Prices remain similar to last year, but ease in October

October’s housing market conditions closely echoed previous month’s trends with easing sales, rising inventories and downward price pressure. Like last month, the monthly activity was not enough to derail gains that occurred earlier in the year.

October sales and inventories totaled 1,467 and 6,463 units for a month of supply of 4.4. Several months of elevated supply in comparison to demand has weighed on pricing over the past several months. The city-wide unadjusted benchmark price in October totaled $438,900, 0.6 per cent below last month, but comparable to last year.  

“While economic activity has improved in 2017, it will take some time for this to

Why a 20% home down payment may not be worth it

 

It's tough to feel financially prudent when buying a house these days.

That's why an increasing number of first-time buyers are saving a down payment of 20 per cent or more. In doing so, they avoid having to buy mortgage default insurance which, in the case of a house price of $487,095 (the national average) bought with a 10 per cent down payment, would be 3.1 per cent or $13,590. This premium is generally added to the mortgage, which means more interest to pay.

It certainly sounds financially prudent to make a 20-per-cent down payment where possible, but this isn't always the case. In fact, you may save money both now and in the future by

As of January 1st 2018, all prospective buyers, even those with a down payment of over 20% will be required to undergo a "stress test" before any banking institution will be able to issue a loan for a mortgage. In the past only buyers with a down payment of less than 20% had to undergo these so-called stress tests, in which prospective buyers would have to qualify for a mortgage rate either 2 percentage points above the negotiated rate, or the Bank of Canada's five-year benchmark rate, whichever was the greater of the two. As of now the the central banks five-year rate is sitting at 4.89%. The original proposal for these measures was made in July 2017 amid the concern over rapid house price appreciation happening within southern Ontario. Since the
