  2. Resale housing market drops 2% in Montreal The Gazette; Reuters Published: 4 hours ago Montreal's resale housing market declined two per cent in 2008, the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board said yesterday. For the first nine months of the year, 8,463 properties changed hands in the Montreal region. Property listings increased 12 per cent compared with the same period a year ago. The average selling price increase was five per cent this past quarter, vs. four per cent in the second quarter and six per cent in the first quarter. "Despite the rise in listings observed over the last two quarters, the high demand is such that the resale market remains favourable to sellers," Michel Beausejour, the board's CEO, said
  3. Canada's housing boom is over, bank says VIRGINIA GALT Globe and Mail Update June 26, 2008 at 10:44 AM EDT After a long run of rapidly-rising prices, the Canadian housing market has cooled to the point that it is no longer a sellers' market, Toronto-Dominion Bank said Thursday. “The long-awaited end of the Canadian housing boom has occurred, reflecting more moderate demand and increased supply of properties for sale,” TD economists Craig Alexander and Pascal Gauthier said in a report. “The year-over-year price growth for existing homes in Canada's major markets fell to only 1.1 per cent in May, down from 8.6 per cent just four months earlier,” the TD economists wrote. “The trend has been broadly based, but is has been particularly sharp in some of the markets that had experienced the most dramatic price growth. Calgary and Edmonton home prices in April and May fell to below year-earlier levels.” The TD economists said they had expected the slowdown to occur before now, but “housing remained stronger for longer than we had anticipated, largely due to increased affordability through new financing options, such as no money down or extended amortization.” Regional economic strength related to the commodity boom also helped to fuel “unsustainably elevated home price growth in the west,” they wrote. Last month, the Canadian Real Estate Association reported that resale home listings across Canada rose by 17.7 per cent in April from a year earlier – pushing the number of home listings to the highest level on record. At the time, Bank of Montreal economist Douglas Porter noted: “For the first time in a long time, sellers are not in the drivers' seat any more. I'm not necessarily saying that buyers are in the drivers' seat either, but what we've seen truly is a return to a balanced market.” The TD economists concurred in their report Thursday. “Most of Canada's major housing markets have moved out of sellers' territory to more balanced markets.” Mr. Alexander and Mr. Gauthier forecast modest national average price growth of 2 per cent this year and 3.5 per cent in 2009, “down substantially from the 10 per cent annual pace of the last six years.” However, the Canadian housing market remains fundamentally strong, unlike the U.S. market, where the National Association of Realtors reported Thursday that median home prices continued to fall. The median price of an existing U.S. home sold in May was $208,600 (U.S), down 6.3 per cent from a year earlier – fallout from the subprime mortgage crisis. In Canada, the TD economists forecast an average existing home price of $313,300 (Canadian) in 2008, up 2 per cent from last year's average. Canadians, the TD economists said, are “cashing in, not foreclosing. “... It should be stressed that the rise in listings does not reflect homeowners of principal dwellings desperate to sell, and this is the dominant difference between the Canadian and U.S. experience,” they wrote in their report, Canada's Housing Boom Comes to an End. “Indeed, the U.S. has been characterized by an abnormal rise in delinquencies and foreclosures or large negative equity positions. In Canada, speculators may be quickly dumping properties on the market to get out while the times are good, but individuals that have a principal dwelling are not under financial duress. “Canadian consumers are nowhere nearly as leveraged through their home equity as American consumers are.” Throughout the rest of this year and 2009, most regional housing markets in Canada “will see low to mid single-digit gains, but Saskatchewan and Manitoba will continue to post double-digit gains in the near term, followed by a significant cooling in 2009 – with the risk of a mild price correction in the major cities that have recently experienced extraordinary price growth,” the TD economists said. “Alberta will have further weakness in the near term, as Calgary and Edmonton will likely see prices continue to fall for another three or four quarters, dropping 8 per cent to 10 per cent from their peak, after which prices should stabilize and start rising at a low single-digit pace.” http://www.reportonbusiness.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080626.whousing0626/BNStory/Business/home
  4. http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/Realtor+lose+Montreal+listings/9285009/story.html Realtor.ca to lose Montreal listings BY ALLISON LAMPERT, GAZETTE REAL ESTATE REPORTER DECEMBER 13, 2013 7:10 PM Starting Jan. 1, Montreal brokers will only be able to list homes for sale on Centris.ca, a real estate website unique to Quebec. Photograph by: DAVE SIDAWAY , The Gazette MONTREAL — The Canadian Real Estate Association’s popular Realtor.ca website — widely known as the MLS — will no longer list Montreal homes for sale. The Greater Montreal Real Estate Board said Friday its brokers have voted in favour of separating from CREA. Starting Jan. 1, Montreal brokers will only be able to list homes for sale on Centris.ca, a real estate website unique to Quebec. Real estate brokers who favoured separating from CREA won by 66 votes out of 3,826 votes cast. Montreal’s 9,700 brokers