HO HO HO here comes Santa! The annual Santa Clause parade comes to town on Sunday and if that doesn’t signal the start of winter then this week’s blast of early snow sure did. Despite the early onset of snow and temperature drop there is no sign that the real estate market is slipping into hibernation yet. A shortage of listings has been the problem for most of the year but when we ask around the office if agents have buyers they are working with everyone puts their hand up. We know there are many frustrated buyers out there, but we would encourage them to all keep looking. If you are thinking of putting your buying intentions on hold you might pay the ultimate price when prices escalate in the Spring...just like

they did last year.


Clearly as we see the year start to wind down freehold listings are not increasing week to week. Last week we saw an 8% drop and sales also dropped by 7%. These statistics are not uncommon when you compare to previous years. Its more a statement of the approaching winter market. Still, sentiment for home ownership remains strong as nearly 61% of sales happened at or above the list price.


The condo market on the other hand saw a 10% increase in new sales last week, but a sharp drop in sales down by 24%. Multiple offers once reaching a high of 52% of suites sold back in October has diminished to a still healthy 43% of condos selling at or above the asking price. We are still seeing heightened activity in the more price-friendly price point for first time buyers being between $400K to $700K.

The Toronto Real Estate Board released the market stats for the month of October and all we can say is we are UP! October continued the string of strong performances. Beginning in the spring the Toronto and GTA market have shown month per month growth in sales and sale prices. The average sale price for the City of Toronto is $925,498 up 6.4% from a year ago. The number of sales has also increased by 8.7%. Still the growing concern is the lack of inventory with active listings down almost 6% compared to last year resulting in tighter market conditions and accelerating price growth.


Last week in the city the freehold sector saw a 10% drop in new listings. Sales were also lower than the previous week, down 12%. We are still witnessing a bit of everything, with some listings sitting on the market, some listings selling in crazy bidding wars and scores of potential buyers cautiously waiting for the right house. Still, sentiment for home ownership remains strong as nearly 55% of home transactions in the 416 sold at or above the asking price.


The condo market did not see an increase in new listings but rather a 12% drop from the previous week, but sales were up 9%. The condo sector stats for October were also stellar. The average condo price came in at $662,631 up 9.8% from October 2018. With nearly 50% of sold units still happening at or above the list price, the condo market continues to lead the way in terms of price growth in the GTA..

With no distractions to stand in our way for at least the next month or so we should see a return to a more customary fall market. No more holidays and disruptions just a steady pace of more listings and sales to continue. With two months left in 2019 there is still plenty of transactions on the horizon and our research shows there are plenty of buyers waiting for the perfect home.


Last week freehold listings shot up 53% considering the prior three weeks were sluggish. The crowd of hopeful sellers all waited to list their properties as soon as Thanksgiving was over. Certain neighbourhoods are still crazy busy, especially Riverdale/Leslieville where “special” properties are getting snapped up in a day. We are seeing sale prices surpass the craziness of the early days of 2017. Again, with the shortage of listings we are experiencing very localized market conditions.


The condo sector held steady in terms of new resale listings as the number of available suites dropped a marginal 5% from the previous week. Sales were also down however the demand is still visible with 44% of units selling at or above the

list price. CMHC is forecasting a robust market for the next two years. Conditions in Toronto mean first-time buyers are likely to face stiffer competition for homes therefore looking for more affordable types of housing like condos. Condo prices will remain strong because they feed the demand for homebuyers but also investors buying to rent out their unit.

Home sales continue to rebound as sales jump across the country. It’s the seventh straight month that home sales have grown with an upswing in activity, and record prices in Toronto and the surrounding suburbs. This has many people concerned as to the affordability which has become a major issue in the upcoming federal election with all major parties promising to improve affordability, particularly for first-time buyers. With all this uncertainty and the Thanksgiving holiday last week, it did contribute to a slowdown in both listings and sales in all neighbourhoods of Toronto. As we wade into the final days of the election, we shall soon see who will hold power. Get out and vote!


The freehold market continues to follow the long weekend pattern with listings down 32%, while sales remained consistent with the previous week. Sales at or above the list price also fell slightly from the previous week to 54%. The east end

is still leading the pack with 63 percent of sales sold at or above the asking price.


The condo resale market has finally broken from tradition by mimicking its freehold rival. Listings were off pace, down 12% from last week while sales tapered off by 11%. Sales at or above the list price dropped to 43%, the lowest its been since the summer months. The hot spot in the downtown core is the $450,000 to $700,000 price range with one out of every two condos selling at or above the list price.
