Condos declining, Freeholds winning! Here’s Why

North Group
Oct 9 3 minutes read

Believe it or not, September was a record-setting month in GTA real estate. 🚀

Total number of sales rising 42% ⤴️ from the same time last year. 

Sale prices are also on the rise with the average home selling for ⬆️$960,772.  That's a whopping 14% increase year over year (something to note: on average prices increase anywhere between 2-3% a year). Notably, the condo market has seen a 4.72% ⬇️decline in prices since last quarter. 

Homes are selling 30% faster ⬆️this year than September last year. Currently once a home is listed for sale on MLS, it’s now taking approximately 22 days 📆 to have a firm offer. (noting that this does not include the time it takes to close which is typically anywhere between 30-90 days later). 

To summarize, we are seeing almost opposing scenarios between the condo market and the freehold housing market.  👤 Across the GTA, home sales are on the rise and this can be attributed to ongoing demand and low interest rates 📉that give Buyers more buying power. This demand is focused on freehold home types, dropping inventory and surging prices. 🏙For condos, the new COVID-19 environment has meant less appeal for smaller living spaces, downtown living and difficult rental opportunities in a changing market, which has notably slowed pricing and sale timelines in this segment.  

If you are looking to make a move this year, then understanding how these stats impact your plans is crucial. Let’s discuss your options. 📩
