Off with the old and in with the new!
Before we say goodbye to 2013, let's recap the most popular posts on our blog and in the greater Toronto real estate market.
Here is The Best of 2013!
What a year it's been! Definitely not one of certainty... for the experts it was either going to be up or down. Many wrongly predicted the Toronto real estate bubble was going to burst, while others such as myself, suggested otherwise - that Toronto has no bubble. Home prices are up a healthy 8.9%, First-time buyers can still get a rebate on the Land Transfer Tax, the condo market remains stable with prices growing modestly and sales of homes worth 1 million or more are up substantially across greater Toronto.
The latest predictions suggest higher mortgage rates in the next few years will restrain housing sales in Ontario but that there will be no price correction. A humble 2-4% a year through 2016 is now what’s being forecast. You could read more on what's in store for 2014 with some predictions from me in the coming weeks.
Enjoy this selection of the most read posts from 2013
