The Windsor-Essex housing market is set to remain strong in 2016 and is predicted to see a rise in first-time buyers. The president of the Windsor-Essex County Association of Realtors, Norm Langlois, expects buoyancy in the labour market to drive sales with 25-34 year olds particularly keen to become homeowners. The market is a tight one with listings down an average 5.68 per cent over the past three months while sales increased 21 per cent. The average sales price has risen 11.7 per cent over the three months to $205,967.
