Toronto Real Estate Prices Still Strong

Aug 6, 2017- Don’t let sensational headlines sway you- the Toronto real estate market may not have seen increases in the last few months, but hey- it is summer. And prices were increasing at a rapid rate. TREB’s Market Watch Report shows that year to date average sale prices of all home types have increased 17.3% from this time last year. Still a large gain. So if you are considering buying, don’t sit on the fence- with mortgage rates rising and lending rules tightening, buy now. Thinking of selling? Don’t wait. There is pent up demand for good properties and lending practices will make it more and more difficult for buyers to be able to borrow. Now is the time.

TREB Stats Show: Now Is The Time To Buy Toronto Real Estate

July 5, 2017- Active listings are finally up for freehold properties. But active 416 condo apartment listings are actually down 32% from a year ago. The average detached 416 house sells for $1,503,868, the average 416 condo apartment $564,808. There is less than a two month supply of homes so there is demand for properties. There has been a blip with many factors happening at one time, like the Ontario Fair Housing Act and many homeowners listing all at once, but the feeling is that the Toronto market will stay strong. A good time to be buying, especially a freehold property.

Toronto Possibly Heading Towards A More Balanced Real Estate Market

May 5, 2017- The Toronto real estate market remains very active and sale prices are strong. However, new listings were up over 33% March 2017 compared with March 2016 and active listings were up 3% from a year ago. So, if inventory is increasing, we may be heading to a more balanced market, from the seller’s market Toronto has seen for what seems like forever. Time to sell if you were on the fence and time to buy before interest rates increase.
