What is the Twitter for Canada Housing Market?
Real Estate Market
Canadian housing has reached its previous peak and entered a period of declining house prices, reduced home sales, and generally weaker market conditions. This change was precipitated by tightening interest rates by the Bank of Canada and falling affordability; its effects have been particularly marked in overvalued markets like Toronto and Vancouver, where mortgage rates have significantly increased since earlier peaks were reached.
As a result, prospective buyers are becoming more wary and less inclined to purchase. New listings have declined dramatically while sales activity has fallen significantly – combined with rising mortgage interest rates, this environment could eventually cause a dramatic reduction in national median house prices.
However, factors like a slowing economy, falling interest rates, strong job markets, increased household savings, and immigration all work to soften the effects of market corrections and prevent complete market crashes. We anticipate reaching the bottom in Spring 2023.
Recent evidence indicates prospective buyers have begun re-engaging in the housing market. For instance, the MLS benchmark price – which tracks average home prices across the nation – rose slightly between February and March; the sales-to-new listings ratio increased to 63.5 percent – its highest reading in more than one year due to less inventory coming on to market and an uptick in sales activity.

Canada’s two-year ban on foreign buyers of residential property was enacted on Jan. 1. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ran his party on the idea that Canada’s desirability attracted profiteers and investors who bought homes as investments, pushing prices out of reach of most local people.
But this ban is creating considerable confusion and pain among real estate professionals who specialize in Canada, yet now find themselves without anywhere to turn. Real estate professionals specializing in Canadian real estate know it intimately; those with years of experience building inventory and connections will be most heavily affected. Meanwhile, Canadians hoping to enter the housing market but unable to due to high prices also are feeling adversely impacted by this decision.
