RBC Chief Sounds Alarm on Flood of Foreign Cash in Canadian Real Estate

Many Canadian Residents can’t qualify for mortgage to buy a home while the foreign investors enjoy profit in Canadian Real Estate Market. Full story below:

  • ‘No thank you,’ McKay says to unproductive capital in homes
  • Intensive bidding is beginning to ease as prices stabilize

Foreign inflows are distorting Canada’s already constrained housing market and aren’t the kind of investment the country needs, the chief executive officer of Royal Bank of Canada said.

 “We do not need foreign capital using Canadian real estate as a piggy bank,”  David McKay, said Tuesday at a bank conference in New York hosted by the Toronto-based lender. “If capital is coming in to sit in a home, unproductively, and is distorting your marketplace and the livelihood of your residents — no thank you.”

McKay, whose bank is Canada’s largest mortgage lender, says he’s supportive of government taxes and other measures targeting foreign buyers, as well as other regulatory efforts to cool the country’s housing market. He’s seeing some impacts from these rule changes, with “a little bit more healthy dynamics.”

 “Demand is down and house prices have been stable,” McKay said. “There’s still intensive bidding, but to a lesser degree.”
Toronto, Canada’s biggest housing market, has been correcting over the past few months amid a slew of regulations put in place to steady booming prices and increasing debt. Toronto home sales fell 35 percent in February from a year earlier, marking the weakest month of sales in nine years, though benchmark prices were up 3.2 percent on the year, according to data released Tuesday by the Toronto Real Estate Board.

Added Gasoline

Canada’s housing market has been on edge this year as mortgage guidelines came into effect, making it harder for prospective buyers to qualify for loans.

A surge of foreign money into Canadian housing had been adding “gasoline” to markets in Vancouver and Toronto, McKay said. He identified a “cocktail of factors” that led to unconstrained growth of Toronto and Vancouver home prices, including a growing population, land constraints, lack of supply and highly stimulative interest rates that caused people to funnel more disposable income into their homes in addition foreign money.

It is going to be an absolutely spectacular feet of engineering and architecture, especially with the famous Norman Foster behind its design. Its location is going to be at the intersection of two buzzing streets in the center of Toronto: 1 Bloor Street West at Yonge and Bloor.

5 things to remember about chattels and fixtures

The buyer notices that the oven is not working when they do their final home visit, 2 days before closing. Can the buyer refuse to close or hold back money to repair the oven? These are just some of the questions that I receive from anxious buyers during the course of a home purchase.

Here are 5 key lessons to remember:

1. The buyer cannot refuse to close a real estate deal if an appliance is not working, or if there are minor damages on the property, unless the contract says so. What the standard real estate contract says is that the buyer can only refuse to close if there has been substantial damage to the property before closing. This would cover a house burning down or a major flood before closing, but would not cover a cracked window or appliance that is not working.

2. The buyer or the buyer lawyer is also not permitted to decide on their own to hold back money to complete any repairs, unless the contract says so. In my experience, sellers rarely agree to any clause in an agreement that permits a buyer to hold back money, for example, to make sure that the seller has completed any required repairs before closing. The problem is that in practice, buyers will typically say that they are not satisfied with the repairs and the holdback money cannot be released to anyone.

3. Here is my advice to settle repair or damage issues: get an estimate for the damage and then have your lawyer send it to the seller lawyer, offering to just settle the matter by the seller either fixing the problem before closing or the seller providing a credit equal to the estimate and the buyer fixes it themselves after closing. I am usually able to work this out with seller lawyers before closing. Unfortunately, if there is no settlement, there is no automatic right to hold back money and the buyer will be required to sue the seller in Small Claims Court after closing to get their money back. This is not a good solution for anyone, because of the time it takes to go to court to resolve this. Be reasonable and solve your problem.

4. What if the oven breaks down 2 days after closing? Unfortunately, the way the contract is written, the buyer does not get an extended warranty. The seller will typically only warrant that appliances and home systems will be working on closing, not after closing. Make sure that even if you are not moving in until a few days after closing that you go to your home immediately after closing and check to make sure that everything is working properly. If anything is not working or there is a damage, have your lawyer immediately contact the seller lawyer the next day about your issue. Also consider buying after sale insurance protection to cover your home systems and appliances. Canadian Home Shield is a company that offers this type of protection at a reasonable price.

