Karlis Bite, who was president of the Cambridge Association of Realtors (CAR) for much of 2016, is spending more time on the road.

The Cambridge realtor has to, he says, to get an edge in Canada’s tightest local housing market, the only market where last month homes sold faster than they were listed, according to the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA).

“Me and my buyer were basically stalking a house,” recalls Bite of a recent trek. He tells BuzzBuzzNews he’s been motoring around Cambridge with eyes peeled for coming-soon signs, which sellers use to generate interest in properties before listing them for sale online.
