One housing bubble down, one to go: Rosenberg
Vancouver’s housing bubble has burst, but Toronto’s remains “as hot as the weather,” says Gluskin Sheff chief economist David Rosenberg.
In a note Wednesday entitled Tale of two cities, Rosenberg said Vancouver real estate has cooled significantly, and is now showing signs of turning into a buyers’ market.
Sales of existing homes in Vancouver sank 15.5% from a year ago May, with the sales for the month coming in the lowest for any May since 2001. At the same time the active inventory backlog surged 16.8% and new listings were up 14.4% from a year ago.
“The supply-demand balance showed the increasing emergence of a buyer’s market taking hold, with average selling prices for single-family homes deflating year-on-year,” Rosenberg said.
