Mortgage rate cut, home sales increase
A cut in the seldom-used 10-year mortgage rate could signal wider mortgage rate relief this year as the full extent of Canada’s housing downturn becomes clear, some analysts contend.

Quebec leads job surge
The unemployment rate fell to 4.9 per cent in Quebec and to 4.6 per cent in British Columbia—the lowest jobless rates in the country following a surprising national job surge in April.

Tridel takes top BILD awards
Tridel virtually ran the table during the recent 39th annual BILD awards for Greater Toronto’s residential industry.



Home starts spring higher
April housing starts soared 20 per cent higher than a month earlier as the pace of national residential construction activity blew by expectations.

Prompt payment act could be coming
The federal Canada Prompt Payment Act (Bill S-224) has been passed by the Senate and awaits consideration by the House of Commons.

Suburbs becoming cool again
A desire for affordable homes—especially detached houses for new families—is making suburban living increasing popular among young Canadian homebuyers.

Affordability starkly different across Canada
Only the top 10 per cent of income earners can afford to buy a detached house in Toronto, where the benchmark price is $873,100. In Vancouver all but 2.5 per cent of the top earners can afford a house at the current benchmark of $1.44 million, according to new data from real estate broker Zoocasa.

One characteristic of renovation is that contractors are more a jack of all trades, using a wider variety of tools than new construction workers and often dabbling in fields that are not their speciality.
