Real Estate News: Toronto Home Sales Jump in July

August 14, 2014
The Toronto Real Estate Board just posted the sales information for July, and sales are up again! A 10% jump in sales in sales represents the second best July sales record in history.
 
Detached houses saw the biggest jump in sales followed closely by condominiums. The jump is attributed to a switch from renting to owning in big segments of the populations. As we mentioned in our previous post, unmarried couples are starting to take-on mortgages before the big day.
 
However July is a red-hot month for another reason - vacation time. When you're thinking of moving, July is a great time to do it because you can take the vacation time to move into your new place. However now that fall is approaching, there are still many opportunities for people to buy, in a potentially less competitive market. With sales like this in July, things are sure to open up in August or September.

Real Estate News: Why should we be confident in the housing market?

July 31, 2014

The Globe and Mail reported last week that the "mood in Toronto's housing market is still buoyant," which could be the reason for the strong sales TREB reported in June (see our previous blog post Real Estate News: Sales up in June). In fact, perceptions related to the value of real estate in Canadian neighbourhoods are 10 percentage points above the six-year average. 

The reason for this confidence is multifaceted. First, more listings are becoming available on the market. People don't feel the intense competition they once did, and can ease their way into a home search. Sellers are becoming more realistic with pricing, so overpriced homes don't sit on the market, making buyers more confident in their ability to buy a home. Similarly, people are spreading out their listings, trying to sell in the low times (such as July and August) to avoid increased competition in the peak months. Finally, low interest rates continue to make confident buyers. 

For more information on confidence in the market, check out The Globe and Mail's article: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/home-and-garden/real-estate/buoyant-mood-keeps-toronto-housing-market-brisk/article19655238/

Real Estate News: Townhouses and Semis Another Suburban Option

July 29, 2014
Several factors in the city are affecting the way homes are built in the suburbs. 
 
As prices continue to increase, professionals who have lived their whole lives in the city, are moving to the suburbs. But these city-savvy professionals are looking to buy city-style homes. This includes condominiums, semis and townhouses. 
 
Condominiums, semis and townhouses offer smaller, manageable spaces, in the more laid-back suburbs. While you have access to beautiful green spaces, you're not responsible for maintaining them as you would be in a larger home. Another reason individuals are investing in these homes, is their reluctance to borrow. If you feel more comfortable putting down a larger down payment, despite the low interest rates, townhouses can be a more affordable option for home ownership. Finally there are a variety of beautiful condos, semis and townhouses available in Mississauga.

Real Estate News: Sales up in June

July 8, 2014 - Updated: July 8, 2014
The Toronto Real Estate Board announced on Friday that there was a "strong increase in residential sales" this June. Semi-detached houses saw the greatest increase in sales while condominiums sales remain stable. President of the Board, Paul Etherington predicts sales will be strong well into the summer. 

Strong sales are attributed to confident buyers and affordability. As the economy strengthens, buyers are becoming more confident in their ability to afford a home. The banks are also  are offering excellent interest rates on mortgages. Owning a home is a profitable long term investment, especially in our growing and exciting community.
