But detached house prices were down 2.5 per cent across the region — a 4 per cent decline in the 905 area to an average price of 0,488 and, a 1.1 per cent drop in Toronto to about .3 million.

NHBC chief executive Mike Quinton said: “It looks like the detached home is making a comeback with our figures showing that housebuilders are building the highest number of detached properties for a decade, with semis also performing well. Report Comment.

The opularity of Toronto’s leafy Little Italy and Trinity-Bellwoods neighbourhoods has helped those downtown pockets achieve the best quarter-over-quarter price increases in the Toronto area this year.

Detached houses in those hip urban areas were up 17 per cent in the second quarter of the year averaging $1.88 million, compared to the first three months when they averaged $1.6 million, according to a Re/MAX report published Thursday.

Across the Toronto region, with the exception of condos, year-over-year home prices have remained relatively flat, although they inched up 2.5 per cent overall in June, led by a 9.5 per cent increase in condos, according to the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB).

  Real estate experts predict a return to normal for slumping GTA housing prices The slowdown in the Toronto region’s housing market that began last year continued through the first half of 2018, but two big industry players suggest that buyers and sellers are ready to shake off the malaise with a return to normal later this year.Although 2018 “was a spring market that never blossomed,” Royal LePage CEO Phil Soper says he sees change on the near horizon after 14 months of government intervention, higher interest rates and new mortgage rules.“On a week by week basis we’re seeing an uptick in prices.

But traditional, detached houses have been making a quiet comeback, said Christopher Alexander, Re/MAX Integra’s executive vice-president and regional director.

“The condo story was overshadowing a lot of the activity of single-family detached,” he said. “The fact remains that people who bought in the last seven years, prior to 2016-2017, gained a lot of equity and market conditions were easier for buyers to make decisions they felt comfortable with.”

When the frenzied buying hit the region in 2016 and continued through the first four months of 2017, “it was tough to be a buyer,” said Alexander. “Now it’s not as tough. You’ve got choices and you can make informed decisions better.”

Toronto and Vancouver top-tier housing markets headed in opposite directions: Sotheby’s

  Toronto and Vancouver top-tier housing markets headed in opposite directions: Sotheby’s Toronto and Vancouver top-tier housing markets headed in opposite directions: Sotheby’sThe real estate agency released a new report Tuesday looking at the $1 million-plus segment of the housing market. In earlier eras, we could have called this the "luxury" housing market, but with the benchmark price of a detached home at $1.6 million in Vancouver, and just above $1 million in Greater Toronto, this is now just the pricier end of the "regular" housing market.

Toronto ' s housing market was cool and slow for the first month of 2018, just like our weather and subway lines. "It is not surprising that home prices in some market segments were flat to down in January compared to last year," he said in today's report .

Re/MAX found that conditions this year are showing signs of a new normal that looks more like the pre-fevered market. That heated market sagged when the Ontario government launched its cooling measures, such as a foreign buyers tax in April 2015 and interest rates started rising as consumers were hit by tighter borrowing restrictions.

Wednesday’s Bank of Canada quarter-point rate hike to 1.5 per cent won’t impact the housing market, said Alexander.

“Interest rates rising is a sign of a good economy and a quarter per cent is nominal. You might have to spend a couple of extra months saving up, but that’s such a nominal number we’re not concerned,” he said.

Detached house prices held steady in 49 of 65 TREB areas between the first and second quarter, and in 63 out of 65 neighbourhoods the number of sales increased between the first and second quarters — typical of the market as the weather warms up, said Alexander.

An average single-family home in the city of Toronto went for .191 million in August, the city' s real estate board reported Wednesday. What this means is that, for the first time in many years, the gap between condo prices and detached house prices is shrinking, making it easier — if not easy — for

Although the average Toronto detached house sold for about $1.36 million in June, there were five neighbourhoods inside the city borders where houses averaged less than $860,000. Those were: Humber, Claireville, Rexdale-Kipling and Thistletown-Beaumond Heights where the average was $732,854; Bendale, Woburn and Morningside at $742,670; Malvern and Rouge, $752,292; Rockcliffe-Smythe, Keesdale-Eglinton West and Weston with an average of $783,141 and Downsview-Roding, Glenfield-Jane Heights, Black Creek and Humber Summit where the average house was $859,215.

Re/MAX is the third company this week to predict a stronger half to 2018. Royal LePage and Sotheby’s also issued reports suggesting that the Toronto area housing market is returning to normal — although not the torrid activity of late 2016 and early 2017.

The volume of sales rose highest in Toronto’s Bedford Park-Nortown, Lawrence Park, Forest Hill North areas between the first two quarters — up 193 per cent. But Mississauga and Caledon took the second and third spots respectively — up 122 per cent — followed by Yonge-St. Clair, Annex, Wychwood and Highland Creek, Centennial, West Hill, Rouge where transactions rose 118 and 116 per cent respectively.
