Canadian’s Predicting Higher Home Prices Next Six Months

Standard

A recent survey shows Canadians are very optimistic about Real Estate in the next six months.

Over 47 per cent of Canadians are brushing off forecasts (they are everywhere) of a slowdown or bubble in a Real Estate Market that has been deemed “unsustainable”.

This has been the highest level of optimism since the survey began in 2008.

Toronto Real Estate sales were up 15.4 per cent year-over-year in June showing Toronto Home Buyers are still very interested in Homes and Condos.

Low rise Toronto Homes are still very popular and in the month of June all Home types(even Toronto Condos) increased in average price.

Toronto Condos Providing More Affordable Alterative To Toronto Houses

Standard
E Condos Toronto

E Condos Yonge Eglinton

Toronto Homes are becoming more expensive in the first half of 2014 due to lack of supply and more buyers than Home listings.

According to a recent report from the Royal Bank the cost of owning a two-storey Toronto House amounts to 65 per cent of household pretax income for the average Toronto family.

Toronto Condos on the other hand require just 34.2 per cent of pre-tax income, a much more affordable option.

The average price of a new Toronto Condominium is now $437,663 according to a leading Condo marketing firm.

In May the average price of a resale Toronto Condo in the C08 area was $425,322, very close to the average price of a new Condo.

The average Toronto Condominium price for all GTA Condos in May increased by 6.4% to $373,509.

Again,Toronto Bay Bloor Condos and Toronto Bay College Condo listings continue to be very popular with our downtown Toronto Condominium buyers.

Toronto Condo Market Threatens Canada’s Housing Market

Standard

According to a recent TD Bank report Canada’s housing market is 10 per cent overvalued with the biggest risk in Toronto Condo overbuilding.

The Toronto high-rise Condominium market has everyone watching closely including the Canadian Banks, Mortgage Brokers an all levels of Government including the Federal Government that has intervened in the last few years.

The question arises on how many of the many new Toronto Condos are being purchased by investors or by end-users.

If foreign investors withdraw from the huge Toronto Condo market more unsalable listings could result in falling prices similar to the recent U.S. Real Estate drop.

The overvaluation number is thought to be 10 per cent across Canada.

Toronto Housing Bubble Fears Are Overblown-Housing Report

Standard

According to the Conference Board of Canada fears of a housing bubble are overblown in their recent report.

Affordability is the key with low mortgage rates and low-interest rates keeping home buyers still able to buy Homes.

Principal and interest rates ratios remain the same that they have been in for the last 20 years.

Mortgage rates are a big deciding factor for Canadian Home buyers, not just the asking Home price according to Economists.

Looking at six Real Estate Markets in Canada it was found there was a good balance of buyers and sellers in each market.

Mortgage rates are expected to rise in 2014 but not too quickly because Canada’s economy remains in a slow-growth mode and interest rates should stay low well into 2015.
