James Metcalfe`s Toronto Real Estate Market Update August 2013

Total unit volume through the Toronto MLS® system in July was 8,544 – which represented a whopping 16% increase versus July 2012.This was the best July sales result since 2009 and was the third best July result on record. The strong sales performance can be attributed to the re-emergence of first-time buyers into the market. The average price of a GTA resale home in July was $513,246 – a healthy 8% increase versus the July 2012 average price of $475,523.

“Legally Speaking“ Reviews the SPIS (Seller Property Information Statements) as it pertains to risks.

“Personal Finances“  Reviews Mortgage Interest Tax Deductibility.

My take for August is we are in a Balanced … yet leaning to a Sellers Market in Toronto Centre.

…and a teaser from the ever popular “Pearls of Wisdom“ …  “Golf is a game in which you yell ‘fore’, shoot six, and write down five.”
