GTAWesthomes Resale Market Update January 2018

Real Estate Resale Market Update for January 2018:

The market in different areas behaved very differently.  Some of the neighbourhoods saw multiple offers and the prices were high compared to other neighbourhoods.  The buyers are definately out now to buy the homes.  So if you need market status on your street or in your neighbourhood, please feel free to send me a text or email.

Toronto Real Estate Board President Tim Syrianos announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,019 residential transactions through TREB's MLS® System in January 2018. This result was down by 22 per cent compared to a record 5,155 sales reported in January 2017.

The number of new listings entered into TREB's MLS® System amounted to 8,585 – a 17.4 per cent increase compared to 7,314 new listings entered in January 2017. However, it is important to note that the level of new listings was the second lowest for the month of January in the past 10 years.

"TREB released its outlook for 2018 on January 30th. The outlook pointed to a slower start to 2018, especially compared to the record-setting pace experienced a year ago. As we move through the year, expect the pace of home sales to pick up, as the psychological impact of the Fair Housing Plan starts to wane and home buyers find their footing relative to the new OSFImandated stress test for mortgage approvals through federally regulated lenders," said Mr. Syrianos.

The MLS® Home Price Index Composite Benchmark was up by 5.2 per cent year-over-year. This annual rate of growth was driven by the condominium apartment market segment, with doubledigit annual growth versus the single-family segment, with prices essentially flat compared to last year. The overall average selling price was down by 4.1 per cent year-over-year to $736,783. This decline was weighted toward the detached segment of the market. In the City of Toronto, the average selling price was up for all home types except for detached houses.

"It is not surprising that home prices in some market segments were flat to down in January compared to last year. At this time last year, we were in the midst of a housing price spike driven by exceptionally low inventory in the marketplace. It is likely that market conditions will support a return to positive price growth for many home types in the second half of 2018. The condominium apartment segment will be the driver of this price growth," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Director of Market Analysis.

GTAWesthomes reports May 2017 Resale Market watch
Posted on Mon, 05 Jun 2017, 07:40:00 PM  in REAL ESTATE RESALE MARKET REPORT
Tags:,  ,    

TORONTO, June 5, 2017 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Larry Cerqua announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 10,196 sales through TREB’s MLS® System in May 2017 – down by 20.3 per cent compared to 12,790 sales reported in May 2016. Sales of detached homes were down by 26.3 per cent. Sales of condominium apartments were down by 6.4 per cent. The supply of listings was up strongly over the same period. Active listings – the number of properties available for sale – at the end of May were up by 42.9 per cent compared to the record low a year earlier. The number increased considerably for low-rise home types including detached and semi-detached houses and townhouses. Active listings for condominium apartments were down compared to May 2016. “Home buyers definitely benefitted from a better supplied market in May, both in comparison to the same time last year and to the first four months of 2017. However, even with the robust increase in active listings, inventory levels remain low. At the end of May, we had less than two months of inventory. This is why we continued to see very strong annual rates of price growth, albeit lower than the peak growth rates earlier this year,” said Mr. Cerqua. Selling prices continued to increase strongly in May compared to the same month in 2016. The MLS® HPI Composite Benchmark price was up by 29 per cent year-over-year. The average selling price for all home types combined for the TREB Market Area as a whole was up by 14.9 per cent to $863,910. Year-over-year price increases were greater for condominium apartments compared to low-rise home types. This likely reflects the fact that the low-rise market segments benefitted most from the increase in listings. “The actual, or normalized, effect of the Ontario Fair Housing Plan remains to be seen. In the past, some housing policy changes have initially led to an overreaction on the part of homeowners and buyers, which later balanced out. On the listings front, the increase in active listings suggests that homeowners, after a protracted delay, are starting to react to the strong price growth we’ve experienced over the past year by listing their home for sale to take advantage of these equity gains,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.

Real Estate Resale Market Report November 2015
Posted on Thu, 03 Dec 2015, 07:05:00 PM  in REAL ESTATE RESALE MARKET REPORT
Tags:,  ,    

Record Sales in November 2015

December 3, 2015 -- Toronto Real Estate Board President Mark McLean announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 7,385 home sales through TREB's MLS® System in November 2015 – up by 14 per cent compared to November 2014. This result also represented the best result on record for the month of November. Sales through the first eleven months of 2015 amounted to 96,401.

"Not only did we see a record sales result for November, but with one month left to go in 2015, we have already set a new calendar year record for home sales in the TREB market area, eclipsing the previous record set in 2007. Sales were up on a year-over-year basis for all major home types, both in the City of Toronto and surrounding regions. This suggests that the demand for ownership housing is widespread, from first-time buyers to long-time homeowners across the GTA," said Mr. McLean.

