The Teranet–National Bank House Price Index™ ticked down 0.1% in February

In February the Teranet–National Bank National Composite House Price Index(tm)  retreated 0.1% from the previous month, following December and January rises that had interrupted a downtrend. It was the first February decline since 2013. The index was up in only three of the 11 metropolitan markets surveyed, the fewest since October 2014: Vancouver (+0.4%), Hamilton […]

Vancouver again drove the Composite in January

OPINION: Just like it did the prior month, Vancouver drove the Composite index in January – without Vancouver, the Composite index would have retreated for a fifth month in a row (top chart). On a y/y basis, Vancouver’s index for condos surged 23.0%, while the index for other types of dwellings rose 13.5%. The fact is that Vancouver’s home resale market remained tight even after the introduction of a tax on acquisitions by foreigners (middle chart). The same cannot be said of Toronto, where the market turned from tight to balanced after the introduction of a similar tax last April. Toronto’s index was nevertheless up in January for the first time in six months, after the unsmoothed index (see note on methodology on next page) rose for a third month in a row (bottom chart). This firming of home prices in Toronto might reflect a rush to buy with pre-approved mortgages granted before more stringent rules on qualification for an uninsured mortgages were applied starting January 1st. With further increases in mortgage rates still to come (according to CMHC, posted 5y rates were at 4.14% in January against a low of 3.59% last May), it is premature to conclude that home prices have definitely turned the corner in Toronto.

Composite Index relapsed in February

OPINION: The Composite Index relapsed in February, having lost ground in four of the last six months, for a cumulative drop of 1.9%. Moreover, over that period, indices declined in seven metropolitan regions out of 10. Excluding Vancouver, the Composite Index would have declined or stayed put in each of the last six months. Speaking of Vancouver, we estimate that home sales declined markedly in February. Therefore home price pressures may fade out in that area over the next few months, even if for the moment the home resale market remains tight. For Toronto, home sales declined in January and February after a rush in Q4. In February, we estimate that sales were at their lowest seasonally adjusted level since July 2010, with the active-listings-to-sales ratio indicating a 3- month supply, the highest since November 2012 and comfortably in the balanced territory. It therefore seems that the new stricter bylaws on qualification for uninsured mortgages together with increased interest rates are taking a bite at least in the two most unaffordable large markets in Canada.
