“We saw a trend of low supply this time last year,” said Dennis Horton, 2017 President of OMDREB. “We’re continuing to see more listings hit the market, so it’ll be interesting to see how October unfolds.”

The Toronto Real Estate Board is also reporting a decline in GTA sales, and showed an increase in GTA prices of 2.6 percent to $775,546 from September 2016 to September 2017. The total number of GTA sales in September 2017 was 6,379, a decline of 35.1 percent.

  3. Townhouse: 15.68%
  4. Condo Apartment: 18.32%

“Consumer polling undertaken for TREB in the spring suggested that buying intentions over the next year remain strong. As we move through the fourth quarter we could see some buyers moving off the sidelines, taking advantage of a better-supplied marketplace,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Tim Syrianos.

Average days that it took to sell a detached home was 28, semi-detached: 17, condo-townhouse: 25, condo-apartment: 29, and Attached/Row/Townhouse: 29. With this increase in the number of days it takes to sell a property, there is also an increase in the number of properties that are becoming available. So, you may have noticed over the last few months a far larger number of open house signs.

September 2017 Oakville Real Estate Update is showing that buyers are having more time to make decisions, and sellers in Oakville are not willing to accept low-ball offers. It also means that Realtors have been changing how they are doing business, since the cost of selling a home due to marketing costs and time increases. This will translate into low ball selling commission diminishing.
