Setting the HST record straight

TREB President's Column as it appears every Friday in the Toronto Sun’s Resale Homes and Condos section.

September 24, 2010 -- As the old saying goes, "time flies", and it sure does feel that way about Ontario's new Harmonized Sales Tax (HST), which has already been in effect for almost three months.

August Sales and New Listings Down, Prices Up

TORONTO, September 3, 2010 -- Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 6,232 sales through the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in August 2010. This represented a 22 per cent decrease compared to the 8,035 sales recorded during the same period in 2009. New listings decreased by one per cent year-over-year to 10,488.

"The prospect of interest rate hikes and new mortgage lending rules prompted some households to purchase a home sooner than they otherwise would have this year. The result has been a larger than normal dip in sales over the summer months. With this said, it is important to recognize that sales on the year were eight per cent higher than in 2009," said Toronto Real Estate Board President Bill Johnston.
