This Week in Real Estate: November 11th-17th.

This week in real estate:  The market is headed for a soft landing, housing prices to stabilize temporarily, and Danforth Ave’s newest condo project is officially underway.


Heading for ‘soft landing’: October home sales up by modest 0.9%

Home sales across Canada in October were up by a seasonally adjusted “modest” increase of 0.9 per cent from September, the Canadian Real Estate Association said Wednesday.

The real estate group said sales activity in October was up from the previous month in about half of all local markets, led by the Greater Toronto Area and the Fraser Valley, along with a number of markets in the Greater Golden Horseshoe region.

“This morning’s report corroborates the notion that the Canadian housing market continues to manoeuvre a soft landing,” said TD senior economist Michael Dolega.

At least, that’s what CIBC Senior Economist Benjamin Tal has predicted in his latest report, released today.
