Shelley Mann

Real Estate Board President

Season’s Greetings A Message from Victoria Real Estate Board President Shelley Mann On behalf of the REALTORS® of Greater Victoria, I wish you Happy Holidays. Real Estate continues to play a leading role in the economic vitality of our community and the province. Despite a slow start to the year, due in part to the Federal government’s reduction in amortization periods, sales picked up in May and slowly climbed for the balance of 2013. Despite this, prices have remained flat or slightly decreased in most areas. In November 2013, the Victoria Real Estate Board introduced the MLS® Home Price Index to more accurately report on home sales price trends. Watch for continued commentary in this publication on this leading indicator. You may also visit us on the web, Facebook and Twitter for regular updates. I want to take this opportunity to thank the community of Greater Victoria for both your continued business and your tremendous support of our community efforts. Over the past 12 months, the Board has contributed over $40,000 to local non-profits, including just under $16,595 to our Charity of the Year, The Mustard Seed Family Centre, and $12,500 to local food banks and $5,000 to Need2 Youth Suicide Prevention. I wish you all the blessings of this holiday season, and a happy, healthy New Year. Sincerely, Shelley Mann President

Picking The Right

Neighbourhood You have decided to buy a home. You've analyzed your budget, talked to a REALTOR® and figured out what kind of house you want. But, the most important step may have been left until last: picking the right neighbourhood. Choosing not only the proper community, but also the right neighbourhood, can have a tremendous impact on your family's happiness and the value of your investment. The first thing many people do when considering a move is drive around various communities gaining a sense of which areas they like. Buyers find out how close the major highways are and if the neighbours keep their yards tidy. Most will make sure they know the location of the closest mall. But what about public transit, colleges, schools, libraries, parks, recreation centres and fire or ambulance stations? Is the local police station close to your prospective neighbourhood? All of these factors can make or break a decision to buy a certain property. Your REALTOR® can provide you with a wealth of general information on different neighbourhoods. For detailed information, it's a good idea to contact the appropriate agency directly.

2014 OUTLOOK FOR CANADIAN HOUSING MARKET GOOD AS SALES AND PRICES REACH NEW RECORDS The number of homes sold in Canada this year is expected to match or exceed 2012 levels in two thirds of markets with nationally sales reaching a five year high, according to the latest outlook report. The price of an average Canadian home is forecast to climb to $380,000, also a new record, says the RE/MAX Housing Market Outlook 2014 which examined trends and developments in 25 major centres across the country. ‘Housing values have been incredibly stable this year, propped up by relatively balanced market conditions. Ontario-Atlantic Canada markets showed steady price appreciation throughout the year, with Hamilton-Burlington, Barrie and District, St. John’s and the Greater Toronto Area all reporting increases of 5% or more in 2013,’ said Gurinder Sandhu, executive vice president and regional director RE/MAX Ontario-Atlantic Canada. He pointed out that while the national picture has been quite rosy in terms of sales activity, the regional performance has been more varied, particularly in Atlantic Canada and although East Coast sales have softened over last year’s level the region is poised for future growth. ‘Solid economic performance, low interest rates, and rising consumer confidence will all factor into next year’s outlook. The momentum that emerged in most residential housing markets in the final half of 2013 is expected to spill over into 2014,’ explained Sandhu. ‘Sales and average price are on an upward trajectory, with the number of homes changing hands across Canada forecast to climb to 475,000, while average price is expected to edge higher, settling at $390,000 by the end of 2014,’ he added. The report predicts that Halifax-Dartmouth is expected to lead in terms of percentage increases in projected housing sales. Hamilton-Burlington, Barrie and District, Kingston and Area, and WindsorEssex are expected to round out the top five performances in Ontario-Atlantic Canada. The Greater Toronto Area is expected to lead the country in terms of percentage increase in average price, followed by St. John’s, Hamilton-Burlington, Kingston and Area, and Windsor-Essex. ‘The framework is now in place to support steady and sustainable growth in Canadian housing markets over the next few years. After several rounds of mortgage tightening, buyers are more realistic in their pursuits. Most are coming to the table better qualified than ever before. Given underlying fundamentals, the future looks bright for residential real estate in Canada,’ said Sandhu. ‘Canadian home buyers remain savvy with a long term mindset that bodes well for stability. Yet, they also value progress, and we expect that to translate again in 2014. Equity gains should continue to result in tangible leaps to larger homes or better neighbourhoods, as well as a growing wave of renovation and revitalization. Stock market performance is also expected to bolster activity, as paper wealth is converted to material wealth,’ he added.
