The state of the Toronto real estate market
When it comes to investing in property in Canada, many people look towards the largest metro city, Toronto, Ontario. However, what many people don't realize is that the real estate market in Toronto has been slow over the past decade.


Property Pre-Construction News in TO
The biggest Canadian city keeps getting bigger and better. Toronto, home to many of Canada’s top corporate head quarters in addition to being the largest metropolitan area in the country, provides a stability and urban culture that is not seen in other cities in Canada. The Toronto real estate market has always been traditionally stable and not too exciting, but it is perfect for long term investors and first time home purchasers in the real estate pre-construction market as the affordability index has stayed consistent between supply/demand as well as income levels in the city. With manufacturing and tourism being at the forefront these days, Toronto has a lot going for it. Along the lakefront areas and downtown corridor are many pre-sales and preconstruction developments of condominium high-rise towers including such projects as Shangri-La (second one in Canada after the one in Vancouver) as well as condo properties like Trump International Hotel and Tower residences which will take place and be completed within the next few years. A growing trend in this Canadian city of Toronto is condo-hotels or also conveniently known as private residence clubs and hotel-condominium suites that are investment properties that allow you to reside in the condos during your time in Toronto and then rent it out as a five star resort hotel guest room during your absence. Complete with concierge and professional booking and management services, Toronto condo hotels are popular as the affordable and cost-effectiveness of such an idea has been embraced at least initially. Like with most other major cities in Canada, pre-construction property in Toronto is one of the main sellers in the real estate market as first-time homebuyers and investment pros seek lower price-points as well as new construction condo homes. With great warranties these days, people are getting smart and Toronto preconstruction condominium residences provides a safe and sure bet long term investment potential while you can enjoy a completely new home. Also around the downtown districts are new masterplanned townhome or town house communities, some gated and some not. The Toronto townhome market is very hot as the house prices skyrocket while the condominium residence pricing goes up and townhouses provide the best bang for your buck in terms of dollars per square footage when compared to other forms of housing in the city.

The Toronto Condominium Presales Opportunties are Ripe for the Purchasing Power of First Time Home Buyers and Investors
One thing to note is that the Toronto real estate market has been lulled by a slowing economy and many industry experts have pointed out Ontario’s negative GDP growth in 2006-2007 which has led to a decrease in the number of jobs as well as livability measures in the city. However, with manufacturing, high-tech, biotech and tourism leading the way, Toronto and especially some of the outer districts such as Etobicoke, Mississauga and Barrie Ontario are catching up and growing very rapidly. With an optimistic outlook on the Ontario economy for the next five years, the pre-construction and presales Toronto condo market will continue to increase in value and appreciate quicker than the national rate according to the latest predictions. A huge investment in infrastructure, roads, highways and downtown urban living spaces have brought upon new apartments, renovated plexes and much more inventory to the market, thus creating more competition, better prices and less of a bargaining war. It is a great time to get into the Toronto property real estate market, so are you ready?

This bodes well for anyone who is already in or is thinking about getting into the Ontario or Toronto property market specifically this year, as most of Toronto and the surrounding towns and municipalities should show a gain in capital appreciation. Suburbs and towns like Barrie or Kingston, Oshawa and Missasauga should see significance growth this year.

In addition, you have probably seen the many presales Toronto real estate development properties in the form of great master-planned townhome communities, condominium tower residences and mid-rise or low-rise boutique developments. As the economy in Ontario starts to pick up in 2007, Toronto should see a good rise in real estate prices as well this year as the average income should gain slightly after being stagnant for almost a decade.

The real estate investment fundamentals in Toronto are there and getting better. It is now your turn to do the research, select the right presales or under construction or older property and determine what your gam plan is specifically for each property. Unlike the major cities like Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton who have seen a great explosion of more than thirty per cent increases per year, the Toronto real estate property investment market will be more stable and will see a smaller increase per year, but still significant. The presales Toronto property projects are also well underway, including some high-end condominium hotels and high-rise tower residences that will transform the Toronto skyline forever. With many people lining up to purchase new condos in downtown Toronto and also in the suburbs, this growing city will see a good growth in new construction properties in the next decade at least.
