RE/MAX 2016 Spotlight on Luxury Properties Report

Check out the RE/MAX 2016 Spotlight on Luxury Report! 

Sales of homes priced over $1 million were up year-over-year in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Victoria and Oakville in the rst nine months of 2016. In the Greater Toronto Area and Vancouver, Canada’s largest high-end housing markets, sales of $3 million-plus homes saw signi cant increases, of 86 per cent in the GTA and 41 per cent in Vancouver.

While Vancouver sales of $1 million properties were up by three per cent overall, single-family home sales in that range declined by seven per cent year-over-year. One factor contributing to this decrease is the foreign buyer tax implemented by the provincial government in August, which has resulted in slowing demand for single-family detached homes from o -shore buyers. Additionally, higher inventory of luxury homes may be lessening buyers’ sense of urgency.
