How to get top dollar for your home - article from MoneySense

This is an article that appeared in MoneySense about How to get top dollar for your home and some information the current state of our real estate market in 2011.  Too bad we didn't have the foresight back then to see how much the average price would increase, otherwise we would have purchased many properties!

Annual real estate cycle for Toronto and the GTA in Ontario over the past 20 years

Greeting from Fabulous Mississauga!

The graph below clearly shows the pattern of the annual real estate cycle for Toronto, the GTA in Ontario over the past 20 years.

 
This graph shows the cycle of how average price increases in the late winter and early spring, decreases during the summer months, increases again in the fall (but usually not as high as the highest price in the spring) and then decreases again over the  early winter months. The cycle repeats itself with near certainty, year after year and has done so since at least 1995.  When will this regular price increase stop? Nobody knows for sure, but it's a very interesting trend to see the seasonal fluctuations in home prices.

The only period that didn't show this regular increase was late 2008 to early 2009 during the Global Financial Crisis when housing prices fell more than 50% in some markets in the USA and elsewhere.  We only experienced a small downward 'blip' in our prices and then the steady increase began again in the spring of 2009

The graph below shows average single family residential prices of homes for the Toronto Real Estate Board.  Or, maybe you would like to see the average prices of single family residential homes since 1985








I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!
All the Best!

Another record setting month on the Toronto Real Estate Board for Residential Real Estate Sales

Greetings from Fabulous Mississauga!

We just experienced another record setting month on the Toronto Real Estate Board for residential real estate sales.  The number of sales was 11,303, 17% higher than same month last year.  Average prices are also at all time highs.

  • The Average price for last month was $635,932 (it was $613,933 the previous month) and this represents aver a 10% increase compared to the same month last year- see graph of prices here
  •  Sales volumes were 11,303 (it was 8,940 last month) and this is UP 17% from the same month last year 
  •  The Bank of Canada Prime Lending Rate steady at 2.75% read more





Below is the full price and data report from TREB for last month

Record Sales in April 2015

TORONTO, May 5, 2015 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 11,303 sales in April 2015.

This was the highest sales result on record for the month of April and represented a 17 per cent increase in comparison to April 2014. While sales increased strongly on a year-over-year basis, new listings were up over the same period by a more moderate five per cent.

“The record April result clearly points to the fact that a growing number of GTA households view ownership housing as a high quality, long-term investment. This is evidenced by the strong sales growth we have experienced in Toronto and surrounding regions for all major home types.

First time buyers and existing homeowners remain very active in today’s market,” said Mr. Etherington.

The overall average selling price, which accounts for all homes reported sold by GTA REALTORS® in April 2015, was up by 10 per cent year-over-year to $635,932. The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Composite Benchmark, which estimates the price of a benchmark home with the same attributes from one period to the next, was up by 8.4 per cent over the same period.

The fact that average price growth outpaced growth for the MLS® HPI Composite Benchmark, suggests that a greater share of higher-end homes changed hands this year compared to last.

Irrespective of the indicator used, price growth in the GTA was strongest for low-rise home types. However, the better supplied condominium apartment segment also remained healthy with price growth above the rate of inflation.

“Demand for ownership housing was very high relative to the number of homes available for sale in April. This situation is not expected to change markedly as we move through the remainder of 2015. Until we experience a sustained period in which listings grow at a faster pace than sales, annual rates of home price growth will remain strong,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.


All the Best!

When is the best time to sell your home in the GTA?

Hello,

I just read this article below that was sent to me by a client.

It contains great information about when to sell your home.

I've written about this in the past and you can read my thoughts about this subject at this link:


Enjoy!
Mark

Like everything in life, there are always exceptions to the rules.


Personally, I like these exceptions, as nothing is predictable – especially selling a house.

Still, it's good to know the basics, do your homework and factor in the required timelines.

Statistics show that spring is the best time to sell a house. You may read conflicting reports that will say March to May, or they may lump in April and July in to those calculations. However, with the recent real estate climate in the GTA, there really isn't a bad time. What you're selling can influence the time of year you choose to sell.

