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 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.

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.