The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Composite Benchmark was up by 10.3 per cent year over year in November. The average selling price for all transactions was also up by a similar annual rate of 9.6 per cent to $632,685. Annual rates of average price growth for November and the first eleven months of 2015 were similar, with the strongest rates of increase being reported for low-rise home types, including detached and semi-detached houses and townhouses.

"Demand for ownership housing has remained strong in the GTA throughout 2015, with sales generally increasing at a greater annual rate compared to new listings. This means that competition between buyers has strengthened in many neighbourhoods in the City of Toronto and surrounding regions. The end result has been upward pressure on home prices well above the rate of inflation in most cases," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Director of Market Analysis.

GTAWESTHOMES RELEASE-MONTHLY RESALE HOUSING FIGURES-OCTOBER 2015
Posted on Thu, 05 Nov 2015, 03:10:00 PM  in REAL ESTATE RESALE MARKET REPORT
Tags:,  ,    

TORONTO, November 5, 2015 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Mark McLean

announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 8,804 home sales through

TREB’s MLS® System in October 2015. This is the best result on record for the month of

October.

“It is clear that many GTA households remain upbeat about home ownership because

owning a home represents a high quality, long-term investment. We will see a big, new

record this year for home sales reported through TREB’s MLS® System,” said Mr.

McLean.

“Despite the record October result, I must point out that the Government of Ontario could

hamper home sales in the near future. The Wynne government is seriously considering

allowing municipalities throughout Ontario to institute a second land transfer tax on top of

the existing provincial tax. Recent polling has shown that the great majority of Ontarians

oppose this tax and would consider delaying a move if they were forced to bear the

additional upfront cost,” added Mr. McLean.

The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Composite Benchmark was up by 10.3 per cent year

over year in October. Over the same period, the average selling price for all home types

combined was up by 7.3 per cent to $630,876. Price growth continued to be driven by the

low-rise market segments.

“Record sales coupled with a constrained supply of listings in many GTA neighbourhoods

has underpinned very strong price growth throughout 2015. Even if we do see a greater

supply of low-rise listings in the marketplace over the next year, market conditions will

remain tight enough to see continued price growth well-above the rate of inflation,” said

Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.

GTA Condo Real Estate Market Update -Condominium September 2015
Posted on Fri, 23 Oct 2015, 08:25:00 PM  in REAL ESTATE RESALE MARKET REPORT
Tags:,  ,    

Toronto Real Estate Board President Mark McLean announced strong year-over-year growth in condominium apartment sales reported through TREB’s MLS® System in the third quarter of 2015. Sales were up by close to 11 per cent to 6,586 compared to Q3 2014. New listings entered into the System during the quarter and active listings at the end of the quarter were also up on an annual basis, but by a lesser rate compared to sales.

“The condominium apartment market segment has been a key contributor to overall growth in GTA home sales this year. With continued sales growth expected in the fourth quarter, we are on track for a new record in condo transactions through TREB’s MLS® System this year,” said Mr. McLean.

“As the absorption rate for condos accelerated over the last year, tighter market conditions have resulted in sustained price growth,” continued McLean. Annual growth in the average and median selling prices and the MLS® HPI Benchmark for apartments exceeded the annual rate of inflation in the third quarter. For the TREB market area as a whole, the average selling price for condo apartments was up by 5.4 per cent year-over year.The median selling price was up by 4.4 per cent. The MLS® HPI Benchmark for apartments was up by 5.6 per cent at the end of September.

“The condominium apartment market has certainly benefited from an increase in the supply of listings over the past year. However, through the first three quarters of 2015, growth in sales has actually outstripped growth in listings. This suggests that there was a certain amount of pent-up demand for condominium apartments. As new projects have completed, investor-held units listed for sale have been absorbed very quickly by end users, to the point where price growth has remained strong,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.

Record Home Sales in September 2015

October 5, 2015 -- Toronto Real Estate Board President Mark McLean announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported a record number of transactions for the month of September through TREB's MLS® System. There was a combined 8,200 home sales reported for September 2015. This result was up 2.5 per cent compared to September 2014.

TREB MLS® sales through the first nine months of 2015 amounted to 80,331, which also represented a record result and a 9.5 per cent increase compared to the first three quarters of 2014.

"We are on track for record home sales reported through TREB's MLS® System this year. Barring a drastic shift in the economy over the next three months, total transactions reported by TREB Members in 2015 are expected to be at or near the 100,000 mark. This is a testament to the importance that GTA households put on home ownership as a long-term investment," said Mr. McLean.

