Near Record Sales in 2014

January 7, 2015 -- Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 92,867 residential sales through the TorontoMLS system in 2014, including 4,446 in December. The calendar year 2014 sales result represented a 6.7 per cent increase over the 2013 sales figure of 87,049 and was just short of the record set in 2007.


"TREB's 2014 sales figures are a testament to the importance Greater Toronto Area households continue to place on home ownership. GTA households realize that home purchases have been a quality long-term investment. While home prices certainly increased substantially in 2014, the purchase of an average priced home remained affordable, in terms of the average household's ability to comfortably cover their monthly mortgage payments," said Mr. Etherington.

"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 continued to grow on a year-over-year basis in calendar year 2014, with an 8.4 per cent increase over calendar year 2013 to $566,726. This included a seven per cent increase in the December 2014 average selling price to $556,602. Throughout 2014, annual increases in the average selling price and the MLS® HPI Composite Benchmark were consistently reported on a monthly basis for most market segments, from detached homes through to condominium apartments.

"The strong price growth we experienced in 2014 can be explained with two words: listings shortage. The constrained supply of listings was especially evident for low-rise home types like singles, semis and town houses. The number of households looking to purchase these home types increased, while the number of homes from which they could choose decreased. This situation resulted in more competition between buyers and more aggressive offers," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Director of Market Analysis.

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.

Toronto Real Estate Board regarding sales of single family residential properties in September 2014

Hello from Fabulous Mississauga!

This is the latest report from the Toronto Real Estate Board regarding sales of single family residential properties last month

Average price was $573,676 up 7.7%
Number of units sold was up to 8,051 about a 10% increase compared to September last year

The full report is below

Sales and Average Price Growth Continued in September

TORONTO, October 3, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that there were 8,051 transactions reported through the TorontoMLS system in September 2014. This result represented a 10.9 per cent increase compared to September 2013. On a year-to-date basis through the first three  quarters of the year, sales were up by 6.9 per cent annually to 73,465.

"Despite a persistent shortage of listings in some market segments, we have experienced strong growth in sales though the first nine months of 2014.

This is evidence that GTA households remain upbeat about purchasing a home. The majority of home buyers purchase a home using a mortgage. The share of the average household's income dedicated to their mortgage payment remains affordable, which is why buyer interest has remained solid," said Mr. Etherington.

The average selling price for September 2014 transactions was $573,676 – up by 7.7 per cent compared to the same period in 2013. Average year-over-year price growth was strongest in the City of Toronto, both for low-rise home types like detached and semidetached houses and for condominium apartments.

The average selling price year-todate was $563,813 – up 8.5 per cent compared to the first nine months of 2013.

"If the current pace of sales growth remains in place, we could be flirting with a new record for residential sales reported by TREB Members this year. On the pricing front, the multitude of willing buyers in the marketplace coupled with the short supply of listings will continue to translate into very strong annual rates of price growth in the fourth quarter," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Director of Market Analysis.

Toronto Real Estate Board September report for August 2014 Real Estate Sales results


Good Morning, 

Below is the press release from the Toronto Real Estate Board for the last months sales results

If you wish to see the actual figures, please browse to this page:

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


TORONTO, September 4, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington reported 7,600 sales through the TorontoMLS system in August 2014. This result was up by 2.8 per cent compared to 7,391 transactions reported in August 2013. Year-to-date sales through the end of August amounted to 65,454, which represented an increase of 6.5 per cent compared to the same period in 2013.

“The last full month of summer ended on a high note. As we look toward the fall market, I expect that demand for ownership housing will remain strong. Home buyers will continue to benefit from a diversity of affordable home ownership opportunities throughout the GTA. The fact that sales were up for all major
home types in August suggests that first-time buyers and existing home owners remain very active in today’s marketplace,” said Mr. Etherington.

The average selling price in August 2014 was $546,303 – up 8.9 per cent in comparison to the average of $501,677 reported in August 2013. The year-to-date average price through August was $562,504, which represented an increase of 8.5 per cent in comparison to the same period in 2013.

“The number of listings in August was down in comparison to last year, while the number of sales increased. This means that sellers’ market conditions remained in place with a lot of competition between buyers. This is why we continued to see strong price growth last month. Looking forward, if sales growth
continues to outstrip listings growth, the average selling price should continue to increase on a year-overyear basis,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.

Toronto Real Estate Board Report for June 2014 Sale Price UP and sales volumes up!

The latest report from the Toronto Real Estate Board for June 2014 is out, Sales price up and sales volumes up!

Average price of $540,544 - up 8.3% compared to May of last year

Sales Volume of 11,079 - up 11.4% compared to May of last year

See the full report below,
Mark


Tight Market Conditions Prompt Strong Price Growth

Sales and Average Price Up last month

TORONTO, June 4, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher announced that both the number of home sales through the TorontoMLS system and the average selling price were up strongly in May compared to a year ago.

