October sales eased compared to last year’s levels, mostly to slower activity in the detached sector. However, with 1,857 sales this month, levels are still stronger than long-term trends and activity reported prior to the pandemic. Year-to-date sales have reached 26,823 and with only 2 months to go, 2022 will likely post a record year in terms of sales.

New listings also trended down this month causing the sales-to-new-listings ratio to rise to 85% and inventories to trend down. Much of the inventory decline has been driven by product priced below $500,000. While conditions are not a tight as what was seen earlier in the year, with only 2 months of supply, conditions remain tighter than historical levels.

We are also seeing divergent trends in the market with conditions continuing to favour the seller in the lower-price ranges and shifting to more balanced conditions in the upper-price ranges. As of October, prices have eased by 4% relative to the highs reached in May. This is considered a relatively small adjustment when considering price movements in other large cities.

It is also important to note that the October benchmark price is still nearly 10% higher than levels reported last year>

When the overnight rate is increased, it becomes more expensive to borrow money. The increased costs of borrowing money are shifted from the bank onto the consumer by increasing the Prime Rate.

Pre-Approvals are likely to decrease.

Fixed-Rate Mortgages remain the same.

Adjustable Rate Mortgages will increase according to the new Prime Rate minus your discount. (Expect information in the mail).

Static Variable Mortgages payments remain the same but a portion of interest paid to the lender will change.

Reach out with your questions anytime. I can introduce you to a mortgage broker who would be happy to go over your options with you and help you find a mortgage that you're most comfortable with.

The strong sales for both condominium apartment and row properties was not enough to offset the declines reported for other property types. City sales eased by nearly 12% compared to last year. ⁠With 1,901 sales in September, activity is still far stronger than levels prior to the pandemic and is well above long-term trends for September. ⁠With recent pullbacks in sales and thanks to strong levels earlier in the year, year-to-date sales remain 15% higher than last year’s levels. ⁠

In September, new listings declined by 10%. With a sales-to-new-listings ratio of 72% it was enough to prevent any gain in inventory levels, which declined over last month and were nearly 21% lower than last year’s levels. ⁠The adjustments in both sales and supply levels have caused the months of supply to remain relatively low at less than three months and the shift to more balanced conditions is causing some adjustments to home prices. ⁠

While prices have slid from the highs seen in May, as of September, benchmark prices remain 11% higher than last year and 6% higher than levels reported at the beginning of the year.⁠
