2018 GTA new home sales drop to lowest mark in nearly 20 years

2018 GTA new home sales drop to lowest mark in nearly 20 years

New home sales

Last year saw the lowest total sales in almost 20 years in the GTA new home market, the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) reports.

Overall in 2018, there were 25,161 new homes sold in the GTA, according to Altus Group, BILD’s official source for new home market intelligence, making 2018 the year with the lowest number of new home sales in the GTA since Altus Group started tracking new home data in 2000.

New record low

There were 21,330 condominium units sold in 2018, including those in low-, mid and highrise buildings, stacked townhouses and loft units – down 38 per cent from 2017 but only four per cent less than the 10-year average. Setting a record low since Altus began tracking new home data in 2000, there were only 3,831 single-family homes sold in 2018, including detached, linked and semi-detached houses and townhouses (excluding stacked townhouses). This is down 50 per cent from 2017 and down 74 per cent from the 10-year average.

“A number of factors combined to produce the drop in GTA new home sales in 2018,” says Patricia Arsenault, Altus Group’s executive vice-president, Data Solutions. “More stringent mortgage stress testing, rising interest rates and lack of single-family product affordable to a broader range of buyers all played a role. As well, the record new condo apartment sales in 2017 brought forward some demand that would otherwise have occurred in 2018.”

In December, the benchmark price for new condos was $796,815, up 11.2 per cent over the last 12 months. The benchmark price for single-family homes was $1.14 million, down 6.7 per cent over the last 12 months.

Out of balance

“From our point of view, the market is out of balance,” says David Wilkes, BILD president and CEO. “We must continue to work with all levels of government to ensure that policies don’t artificially price consumers out of the market.

“We commend the provincial government for taking action toward increasing housing supply in Ontario,” Wilkes adds. “We join other industry groups in calling on the federal government to revisit the stress test and allow a longer amortization period for first-time buyers. And we look forward to working with our municipal partners on removing barriers to development such as excessive red tape and outdated bylaws.”

At the end of December, there were 15,768 new homes available for purchase, comprised of 10,687 condominium units and 5,081 single-family homes. Remaining inventory includes units in preconstruction projects, in projects currently under construction, and in completed buildings.

Building New Communities how architects support city builders

Latest News


Building New Communities how architects support city builders

With the lack of affordable housing dominating the headlines, there’s a renewed awareness, focus and energy to address this urgent issue. Everyone agrees that we want cities where people of all ages, stages and income levels can live. The bigger question is how can we as architects support city builders and developers to collectively achieve this?

The answer is not just in building new housing, but rather, the right type of housing. Somewhere between the two extremes of detached single family homes (which take up large footprints in our growing cities) and highrise multi-residential towers, (which may lack community spaces and amenities desired by families) is the need for a new housing type. The solution lies in filling in urban spaces with missing middle housing.

I’ve long advocated for the need to build more missing middle housing. Cities need thoughtful architectural design solutions that use land and space efficiently. We must create dense, transit-oriented, pedestrian- friendly, complete communities for a range of people and families across the income spectrum. The opportunities are endless for this new approach to development, not only in established neighbourhoods but in former industrial sites, surplus schools and underused shopping malls near transit.

Building for the missing middle means building medium-density, low-impact buildings designed in sync with the needs of the local community. Think small apartment blocks, stacked townhouses, multiplexes, courtyard apartments and other building types ranging from three to six storeys, with proximity to parks, greenspaces, schools and various commercial and community amenities.

It’s encouraging that we’re seeing more examples of these projects across the GTA and Ontario. I’m proud that our firm has helped realize many of them. A recent project we undertook for Mattamy Homes in northeast Markham illustrates how missing middle development is possible.

Our vision for Cornell Centre was to create a sense of place where none existed before. Formerly, the site was used for agriculture. Our challenge was to create a memorable place for residents and visitors that met the client’s financial goals, local planning guidelines and reflected the latest in urban design principles.

With the first phase scheduled for completion in Q1 of 2019, residents and visitors will greeted by a strong corner marker – it will serve as an indoor/outdoor amenity and gathering space for residents, while creating an appealing gateway to the Village of Cornell in Markham. Set over 1.5 acres, the site features 135 units in a six-storey condominium and 10 3.5-storey townhomes. An additional 107 units and six townhomes are planned to be built in the second phase. The condominiums feature ground floor commercial units that blend into the overall design.

