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.

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.
