Now seeing that rates did in fact drop as of yesterday. The HSBC 2.99% is now 2.84%. Which explains why RBC and TD were able to come so close in the last few days.

I called them and it's 2.99%. They said they I could do a rate hold and if rate drops by June renewal than I get lower of the two. Done!

Have you considered a small algebraic adjustment? ;)
Add 1.5% to asking price, offer 2.5% to agents. Same net result, more traffic from agents.

Just a thought! Good luck. It's a great time to...

Yes this was for 41 Knockaderry, original list 650K for a fairly avg 2400 sq ft home. It is still way overpriced. I believe one of the other 2 larger homes at the higher price point sold.
