Toronto becoming the real estate “market to watch”

Recent months have shown that Vancouver is the top emerging real estate market in Canada, but new statistics show that Toronto could soon be the up-and-coming city in the country, reports The Vancouver Sun.

A research note from BMO Capital Markets' Douglas Porter pegs Toronto as the real estate market to watch. Not only are sales of Toronto homes up by 7.8 percent year-on-year, but prices have also jumped by more than 10 percent. That's in stark contrast to Vancouver, where sales are down nearly 30 percent from a year ago and prices only rose moderately.

"That is the market to watch now, no two ways about it," Porter concludes.

Those considering moving to Toronto may want to consider renting self storage space in order to house their excess items. There are many options for affordable storage in Toronto that can be invaluable during a big move.

Self storage can be a smart way to hang on to valuable items without taking up room in a house or apartment. For Toronto storage solutions, there's no better than Jiffy Self Storage. Those interested in self storage should check out the affordable rates on Jiffy's website, where they can also enter to win a free iPad 3.