If you're listing a resale home, in order to buy a new home, you have to realistically factor in the closing date and, perhaps, add-on a bit of wiggle room. If you're listing a condominium or have to give the appropriate two-month notice to a landlord, you may not have to worry about the time of year as it relates to children starting school- unless the children are yours.

Starting a new school year at the beginning of September, and ensuring that kids can finish up the year at their old school, is one of the most important concerns for parents of school-age children. In this scenario, the family would prefer to move during the summer months, so count back and consider the following.

If your home is located in a family-friendly area, close to schools, shopping, etc., a new family will want to relocate during July or August.

Count back three months, as most offers ask for a 90-day closing. With this in mind, you'll want to have signed a deal by April. Again, if you're situated in the GTA, chances are that your home won't be on the market for long. But if you live in a rural area, or have a character property that’s quite different from the norm, you'll need to build in more selling time.

There are some advantages to listing your house earlier in the calendar year, rather than waiting for spring. Because the summer scenario is so popular, most people list their homes around April, which means there’s more competition. If you list your home in February, you may have other advantages.

During the winter months there's a lower supply of houses on the market. Also, maintaining your property requires less work on the outside at this time of year, since you don't have to tend gardens and keep the grass cut. Many of my clients have experienced a successful rate of return when they list in February.

Those people who are looking to buy in September or October may be looking for a better deal after the peak months have passed. Some agents will tell you that your house will sell quicker and closer to the asking price, if you list between Halloween and the New-year.

Homes look their best in the late summer and early fall. Gardens are mature, lawns (depending upon the weather) may be lush, and with a hint of autumn tingeing the air and the leaves, fireplaces can be lit and the ambiance created by indoor, and outdoor, lighting - all help to enhance the curbside appeal. Still, there are no hard and fast rules.

If you're selling and buying, it's always a juggle, so try not to have all your balls in the air at once.

Have a plan, and choose the timing that's right for you and your family.


I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!
All the Best!

Sales & Price Growth Continue in November

TORONTO, December 4, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 6,519 residential transactions through the TorontoMLS system in November 2014.

This result was up by 2.6 per cent compared to 6,354 sales reported in November 2013. Through the first 11 months of 2014, total sales amounted to 88,462 - up 6.6 per cent compared to the same period in 2013.

While the trend of year-over-year sales growth continued, the supply of listings remained constrained, with active listings at the end of November down in comparison to last year.

"Even with a constrained supply of homes for sale in many parts of the Greater Toronto Area, buyers continued to get deals done last month. Households remain upbeat about home ownership because monthly mortgage payments remain affordable relative to
accepted lending standards. This is coupled with the fact that housing has proven to be a quality long-term investment," stated Mr. Etherington.

The average selling price for November transactions was up by 7.4 per cent year-over-year to $577,936. The year-to-date average price was up by 8.4 per cent to $567,198.

The MLS(R) Home Price Index Composite Benchmark price for November was up by 7.7 per cent compared to a year earlier.

"The robust average price growth experienced throughout 2014 has been fundamentally sound, with demand high relative to supply. Strong competition between buyers has exerted upward pressure on selling prices. Barring a substantial shift in the relationship between sales and listings in the GTA, price growth is expected to continue through 2015," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Director of Market Analysis.

Real Estate fluctuations Cyclical and Seasonal Price Trends and Graphs in Toronto and Mississauga

Question from a reader:
One question regarding the cyclical pricing.. it looks from your graph http://www.mississauga4sale.com/avgprice1995todate.jpg that the peak is typically in the April or May months. Can you tell me whether that represents closing date, conditional sale date, listing date or something else? Trying to strategize our sale timing since we're a bit flexible.

Answer:

The peak of the market price is typically between the months of April and May of each year. This represents the sale price reported on TREB for that particular month. It does not account for conditional sales or the closing date, only the firm sale price that occurred during that particular month.

If, for example, a conditional sale was put together on April 5 and firmed up April 12th, the sale price would go towards April average.

 If a conditional sale was put together on April 25 and firmed up May 3rd, the sale price would go towards May average.

