The Motria Group's Market Blog: Many prime neighbourhoods in Toronto are designated Heritage

Monday Feb 11th, 2019

    Many prime neighbourhoods in Toronto are designated Heritage in one form or another and other neighbourhoods are thinking about it. This is a complex issue.

China’s conflict with Canada will make purchases by Chinese buyers much more difficult. China is not allowing large conversions of Chinese Yuan to Canadian dollars.

  Standstill between buyers and sellers in many neighbourhoods. Who is going to give in first? We have had a number of situations where buyers are offering a certain price which is lower than sellers want to take and sellers are holding firm. However, buyers have more options now and they know if they wait, at some point someone will take a lower price. Some sellers are feeling the downward pressure and are worried that the next offer may be lower and they are settling. Hence, the... [read more]
