I was just reading an article that was titled, “Why the Canadian Housing Market Is Soaring in the Pandemic”. With all its theoretical ideas, it failed to state that fact that, at least in Montreal anyways, has been in a seller’s market since April 2017. That when we first saw listings go down 25%. Meaning there were 25% less available product on the market from the previous year. Every single month since then, the listings (available properties for sale), have gone down 12-25%. 

It’s safe the say that nothing has changed due to the pandemic. There are still the same amount of hungry buyers as there were before. April 2017, is when we started seeing the upward trend of extremely crowded first visits and multiple offers.  Any real estate broker will tell you, that there are many, many buyers who still haven’t bought. With the interest rates so low, and due to the high demand, I see us continuing in this manner for a very long time.

Time to sell has gone down significantly. With people lining up around the corner for every new property for sale, brokers are limiting visits to the first week and putting short deadlines for offers.
