‘Exuberant’ market to bolster Montreal home sales in 2020

Residential sales in Montreal are predicted to see blistering growth throughout the year, according to the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers. In its forecast released late last week, the QPAREB said that home sales activity in the Greater Montreal Area will likely go up by 6% in 2020, reaching an unprecedented total of 54,600 transactions.

According to the latest 4th quarter report by Royal Lepage, the average home sales price in the Greater Montreal Area went up by 6.3% year-over-year to reach $433,993. “This was the market’s strongest rate of increase in average housing prices in almost a decade. Indeed, 2019 was the third straight year that housing prices in the region posted annual growth of more than 5%.” “Since the end of 2010, the aggregate price has increased 26.2%, a difference of $113,756,” the Royal LePage report added.

Strong employment, purchasing power, inbound migration, and prevailing low interest rates are leading factors stimulating demand. Montreal and Ottawa will be the foremost seller’s markets in the luxury housing segment this year according to the ““Canadian Year-End Luxury Real Estate Report” by Engel & Völkers.

“Large investments by global corporations in downtown Montreal as well as an influx of start-ups are fueling the price surge,”  according to Engel & Völkers. Many properties are selling above asking and the amount of bidding wars have intensified in Montreal, reaching record numbers last year.
