Teranet–National Bank House Price Index™ has made up the ground lost in second half of 2017

In June the Teranet–National Bank National Composite House Price IndexTM was up 0.9% from May. Though large at first glance, the increase was the third-smallest for June in the last 14 years. If we ignore the seasonal component of monthly variations, we cannot speak of a soaring index. The latest run of monthly increases is […]

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.

In June, the index recovered the ground lost in H2 2017

OPINION: With June’s rise, the Composite Index just recovered the ground lost during H2 2017 (left
chart). Does this mean that the Canadian home resale market is about to enter into a
new frenzy? No. June’s rise in the index, impressive at first sight, was in fact weak for
this time of the year. Indeed, if the Index were purged from seasonal patterns, it would
have been about flat over the last three months (right chart). This means that apart from
seasonal patterns, the index merely stabilized lately. That being said, stabilization at a
high level might hide different price trends for different types of dwellings. Condo prices
have risen at a fast clip since the beginning of the year in Toronto and Vancouver (after
seasonal adjustment, 7.8% and 16.3% annualized respectively), while prices for other types
of dwellings held their ground. The resiliency of prices for the latter category of dwellings
is indeed reassuring in view of higher interest rates and stricter mortgage qualification
rules (B20) that dampen demand for the most expensive categories of dwellings.
