TORONTO, July 18, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced robust results for the condominium apartment market in the second quarter of 2014. Q2 sales were up by 10.4 per cent compared to the same period in 2013. New listings were up over the same period, but by a lesser 4.4 per cent.
“Condominium apartments represent an affordable entry point into the market for first time buyers. On top of this, some condo properties cater to households looking to move out of their traditional low-rise home, and we are increasingly seeing households choose condos as the place where they will raise a family. This diversity of buyers explains why sales more than kept up with increased listings in the second quarter,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington.
TORONTO, July 4, 2014 – Stepping into his role as President of the Toronto Real Estate Board, Paul Etherington announced a strong increase in residential sales reported through the TorontoMLS system in June. Sales were up by 15.4 per cent year-over-year to 10,180 transactions. New listings were also upcompared to the same period in 2013, but by a lesser annual rate. This means that competition between buyers increased in June.
TORONTO, June 17, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher announced that bothsales and new listings were up substantially during the first 14 days of June 2014 compared to the sameperiod in 2013.
“If the first two weeks of June are any indication, we may be seeing a turnaround in the supply of homesfor sale in the Greater Toronto Area. New listings were up on a year-over-year basis for most major home types in the City of Toronto and surrounding regions. However, sales growth outpaced growth in new listings, which suggests that there is still a lot of pent-up demand yet to be satisfied, so sellers’ market conditions will likely remain in place for the remainder of 2014,” said Ms. Usher.

Home improvement store Lowe’s is launching a new “holoroom” 3D simulator in two Toronto stores this fall. The simulator will allow shoppers to view their renovated room virtually and detect possible issues before a hammer is ever swung.
Using the new holoroom, shoppers will work with pre-built templates to design their perfect room on an iPad, picking everything from paint colour to cupboards. Once they have a design they like, they’ll be able to take the iPad into a physical 20’ by 20’ space where they can to see exactly what they’ve created and make adjustments.
