🔥 The townhome is quickly becoming the new detached 🏠 – affordability💰.

Updated: Feb 17, 2021

The Condo market is currently a buyer’s market due to stronger supply, particularly in Toronto and Peel. If you’re a first-time home buyer there's a window of opportunity to get into the market and own a Condo. 🌆

The market for detached homes still has a limited supply creating a highly competitive market with multiple offers resulting in accelerated price growth. This means that if you own a detached, semi-detached, or townhome and are thinking about downsizing or upsizing this is your opportunity to sell for the most amount of money in the quickest time.

The average selling price for all homes combined will eclipse the $1M mark for the first time. With townhomes nearing $1M and detached homes selling for over $1M when looking for affordability, space, and autonomy a townhome is a great option. Looking ahead we’ll see newcomers headed into the GTA which will continue to support the demand for both ownership and rental housing.
