It’s been a wild ride for the real estate market in the Greater Toronto Area in 2018, with government intervention and rising interest rates having a growing influence on affordability, and on both buyers’ and sellers’ psychologies. The Ontario government’s Fair Housing initiative, which was rolled out in April 2017, had a noticeable effect throughout 2018. This plan included a 15% foreign buyer tax, which effectively killed foreign buyer demand. The market has cooled. Adding to the mix, the federal government did its best to reign in the market by raising interest rates three times, and then, by implementing a banking “stress test” which made qualifying for a mortgage more difficult by a factor of about 20%. End result? We had a market in 2018 that was decidedly mixed, with something we haven’t seen for a long time- falling prices in detached homes, where prices dropped by more than 4%. Condos, however, remained resilient, rising nearly 8%, probably due to their relative affordability rather than anything else. Here are some year end MLS statistics, as provided by the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB):
– total 2018 real estate sales: 77,426, down 16.1% from 2017
– average selling price for all types of property: $787,300, which is down 4.3% from 2017
– TREB’s composite benchmark price index: up 2.9% from 2017
– average selling price for a detached house: $945,580 (down 4.5%)
– average selling price for a condo apartment: $554,497 (up 7.8%)
– yearly average selling price all types: $705,785
– December average selling price for detached: $1,033,209
– December average selling price for condo apartment: $427,560
So where are we headed? Will the boom times come back, or are we at the beginning of a long correction?
Our federal and provincial governments are doing their best to cool off the market, and it seems to be working. They have attacked the “demand” side of the supply/demand imbalance, rather than finding ways to increase the supply. As we look at 2019, there will be a tug of war between these government initiatives to kill demand, and the underlying fundamentals of the market, which remain positive.
We must not forget that the three fundamentals which have been driving our local real estate market are still in place. They are:
1.) low-interest rates *though rising, still low by historic standards*
2.) excellent economic performance of GTA economy, which has been a powerhouse for creating high paying jobs
3.) continuing massive immigration into the region
The biggest problem will be affordability during the coming year. The new banking stress test will force many people out of the market for more expensive properties. Based on this and other factors, we believe that there will be a sideways market for detached homes in 2019. Due to their lower price point and relative affordability, we are predicting continued strength and modest price gains in the condo market.
So here’s to 2019! We continue to monitor the Toronto and Mississauga real estate market on a daily basis, and remain cautiously optimistic towards the coming year.

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 my real-world experience as a real estate agent 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. How to Win Multiple Offers & Bidding Wars

Stage Your House – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires
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 doorbell 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 home staging…
