Single And Home Hunting In Toronto

Are you an independent, self-fulfilled, pro-solo person? Single households are on the rise in Canada. Whether from divorce, death, or by choice, single households now outnumber other demographic groups. According to the most recent census from Stats Canada, single households now comprise just over 28 per cent of the population. This figure has doubled in the last 35 years. And another telling fact - singletons are incredibly diverse - ranging in age, occupation and sex. Stats Canada has also found the rate of single households has increased most rapidly in the age group of 35 to 64 years. There are several associated trends that accompany an increase in singletons. Canadian Housing has not only evolved over time to match tastes, trends, and technology, but also to reflect socio-economic and demographic shifts.

Dear Urbaneer: How Can Millennials Possibly Afford To Buy Real Estate?

There is no question there are abundant challenges for millennials hoping to own a home in a pricey market like Toronto. There appear to be obstacles seemingly coming from all angles. Millennials are heavily laden with student debt that previous generations haven’t had to deal with to the same degree, which is already taking a bite out of their cash flow. This, in turn, is creating challenges in being able to amass the savings needed for even the minimum down payment. There's also the problem with a lack of available supply, given statistics show more and more Baby Boomers are choosing to stay in their homes and age-in-place, which is causing a backlog in the property ladder progression. And as if all of this wasn’t challenging enough, the introduction of more stringent lending policies have placed another potential barrier in the way of home ownership. It really does seem like the housing odds are stacked against the millennials.

June 2019 - Home Of The Month - Wallace Emerson

This month's tale focuses on the purchase by the daughter of Urbaneer clients, who was ready to take the homeownership plunge and buy her first dwelling in Toronto. Given she had witnessed first-hand her parents efforts to secure property near Bloor and Christie two-years-earlier, she was already primed for the intensity endemic to specific freehold housing properties in the central core of the city. Trust me, sleuthing for a house in this price point requires you to be fully committed to dropping whatever you're doing to see a house within hours of it coming to market. You also have to become accustomed to having your realtor gently tell you that the dwelling listed for $999,000 is likely to spike into a range that is beyond your budget, and that there will be times when you're so exhausted and fatigued from being consistently knocked out in the bidding war you will want to give up.
