Hope everyone has had a good first week back at school or just getting back into your own routines after the last long weekend of the summer. September is always a busy month and even before we had our kids, and long after my schooling was complete, Labour Day weekend always felt like the start of something new.
There were 7,711 residential sales in Toronto in August 2019. This was a 13.4% increase compared to 6,797 sales reported in August 2018. On a month-over-month basis, after preliminary seasonal adjustment, sales were up by 0.8%.
There were 8,595 home sales in Toronto in the month of July. This result was up by 24.3% compared to July 2018. On a month-over-month basis, sales were up by 5.1%, after preliminary seasonal adjustment. New listings were also up compared to July 2018, but by a much lesser annual rate than sales, at 3.7%.
If you are looking for a summer camp that will provide an educational, inspirational and adventurous week for your kids, look no further. We had the chance to learn more about the lovely Amy Montemurro and her KidKind summer camp programming and hope you’ll enjoy getting to know her just as much as we have. Over to you Amy!
There were 8,860 sales reported in June 2019 which represents a 10.4% increase compared to June 2018. Over the same time period, total new listings remained at a similar level for the month of June and active listings at month-end were down by 5.7%.
There were a reported 9,989 sales in Toronto last month which is an increase of 18.9% over the 15-year low experienced in May 2018. However, this result is still below the average that we have seen in the month of May over the past ten years, which is 10,300. This year-over-year uptick in sales does suggest though, that the share of likely home buyers in the GTA has edged upwards since the fall.
We have had the pleasure of working with Julie for many years now and it’s time that you get to know her a bit better as well. She is a talented musician, dedicated local business owner and one of the loveliest people we know. If you are looking to enrol your children in music programs in the west end of Toronto, look no further. From her commitment to the community to super fun open-mic nights, this boutique studio has something for everyone! Over to you Julie!
In the 19 years I have been in real estate I have often contemplated this question…..what DO we stand for? And in addition to that, what do we stand against?
It may not have warmed up much since we brought you the outdoor living inspiration a month ago, but we are getting closer. Promise. The sun has been shining and things are FINALLY turning green. We pulled together some outdoor dining furniture that works well with the outdoor living themes from last month. Bring in similar pops of colour, be consistent with style and you will have expanded your functional living space all season long.
