November 2018 Market Review

The Toronto real estate market had a slow-ish November, with sales volume dropping 14.7%, from 7,326 in November 2017 to 6,251 last month. At the same time, the number of new listings dropped 26.1%, from 14,260 to just 10,534, and the total number of listings...

October 2018 Market Review

October was another solid month in the Toronto real estate market. TREB reported 7,492 sales, up 6% from October 2017. The average sale price (across all home types) edged up 3%, to $807,340. As I mentioned last month, prices have been relatively stable over the last...

September 2018 Market Review

September was a decent month for real estate in Toronto. TREB reported 6,455 sales, up 1.9% over September 2017. I'd call that basically flat (i.e. stable). The average sale price hit $796,786, which was up 2.9% year-over-year. That basically the same as the inflation rate (the August...

Summer 2018 Market Review

The summer months are usually relatively quiet in the Toronto real estate market. There are some obvious reasons for that - people change gears and shift their attention to fun activities, and lots of folks take every opportunity to get out of the city. That...

New listing: 45 Gainsborough Rd – big 3 + 1 semi **SOLD!!**

Located near Gerrard and Coxwell's Little India (AKA India Bazaar), Gainsborough Rd is a pleasant, tree-lined street of mostly semi-detached homes. Number 45, renovated a few years ago, is near the bottom of the street, just south of Eastwood Ave and just a few doors...

June 2018 Market Review

For most of 2018 so far, it has appeared that the Toronto real estate market has been 'down'. All along, I've been saying that it only looks that way because of the crazy price spike that occurred in the first few months of 2017, and...

4 Brookridge Dr. **SOLD!!**

Midland Park is a gorgeous neighbourhood of mid-century modern homes built in the late 50s-early 60s. Many existing trees were left intact, and the housing was designed and built to fit the landscape. Today, it's a quiet, leafy community of wide, winding streets, tall trees...

May 2018 Market Review

The Toronto Real Estate Board reported 7,834 sales in May 2018, 22.2% fewer than May 2017. There were 19,022 new listings posted to the Board, 26.2% fewer than the same month last year. Despite fewer new listings, the total number of available listings increased by 13.2%,...

April 2018 Market Review

TREB reported 7,792 sales last month, a drop in volume of 32.1% from April 2017. The average sale price was down 12.4%, but keep in mind that at this time last year the market was still showing the effects of that massive price spike. April 2017...

March 2018 Market Review

Well, the TREB stats are out for March, and so are the breathless headlines! I was going to comment on a few of them, but the thought gave me a headache. ;) While sales volume fell significantly year-over-year (down about 40%), one has to remember that...
