Condominium Real Estate Data – Qtr4/20 | Condo Mania

Real estate data shows a housing market churning in deep turmoil. Do you think buyers and renters have the upper hand during the pandemic?

Welcome to the Ontario condominium real estate data segment of my condo home library, the Condorary.

You may agree that most investment analysis seems to cover real estate in Canada as a whole excluding condominium housing. The Ontario outlook is mainly on the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ottawa where the largest numbers of condominiums are found. You might find searching the real estate listings in other provincial areas can act as reasonable housing market guidelines.

Analysis by Shaun Hildebrand

Vacancy Rates Rise While Rents Continue to Decline

Urbanation’s survey of newer purpose-built rental apartment projects that have been completed in the GTA since 2005 reported a vacancy rate of 2.4% in Q3-2020, which was three times higher than in Q3-2019 (0.8%) and the first time vacancy rates surpassed 2% in the GTA in 10 years. Within the former City of Toronto (mainly representing the downtown and midtown markets), vacancy rates increased to 2.8% from 0.7% a year ago.
