Are you curious how your house or condo has appreciated over time compared to the average in the city? Or how those average price increases look versus the stock market? Well then you came to the right place. I've been compiling this after the June and December market statistics are released, going back to 2016 (historical reports here). But it's been a minute since my last post on this, for Q4 2019. That post is still getting a lot of reads, so I figured I really... [read more]

You've got several websites to choose from that give you sold data.

Are you curious which of the 144 Toronto neighbourhoods are the most expensive? The least expensive? Yeah, me too, so I dug into it. You will find interactive maps down the page, showing averaged detached prices for all neighbourhoods and which areas had the highest % gains, but first... A little background I've been doing this for a few years now. For example, here are the most and least expensive neighbourhoods for 2019 and 2018. Last year I published a companion... [read more]
