The Ontario housing market has been subject to extensive scrutiny, particularly in recent years. As we head into 2024, experts are keeping a close eye on trends and predicting what’s next. Let’s take a deeper look at the key trends shaping the market and what homeowners, buyers and investors can expect.

Slow And Solid Sales

In 2023, the pace of home sales reached the lowest level seen since the turn of the century. The combination of high interest rates and cautious buyers waiting for further price declines has resulted in a soft commercial market across much of the region with the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) particularly affected, with home sales is lower than in any year since 2001 when the population was higher and significantly smaller.


Royal LePage’s prediction

Real estate firm Royal LePage expects average home prices in the GTA to increase by six per cent by the end of 2024. Additionally, home prices in Ottawa will increase by 4.5 per cent Those projections this means that prices will continue to rise in some areas.

ReMax’s Contradiction

In contrast, ReMax forecasts average GTA prices to fall by three per cent by 2024 but home prices to increase by a modest two per cent in the Ottawa Difference in these forecasts highlights the complexity of the market and the diversity of developments in different areas.

Mortgage Rates And Consumer Behavior

High interest rates are a major deterrent for potential buyers. The Real Estate experts insist that the combination of rising prices and interest rates is driving more buyers out of the market. Sellers were also reluctant to adjust their asking prices to the higher borrowing costs faced by buyers.
