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.

Toronto Condo Market Reaching New Heights

November 2, 2017- The October 2017 stats show that the average sale price of detached homes in Toronto is now $1,287,765- back to about the same level it was at a year ago. However, condo apartment prices have increased 20.9% in a year- to an average of $555,004. The demand for condos is increasing for several reasons- freehold house prices are not affordable for many, rentals are high priced and hard to find, and many home owners- young and old- are choosing to live experientially instead of maintaining a house.

Yes: The Toronto Real Estate Market Is Still Strong

September 9, 2017- While it is true overall that much of the year over year value gains in real estate had diminished by this summer, condos and demand freehold properties in some neighbourhoods are still attracting multiple offers and over list prices. Like downtown condos, with year over year price increases of 24.4% west of Yonge (C01) and 18.7% east of Yonge (C08). Rising mortgage rates may spur waiting buyers to get back in the market. This Fall will be interesting. Read TREB’s Market Watch report and contact Andrea Stark, Sales Representative, J&D Division of Royal LePage R.E. Svcs. Ltd., Brokerage 416-489-2121
