Toronto Real Estate Home Sales May Be Down From Last Year’s Highs, But There Are Some Price Gains……………………..

May 4, 2018- From a high point in Spring 2017, sales may be down 32% and the average sale price of a detached home down 14.3% (to $1,354,719), but due to demand and low inventory, some homes are currently attracting multiple offers and way over list sale prices. And condo apartments are selling 3.8% higher on average than a year ago (now $601,211). Many buyers plan on buying a property in the GTA, so once the current volatility due to governmental policies like new mortgage rules has settled, we expect sales and prices to pick up even more in the Toronto Real Estate Market.

Toronto Condo Market Overtaking Toronto House Market

March 6, 2018- Although the number of residential real estate sales is down 35% from February 2017, sale prices of condo apartments are up 10.7% in Toronto and condo townhouse prices are up 15.5%! Detached house prices are down 18.6%. Semi-detached home sale prices are down 9%. In Central Toronto, the average sale price of a detached home is $2,027,761 and the average condo apartment sells for $645,195.

Government Intervention Balanced Toronto’s Hot Real Estate Market

January 7, 2018- Between the implementation of the Ontario Fair Housing Plan last Spring and recent OSFI lending rule changes, the Toronto Real Estate Market has become less of a seller’s market. Sale prices of detached homes in Central Toronto increased only .5% from December 2016 to December 2017. Condo apartment prices still increased 15% year over year. Condos of all sizes remain in strong demand. With the freezing temperatures, the Spring 2018 housing market may start slowly, but quality homes in demand neighbourhoods will continue to be attractive to smart home buyers.

Strong Demand For Condos Leads Toronto Real Estate Market News

December 6, 2017- Condo apartment sale prices are up 17.7% from a year ago and condo townhome prices are up 12.3%. There is strong demand for condos of all sizes and types- including the over $2,000,000 price point. The freehold house market is less predictable right now. For example, prices of detached homes in Central Toronto are down 1.7% from a year ago, although some attract multiple offers and sell over asking. The feeling is that the newest wave of government regulations, regarding mortgage lending, which come into play after the end of this year, will not affect the ability of most buyers to buy and that we will see a strong Spring market- condos especially.
