Many of my clients who are currently buying a property have been asking me the same questions...."Should I buy before the July 1st implementation of HST?" answer to the question is straight forward...."Absolutely!"....I don't say so solely based on the fact that real estate transaction costs will be increasing after July 1st, but based on the fact that real estate prices gradually increase historically, and have done so at a an accelerated pace over the course of the past year. Furthermore, I expect prices to continue their upward trend going into 2011.
