A Look Ahead Into Canadian Markets In The Next Year


Depending on which part of Canada you live in – 2019 is either a year to look forward to or dread!

In Toronto – The growth will be slower, but growth just the same. Very similar to 2018, there will continue to be upward pressure on prices but increased interest rates/mortgage stress testing has added to the lofty growth we’ve seen throughout 2016 to 2017.

In Montreal – Continuing it’s growth as the hottest market in the country (with perhaps the exception of Ottawa) However there will not be a massive price growth, much like Toronto.

In Vancouver – After suffering the difficulty with the B-20 mortgage stress test, the NDP Government increased the foreign buyer tax from 15% to 20%, also introducing/expanding a speculation and vacancy tax. The market will continue to show little activity.

In Calgary – After missing out on the Olympics, it might end up squeezing the city’s economy. However, Calgary is deeply tied to the oil/gas sector and it was the city firmly planted in doldrums.

Are Condo Boards Working With The Grinch?

“No Christmas Trees Allowed?”

Most Condo Boards have begun posting notices around their lobby and in mail rooms “Real Christmas Trees are Not Permitted” “Wreaths and Other Decorations or Door Knockers Are Not to Be Hung on Your Unit Door”.

Does Your Condo Board Allow Christmas Trees?

Many of these notices have logical reasons behind them, fire hazards for example, and imagine hundreds of unit owners trying to proudly fit their 7ft Douglas Fir into the elevators. Talk about a cramped elevator ride – and a messy lobby!

However these bulletins during the Holiday Season can sound like they were written by the Grinch himself.

So how can we get our Holiday Spirit Back into our Condominiums?

Check Out Our 3 Favourite Ways to Add Some Festive Decorations To Your Condo!

  1. For Outdoorsy Types, swap out some shelves with tree branches. You’ll get that authentic Christmas tree feel without the pine-needle mess!

Keep it low enough for the kids to hang their favourite soft ornaments with ribbon or string

One string of lights should do the trick – Have some fun and dump the regular shaped bulbs for star shaped lights!


2. If it’s pretty ornaments that get you into the holiday spirit, a mesh screen is a great place setter for your favourite ones! This gorgeous DIY vintage window frame can display as many  or as little ornaments as you like.

Bonus: Not feeling the spot you set up? Pick up the whole frame (carefully) and move it around to any room you like!

3. A True Artist Cannot *Resist* a Chalk Board Wall! Check out the beautiful scene complete with fireplace and ode to Rudolph.

How are you going to dress up your Condo For The Holidays?

What To Expect From The Canadian Housing Market in 2019

2018 – The year when Canada’s housing market hit the brakes… What will happen in 2019?

The Canadian Real Estate Association sees home sales rebounding a little (2.1 per cent) in 2019 with home prices roughly keeping up with inflation (2.7 per cent). In Ontario, prices will likely climb a little faster (3.3 per cent) and in British Columbia, a bit more slowly.

Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island can also expect modest price gains, while Saskatchewan and Newfoundland Labrador will experience a small dipping. The forecast for Alberta was stable, although that predated the recent oil price plunge.

The big banks expect interest rates to continue to rise between 2.25 per cent & 2.75 per cent by the end of 2019. Todd Schlanger, senior investment strategist at Vanguard Investments Canada says the Canadian economy will likely continue to grow in 2019, albeit at a slower pace than in 2018. 

Rather than a housing collapse, a more likely scenario is one in which home prices stagnate as household incomes slowly catch up. Another factor that might help keep the market stable is that rents are sky-high. This could help sustain the demand from homebuyers. 

Home buyers should be patient, and not count on price gains to make up for negative cash flow. And home sellers should be realistic and not fixate on “old peak prices” as they usually end up having to “chase the market down” watching their asking price gradually fall. If you are keen on selling, you have to be ahead of the market and possibly anticipate future prices declines.
