Toronto Condo Market Keeps Sizzling Through Winter

February 6, 2018- The Toronto Real Estate Board’s January 2018 statistics show that, although 416 detached home prices are down 12% from a year ago, the average 416 condo apartment sale price is up 15%. Still, due to the low inventory of homes on the market, many freehold properties are selling over asking. Let’s also keep in mind we started 2018 under freezing cold weather conditions, whereas 2017 began quite warm. With new borrowing rules and rising interest rates, (and the weather warming up), the time to list is NOW, while some buyers still have pre-approvals at lower rates under the old rules. Don’t wait for Spring.

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.