Total TorontoMLS sales for May 2014 amounted to 11,079 – a new high for the month of May. This result was up by 11.4 per cent compared to 9,946 sales reported in May 2013.

The average selling price for these sales was $585,204, representing an 8.3 per cent year-over-year increase compared to the average price of $540,544 in May 2013.

“We are now at the peak of the spring market when we generally see the greatest number of sales and the highest average selling prices. Based on the May statistics, buyers have been more active this spring compared to last year.

Despite strong price growth so far in 2014, many households remain comfortable with the monthly mortgage payments associated with the purchase of a home, as borrowing costs have remained at or near record lows over the past few months,” said Ms. Usher.

Average selling prices varied across the Greater Toronto Area, depending on geography and home type. A detached home in the City of Toronto sold, on average, for $943,055. In the surrounding GTA regions, the average detached price was $648,439. The average price for condominium apartments was $401,809 in the City of Toronto and $307,307 in the surrounding regions.

“The listings situation in the GTA did not improve this past May. With listings down and sales up compared to last year, competition between buyers increased. The result was price growth well above the rate of inflation, especially for singles, semis and townhomes,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

“It is also important to point out that even though the condo apartment market segment remains comparatively well-supplied, as new project completions have generally led to an uptick in listings, we have seen enough buyer interest to prompt strong condo price growth as well,”

TREB reported March 2014 single family residential home sales in Toronto and the GTA Sales and Average Price Up in March

TREB reported March 2014 single family residential home sales in Toronto and the GTA

Sales and Average Price Up in March
 
TORONTO, April 3, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported strong year-over-year increases in TorontoMLS home sales and the average selling price in March 2014. Home ownership affordability, backstopped by low borrowing costs, continued to be a key factor underlying this growth.
 
A total of 8,081 sales were reported in March 2014 – up by 7.2 per cent in comparison to March 2013. Sales growth was much stronger in March compared to the first two months of the first quarter. Sales for Q1 as a whole were up by three per cent compared to the first three months of 2013.
 
“Sales activity in the GTA accelerated last month. Compared to last year, a greater number of buyers found affordable home ownership options, as evidenced by sales growth for all major home types. Against this backdrop, however, overall inventory at the end of March remained lower than last year. This means competition between buyers increased, which is why the average selling price continued to climb,” said Ms. Usher.
 
The average selling price for March 2014 sales was $557,684 – an increase of almost eight per cent compared to the average reported for March 2013. The average price for the first quarter of 2014 was up by 8.5 per cent year-over-year.
 
“With borrowing costs remaining low, and in fact declining, strong home ownership demand will continue to butt up against a constrained supply of listings. Strong price growth will be the result for the remainder of 2014. If the pace of price growth experienced in the first quarter is sustained, TREB may revise its outlook for the average selling price,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.
 
 
I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!

GREATER TORONTO REALTORS® REPORT LATEST MONTLY RESALE HOUSING MARKET FIGURES
 
TORONTO, March 5, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher announced that February 2014 home sales reported by Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® were up by 2.1 per cent compared to the same period last year. Total February sales amounted to 5,731 compared to 5,613 last year.
 
“Despite the continuation of inclement weather in February, we did see a moderate uptick in sales activity last month. The sales increase was largely driven by resale condominium apartments. New listings of resale condominium apartments were up on a year-over-year basis, giving buyers ample choice. This is in contrast to the listings situation for singles, semis and townhomes, where supply continued to be constrained. Some would-be buyers had difficulty finding a home that met their needs,” said Ms. Usher.
 
“If we see renewed growth in listings for low-rise home types, the pace of sales growth will accelerate as we move through the year,” Ms. Usher continued.
 
The average selling price for February 2014 sales was up by 8.6 per cent to $553,193, compared to the average of $509,396 reported for February 2013. The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Composite Benchmark was up by 7.3 per cent year-over-year.
 
“While the strong price growth experienced over the last year should prompt an improvement in the supply of listings, sellers’ market conditions will continue to prevail this year. Home prices, on average, will trend upwards at a pace well-above the rate of inflation. The impact of strong price growth on affordability will be mitigated by low borrowing costs,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

February Report Residential Real Estate Market in the GTA TREB report for January 2014

GREATER TORONTO REALTORS® REPORT LATEST MONTLY RESALE MARKET FIGURES
 
TORONTO, February 5, 2014 –
 
Home ownership in the Greater Toronto Area remains affordable and there are many people looking to purchase a home.
 
In January, the number of homes listed for sale was down quite strongly compared to last year, which means that it was difficult for some buyers to find a home.
 
Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,135 sales through the TorontoMLS system in January 2014. This result was down by 2.2 per cent in comparison to January 2013. New listings entered into the system were down over the same period by 16.6 per cent to 8,822.
 
“Looking forward, it is possible that strong price growth, and therefore an increase in home equity, will act as a trigger for more households to list their homes for sale. This is especially the case for households whose life styles are changing, including those with an expanding family looking for a larger home or empty nesters looking to downsize,” said Dianne Usher, President, Toronto Real Estate Board.
 
The average selling price for January 2014 sales was $526,528 – up by more than nine per cent compared to $482,080 in January 2013.
 
“The pace of price growth will remain strong in 2014. Similar to last year, competition between buyers for singles, semis and town homes in the City of Toronto and surrounding regions will continue to exert upward pressure on selling prices. At the same time, mortgage rates will remain near historic lows, so despite strong price growth, home ownership will remain affordable for the average household in the GTA,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.
 
 
I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!

GTA REALTORS(r) RELEASE MID-MONTH RESALE HOUSING FIGURES

TORONTO, January 17, 2014 -



Greater Toronto Area REALTORS(r) reported 1,287 transactions through the TorontoMLS system during the first two weeks of 2014. This result was down by approximately eight per cent compared to 1,396 sales reported during the same period in 2013.

New listings entered into the system were down by a greater 20 per cent year-over-year.

"The expectation is that home sales through the TorontoMLS System will be up in 2014. This is because the cost of purchasing an average priced home, including mortgage payments, property taxes and utilities, will remain affordable for a household earning the average income in the GTA," said Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher.

"Aside from the fact that January sales from year-to-year tend to be volatile, the dip in sales during the first two weeks in January was likely due in large part to a lack of new listings. Quite simply, some would be home buyers could not find a home that met their needs," continued Ms. Usher.

The average selling price for the first 14 days of January 2014 was $515,990 - up by 12 per cent compared to the average price reported for the same timeframe in 2013.

"The average selling price in the GTA will continue to trend upward in 2014.

Listings will remain below the pre-recession peak and sales are expected to increase over 2013. This means that we will continue to see substantial competition between buyers for some home types and in some areas of the GTA," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!

All the Best!

TREB Real Estate Report for 2013 Final Figures

Below is the latest release of figures for December 2013 and finalizes the figures for averages for 2013


Our market was off to a slow start last year due to an uneasy economic outlook and the fiscal cliff drama in the USA.

We recovered from the slow start and 2013 ended up being a good year for sales and prices in the GTA.

See more at this page about average prices and read the press release below.

Thanks!

GTA REALTORS(r) Report Monthly Resale Housing Market Figures


TORONTO, January 6, 2014 - Greater Toronto Area REALTORS(r) reported 4,078 residential transactions through the TorontoMLS system in December 2013 - up by almost 14 per cent compared to 3,582 sales reported in December 2012. New listings entered into the TorontoMLS system were down by almost four per cent over the same period.

Total sales for calendar year 2013, at 87,111, were up by approximately two per cent compared to 85,496 transactions in calendar year 2012.

"After a slow start to the year, sales growth accelerated to a brisk pace in the second half of 2013. Despite the inclement weather in December, we finished the year with a respectable gain in transactions compared to 2012.

Looking forward, I believe that home ownership in the GTA will remain affordable as borrowing costs stay low. The result could be a further increase in sales in 2014," said Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher.

"The average selling price will be up again in 2014 and by more than the rate of inflation. The seller's market conditions that drove price growth in the second half of 2013 will remain in place in many parts of the GTA. Some neighbourhoods, especially those characterized by low-rise home types like singles, semis and townhomes, will continue to have less than two months of inventory," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

The average selling price for December 2013 sales was $520,398 - up by 8.9 per cent compared to the average of $477,756 in December 2012.

The average selling price for 2013 as a whole was $523,036, which represented an increase of 5.2 per cent compared to the calendar year 2012 average of $497,130.


I hope this finds you Happy and Healthy!

All the Best!

House Price Trends in Mississauga and Toronto GTA

Hello from beautiful Mississauga!

House prices will very likely increase in the next 12 months.  All things being equal and similar to previous years in real estate, the market should increase between March and June by about 3% to 7%

You can see the seasonal increases at this link:

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

We expect this spring market to increase by about the same as previous year increases.

We do not see mortgage interest rates increasing for at least a year, maybe another 18 months, the mortgage market is soft and the economy would not be able to absorb a sudden increase in rates.

I don't think you should ever delay your house purchase decision, unless you have a very good reason to do so. The sooner you get into the real estate market, the more money you will be putting towards your mortgage principal and paying down your mortgage, you will be increasing your equity and the less money you will waste spending on rent.

Benefits to home ownership:

I hope this helps.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or require further information.

Thank you,

Mark

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,

Mark
