The Toronto Real Estate Board announced that there were 8,547 home sales in the month of November 2016. This result was a 16.5 per cent increase compared to November 2015. For the region as a whole, sales were up on a year-over-year basis for all major home types. The strongest annual rates of sales growth were experienced for the townhouse and condominium apartment segments.
Home buying activity remained strong across all market segments in November. However, many would-be home buyers continued to be frustrated by the lack of listings, as annual sales growth once again outstripped growth in new listings. Seller's market conditions translated into robust rates of price growth.
The MLS Home Price Index Composite Benchmark was up by 20.3 per cent compared to November 2015. The average selling price at $776,684 was up by 22.7 per cent on a year-over-year basis.
Recent policy initiatives seeking to address strong home price growth have focused on demand. Going forward, more emphasis needs to be placed on solutions to alleviate the lack of inventory for all home types, especially in the low-rise market segments.

Customer Satisfaction Response: "We met Elvis roughly 6 years ago when we purchased our first home in Alliston. We immediately loved his charisma, knowledge and experience that he had in the real estate market. He was so approachable that after 6 years, and 5 homes later, we now consider him family.
Although he is from the Mississauga area, we used him for our most recent sale of our home in Bolton which got us over asking price within 48 hours! Thank you for helping us find our final dream home and we look forward to always hearing from you!" - V. Calamia
One thing is for sure; we all know that we need a roof over our head.In most peoples case they end up having to pay either Rent for this roof or a Mortgage payment, unless of course you have a rich family that can offer you FREE or Reduced Rent. The point is, we ALL have to pay for a roof over our heads. Real Estate has always been considered a Long-Term Investment. The real question you need to ask yourself; do I really want to pay RENT for the rest of my life?
