Brampton’s real estate market hit a record last month. According to monthly tracking data from the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), the average price for a Condo in the city hit $401,776. This is the first time that it’s ever crossed past $400,000.
Real Estate in Brampton proved to be impressive in May as the total sales for all homes surpassed 1,000 for the first time since April 2017 with 1,014 units. Compared to May of 2018 which only saw 684 units sold, last month’s sale total was a huge increase by 42.2%.
Townhouse-style condos reached an average price high last month at $498,535 while the average sale price was $723,421 for all types of houses which was the highest average since May 2017.
Detached homes sold a lot more from 372 units in May 2018 to 523 units this year. The average price for a detached unit was $845,085 last month.
“After a sluggish start to 2019, the second quarter appears to be reflecting a positive shift in consumer sentiment toward ownership housing,” says TREB president Garry Bhaura. “However, sales activity continues to be below the longer-term norm, as potential home buyers come to terms with the OSFI mortgage stress test and the fact that listings continue to be constrained relative to sales.”
This was our third property purchase and we have been using Harry’s expertise on all occasions with our mortgage needs. We have found Harry very professional, very thorough and when needed very discreet. He was able to put in action a plan that enabled us to improve our situation. He is non-judgmental and is able to make you feel comfortable and confident. He was very accurate with his paperwork and most importantly he did what he promised at all times.
Thank you again, Harry & Simran, you went above & beyond to help my parents and sister to secure a mortgage at an incredibly low rate. Your knowledge, along with your compassion and patience is above & beyond anyone else. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Harry is outstanding. He was responsive to our needs, he worked hard & fast on a time-crunch! We live in Shelburne and getting the paperwork to them and having to deal with the over the phone was extremely easy and he even came to a place of our convenience to get the paperwork signed. He got us an excellent rate and we are very pleased. If you are looking for someone to help with your mortgage he is your guy!
I am very pleased to write this note in appreciation of what Harry did for me recently. He struck me as a professional who is very knowledgeable and very resourceful. He was very helpful right from the time of our initial contact. I was having difficulty getting a mortgage due to my bruised credit but he reassured me that there is always a way. He’s very warm and friendly and this combined with his professionalism made me very comfortable and less anxious. The mortgage was approved without any difficulty or obstacles. During the process, he was always there, available 24/7 for any questions. Harry is a one-stop shop for anyone shopping for a mortgage.
Harry’s expertise, professionalism and exceptional customer service made my refinancing process timely and efficient. I had a fairly new job and had a challenging credit, Harry consistently provided me great advice on how I can bring up my score. Even after all this he made the deal happen with an A lender! I believe anyone who uses his services will quickly see the value he provides to his customers.
