Imagine you've been waiting for the right moment to sell your home and you're finally ready to pull the trigger and list it. But, just as you're about to put up the sign, you notice that a few other FOR SALE signs have unexpectedly popped up in the neighbourhood.

Oh no! Now there are competing listings. Does that mean you should put your plan to sell your property on hold?

Not necessarily.

Just because comparable homes are for sale in the area doesn't mean it's not a good time to make your move. In fact, even if there is a sharp increase in local listings, active buyers might still outnumber properties available.

In that scenario, you'd likely get several interested buyers.

And, even in the case of a buyer's market, now might still be the ideal time to sell.
Don't forget, your home might have desirable features that some buyers are eagerly looking for, giving your home the advantage over others on the market.

In addition, a large part of a successful sale is in how a property is marketed and promoted. With effective marketing, your home is more likely to be noticed by the right type of buyers... buyers who are actively looking for a property like yours.

So, waiting for the perfect moment to sell your home rarely makes sense. In most cases, the best time to list is now.

That being said, it is helpful to find out exactly what to expect should you list your property in today's market. To find that out, call today.

Toronto and Vancouver luxury condo market bolstered by local buyers, downsizing retirees and Millennials

Single-detached luxury homes sales in the $3+ million range in Toronto and Vancouver drop by 44% and 45%

Sales of single-detached homes priced $1-2 million have declined in Toronto and Vancouver, down 35 per cent year-over-year, according to the 2018 RE/MAX Spotlight on Luxury Report. In contrast, the luxury condo market in the $1-2 million range remains popular, particularly in larger urban centres. Toronto experienced a two-per-cent increase in luxury condo sales, while Vancouver sales were up six per cent and Victoria luxury condo sales increased 19 per cent. These trends have been largely driven by Baby Boomers and Millennials.

“Many Canadian Baby Boomers saw the strength of the real estate market over the past two years as an opportunity to cash-in, downsize and upgrade into the luxury market for retirement,” says Christopher Alexander, Executive Vice President and Regional Director, RE/MAX INTEGRA Ontario-Atlantic Canada Region.

 “We’re also seeing an emerging trend of Millennials entering the lower end of the luxury condo market, as they tap into their inheritance to invest in this popular property segment.” 

While the luxury condo market soars, single-detached activity in Toronto and Vancouver continues to be impacted by the foreign buyer’s tax. Year-over-year single-detached sales in the $1-3 million range were down 37 per cent in Toronto and 31 per cent in Vancouver.

“The foreign buyer’s tax has impacted overseas activity, opening more opportunities for local buyers to enter the luxury market,” says Elton Ash, Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada. “As a result, local buyers are driving demand for luxury condos going into 2019, which is welcome news for developers in major city centres looking to build more properties.”

Canada’s condo hot spots of Toronto and Vancouver saw year-over-year increases in most expensive condo units on the market. In Toronto, the priciest condo sold for $11.5 million in 2018, up from $8 million in 2017 (+44 per cent). Meanwhile in Vancouver, the most expensive condo sold for $11.7 million, up from $8.7 million in 2017 (+34 per cent). In comparison, year-over-year declines in highest selling price of a condo were seen in Calgary (-53 per cent), Victoria (-47 per cent) and Oakville (-18 per cent).

 Other Key Findings:

  • In Vancouver, single-detached homes and condos in the $3+ million range decreased year-over-year by 45 per cent year and 13 per cent.
  • In Toronto, single-detached homes in the $3+ million range decreased year-over-year by 44 per cent, while condo sales remain unchanged.
  • In Oakville, both luxury home and condo sales in the $1-2 million price range decreased by 30 per cent and 14 per cent, respectively, thanks in part to lower inventory levels.
  • In Victoria, condos in the $1-2 million range experienced a 19 per cent increase year-over-year and condos in the $2-3 million range experienced a 67 per cent increase year-over-year. However, condos priced $3 million+ experienced a decline of 40 per cent.
