Here are the numbers from Toronto Real Estate Board for the month of April 2017.

 

April 2017 Toronto Market Update

The trend of price rice continues despite decline in the sales activity. The drop in sales activity is largely due to the provincial government’s announcement to implement foreign buyer’s tax and rent control measures around the region of Greater Golden Horseshoe.

This has sent shock waves through market inducing fear, leading to speculative situation. People are holding back on making any decision. Average buyer is waiting to see if price drops. Of course there would be fewer buyers as foreign buyers may be reduced or not present.

This trend may continue through part of this month before the normal sales activity pick up. Those who do not prefer to be in bidding situation, this is good time to participate.