The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Composite Benchmark Price was up by 10.5 per cent year over year. The average selling price for all home types combined was also up by 9.2 per cent annually to $627,395. Growth in the MLS® HPI Composite Benchmark and the average price was driven by the low-rise market segments, including detached and semidetached houses and townhouses.

"While September was the second straight month where annual growth in new listings outstripped annual growth sales, total active listings at the end of the month still remained below last year's level. This, coupled with the record pace of sales experienced so far this year, suggests that competition between buyers will remain strong as we move into the fourth quarter. Expect strong rates of price growth to continue through the remainder of 2015 and into 2016," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Director of Market Analysis.

GTA REALTORS® RELEASE RESALE CONDOMINIUM MARKET FIGURES
Posted on Mon, 20 Apr 2015, 08:24:30 PM  in REAL ESTATE RESALE MARKET REPORT
Tags:,  ,    

Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,940 condominium apartment sales during the first quarter of 2015. This result represented an 11.1 per cent increase compared to 4,447 sales reported in Q1 2014. New listings were also up on a year-over-year basis by 6.2 per cent. The fact that sales grew at a faster pace than new listings contributed to active listings remaining virtually unchanged at the end of the quarter, in comparison to 2014.
"The condo apartment segment represents a very important component of the overall GTA housing market and particularly the City of Toronto, which accounted for 70 per cent of total condo apartment transactions reported by REALTORS® in the first quarter.


Newly completed condo units listed for sale over the past few months have been met with a substantial amount of demand from end users,” said Mr. Etherington.


The average selling price for condominium apartments in the first quarter was up by 3.6 per cent year-over-year to $363,973. During the first three months of the year, the MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) benchmark for apartments was up by a similar amount, ranging between three and four per cent annually. The fact that average price growth and growth in the MLS® HPI benchmark was similar in the first quarter suggests that the mix of units sold was similar this year compared to last.


“The condo apartment price growth we experienced in the first quarter is indicative of a healthy marketplace where there is enough demand relative to the supply of listings to see moderate year-over-year price growth. In other words, we are very much experiencing balanced market conditions as it relates to condos,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis

GTAWESTHOMES REPORT MID MONTH APRIL 2015 REAL ESTATE MARKET REPORT
Posted on Thu, 16 Apr 2015, 10:40:26 AM  in REAL ESTATE RESALE MARKET REPORT
Tags:,  ,    

 

TORONTO, April 16, 2015 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,635 home sales during the first 14 days of April 2015. This result represented a 3.4 per cent increase compared to April 2014. New listings over the same period were down by 4.6 per cent year over year.

“Home sales in the GTA continued to increase in comparison to 2014 as a diversity of buyers took advantage of affordable home ownership options. However, in many neighbourhoods, listings remain scarce, particularly for ground-oriented home types like singles, semis and towns. Given the amount of pent-up demand in the market today, sales growth would accelerate further if more homes were listed for sale,” said Mr. Etherington.

The average selling price for April mid-month home sales was $625,121 – up seven per cent in comparison to the same time frame in 2014. Average prices were up for all major home types,both in the City of Toronto and the surrounding regions.

“We are experiencing balanced to seller’s market conditions in most areas and market segments in the GTA. This suggests that home ownership demand is being driven by a wide swath of the population. On one hand, strong growth in condo listings has been met with strong growth in condo sales. On the other hand, we have also experienced growth in higher-end home sales,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.

GTAWESTHOMES REPORT-MID MONTH REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE- MARCH 2015

REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE- MID MARCH 2015

Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 3,838 sales through the TorontoMLS system during the first two weeks of March 2015. This result represented an 11.8 per cent increase compared to the same period in 2014. New listings were also up over the same period, but by a lesser annual rate of 8.4 per cent.

“Strong year-over-year growth in home sales continued during the first half of March for most home types in the GTA, both in the City of Toronto and the surrounding regions. This suggests that households continue to view the purchase of a home as a quality long-term investment. But for a lack of low-rise listings in some neighbourhoods, it is quite possible that the number of sales could have been higher,” said Mr. Etherington.

The average selling price for transactions reported during the first two weeks of March was $620,106 – up by 10.6 per cent compared to the same period in 2014. Price growth was driven by low-rise home types, including detached and semi-detached houses and townhouses.

“The fact that sales growth has continued to outpace listings growth suggests that there is pent-up demand in the marketplace, especially for singles, semis and townhouses. This is why we have experienced a sustained period of strong price growth for low-rise home types. So far in March, we have also experienced a greater share of high-end detached home sales compared to the same time frame in 2014. This has also influenced growth in the average selling price,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.