A focal point for the community, Cornell Centre serves as an entry to the lowrise townhouse community immediately north and east of the site, while addressing the urban scale of Bur Oak and its connections to contemporary community buildings such as Markham Stouffville Hospital and the Cornell Community Centre and Library. The development’s highly desirable location fosters new opportunities for employees that can now reside in walking distance to work.

Sustainability and active transportation initiatives

Sustainability is always top of mind at Q4A, so we integrated recycled and renewable source materials wherever possible. We incorporated inexpensive, wood frame construction made of renewable organic building materials. The mechanical and electrical systems are 15 per cent more efficient than OBC requirements. Water efficient fixtures reduce water consumption by 30 per cent. Overall, the project meets LEED standards and exceeds Ontario Building Code requirements.

By connecting residents to transportation and open green spaces, we’re enabling and encouraging wider pedestrian use for walkers, runners and cyclists. Fifty per cent of the site’s landscaped areas feature native plantings.

The community is already receiving accolades, with Money Sense recently ranking Cornell Centre as one of the GTA’s top 25 neighbourhoods for affordability. At Q4 Architects, we believe that building more midrise homes and communities is one of the most positive ways to future-proof our cities. If communities embrace missing middle housing typologies, we can cater to diverse demographics by creating and transforming neighbourhoods into vibrant, livable and complete communities.

New home buying opportunities abound in Oshawa and Durham Region

New home buying opportunities abound in Oshawa and Durham Region

Ironwood Towns in North Oshawa by Podium Developments and Urban Capital

Despite the bad news this week that General Motors Canada plans to close assembly operations in Oshawa, there are some good new home buying opportunities in the city and elsewhere in Durham Region.

As various levels of government and the Unifor trade union vow to somehow keep the plant open or otherwise deal with the fallout of the decision, the housing sector in Oshawa is expected to shift into a buyers’ market.

That could mean deals for buyers in a market where home prices have already been under pressure.

For those looking to buy a new home, know that there are still plenty of good opportunities in Oshawa and surrounding area.

First, let’s look at recent new home buying activity in the area, courtesy of statistics from Altus Group, theofficial source for market intelligence for the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD).

 

Total new home sales, units

Oshawa Durham Region
Annual
2013          682       2,376
2014       1,108       3,130
2015          971       3,433
2016       1,149       5,344
2017          490       2,385
Jan-Oct
2017          483       2,262
2018            83       1,065

Naturally, the GM news is a sensitive topic to an industry such as home building, where companies dedicate years to planning and construction development projects. So don’t expect a comment any time soon from BILD, the voice of home builders in the GTA, or individual companies.

Might developers at some point offer deals – be they discounts or upgrades – in order to move an unsold inventory in a market not feeling the strongest at the moment?

It never hurts to ask.

Pent-up demand for townhomes building in the GTA

Latest News


Pent-up demand for townhomes building in the GTA

Townhomes

Condos may be the choice for many in the increasingly expensive GTA, but not everyone wants to live in a box in the sky. More and more new home buyers are looking for affordable lowrise options such as townhomes. Emphasis on the word affordable.

The problem? The supply just isn’t there – and the pent-up demand is growing.

Appealing especially to young families, townhomes provide more space and flexibility than condos, and generally are far more affordable than single-family homes.

“Both stacked (townhomes) and (row) townhouses form a key component of the Missing Middle – the built forms between high-density condo and low-density single-family housing,” Matthew Boukall, vice-president, product management, Data Solutions at Altus Group, told Homes Publishing.

Altus recently studied the sector for one of its regular housing reports, surmising that townhomes play an increasingly important role in in the new home sector, not just in the GTA but across Canada.

In the GTA, new townhouse sales have plummeted in the past two years – both in absolute terms and as a percentage of total new home sales (to just seven per cent of the total in the first half of 2018), Altus says.

GTA Starts

Affordability and availability remain an issue.

In the GTA, the key challenge to supplying this built form has been finding land with the right entitlements to allow and support this construction, Altus reports. Much of the land along Toronto streets support higher density condo product or is priced at a level which encourages rezoning to support this density.

“What can support more townhouse development is allowing rezoning of the land between the existing single-family communities and the corridors for more mid-density development,” Boukall says.

