Way More Buyers than Sellers in Durham Region!

May has come and gone and there was no shortage of buyers here is Durham Region!

DRAR or Durham Region Association has released numbers for may and they are both good if you are looking to sell. The current president of (DRAR), Sandra O’Donohue, has stated in her report that 1,445 residential transactions took place in May 2016. This represents an increase of 8.7 per cent compared to the same period last year. Sandra was quoted as saying “There is no shortage of buyers in the market today,”

In contrast, there were 1,790 new listings in May 2016 compared to 1,851 May 2015; a 3.4 per cent decrease. This is the main reason for why prices have risen and the number of offers on some homes has  increased into double digits.  “Home prices have shown strong year-over-year increases in the Durham Region,” added O’Donohue.

The average selling price in Durham reached $531,051 last month. In comparison, the average selling price was $449,837 during the same period last year. This represents a  15.3 per cent increase. Similarly to last month, the continued increase in prices has caused homes to sell faster, selling in an average of 11 days compared to 15 days last year.

Buyers are more frequently having to remove conditions prior to making an offer, which in some cases makes the Buyers more prepared. Simply put Buyers have to know exactly what they are qualified for and many are now taking the advice of having a preemptive home inspection completed prior to making an offer. A Preemptive Home Inspection is done in just under an hour and looks at only major components of a home simply to give buyers that extra piece of mind.

Stats and Figures are taken from the DRAR Durham Region Association of Realtors monthly E bulletin for June 2016.

Calculate and Understand Land Transfer Tax

Land Transfer Tax

Land transfer tax (LTT) is often overlooked when considering the total cost of purchasing a home. All provinces have a land transfer tax, except Alberta and Saskatchewan, who instead levy a much smaller transfer fee. In most provinces the tax is calculated as a % of property value, using asking price as a close estimate. Home buyers in Toronto, unfortunately, also incur an additional municipal tax. However, Ontario, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island and the city of Toronto offer land transfer tax rebates for first-time home buyers to offset the unwelcome cost.

Ontario Land Transfer Tax – To Calculate your land transfer taxes simply use the following calculation:
Purchase Price of the Home- $350,000

ON THE FIRST $55,000 multiply by 0.5% (55,000 x 0.5% = $275)
ON $55,000 – $250,000 multiply by 1.0% (195,000 x 1.0% = $1,950)
ON $250,000 – $400,000 multiply by 1.5% (100,000x 1.5% = $1,500)
ON $400,000 and over multiply by 2.0% (not applicable for this calculation)
($275 + $1,950 +$1,500 = $3,725) Land Transfer Tax Amount Payable ($55,000 + $195,000 + $100,000 = $350,000) Purchase Price of the Home. Ontario First-Time Home Buyer Land Transfer Tax Rebate.The Ontario land transfer tax rebate is equal to the full value of the land transfer tax up to a maximum of $2,000

Eligibility

* The buyer must be older than 18 years
* The buyer must occupy the home within nine months of purchase
* The buyer cannot have owned a home anywhere in the world
* The buyer’s spouse cannot have owned a home while being your spouse

If you are purchasing a new home, it must be eligible for home warranty Based on Ontario land transfer tax rates, the rebate will cover the fully taxed amount on houses up to $227,500. For houses over $227,500, home buyers will receive the maximum $2,000 rebate. To obtain this refund, you need to apply within 18 months after the purchase of the home.
