Our November Chestnut Park Market Report is out ! November finished strong but in a fractured fashion – not all markets were equal …

The City of Toronto (area code 416) continues to strengthen, following the market declines after the province’s announcement of the Ontario Fair Market Plan and in particular a 15 percent tax imposed on foreign buyers in […]

Our October Chestnut Park Real Estate Market Report is out! The market has rebounded – We now have an increase in supply for buyers, and steady but sustainable price increases for sellers!

The Toronto residential resale market returned to form in October. It returned to where it should have been before the frenzy set in at the beginning of this year and buyers began competing for properties indiscrimately and paying unreasonable prices.

Our March Market Report is Out – The Toronto market place continues to be shaped by global factors as much as local factors such as supply and low mortgage interest rates.

March residential resale numbers were staggering, in every category. More than 12,077 homes changed hands in March, up almost 18 percent compared to the 10,260 that were reported sold last year. In comparing 2017 against 2016 it must be remembered that 2016 smashed all records for residential resales. The most daunting statistic emerging for March’s data […]

Our October Chestnut Park Market Report is out! – The Seller’s market continues and how the new mortgage rules is affecting buyers…

In October the Federal Finance Minister implemented new “stress testing” for buyers looking for high ratio loans. A buyer seeking a high ratio loan normally has less than 20 percent of the purchase of the property. The new “stress testing” rules require borrowers to be qualified at banks’ posted rates, and not the discounted rates, […]

Our Market Report for August is out! The GTA average sale price continues to rise…and it doesn’t seem to be stopping. We need inventory!!

As we enter the traditional fall market, the big story in Toronto is inventory shortage. At the end of August there were only 9,949 residential properties available to buyers, a number only slightly higher than the 9,813 properties reported sold in August. This is a historic low. For the past few years it was the […]