Although townhouse land (medium density) sales in 2017 were actually up over 2016, they are trending lower in 2018. Part of the problem is a lengthy approval process. “Year to date in Toronto, we have only tracked five approved townhouse projects, representing less than 350 units,” says Boukall. “Obviously, we need more product to meet the market demand. The positive note is that developers are proposing more product, with almost 1,500 new units applied for in 2018.”

GTA Townhouse sales

STACKED TOWNHOMES

Stacked townhouses, in which one row of townhouse units is stacked on top of another, provide a more affordable option to single-family homes, given higher densities. They also offer many of the appealing aspects of condominiums, but without living in a highrise environment.

However, they still play a relatively smaller role than traditional townhouses in the overall townhouse arena, Altus says.

In the Vancouver market, for example, new stacked townhouse units accounted for slightly more than 200 sales on average per year in 2015-17 – about six per cent of all new townhouse sales.

GTA Stacked

In the GTA, where stacked townhouses have made a larger dent, they remain a niche segment, accounting for about one in five new townhouse sales in recent years.

Part of the challenge with stacked townhouses versus rowhomes are those similar to condominium apartments – longer planning and construction timelines, and other residences adjacent on all sides

Both housing types will play an important role throughout the GTA in the future, but stacked townhouses are expected to become more popular given the better affordability provided by the higher density housing type.

“That said,” Boukall adds, “traditional row townhouses are the more common housing type in the GTA and as such, account for more sales compared to the stacked townhouse product. Row townhouse product has been accounting for a growing share of the single-family new homes sales in the GTA, currently accounting for 42 per cent of the total single-family sales activity in the GTA.”

WHERE IN THE GTA?

So, prospective GTA new home buyers, which areas hold the most promise in terms of future townhome availability?

While townhouses are expected to remain a popular housing option throughout the GTA, both Toronto and the York region share the most medium density land activity in the region, and should see increased development activity as a result in 2019 and beyond.

“The Peel region, most notably Brampton, is the most active for stacked and row townhouse sales in 2018 and should continue to see demand supported by an available land supply and comparably affordable prices,” says Boukall.

GTA condo sales and prices hit record levels

Latest News


GTA condo sales and prices hit record levels

Condo TO web

With home prices seemingly forever on the rise, there is only one way for many GTA homebuyers to go – up, as in into highrise condos and other multi-family housing options.

Fueled largely by affordability – and the lack thereof in lowrise homes – resale condominium apartments and townhomes in the GTA now represents almost 37 per cent of total residential sales by the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), up from 30 per cent in 2013, according to a new report by ReMax of Ontario-Atlantic Canada Region.

ReMax report

Momentum has also been reflected in resale condominium values, which is the only property segment that held up against the 2017 market correction, ReMax says.

The average price of a condominium unit increased almost eight per cent to $551,761 between January and October 2018, up from $512,552 during the same period in 2017.

Townhomes were slightly ahead of last year’s pace, with values hovering at $571,058, compared to $568,165 in 2017. Prices of freehold properties, including single-detached, semi-detached, attached/row/townhouse and linked townhomes are all down year-over-year.

AFFORDABILITY KEY ATTRACTION

“The condominium lifestyle continues to resonate with buyers in the Greater Toronto Area for a number of reasons,” says Christopher Alexander, executive vice-president and regional director, ReMax of Ontario-Atlantic Canada Region. “While the affordability aspect is first and foremost, we’ve also a seen strong investor presence in recent years.”

Alexander cites a recent report by Urbanation and CIBC, which found that investors who bought condominiums for the purpose of renting accounted for 48 per cent of all newly completed units in the GTA in 2017. “The income potential, given today’s tight rental market, in addition to the overall return on investment, has been a serious draw for real estate investors.”

Immigration, population growth and lifestyle choices have also contributed to the uptick in demand for condo apartments and townhomes. Aging infrastructure, combined with a lack of transportation alternatives, longer commute times and the environmental component – with efforts to reduce carbon footprint – have all played a role in buyers choosing condominiums in Toronto proper that are close to both work and play, Alexander says.

DOWNTOWN THE CHOICE LOCATION

The most popular area for condominium sales remains the downtown core, with one in every five condominiums (21.9 per cent) sold in the area bordered by Bloor Street to the north, the lakeshore to the south, the Don Valley Parkway to the east and just past Dovercourt Road in the west.

