound marketing strategy.
I would be pleased to discuss your homes value and how we can maximize your return using target marketing.
