The holiday season is a busy time of year for everyone. Clients, past and present alike, are scurrying among the holiday shoppers, jolly party-goers, and festive home decorators, and finding spare time in your calendar is like finding missing scissors in the middle of a holiday gift wrapping frenzy. That being said, one thing we all make time for during this time of year is reflecting on the year that has passed, while making predictions and looking ahead at the year to come. With the 2016 Housing Market Outlook, that is exactly what we are doing!
About the RE/MAX 2016 Housing Market Outlook Report
In 2015, high demand and low supply continued to characterize Vancouver and Toronto’s Housing Markets, and the limited inventory of single-family homes pushed prices higher. The Greater Vancouver Area saw a 17 percent increase in the average residential sale price and the Greater Toronto Area followed closely behind with a ten percent increase. These markets are both expected to continue to see price appreciation, and regions outside of Canada’s highest-priced cities reported a spill over effect from the price increases.
91% of Canadians say that home ownership is part of the Canadian dream
In 2016, RE/MAX average residential sale price expectation for Canada is an increase of 2.5 percent as Canadians continue to see home ownership as an important milestone as well as a good investment.
