Real estate plays a very important role while considering the economy of any country and when it comes to the global real estate market, Canada plays a very important role. It is Toronto which has boosted up the real estate market of Canada.
Considered the most sizzling city of Canada, Toronto has a social culture which is beneficial for a perfect real estate market. Toronto is a mix of vibrant culture; beautiful architecture spreads across the city and a great historical background. It is a place which has large amount of educated population. All these plays a vital role and are the major reason behind the immune property rates in Toronto compared to other parts of the world specially during the US crisis. Both the residential and the commercial properties in Toronto have gained a good real estate value.
Real estate in Toronto is said to be the base of the Canadian market especially since past 10 years. It is the pillar strength for the Canadian market. Organizations like CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation) have given rates for the properties in Toronto for the coming years. They use factors like mortgage rates, income, employment and various demographics in which the property is located.
Whenever the rates are higher it would reduce the housing demands and this is the reason why the mortgage rates are having greater impact on the real estate market of Toronto. If the mortgage rates are higher than the price of the house also goes higher and thus it gets difficult for the first time home buyers to buy a condo in Toronto. During past few years it has been observed that the mortgage rates have gone up a bit and due to it even the property rates have been increased in Toronto.
Real estate in Toronto has been successful due to 2 major reasons. The first one is the employment ratio and the second one is the average income of the population. Majority of the Canadian population have a full time job and thus the income would also be more. The country is in general need for the work force. All this factors would contribute towards the increasing need of buying a property. If people are earning more they would have more money to spend somewhere.
The migrations also play an important role in the real estate scenario of Toronto. More and more number of people are migrating there and also it is great tourist destination. This would influence the potential buyers to buy a property at this location so that they could get more returns. But also this contributes towards higher mortgage rates. Foreign investors have purchased a larger number of luxury properties in Canada. In fact these investors are the major buyers of the luxury properties.