5. Little things matter. If your seller is removing a chandelier, make sure they are required to replace it with a standard light fixture so you do not walk into a dark home on closing. If your seller is removing a TV bracket from the wall, make sure that they are required to fill in any holes that are created. Make sure you are to be given 2 full sets of keys, FOBs if a condominium, garage door openers and mail box keys. If the agreement is silent, the seller may only get you one set and it is costly to obtain a duplicate set, in most cases.

When you understand the rules about chattels and fixtures and properly protect yourself, you should be able to minimize any problems that arise after closing.

Condo Pro: The Investment of a Lifetime

By Barbara Lawlor

A substantial percentage of our clients at Baker Real Estate Incorporated buy condos as an investment to add to their financial portfolio. Real estate remains one of the soundest investments anyone can make. In fact, many people feel more comfortable investing in the tangible asset of a condominium rather than stocks and bonds. Historically, those who ride out the lows of occasional real estate cycles do well in the long run. A lot of our investors are international buyers who recognize the value in our spectacular condos. They come from all over the world and from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures.
From their point of view, they know that we have thousands of newcomers to the GTA each year, and they all need a roof over their head. Many begin by renting, so the demand for rental condominium suites promises to remain strong for years to come. We even see bidding wars going on for rental accommodations.
The point is that purchasing a condominium suite with the intention of renting it out is a viable financial strategy. Considering bang for the buck, you get a lot for the price per square foot when you go condo. In addition, condominiums are bound to increase in demand across the GTA as our strong immigration continues and the price of low-rise homes rises even more. Renters know that the amenities and landscaping in a condo will be kept up well, and that with many owners living in the building, their neighbours will take care of their homes. This is a win-win situation.
Here are a few tips for making the most of your decision to buy a condo as an investment.
· Buy early in the marketing/sales process to get the best price.
· Buying early usually means delivery dates are between three and six years, and many buyers make money and earn equity before occupancy.
· Today’s condos are typically built close to transit nodes and have amenities within walking distance, as well as beautiful amenities right in the buildings. Be sure to select a convenient location.
· Most investors select from the builder’s standard finishes, which are gorgeous today. A lot of the new suites come with hardwood or laminate flooring in the main living areas because so many people have allergies today. Think neutral with choosing, as these finishes appeal to a broader target market.
· When you consider the kind of suite to purchase, look carefully at the difference in price between a one-bedroom and one-plus-den. Often, the ability to charge more for rent for a unit with a den outweighs the extra amount at purchase. The den really opens up your market for renters, as it can be used as an office, or a second bedroom with a Murphy bed in it. In essence, these become junior two-bedroom suites. And if the suite has two bathrooms, all the better, especially if a couple students are sharing the space. If your pocketbook can handle only one bedroom, it is still a wise investment choice as a starter rental. These suites are rented are filling a major void in today’s market.
· Be sure to buy from a reputable builder with a track record for success with striking condominiums in amazing locations. I am happy to say that you have excellent choices in Toronto and beyond.
If you choose to live in the condominium you buy, your suite can still be considered an “investment” in two ways: in your quality of life and your peace of mind. Condos save time with so many amenities close by and maintenance taken care of by the Condominium Board. In addition, it is comforting to come home to a building where you know the concierge has a vigilant eye-on-the-street and security monitors for areas like underground parking.
However you slice it, buying a condominium is a great idea for anyone, investor or end-user, of any age – and the sooner, the better!

Gramercy Park Condos Phase I, II

QR formsVIP Registration

A Private Oasis

Amidst the steel and concrete of New York is a beautiful private oasis called Gramercy Park Condos. A tranquil green space designed and built for the exclusive enjoyment of a privileged few.

Inspired by that one-of-a-kind experience, Toronto now has its own Gramercy Park Condos, an exquisite condominium residence designed around an immaculately landscaped private park.

A beautiful space where body, mind and spirit can commune with gorgeous nature. A garden of Eden, where residents can escape the strident demands of a bustling metropolis and enjoy a moment of peace and serenity.

Welcome to Gramercy Park Condos. Your private oasis in the city.

Though tucked away in a serene setting. Gramercy Park Condos is just a short walk from the Wilson subway station. From here, residents are conveniently connected to every part of Toronto. An evening date in the theatre district? Just hop on the subway and you’re there within minutes. Shopping at an east end mall? Let “The Better Way” take you there with ease and comfort. Apart from the subway, you have numerous bus routes, highway 401 and a GO Transit bus stop-all within ten minutes of home. At Gramercy Park, you’re well connected with everything the city has to offer.