“In spite of a proliferation of condominium developments over the past decade, supply and demand issues continue to persist in the core,” says Alexander. “Limited inventory continues to place substantial upward pressure on prices, with fewer affordable housing options available– and that includes condominium rentals.”

Average resale prices hover at $700,000 for condo units, with new construction closing in on $1,000 per sq. ft.

PROXIMITY TO TRANSIT

“Higher prices in the core are prompting buyers to consider condominium communities farther afield,” says Alexander. “New construction along subway lines to the north, east and west are exceptionally popular, especially with first-time buyers. Yonge Street north of Hwy. 401 comes to mind, as well as the Sheppard line between Bayview Avenue and Leslie Street. Combined, these two areas represent approximately 10 per cent of total resale condominium sales to date and continue to experience growth.”

Mississauga is the GTA’s second most popular destination for condominium living, accounting for 14 per cent of condominium sales so far this year.

Almost 51 per cent of condominium sales in the GTA occur under the $500,000 price point, but affordability is being threatened as builders and developers face skyrocketing construction costs and a land crunch within the GTA, and struggle to maintain the status quo, ReMax says.

“The necessity to ‘build up’ has never been more prevalent in a city that has seen its population climb from one census to the next,” says Alexander. “To prevent the run-up we’ve seen in housing values in the past, all levels of government must work together with developers to streamline the building process. We need to create more affordable GTA housing options that can accommodate buyers and renters at every price point.”

THE TOWNHOME OPTION

These trends generally align with the findings of another report, from Altus Group. Lack of affordability and availability of single-family new homes has buyers increasingly looking to townhomes as a lowrise home option. But supply issues in this category have seen new townhouse sales plummet in the past two years, in both absolute terms and as a percentage of total new home sales – just seven per cent of the total in the first half of 2018.

Ironwood Towns by Podium Developments now open in North Oshawa

Ironwood

By Wayne Karl

Podium Developments and Building Capital have opened Ironwood Towns, a new community located just north of Simcoe Street North and Taunton Road in North Oshawa.

This private 11-acre property nestled between Camp Samac and Oshawa Creek, backs onto hundreds of acres of valley land, forest and stream, and is minutes to Cedar Valley Conservation Area, Centennial Park and Somerset Park. Ironwood is also conveniently close to public transportation options, shopping, dining and entertainment venues. The lifestyle offered in this community is one of nature and ease. It’s a seven-minute drive to Hwy. 407 and 14 minutes to Hwy. 401. Residents can also walk to the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in 10 minutes.

Situated on a private street, the 125 three- and four-bedroom contemporary freehold towns feature a private garage and driveway with two-car parking, and either a backyard or rooftop terrace. Architecture introduces a clean, modern addition to the neighbourhood.

With this first phase, 40 units are being released across three different models. Phase two is targeted for spring 2019 or earlier, if sales go well.

PRIVATE PARK

Well-planned, beautifully appointed, open-concept interiors receive generous natural light from large windows scattered over three full floors of living space. Residents will enjoy exclusive access to a private landscaped three-acre park, gated off-leash dog park, children’s playground, walking path, tobogganing hill and a sports field with a seasonal ice rink, all backing onto the protected acres of ravine lands. There’s even an area residents can share garden space with other members of the community, growing their own fresh vegetables.

Ironwood2

Units measure from about 1,700 to 1,800 sq. ft., with prices from the mid-$500,000s. All units have a garage and a driveway space for parking, with either arooftop terrace or private backyard, depending on the model. Backyards come with deck and fencing, small area for private garden and a direct walkoff from the main living floor. A maintenance fee of approximately $150 per month covers everyday upkeep such as landscaping and snow removal.

Ironwood Towns represents something of a transitionary project forPodium and Building Capital, since they have mostly collaborated on student housing to date. The partners recently opened University Studios in Oshawa – an eight-storey, mixed-use student housing project.

URBAN AND SUBURBAN

“The main concept (at Ironwood) is a combination of urban and suburban living,” says Christian Huggett, vice-president of development for Podium. “We’ve kind of brought condo finishes to suburban ideas… and tried to step it up from ‘builder basic’ finishings.”

The Ironwood Towns Presentation Centre is now open for preview registrations, at 1700 Simcoe St. N., Unit B. Hours are Monday to Wednesday noon to 6 p.m.; Thursday 2 to 8 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