Best time to list is typically a week or two after the March break, then it takes 1-3 weeks to sell and you would sell at or near maximum and close typically about 3 months later. Most people like to close end of June or end of July due to children finishing school, and since most closings are between 60-90 days, this is another major reason that contributes to the March, April and May peak selling period.

Beware of the current cycle and where we currently are:

http://www.mississauga4sale.com/Market-Emotions-Cycle.htm

Please let me know if you have other questions.

Thank you,

Mark

Predictions for Toronto GTA and Mississauga Real Estate market in 2014

Predicting the future is not for everyone.

I only like to predict about 2 to 3 weeks into the future with any certainty. Anything beyond that becomes speculation based upon trends, current conditions and human sentiment. Thus, I can speculate for you for 2014.

It would appear that our real estate market is poised to have another positive year regarding prices and sales volumes.

Interest rates are low, inventories are generally low (except the condo market) and there continues to be pent-up demand for real estate in the GTA

I don't see our condo market softening too much more than it currently is. I believe we are in for another 'normal' year for real estate this year.

With that said, unless we see an improvement in the condo market around Square One, our local condominium marketplace could sag in the first quarter. We won't know the direction until about March or April.

The December results are not out and it was a 'normal' December, slow, but typical.

January 2014 (now) is not beginning with a boom, but it could also be the ice cold temperatures - we are all hoping for some improvement in the weather and the real estate market in the coming weeks!

See a graph of how the market performs throughout the year, up in spring, down in summer, up in fall, down in winter, but always on the upslope:

http://www.mississauga4sale.com/TREBavg1995date.htm

See this graph on how steep the increase has been of late:

Toronto Mississauga and GTA Real Estate Market in 2014

This is what we are anticipating and what I'm seeing for the real estate market in 2014















The December results are not out yet, but many are speculating it was a 'normal' December, the slowest month of the year, but typical. January 2014 (now) is not beginning with a boom, but it could also be the ice cold temperatures - we are all hoping for some improvement in the weather and the real estate market in the coming weeks and look for February to be one of the strongest months of the year to sell!

Our fall market did not perform as well as everyone expected. TREB and many financial people are predicting that prices will rise again in 2014, anywhere from 3 to 6% - only time will tell on this.

See a graph of how the market performs throughout the year, up in spring, down in summer, up in fall, down in winter, but always on the upslope:

http://www.mississauga4sale.com/TREBavg1995date.htm

See this graph on how steep the increase has been of late:

http://www.mississauga4sale.com/TREBprice.htm#graph

or just the graph:

http://www.mississauga4sale.com/avgprices.JPG

We anticipate that late January into February will be a very good time to sell as there will be low supply and higher demand, this should work well for sellers.

We will be working feverishly to market and promote your property as best as we can to take advantage of the marketplace and get it sold at the best price and terms possible.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or if there is anything else I can help you with.

Thank you,

Sherriff sales do they sell for market value or a deep discount?

I had a question about a Sherriff sale and thought I would share my answer
with you.

The question was:


Hi Mark

Can you tell me please if you are familiar with the properties that are sold
by the Sheriff when he home owners lose out to banks or credit card
companies in hard times.

Typically do such properties go for market value or is there a possibility
that they can be had for a steep discount.

Many Thanks

H.



My answer was:

This is a good question. A Sherriff sale is almost always sealed bidding,
so not too many details are known, except final winning bidder price.
Typically a Sherriff's sale will attract people from all over the area or
province.

If it's in a city, my understanding from speaking with people who have
attended recent Sherriff sales is that the properties sell for about what
they are worth, meaning at or near market value. Sherriff sales are
typically properties that are inaccessible, have structural, mould, fire or
other major problems or that the land is unusable because it is swamp or
inaccessible by road or any other type of major impairment that affects
market value.

If the Sherriff sale is for a 'regular' city type of property, as long as it
does not have any major deficiencies, then it will likely sell for about
market value. I would recommend that you attend a Sherriff sale to see the
dynamics and familiarize yourself with the process and to get a feel for
what happens at the sale.

I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!

All the Best!
