My Last Newsletter of 2023!

December 1, 2023

It's my last newsletter of 2023! Thank you to all my clients for trusting me as your real estate sales representative this year. It's been such a pleasure working with new and existing clients and helping you achieve your real estate goals. In preparation for 2024, there is so much to look forward to. My business plan for the year is ready and I know I will be able to support each of you with you real estate journey.

Here is a brief look at the November Toronto real estate market as reported by the Toronto Real Estate Board:

High borrowing costs and uncertain economic conditions continued to weigh on Greater Toronto Area (GTA) home sales in November 2023. Sales were down on a year-over-year basis, while listings were up from last year’s trough in supply. With more choice in the market, selling prices remained basically flat year-over-year.

“Inflation and elevated borrowing costs have taken their toll on affordability. This has been no more apparent than in the interest-rate-sensitive housing market. However, it does appear relief is on the horizon. Bond yields, which underpin fixed-rate mortgages have been trending lower and an increasing number of forecasters are anticipating Bank of Canada rate cuts in the first half of 2024. Lower rates will help alleviate affordability issues for existing homeowners and those looking to enter the market,” said Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) President Paul Baron.

GTA REALTORS® reported 4,236 sales through TRREB’s MLS® System in November 2023 – a six percent decline compared to November 2022. Over the same period, the number of new listings was up by 16.5 percent. On a seasonally adjusted monthly basis, sales edged up compared to October 2023, while new listings were down by 5.5 percent.

The MLS® Home Price Index Composite benchmark and the average selling price, at $1,082,179, in November 2023 were basically flat in comparison to November 2022. On a seasonally adjusted monthly basis, the MLS® HPI Composite benchmark was down by 1.7 percent. The average selling price was down 2.2 percent month-over-month.

Being immersed in the beauty world of pageantry for many years, Tamara became more conscious about the products she used on her skin + body. Noticing that most cosmetics brands in the industry are full of chemicals + many
of them are endocrine disruptors. It was incredibly difficult for Tamara to find premium quality cosmetics that are good for your skin + still provide impeccable coverage + colour pigmentation.
Since Tamara found it difficult to find this in the already existing cosmetics industry, PHNX was born. The birth of PHNX is intended to provide the cosmetic industry with a revolutionary change.
