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. With limited land to develop, and fewer house owners selling, the only way to add more units is to build vertically. Read the full details of the February 2018 TREB report here.

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

Toronto Possibly Heading Towards A More Balanced Real Estate Market

May 5, 2017- The Toronto real estate market remains very active and sale prices are strong. However, new listings were up over 33% March 2017 compared with March 2016 and active listings were up 3% from a year ago. So, if inventory is increasing, we may be heading to a more balanced market, from the seller’s market Toronto has seen for what seems like forever. Time to sell if you were on the fence and time to buy before interest rates increase.
