This weeks collection of old homes are absolute gems. As fast as I post the new houses they seem to be selling. This week I posted a gorgeous brick victorian on Facebook and in a couple days it was sold. As I watch the market it is clear that houses are being scooped up as fast as they are being listed in some parts of the country. To see full listings of the properties listed below please visit Realtor.ca.
