October Bustle

November 14, 2017

October 2017 -  October Bustle - The New Street Resale Real Estate Report for The Greater Toronto and Hamilton Region

The recent mortgage regulation changes announced by the Federal Government has had an impact on sales activity in October with the number of homes sold rising 12% based on TREB's (Toronto) MLS System® and 33% based on RAHB's (Hamilton-Burlington) MLS System®. There wasn't much movement in the average home price throughout the GTA & Hamilton in October from September. Prices in both regions were up  by 2.3% and 7.8% respectively, from the previous year.

GTA & Hamilton Home Prices - Last 12 Months

Following the recent "mortgage stress test" announcement, it seems home sales have picked up significantly. The Region of Hamilton & Burlington MLS® System saw a 33.1% jump in the number of sales in October, from the previous month. Toronto Real Estate Board® measured a similar trend with the volume of sales up 11.6% from September. Two other important positive factors are evident in the stats below. Both average days on market and new listings were down from the previous month on both MLS systems. This means that homes are selling faster on average with less homes being listed for sale in October.

GTA & Hamilton Homes Sales Stats – October 2017

Looking at the stats below from TREB's MLS System® , I guess you can say the last 12 months have seen "The Rise of the Condo" and "The Death of the Detached Home". Perhaps that's an exaggerated (and catchy) news headline but there is some truth to it. The average price of a condo continued to grow in October, up 21.8% from last year meanwhile detached home prices were down (yes down) by 2.5% from October of 2016. Keep in mind that the detached home market was peaking this time last year so this drop is simply a balance in the market. With the average price of a detached home in the GTA still above $1Million, the segment is far from dead.

GTA Sales & Average Price by Home Type -  October 2017

The increase in the sales volume was mainly driven by the condominium segment in the Hamilton-Burlington area which saw a 91% jump in sales activity from September. Both freehold and condos prices were up from last year, with the freehold market leading the way with a 11.4% average price increase.

Averge prices saw a double-digit jump in Burlington, Flamborough, Hamilton Centre, Waterdown and Glanbrook from October 2016. See map below for more details.

With the mortgage stress-test coming in January, it's hard to tell what the market has in store for 2018. For now, it seems things are active and healthy as we head into the winter months. Opinions are my own and should not be taken as advice. Data Compiled by New Street from TREB (Toronto Real Estate Board) and RAHB (Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington).
