Toronto Real Estate Housing Market Update Oct 2022

Despite another rate hike from the Bank of Canada, activity remained similar to last month with 4,961 sales taking place, and homes available for sale staying around the 13,000 mark. This low number of available homes helped keep the average price stable, more or less flat for the last three months.

Note: This is still 9.9% higher than the end of 2021.

The Bank of Canada’s most recent messaging suggests they are reaching the end of their tightening strategy and bond yields dipped. As a result, fixed mortgage rates may trend lower moving forward which would help affordability and thus sales.

While this seems like good news, I must admit, it makes me nervous. There are so few homes for sale, any kind of small uptick in demand could lead to a repeat of rapid price increases as we have experienced earlier this year. Despite the economic uncertainty, the inventory shortage coupled with continuing strong demand for housing could cause a quick rebound to a hot market.

This is a complicated and somewhat unpredictable real estate market. Yet, it is an ideal time for those looking to benefit as up-sizers or investors

While everyone’s circumstances, wants and needs differ, for most, sitting on the sidelines and waiting is a mistake. If you’re not sure, or if you know of someone who needs to talk about their situation, please give me a call, I’ll be happy to consult objectively! Let’s assess together when the right time is to move forward. My role is not to make a sale, it’s to address any real estate uncertainty you may have and propose your next steps. That may result in a recommendation of “do nothing”.

Regardless of your needs, it's important that you work with a strong, experienced realtor and a worldwide brand that can help you navigate and make great decisions in this market. Take advantage of my combined experience of 17 years in real-estate and 4 decades as a business owner. Give me a call and let’s talk because after all, I am Your Point Man in Real Estate and I am here to Make a Difference For You!
