Neighbourhoods Where Home Prices Have Gained Most in Canada’s Major Cities

Great article in www.TheGlobeandMail.com  

When Canada’s national housing numbers are released Monday by the Canadian Real Estate Association, they’ll likely show some notable discrepancies between markets. Prices in Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver have been hot lately, but not so much in other areas.

But that’s not the whole story. Even within cities, the variations in how different neighbourhoods have fared can be significant.

So Brookfield RPS pored through its data for some of Canada’s major centres for The Globe and Mail and determined which areas (it breaks them down by the first three digits of their postal code) have had the strongest price appreciation over the last five years. Top bragging rights go to those people who bought detached houses in Vancouver’s Dunbar neighbourhood in 2009, where the average price has more than doubled. Find a map with information about these exact neighbourhoods at the bottom of this article.

Here’s what the team at Brookfield RPS found:

Montreal

When it comes to detached houses in Montreal, the neighbourhoods whose prices have performed the best over the past five years are Westmount, Saint Laurent and Verdun. They collectively saw prices grow by 59 per cent. As for condos, the top locations for price growth were Saint-Lambert, Bois Chomedey and Nouveau-Rosemont, which collectively saw condo prices rise 69 per cent. In comparison, the average price of all types of homes city-wide increased 18 per cent.

Montreal’s housing market is currently showing signs of struggling, with the number of homes that changed hands during August coming in 6per cent lower than a year earlier, according to the local real estate board. Each of the main areas that the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board tracks – the North Shore, Laval, the South Shore, Vaudreuil-Soulanges and the Island of Montreal – saw sales fall last month. Sales fell by only 4 per cent in Vaudreuil-Soulanges and on the Island, making those the best performing neighbourhoods. The median price of a home in Montreal is currently $285,000, unchanged from a year ago.

GTA Home Buyers Faced With Moving Up or Out

Great article in www.TheStar.com 

The GTA housing market these days is a study in extremes.

Home-hunters of average means looking for a place to buy have two stark choices: move up, or move out.

In response to the province’s Places to Grow intensification plan, there’s been a fundamental shift toward highrise development, and a corresponding drastic reduction in the amount of houses and townhomes being built across the region.

This shift has had a dramatic impact on the price difference between the two housing types.

Back in January 2005, the RealNet Price Index for a lowrise home in the GTA was $371,426 — a $100,574 premium over the price of a highrise home.

Less than a decade later, in June 2014, the price index set a new record high for lowrise homes at $680,529. It was also a new record-high premium of $243,653 over the price of a highrise home.

For a young couple earning a combined household income of $125,000 — with a $50,000 downpayment and traditional mortgage financing — a $500,000 budget will open the door to a range of new-home options.

But they’ll have to either move up or move farther out into the GTA and beyond to the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) to access those purchase options

You fell in love. Bought a house. Broke up. Can you force your partner to sell?

Great article in www.TheStar.com 

Falling in love and buying a home together sounds great; but if things fall apart, it can be expensive.

Pascale Vaudrin and her boyfriend Glenn Caron bought a house together in Clarence-Rockland, just east of Ottawa. They took title as joint tenants, meaning that if one died, the property would automatically go to the other.

This January, it was their romance that died and the couple split up. Vaudrin moved out of the house and wanted to sell. Caron continued to live in the home and would not agree to the sale.

Vaudrin hired a lawyer, went to court and brought an application for partition. The application asked the judge to order Caron out of the house and the home sold. That way Vaudrin would be repaid everything she had contributed to the purchase, her lawyer argued, including carrying costs.

Caron represented himself in court. He wanted an adjournment to gather proof of his financial contribution to the house, but said he was not against selling. He also said he would need time to move out.

Caron wanted to use the services of a local do-it-yourself real estate company called Grapevine to sell the home, while Vaudrin wanted to use a traditional Coldwell Banker realtor in Ottawa.

In a decision released on August 19, Master Calum MacLeod of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice ordered Caron to leave the home by November 30 and that the property be listed for $415,000 with Coldwell Banker, not Grapevine. He noted that Grapevine was more of a “do it yourself service,” that would require greater involvement and co-operation between both parties.
