So far 2020 has been a tumultuous year. What started out as a continuation of the great boom came to a screeching halt in mid-March. The COVID-19 pandemic forced governments around the world to enforce a general lockdown, businesses were closed, people were obliged to stay at home, and real estate sales plummeted. After the initial shock wore off, new procedures and protocols were put in place, and sales recovered somewhat. To everyone’s surprise, real estate prices in the Greater Toronto Area have stayed relatively firm. So what should we expect for the balance of the year?
Our federal, provincial, and civic governments are doing their best to limit the spread of the coronavirus, but the effect on our local economy has been profound. The business of real estate has had many restrictions placed on it, such as the elimination of public open houses, and the protocols that we realtors follow have seen many changes. The rise of offers based on virtual tours, conditional on actually seeing the house in person, is just one example.
We must not forget that the three fundamentals which have been driving our local real estate market were still in place, just a few short weeks ago:
1.) low-interest rates
2.) excellent economic performance of GTA economy, which has been a powerhouse for creating high paying jobs
3.) continuing massive immigration into the region
While interest rates worldwide will remain very low, and will even approach zero in some instances, the second fundamental, that of a booming local economy, is at risk, at least in the short term. There is a definite possibility of a recession both in Canada and across the world, as the after effects of layoffs and store closings linger. As for immigration, that too will be tempered by weakness in the local economy, as well as disruptions in air travel.
We are in uncharted territory here in 2020. The global pandemic that is COVID-19 poses two threats to the world. The first threat is medical. This everyone can relate to. The second threat is economic. The verdict on this is still out, but I think it is fair to say that it will take some considerable time to fully recover. There have been layoffs across multiple industries worldwide, there have been factory closures and the general shutdown of air travel, and entire industries such as travel and tourism, professional sports, and entertainment have been deeply affected. Where we stand today in Ontario, after a period of complete lockdown, is that things are slowly returning to normal, with the various “Stages” of reopening gradually allowing more and more commercial and recreational activities to take place.
2020 has brought risk to the real estate market, although there may be opportunities down the road. We will continue to monitor the Toronto and Mississauga real estate market on a daily basis, and will keep you posted on developments as they happen.

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 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
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…
