Interest Rates

On March 6th the Bank of Canada held its policy rate at 5% for the 6th consecutive time. The next announcement is on April 10th. While many predict rates to come down at some point in 2024 consensus seems to be the Bank of Canada will hold again for the 7th time on April 10th. We'll update this post when the news comes in.

What Does This Mean for Buyers and Sellers?

For Buyers:

Buyers will benefit from increases in inventory as the Spring Market chugs along but they now have less time to buy with Days on Market for many property types across the GTA coming down. To ensure success buyers should:

  • Be Ready to Act: Don't miss out on an opportunity. With homes selling faster be prepared with your financing so you can make that offer on your dream home.

  • Date the Rate:  With rates expected to come down purchasing now will benefit you later in renewal. When rates do start to come down you can bet prices will go up.

For Sellers:

Despite a rise in sales and a surge in new listings, low inventory levels persist, intensifying buyer competition and fostering ample opportunities for sellers. While the spring market may be progressing, don't hesitate to act, even amidst the allure of awaiting more favorable mortgage rates. Consider this:

  • Seize the Moment: Higher demand could fetch you a premium price, potentially offsetting any future price increases when rates drop. Consider leveraging this opportunity to maximize returns, not only on the sale of your current property but also on your next home.

  • Favorable Outlook: With prices continuing to climb and properties spending less time on the market, now is an opportune time to strategize your next move. Confidence is key as positive trends persist in the market."


Conclusion:


In conclusion, March 2024 has unveiled a real estate landscape brimming with opportunities for both buyers and sellers across the GTA. Despite a slight dip in year-over-year sales, the market exhibited robust month-over-month growth, showcasing its resilience and dynamism. Sellers continue to enjoy favorable conditions with low inventory levels, while buyers can capitalize on the steady increase in available listings and stable pricing trends. As we eagerly anticipate the Bank of Canada's upcoming announcement on interest rates, it's imperative for buyers to act swiftly and sellers to seize the moment. Whether you're looking to enter the market or make a move, staying informed and proactive will be key to achieving your real estate goals in the months ahead.

What Does This Mean for Buyers and Sellers?

For Buyers:

In a landscape where competition is heating up, but inventory is also rising (just not outpacing sales any longer). preparation is key. To capitalize on opportunities, buyers should:

  • Financial Readiness:  Ensure your finances are in order and work with a reputable lender who can provide guidance and support throughout the buying process.
  • Offer Strategy:  Familiarize yourself with different offer processes, including the Open Offer Process, to navigate negotiations effectively.
  • Market Value Analysis:  Gain insights into how list prices are determined and understand the true market value of a property to make informed decisions.

Opportunity Awaits:

With increasing inventory and the promise of even more homes hitting the market in the spring, now is an opportune time for buyers who are ready to make their move. By staying informed and prepared, buyers can navigate the competitive landscape with confidence and find the perfect home to suit their needs.

For Sellers:

While the market is currently favoring sellers, it's important to note that nothing is guaranteed. With the significant increase in new listings—up by 33.5% year-over-year and 37% month-over-month—buyers now have more options available to them. Consequently, not every home will attract multiple offers.

To position your home for success in this competitive landscape, focus on:

  • Accurate Pricing:  Ensure your home is priced competitively to attract the attention of potential buyers and encourage multiple offers.
  • Strategic Presentation:  Invest in staging and presenting your home in its best light to captivate buyers' attention and maximize its appeal.
  • Effective Marketing:  Work with a skilled real estate team, like Jim Stanton & Associates, to implement targeted marketing strategies that reach the right audience and generate interest in your property.

By prioritizing these key factors, you can increase the likelihood of receiving multiple offers and securing the highest and best price for your home.

Spring Cleaning Checklist: 10 Essential Tasks for March

As the chill of winter fades away and the freshness of spring beckons, it's time to give your home a revitalizing makeover.

Neglecting spring cleaning tasks in March can lead to a range of issues, including increased allergens, pest infestations, decreased indoor air quality, decreased appliance lifespan, unpleasant odors, and visual discomfort. Regular maintenance and cleaning are essential for a healthy, comfortable, and enjoyable living environment.

Spring cleaning isn't just about tidying up; it's a chance to refresh and rejuvenate your living space.

Here's a handy checklist of 10 essential tasks to tackle this March:

  1. Declutter Every Room:  Start by decluttering each room in your home. Rid yourself of items you no longer need or use. Donate, recycle, or discard as necessary. Decluttering not only makes your space look better but also promotes mental clarity and calmness.

  2. Deep Clean Floors:  Give your floors some love by deep cleaning them. Vacuum carpets thoroughly, paying attention to corners and under furniture. For hardwood or tile floors, mop with a gentle cleaner to remove dirt and grime.

  3. Dust and Polish Surfaces: Dust accumulates over the winter months, so it's time to banish it. Dust all surfaces, including shelves, tables, and light fixtures. Don't forget to polish wood furniture for a gleaming finish.

  4. Wash Windows and Treatments: Let the spring sunshine in by cleaning your windows inside and out. Remember, it's best to avoid washing windows on sunny days as the sunlight can cause streaks. Instead, choose an overcast day for streak-free results. Don't overlook window treatments like curtains or blinds – give them a good wash or vacuum to remove dust and allergens.

  5. Deep Clean Kitchen Appliances:  Your kitchen appliances have likely seen a lot of action during the winter holidays. Give them a thorough cleaning inside and out. Don't forget the refrigerator coils and oven racks!

  6. Freshen Up Bedding and Mattresses:  Wash all bedding, including sheets, pillowcases, and duvet covers. Take this opportunity to rotate and flip mattresses for even wear and tear.

