We Need Good Supply and an Equal Level of Demand.

I would tend to agree with a few of the points from an article that appeared in the globe and mail from a few weeks ago (see below). It is my understanding that the more first time home buyers that enter the market without sufficient inventory to select from can be one of the contributing factors of what happened a few years ago where too many buyers in the market didn’t have enough homes (inventory) to select from. Demand outstrips supply and we see 2, 3 or 4 buyers looking to acquire that entry level home in a good neighbourhood and multiple offers increase the purchase price which then has a trickle down affect to the next sale in the neighbourhood and the feeling from Buyers that they have to outbid other buyers as opposed to being able to shop for a home.

Article from Globe and Mail

There seems to be recognition that maybe there could be somethings to consider to assist 1st time home buyers getting into home ownership.  Although, RBC warns against taking measures to spur the market.

Some highlights as follows;

  • Some chatter of late of what Bill Morneau may unveil in the March 19th budget related to housing affordability
  • Some possibilities mentioned have been;

o   30 year amortizations for 1st time home buyers

o   Relaxing the stress test

o   Increasing the tax free RRSP withdrawal limit for 1st time home buyers

  • RBC Senior Economist, Robert Hogue, warns against taking such measures as they don’t address concerns such as;

o   Gaps in the mix of housing options

o   High household debt

o   Inventory challenges

o   He even warns such measures could inflate prices

  • Hogue does not believe Canada has a problem with home ownership;

o   On average, more than 40% of Canadian Households headed by those under the age of 35 own their homes

o   The proportion of Canadian households who own a home is one of the highest in advanced economies

  • Hogue feels that the collective goal should be to remove barriers (regulatory, administrative etc.) inhibiting developers and builders to respond quickly to the demand for new housing

 

If you would like to know more about the real estate market in your neighbourhood or community i would be happy to create a customized report that will outline the details of the market is performing from both sides of the equation.

History of Little Britain 

Little Britain was established in 1834 by a man named Harrison Haight. He built the first mill in Little Britain in 1837. This mill, which stood until 1910, took nearly the whole countryside to build. At the time, there was no road that led from Little Britain to Oakwood, located 5 km to the north. In 1850 Christians came and built the first church. They were followed by the Bible Church in 1852. The Post Office came in 1853.

Names suggested for the town were Margaretville, after Margaret Metherell, and Elm Grove, proposed by the first postmaster, Robert Fergusson Whiteside. The latter was rejected by the post office because of duplication, so Whiteside named it after his place of origin, Little Britain in Pennsylvania 

Prominent members of the time included Joseph Maunder’s carriage and blacksmithing works, W.M Burden’s carriage shop, Edwin Mark’s foundry, Isaac Finley’s steam roller flour mill, Dr George Wesley Hall MD and the Davidson’s flour mill. The railway was brought into Lindsay around the turn of the century

 

Today 

Little Britain today is still a primarily agricultural town. It also has a fairly significant tourist presence from the influx of cottagers on nearby Lake Scugog, and from those who use Little Britain Road as a means to bypass heavy cottager summer traffic on Highway 7. For such a small town, Little Britain boasts a number of comfortable amenities including a restaurant, bakery, bank, library, grocery store, post office, park, arena and a country gift store as well as many other services. There is a gas bar, two auto repair shops, a drugstore and a medical office.
