Document Highlights

  • Mortgage Rates—The Bank of Canada has reduced interest rates twice this year—in January and again in July. Mortgage rates are at a historical low and will continue to support the housing market in the near term.
  • Unsold in Toronto—The number of completed and unoccupied condos in the Toronto metropolitan area has doubled from last year to reach a 20-year high—a sign that the market may be saturated.
  • Renovation—Residential renovation investment was especially strong last year, with the largest annual increase since 2007.
