Mini Maxi. Real Estate Prices in Toronto GTA.

We all understand that even in those moments when the market is clearly moving in one direction in different areas of our metropolis, prices change in different ways. If we talk about what happened with Toronto GTA Real Estate in 2017, it gets even worse, because sometimes the market moved in absolutely opposite directions. So it became interesting to me, how unevenly had the prices changed? Based on this, a question arises – how different is the price for the same types of real estate in Toronto GTA.

Therefore, I bring to your attention a blog called “Mini Maxi”. You will find out where are the most expensive and cheapest apartments in our metropolis, as well as which areas of Toronto GTA changed most in price in 2017.

TREB MLS Home Price Index ( HPI ) Benchmark

In order to find out how much a similar property can vary depending on its location, I turned to the statistics prepared by TREB (Toronto Real Estate Board). In particular to the TREB MLS HPI Benchmark. HPI (Home Price Index) is an indicator that takes into account not only the price of a real estate object and its type, but also some characteristics of this property. Among these characteristics, you can distinguish such as the area square footage, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, garage, age of the structure, location, etc. and compares this average type of real estate with the actually sold. This allows you to smooth out the current situation, when too cheap or too expensive real estate objects were sold, while having a significant impact on statistics.

Well, how do you like such data? Personally for me, it was very unexpected. I always said that the real estate market in Toronto GTA, is developing unevenly and it is therefore very important to conduct analysis and view statistics, not relying solely on your perception. But that same segment could and fall by 10% and grow by 56%, depending on the area …

This is for when people say – “Oh, do not tell me and show your statistics. It’s all a fake, I can see with my own eyes ….” Yet I don’t think that someone with their own eyes sees 87,000 sales a year.

Good luck to all!
