Toronto home sales surge 24.3 per cent in November, but condo prices fall

With schools restarting in January and many children and parents home for remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, buyers were willing to push their budgets to get a more spacious home in place for the new year, says King, a team leader at Century 21 Millennium Inc. brokerage.

 “A huge draw to being in the city was all of the things that happen in the city,: the festivals, the nightlife, parties and gatherings. But all of that is gone now,” says King. “A lot of people don’t see the value in living in a place with so little square footage.” 

Pockets of listings have also cropped up from

North American stock markets fall to end very strong November while loonie rises

TORONTO – Despite losing some ground to start the week, North American stock markets concluded an exceptionally strong month of November on the back of positive news about COVID-19 vaccines.

The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 191.13 points to 17,205.43, but was up more than 10 per cent for the month.

In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 271.73 points at 29,638.64. The S&P 500 index was down 16.72 points at 3,621.63, while the Nasdaq composite was down 7.11 points at 12,198.74 after setting a record high earlier in the trading session.

The three U.S. markets gained between 10.75 and 11.8 per cent in November.

The primary reasons for the recovery from weakness in September and October was investor optimism about vaccines and the fact that uncertainty about the U.S. election appears to have ended, said Pierre Cleroux, vice-president of research and chief economist for the Business

BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese new home prices growth eased slightly in November, weighed by tighter market curbs in larger cities and increased demand weakness in smaller towns, a private survey showed.

New home prices in 100 cities rose 0.32% in November from a month earlier versus a 0.4% gain in October, according to data from China Index Academy (CIA), among China’s biggest independent real estate research firms.

Fewer cities reported monthly gains, with the number falling to 71 from 73 in October, and 28 cities saw lower home prices compared with 26 in the preceding month, the CIA data published on Tuesday showed.

City clusters in the southern Pearl River Delta and eastern Yangtze River Delta contributed most of the market’s strength in November, the CIA said, with Dongguan, Hangzhou and Jinhua

Prime London Market Began November With 40% More Homes for Sale Than Last Year

A growing number of homeowners in prime London are looking to sell, with new listings up 68% year-over-year in October, new data shows.

The number of new properties for sale has surged in the wake of the pandemic, with the number of homes coming to market in August and September nearly double the same period last year, according to a report from data firm LonRes released on Wednesday, U.K. time. October continued that trend with two-thirds more homes for sale across the capital’s luxury neighborhoods.

The listings surge means supply was 40% higher in prime London at the beginning of this month than there was a year ago, according to LonRes, which defines prime London as 35 affluent postcodes in central, outer and fringe areas.

Time will tell whether there’ll be enough demand in London to match it.

Sector ETFs & Stocks to Buy This November

After a brutal October, November saw a solid start with the three major U.S. benchmarks hitting new highs on optimism over a divided government and vaccine for coronavirus.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden is likely to gain control of the White House while Republicans may keep the Senate. Per the latest ballot counting, Biden has become the presumptive president-elect of the United States while the fight for the control of the Senate is ongoing, as no candidate has reached the required 50% threshold to win outright.

Meanwhile, promising results from the U.S. drugmaker Pfizer PFE and German biotech firm BioNTech for their COVID-19 vaccine candidate lifted investors’ confidence. The data from their late-stage trial showed that the candidate was more than 90% effective in preventing the disease (read: Biggest ETF Winners from Coronavirus Vaccine News).
