It is no secret that housing prices in the city have risen in recent months after a relatively short fall caused by the measures imposed by the government.
A new RE / MAX Canada report states that home sales in the 65 districts of the Toronto Real Estate Board increased by almost 88% between January and June 2019.
The prices of single-family homes have followed the example of the Toronto condominium market, capturing the attention of buyers who expect to get a great score on their real estate investments.
“First-time buyers and investors are choosing to insure real estate in Toronto before securities move again, especially in light of the stress test,” reads the RE / MAX report.
“The leader, when observing the percentage increase in the average price of single-family homes, is the east end of the city, which includes North Riverdale, South Riverdale, Blake-Jones and Greenwood-Coxwell (EO1). Here, the price average increased 15.2% to $ 1,378,987 “.
Trinity-Bellwoods, Palmerston-Little Italy, Niagara, Little Portugal, Kensington-Chinatown and Dufferin Grove together saw a 12.8% increase, compared to last year. Now it will cost you almost $ 2 million, on average, to buy a single-family house in any of those bells.
These are the top five fastest growing TREB districts in terms of independent housing prices at the moment:
E01: North Riverdale, South Riverdale, Blake-Jones and Greenwood-Coxwell, with a 15.2% increase, reaching a current average housing price of $ 1,378,987.
C01: Trinity-Bellwoods, Palmerston-Little Italy, Niagara, Little Portugal, Kensington-Chinatown and Dufferin Grove, with an increase of 12.8%. The average value of homes now stands at $ 1,953,511.