  7. Organize Closets and Storage Spaces: Take stock of your closets and storage areas. Donate unused clothing and accessories, and organize what's left. Invest in storage solutions like bins or baskets to maximize space.

  8. Clean and Inspect HVAC Systems:  As the weather warms up, it's a good time to clean or replace HVAC filters. Schedule a professional inspection and maintenance service to ensure your heating and cooling systems are running efficiently.

  9. Refresh Bathroom Fixtures: Scrub bathroom surfaces, including sinks, toilets, and tubs. Replace worn-out shower curtains or liners, and stock up on essential toiletries for a fresh start to spring.

  10. Tidy Outdoor Spaces:  Don't forget about the exterior of your home! Sweep pathways, clean outdoor furniture, and spruce up your garden or patio. Trim bushes and trees as needed to welcome the new season.

By tackling these 10 essential tasks for spring cleaning in March, you'll not only enjoy a cleaner and more organized home but also set the stage for a vibrant and refreshing spring season ahead. Happy cleaning!

January Market Update

January Market Update

 In January 2024, the average selling price of homes across the GTA experienced a one percent year-over-year decline, settling at $1,026,703 according to The MLS® Home Price Index Composite. While home sales increased compared to the same month in 2023. This rise was partly due to certain homebuyers taking advantage of lower interest rates linked to fixed-rate mortgages. While new property listings also saw a year-over-year increase, the growth rate was lower than that of home sales. The resulting tighter market conditions, compared to the previous year, suggest the possibility of renewed price growth as we transition into the spring market. Essentially, the increased demand, coupled with a more modest increase in available homes, may contribute to a potential uptick in housing prices.

What we are seeing on the ground

In a market characterized by both increased sales and a surge in property listings, home buyers and sellers find themselves navigating a dynamic and competitive landscape. The spike in listings provides buyers with a broader array of options, but the heightened demand, particularly in the lower price range, has resulted in more properties receiving multiple offers. Despite the competitive atmosphere, there remains ample opportunity for savvy buyers to find a suitable property and engage in negotiations. Sellers, on the other hand, are benefiting from the renewed demand, potentially receiving more attractive offers. Overall, the market's equilibrium between increased sales and listings creates an environment where both buyers and sellers must adapt to changing dynamics while recognizing opportunities for successful transactions.

Reflecting on last month's post


Last month we proposed the ways our housing market could go in 2024 largely hinging on the potential for mortgage rates to come down based on a reduction in the Bank of Canada's (BoC) policy and that of the fixed-rate bond market.


Well if January is any indication a return to a Seller's Market is imminent. With the BoC pausing rates for the 4th consecutive decision in January and fixed rates looking more favorable buyers have gotten a head start on the Spring Market.

What’s next: A Reflection on 2023 and a look ahead to 2024

2023 Summary for the GTA

Home sales were down in 2023 buyers who stuck it out through higher interest rates in 2023 benefited from more choice and more negotiating power which resulted in paying lower prices when compared to 2023. 

  • Home Sales saw a 12.1 per cent dip compared to 2022.

  • Average sold prices across home types in 2023 saw a 5.4 per cent decline compared to 2022 bringing average sold price down to $1,126,604.

Outlook for 2024

There is little consensus on the future of the real estate market in 2024. Aside from the fact that most experts expect some relief in the Bank of Canada’s Policy rate which should help with borrowing costs for homeowners and would-be buyers. Experts are divided on exactly when, how many and how big an impact interest rate cuts will have. 

The main factors affecting real estate forecasts in 2024.

  • When and how much will the BoC reduce its policy rate in 2024? (2024 BoC announcement schedule)

  • Will changes in variable and fixed rate mortgages be enough to bring buyers back?

  • How will homeowners up for renewal deal with rising financing costs?

2 Potential Outcomes and Everything in Between

A Return to a Sellers Market

If interest rates do come down in 2024 we will see more buyers enter the market. The question is, how many rate cuts could we see and how low could rates go? In March of 2023 a mere pause at 4.5% sent us back into a brief Sellers Market. If that happens again buyers who stay on the fence will regret it. It’s unlikely that we see the kind of pandemic sales we saw but it remains possible that the combination of high immigration, rising rent costs and lower interest rates increases competition for homes in 2024.

A Balanced Market

An environment with modestly lower interest rates could yield a continuation of the current balanced market. This is especially true if inventory remains at 3-4 months worth. Sellers looking to downsize, move up or relocate may be more likely to move when interest rates drop and sellers who are renewing mortgages at a cost that may be too high might decide to sell. This would bring more homes on the market and offset any increases in demand. This seems like the safe bet and most likely outcome to us.

For the Doom Scrollers

The other possibility is for those who love bad news. According to RateHub.ca 80% of all mortgages that were outstanding as of March 2022 will come up for renewal in 2024. That means those borrowers will be renewing at a much higher rate. Per Statistics Canada, mortgage interest payments have soared by nearly 90% since March 2022. Some are forecasting a high volume of distressed sales which if enough homes come on the market without buyers continue to put downward pressure on home prices throughout 2024. This inventory of course would have to outpace demand from new buyers entering the market as interest rates come down. Another factor of note is that for 2024 alone this pool only represents 14% of all mortgages in Canada which relative to the total number of homeowners is very small and Canada’s mortgage stress test will have buffered some of the risk for many of these homeowners.

Our Point of View

For our part the most likely scenario is a balanced market where the push/pull effect of higher interest rates pushing some buyers off and some sellers in while immigration and a slow reduction in interest rates bolster demand could offset one another enough to balance the market in 2024. 

That said if interest rates become too attractive and more buyers enter the market we could see competition for homes pick-up in 2024.

What do you think will happen in 2024?
