Jason Cossette, the 2017 president of the Association of Regina Realtors (ARR), says he has reason for optimism in the local real estate market.
“Despite the resource sector taking a hit for the past two years and a drop in overall housing demand, the Regina real estate market is performing well,” he says.
“Buyers need to be ready to act, given the potential for lower inventory than in recent years. Sellers look to be well positioned in the months ahead; timing and a good pricing strategy will allow them to take advantage of some pent-up demand in the market.”
Cossette, a sales rep with Re/Max Crown Real Estate in Regina, is a third generation Reginan and second generation Realtor.
Joining him on the 2017 ARR Board of Directors: president-elect Tim Otitoju, Platinum Realty Specialists; past-president Rick Miron, Re/Max Crown Real Estate; Darren Bostock, Global Direct Realty; Karin Wees, RealtyOne Real Estate Services; Doug Slinn, Century 21 Dome Realty; Peter Fourlas, Royal LePage Regina Realty; Vicki Pantelopoulos, Global Direct Realty; and Dave Markus, Century 21 Dome Realty.
Lane Boghean and Noel Geremia of Century 21 Dome Realty serve as vice president and Regina region director of the Association of Saskatchewan Realtors.
