ABOUT THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
Total Sales For 2012 Amounted To 85,731 – Down From 89,096 Transactions In 2011.
Strong Year Over Year Growth In First Half Of Year
Sales Decline in Second Half Of Year
CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation)
Stricter Mortgage Lending Guidelines
This Pushed Some Home Buyers Out Of The Market
Additional Land Transfer Tax in Toronto Also Played A Role
The Average Selling Price For 2012 As A Whole Was Up By Almost 7% to $497,298.
Strongest Growth In Low Rise Homes (Detached, Semis, and Townhouses)
Despite Dip In Sales, Market Conditions Remained Tight
WHAT ABOUT THE CONDO MARKET?
Sales Were Down, Prices Were Up (Slightly)
Total Sales For 2012 Amounted To 19,833 – Down From 22,265 Transactions In 2011
The Average Selling Price For 2012 As A Whole Was Up By Just Over 1.5% to $335,945
The condominium apartment market was the best supplied market segment in 2012
Strong condo apartment completions in 2011 and the first few months of 2012 resulted in a substantial number of new listings on the Toronto MLS system last year
With more units for buyers to choose from, the annual rate of price growth moderated
Purchasing A Studio Unit At Paintbox
Renting A Studio Unit At Paintbox
At Today's Interest Rate, Purchase Price, and Rental Rates
First year net payout is more.
By the time the second year comes around, buying already works out to be more favorable than renting based on today's interest rates and appreciation.
The longer you stay in your home, the better to justify that buying makes more sense than renting as shown in the overall chart.
Everyone needs a roof over their head in the long term, if the individual can afford the expenses, buying is a great investment!
There are currently more than 3400 condos listed on the MLS right now, and about 1/3 are in Downtown Toronto
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
With more condos to choose from, and prices moderating, it's a good time to be a buyer
