The real estate market in the Greater Toronto Area had another banner year in 2015, with solid gains in prices, for both freehold properties and condominiums. Sellers of all housing types, including condos, enjoyed incredibly strong sales, with multiple offers and bidding wars becoming commonplace, and prices rose even higher than most experts were forecasting at the beginning of the year. So what are we to expect in 2016?
We believe that the fundamentals for continuation of the bull market in real estate are still in place. They are: 1.) low interest rates 2.) reasonable economic performance by the Canadian economy, with jobs being available for most job seekers 3.) continuing immigration into the GTA. Although there have been some minor increases in interest rates in the U.S., and there are currently rumblings of the same in Canada, we believe that, as 2016 is an election year for our American friends, there should be no major increases leading up to the big vote next fall. The Canadian government, also, seems willing to let the Canadian dollar fall vis a vis the U.S. dollar, so we do not expect major interest rate increases on this side of the border. As long as the three "pillars" of the market, mentioned above, remain in place, the local real estate market should continue its upward path. While there are never any guarantees in economic forecasting, the future nevertheless looks bright for real estate investing in Mississauga, the GTA, and indeed all of southern Ontario. Watch a video that I made, discussing these issues in greater detail here.
And here is the latest monthly update, as provided by the Toronto Real Estate Board:

How to Win Multiple Offers - Bidding Wars
Wondering how to purchase property in Toronto? Multiple Offers and Bidding Wars have become a fact of life when buying a resale home or condo in the Greater Toronto Real Estate market, and have indeed become commonplace in many of Canada's major cities. Stories of homes selling for $50,000, $70,000, and even $100,000 over the asking price are no longer found just in downtown Toronto and Vancouver, with bidding wars happening also in suburban areas such as Mississauga, Oakville, and Richmond Hill. Are you wondering, what is a "Bully" Offer? If you are a Buyer, how can you increase your chances of winning when forced to bid against others? If you are a seller, what are the bidding war rules? This article is based on real-world experience in buying and selling many homes in the Greater Toronto Area, and although the terms and procedures reflect the Canadian real estate system, the house bidding strategy we teach can apply anywhere where there are multiple offers and real estate bidding wars.

The first step in preparing for the sale of your home is to prepare it so that it shows at its very best. The real estate industry has proven in many studies that professionally staged homes sell faster, and sometimes for more money, than those homes which have not been prepared for sale...Here are 24 Professional Home Staging Tips that you can do yourself, for little or no money. These techniques can help you to increase your home's likelihood of selling, how quickly it sells, and the dollar amount that you get.
1.) FIX SMALL NEEDED REPAIRS
Any small deficiencies can damage the attractiveness of your home to the potential buyer. A leaking bathroom faucet, a door bell that doesn't work, or peeling paint in the kitchen may seem like minor problems, but these minor problems can cause the buyer to think that there may be bigger problems that are hidden. That is why these small issues should be either fixed, covered over, or replaced. Any signs of owner neglect must be done away with. These items are easy to overlook, so make sure you inspect your home thoroughly with an impartial eye. The best thing about these small repairs is that they are relatively inexpensive, and often you can do them yourself in very little time. Read more on how to stage a house...

Marilyn Monroe Condo
Absolute World Towers
have redefined the Mississauga Skyline
The "Marilyn Monroe" condos, as they are popularly known today, can trace their origins back to November 28, 2006, when at annual Mississauga Urban Design Awards, Mayor Hazel McCallion announced that an international competition would be held for the design of the 4th tower at the Absolute World Mississauga condo development. Located at the north-east corner of Burnhamthorpe Rd. and Hurontario St. in Mississauga, the 3 previous buildings in the Absolute project had already been successfully sold to the public, with tradional designs, but it was felt that something special was needed for the landmark 4th tower, which was planned to be as high as 56 storeys.
