Subject: Toronto Real Estate Post November Edition


As predicted the central bank increased the overnight rate by 25 basis points and the banks immediately followed suit and raised their prime rate to 3.95%. This marks the fifth time the central bank has raised the overnight rate since 2017. This will translate into slightly higher borrowing costs for home owners and experts are suggesting another rate increase may be forthcoming before the end of the year.

Tighter mortgage qualification criteria coupled with strong migration growth into the GTA, has prompted condominiums to lead the Toronto real estate market in 2018. Buyers who are looking to purchase a mid-rise or high-rise condominium are facing a highly competitive market, especially downtown Toronto. There continues to be supply constraints with new condominium listings both downtown and in North York as there are fewer active listings compared to the same period last year. Smaller units have become the norm in newer condominium developments, although we are seeing more end-users choosing to pay a little more to be in a larger unit in a low or mid-rise condominium.

"Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 6,455 sales through TREB's MLS® System in September 2018 – up 1.9 per cent compared to September 2017. The average selling price for September 2018 sales was up by 2.9 per cent over the same period to $796,786. The MLS® HPI composite benchmark price was up by two per cent year-over-year.

New listings entered into TREB's MLS® System in September 2018 amounted to 15,920 – down by 3.1 per cent compared to September 2017. With sales up year-over-year and new listings down, market conditions became tighter. Many buyers may have found it more difficult to find a home meeting their needs."

Toronto’s Housing Market Sees a Shift to Mid-rise Development
"There’s a subtle shift under way in the Greater Toronto Area’s presale condominium market in 2018: As developers are launching fewer towering projects designed to woo investors, they are finding there’s still a strong market for people looking to pay a little more money for a larger, family-friendly unit in neighbourhoods outside the downtown core."
