New Toronto condo sales decline in Q3 2012 due to lack of new launches

There were 3,317 new condominium apartment sales in Toronto in Q3 2012 according to the new Urbanationmarket overview released today.

This represents a 30 per cent decrease from the second quarter figure.

“With slowing sales and a record level of unsold inventory in the market in the second quarter, condominium developers reacted quickly by delaying their project launches, especially in the ‘416’ area,” explained Ben Myers, Urbanation’s Executive Vice President, in a press release.

“Just five projects launched in Toronto in Q3-2012, as developers choose to review their pricing assumptions and unit mix.”

The report also noted the average price of an unsold unit in the Toronto CMA  is sitting at $573 per square foot, an increase of 2 per cent year-over-year. In Toronto proper, the price was $670 per square foot, up from $668 a year ago.

The low number of new launches led to a decrease in unsold inventory in the Toronto CMA from a record high 18,123 in Q2 2012 to 17,182 in Q3.

How will the Toronto market fare in Q4? We’ll have to wait until the new year to find out the official numbers.

Seven costly mistakes of property investment

Would-be buyers are often scared by hellish income property stories. But if you want to stay out of property purgatory, writes investment expert Paul Kondakos, avoid the following 7 Deadly Sins of income investing:

1. Poor Property Selection – This one can weigh on anyone’s soul as purchasing the wrong investment property can have long lasting repercussions that can range from high vacancy rates to exorbitant maintenance/repair costs. You need to ensure that you educate yourself and do your homework before you jump into any investment. Start by learning the criteria that make for a good income property investment.

2. Lazy Expense Tracking – Income property investing is a business, and as such, you need to be doing one of two things. Increasing revenue or decreasing expenses. Failure to track expenses is a costly mistake as patterns may reveal opportunities for cost savings. One such example is utilities which are one of the biggest expenses in operating an investment property. Often times water leaks can go undetected and cost BIG money. Simply tracking your bills will alert you to any activity that is out of the norm and allow you to act immediately.

3. Inadequate Tenant Screening – If you want to truly experience income property Hell don’t do any tenant screening at all. This is the one of the biggest sins you can commit as a property owner as you leave yourself open to unpaid rent, property damage, disruption of other tenants, additional unwelcomed tenants and a whole slew of other bad things which can cost thousands of dollars. To avoid this certain Hell, ensure you (A) Check Credit (B} Check Employment References and Pay Stub (C) Check Previous Landlord References (D) Check Personal References (E) Check Photo ID and (F) Ensure you Get First and Last Month’s Rent Up-Front.

4. Negligent Superintendent Supervision – Failure to supervise can be a costly mistake as the downside can range from missed efficiencies or savings opportunities to outright fraud or theft. No matter how great your superintendent or property manager, you still need to actively manage them as no one has your best interests at heart like you do. To ensure everyone is on the same page have regular meetings with your superintendent or property manager to review repairs, expenses, tenants and protocol.

5. Sloppy Accounting – Not keeping track of your income and expenses will not only put you on a fast track towards major headaches at tax time, it will leave you in the dark about potential inefficiencies and costs savings opportunities. Using an accounting program such as Quick books or a simple Excel spreadsheet will help keep you out of CRA’s Inferno.

6. Deferred Property Maintenance/Repairs – There is a special place reserved in Hell for the Slum lord. This one is a double whammy for those that are eager to experience income property Hell. While no one likes to shell out money for maintenance and repairs, failure to do so will inevitably lead to 2 other certainties (A) good tenants will leave and (B} repair and maintenance expenses will begin to grow exponentially the longer they are ignored. Keep your inner Slum lord at bay by putting aside funds to carry out regular maintenance and repairs.

7. Complacency on Rents – As mentioned in Sin #2 (Lazy Expense Tracking), income property investing is a business. Failure to keep up with going market rents will keep you from achieving maximum potential income (and keep you from maximizing the market value of your income property). Ensure that rent increase notifications are being handed out every anniversary as per the prescribed guidelines and that any newly vacant units are being priced according to going market rents.

Avoid these 7 Deadly Sins of income property investing and you will find that income property investing can be a heavenly experience. Source: Canadian Real Estate Wealth

Condo Prices Grow at Moderate Pace in Q2

Condo Prices Grow at Moderate Pace in Q2

July 18, 2012Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 6,435 condominium apartment transactions during the second quarter of 2012 – down by 2.6 per cent compared to 6,609 transactions reported in the second quarter of 2011. New listings for condominium apartments were up substantially on a year-over-year basis, climbing by 19 per cent in comparison to 2011.

“The condominium apartment market has been the best-supplied market segment in the GTA this year. Many condominium projects have completed over the past year and this has resulted in a substantial increase in listings and ultimately more choice for buyers,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Ann Hannah. “The greater degree of choice in the condo market translated into a moderate rate of price growth compared to what was experienced in the low-rise market segment.”

The average price for second quarter condominium apartment sales was $342,212, representing a 3.2 per cent increase over the same period in 2011.

“Sellers seemed to be well-aware of condo market conditions in the second quarter. On average, units were priced in line with buyer expectations, with apartments selling for 98 per cent of the asking price in less than a month’s time,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis. 6,435 6,609 Second Quarter 2012 Second Quarter 2011
