Rentals share as housing starts increase
Canadian housing starts beat expectations in June, spiking to a seasonally adjusted pace of 245,657 units—up from 196,890 a month earlier, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., and above analyst expectations of 210,000 starts.

The composite benchmark price of a Greater Vancouver home fell below $1 million for the first time in two years in June and the effect is being seen in a surge of sales at the bottom end of the housing market.

Halifax housing hot—and getting hotter
The 7 per cent spike in resale housing transactions in the Halifax area this year is no fluke, according to real estate analyst Dane Eitel, who forecasts that the Nova Scotia capital is poised for higher sales and record high prices.



Canada Lands plans Ottawa mega-build
Canada Lands Corp., which has specialized in turning mostly former Canadian Forces land into mixed-use developments, is planning a mega-build in Ottawa. The proposal calls for a mixed-use development on a 25-acre parcel that could include hundreds of housing units, three 24-storey office towers for the federal government, and other high and low-rise commercial and residential buildings.

Location, tech lures young buyers
An exhaustive survey of what author Brett Easton Ellis calls the “wuss generation” but are better known as Millennials, shows that lifestyle, location and high-technology are important to these young homebuyers.

GTA new home sales strengthen
May saw new home sales continue to strengthen in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), according to the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD).

Developers amp up buyer incentives
Free flights, free strata fees for life, free mortgage payments for a year and 8 per cent interest paid on deposits for buyers are among the tempting incentives being dangled by Metro Vancouver condo developers.
