It seems each month has been a record breaker for the real estate industry in York Region and across the GTA. Central Richmond Hill N04 district led the way in January with a 59 per cent overall increase in sales compared to mid-January 2007, mainly as a result of attached/row house transactions.

Across the Greater Toronto Area there were 1,776 transactions, an increase of 11 per cent increase over the same timeframe a year ago, announced Toronto Real Estate Board President Maureen O’Neill. The average time a property is currently on the market is 41 days, down 13 per cent as compared to a year ago. The average price also increased considerably compared to the first half of January 2007. It currently stands at $367,574 an eight per cent increase over the $340,793 recorded at mid-January a year ago.

This is your chance to vote for the persons who will represent you at a local government level. It is important to cast your vote, because local Councillors have a strong impact on the future of your community. They decide how your property taxes are spent and what services the municipality will provide to you and your family. You will also be voting for school board trustees who are responsible for authorizing the construction and maintenance of schools, hiring teachers and staff and authorizing spending on educational programmes.

Here is “official” list of candidates by office. For more information go to Town of Richmond Hill Elections 2006 page...
