[URBAN NOTE] Five notes on the housing market in Toronto, from TCH to Parkdale to investors

  • In an old NOW Toronto article from March, Lisa Ferguson writes about how a neighbourhood land trust hopes to control prices in Parkdale.
  • The Globe and Mail‘s Jill Mahoney and Justin Giovannetti note a recent study suggesting that less than 5% of home sales in the Toronto area are to foreign buyers.
  • The Globe and Mail‘s Carolyn Ireland notes that, in a fluctuating market, homeowners are caught between pressures to buy and to sell.
  • NOW Toronto‘s Sheila Block argues that, among others, the Bank of Canada needs to prepare for a housing crash.
  • The Toronto Star‘s Jennifer Pagliaro notes that Toronto Community Housing has been ordered to close no more units. No word on where the money will come from.
