Residential Market Commentary - week of January 23, 2017

President Donald Trump is now officially ensconced in the White House.  And it appears all of those Americans who threatened to move to Canada, because of him, may have been more serious than we thought.

You will recall that Google reported a huge spike in searches for the phrase “move to Canada” immediately after Trump’s election in November.  The number of inquiries to Citizenship and Immigration Canada crashed the department’s website.

Now Royal LePage has released a quirky report that shows its website saw traffic from the U.S. surge around the time of the U.S. election, and that traffic has been sustained.

The realtor says visits to the site skyrocketed by 329% the day after the November 8th vote and it was up by 210% for a week afterwards.  It says traffic from the U.S. for the October to December period was 40% higher than the same period a year ago.
