Slump to be short-lived, agency says

The recent downturn in Toronto’s real estate market, brought on after Ontario introduced measures this Spring, including a foreign Buyers’ tax, is expected to be brief, the federal housing agency said Wednesday.

Property prices in the city which fell from an average of $919,589 in April to $793,915 last month, according to date from the Toronto Real Estate Board, should pick up again due to supply constraints & a good economy, Canada Mortgage & Housing Corp. said.

The provincial government’s measures, retroactive to April 21, include a 15% tax on foreign Buyers in the Greater Golden Horseshoe region, expanded rent controls & legislation allowing Toronto & other cities to tax vacant homes.

“If job creation continues in Toronto, & the economy continues to fuel the housing demand, we can expect some of the pressures on house prices in Toronto to resume,” said Bob Dugan, CMHC’s chief economist.

HOW REAL ESTATE MARKET CONDITIONS AFFECT YOUR OFFER PRICELOCATION, LOCATION.... MARKETING!
A hot market is a "sellerís market". During a sellerís market, properties can sell within a few days of being listed and there are often multiple offers. Sometimes homes even sell above the asking price. Though most buyers want to get a "deal" on a home, reducing your offer by even a few thousand dollars could mean that someone else will get the home you desire.You may have lived in your home for many years. The location factors that you considered when making your purchase decision may not apply to todayís buyers. The task is to identify the current positive aspects of your homeís location and market them aggressively. When it comes to positive locations, peopleís different attitudes and preferences will determine if a location is a ďgoodĒ one.