will no longer be able to list homes for sale on Realtor.ca — also known as the Multiple Listing Service — or on CREA’s ICX.ca, which features commercial properties. “We were disappointed when we saw the decision,” said CREA spokesperson Pierre Leduc. Leduc could not say how many listings were generated by CREA’s Montreal membership. Quebec’s 17,000 brokers currently generate 80,000 listings on Realtor.ca. Brokers from four real estate boards located in Montreal, Quebec City, Granby and Drummondville have voted to leave CREA, while brokers from the Saguenay and the Laurentians will make a choice on whether to separate next week. The votes follow a lengthy dispute over rising fees for members, duplication of services like the Realtor and Centris websites, along with a brewing turf war over the listing of Quebec homes for a flat fee by out-of-province brokers. The Montreal board has objected to instances of brokers from Ontario — who are not subject to Quebec’s strict professional rules — listing a home in the Belle Province for a flat fee. CREA said it cannot stop its members from Ontario, or other provinces, from listing homes for sale in Quebec. Citing October data, the Montreal board said Centris was the fourth most popular real estate website geared at buying or renting a residential property in Quebec, with Realtor.ca ranked ninth. The most popular site was Kijiji. However, several Montreal brokers told The Gazette they were concerned about the decline in visibility that comes with losing access to Realtor.ca at a time of a softening Montreal real estate market. Leduc said Montreal-area brokers who are unhappy with the “yes vote” can join one of Quebec’s eight boards that are still members of CREA. He said he’s also heard of a “partitionist” movement among brokers who want to set up a separate Montreal real estate board that would remain part of CREA. “CREA will support these endeavours.” [email protected] Twitter: RealDealMtl
  5. Greater Montreal Real Estate Board Statistics: Real Estate Market Off to a Strong Start ILE-DES-SOEURS, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 7, 2007) - The real estate market is off to a strong start with sales increasing by 16%, according to statistics from the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board (GMREB) MLS® System. In January 2007, 3,631 homes changed hands, compared to 3,141 in 2006. "Job creation is strong, consumer confidence in the economy is still positive and despite a slight increase in interest rates in 2006, the market remains good to buy or sell a home", says GMREB Chief Executive Officer, Michel Beausejour, FCA. "The environment for the real estate market will remain favourable in 2007 with the number of listings still increasing, which will help balance the market and slow down price increases. As for the number of transactions, we expect that 2007 will be similar to 2006." Condominiums The highest increase in transactions was observed in condominium sales, which went up by 21% in January 2007, from 628 sales in January 2006 to 763. The increase was even stronger on the Island of Montreal, which recorded 39% more condominium sales. "The condominium resale market has reached a balanced level on most of the Island of Montreal and we are now even talking of a buyers' market in the boroughs of Ahuntsic-Cartierville and Saint-Laurent", adds the GMREB spokesperson. "In such a context, it becomes even more important to hire a real estate agent in order to ensure a quick transaction at the best possible price." In terms of condominiums, the average price went up by 7% in January 2007 to $200,000, compared to $187,000 in 2006. ---------------------------------------------- CONDOMINIUM ---------------------------------------------- January 2007 ---------------------------------------------- Administrative Average Variation Region Price 2005-2006 ---------------------------------------------- Montreal $227,000 +6% ---------------------------------------------- Laval $160,000 -0,5% ---------------------------------------------- Monteregie $162,000 +9% ---------------------------------------------- Laurentides $173,000 -8% ---------------------------------------------- Lanaudiere $129,000 +5% ---------------------------------------------- Single-family homes In January 2007, the single-family home market increased by 14% with 2,341 sales recorded on the GMREB MLS® System, compared to 2,046 sales at the same time in 2006. The average value of a single-family home rose by 2%, from $204,000 in January 2006 to $209,000 in January 2007. ---------------------------------------------- SINGLE-FAMILY HOME ---------------------------------------------- January 2007 ---------------------------------------------- Administrative Average Variation Region Price 2005-2006 ---------------------------------------------- Montreal $315,000 +3% ---------------------------------------------- Laval $214,000 +4% ---------------------------------------------- Monteregie $201,000 +2% ---------------------------------------------- Laurentides $182,000 -4% ---------------------------------------------- Lanaudiere $162,000 +6% ---------------------------------------------- This is not necessarily a true indication of the actual price of single-family homes in all sectors of the Greater Montreal area, but rather an indication of the trend in the average cost of properties located in the areas covered by the GMREB. In January 2007, the total sales dollar volume of units sold reached $761 million, rising 18% from the $643 million recorded in January 2006 in the GMREB MLS® System. In January 2007, 10,146 new listings were entered in the system, up by 8% compared to the 9,424 new listings entered in January 2006. As of January 31, 2007, there were 36,585 residential listings in the GMREB MLS® System, compared to 33,389 at the same time last year.
