Our Take on The Market for Todays Buyers -November 2017

As you may know,

the banks will be introducing new lending rules in January 2018. Buyers with under 20% down have been qualified under these rules for some time already. What this means is that buyers will have to qualify at 2% higher than the benchmark rate. They will still loan at the benchmark rate. The talk seems to say that buyers will qualify for about 17% less. There is a lot of speculation in our industry that prices will adjust downward. This remains to be seen and may take until March April and beyond to take effect.


If this is true it is good news for buyers with good incomes. Opportunity to buy at lower prices than the last couple of years.

Quoted in an essay by unknown "For me happiness starts from my home and ends at my home." Well , why is that?

The main reason we ask is to find out from the home seller why they have loved living there . What is their story? For a home buyer this can be important information.…

 Etobicoke Housing Deck

Etobicoke is our focus, of course when we analyze the Economics reports from the Banks. The most recent are from Scotiabank and its VP Derek Holt.

Canada vs the International market shows that we are not overvalued yet but we are expensive. But not to Americans or the US dollar investors. To the Global market, Canada still looks like a good place to live not just invest.

As this relates to us in Etobicoke with its easy access to the Airport and Downtown of the largest city in Canada both economically and growth wise we are in a very positive positioning.  What's happening currently we have an increase of listings in TORONTO but once this dissipates (due to spring market) I think we will be back to it.
