Subject: Toronto Real Estate Post May Edition


Hooray - the warm weather is finally here! We are seeing a delayed start to the spring real estate market given the unusually long winter we have had. Active listings in April were lower than historical norms, but we expect listings to increase this month as the weather improves. The downtown condo re-sale market remains very competitive as the more stringent mortgage qualifying criteria introduced in January has increased the number of buyers at this price point.

We will be closely following the upcoming Provincial Elections in June as Party leaders have opposing views on government’s involvement with policies affecting the real estate market. Fixed rates mortgages increased last week with many of the major financial institutions. Buyers with active pre-approvals are not affected by this rate increase as long as they purchase within the 90 day rate hold period.

This month be sure to enter to win two tickets to a Toronto FC Soccer Game, review the monthly market statistics, and much more!
