The Buyer’s Market


Well, Urbaneer predicted we’d soon see the media begin their alarmist woes about the Toronto real estate market.  In today’s Globe and Mail Business Section columnist Michael Babad cites BMO’s Nesbitt Burns on the transitioning market and move towards it being a ‘Buyer’s Market’. Especially with respect to condos. Have you heard this before? If you’ve been following our posts at Urbaneer, you know we’ve been advising buyers to be increasingly discerning in what they purchase.

Did you read our Summer Forecast Part 1 and Part 2?

And here was our most recent Tales From The Trenches posted just eight days ago.

Sure, by our accounts demand for condominiums is beginning to wane. Those sellers who are the most aggressive with their price and have qualities not found in the more ubiquitous high-rise towers are garnering offers, so it’s not entirely gloom and doom. And if you own a house, the demand remains strong in the market under $1million.

It’s also important to point out that prices are up 8.5% from last year. So perhaps it’s time to see some rebalancing, as that’s a hefty annual increase doncha think?

Regardless, for the most savvy of buyers there are opportunities to be had. It just requires a little patience seeking out the highly motivated seller on one hand, and having your cheque book in the other ready to negotiate and close the deal.
