Hello everyone. How are you?

I provide you with Canada’s news headlines for real estate news for today. 

Canada’s Largest Real Estate Developer Declared A Soft Landing. They’re Wrong

Break out the champagne for the next open house, because it’s all clear sailing from here. That’s according to the CEO of one of Canada’s largest real estate developers, who declared Canadian real estate achieved a soft landing.

Kingston Real Estate Market Remains Strong

According to the most recent report from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), October 2018 saw 303 home sales in Kingston, up less than 1% from the same month last year. Despite a large number of overall transactions taking place—in fact, the second highest level ever for the month, with just nine fewer sales than the busiest on record, October 2016—year-to-date, the area has seen a nearly 10% decrease in the number of units sold, with a total of 3,288.

The dollar value for all the residential properties transacted was nearly $110 million this October, which represents an increase of 11% compared to the same time last year and an all-time high for the month of October.
