The Market Insights Report by Teranet Examines the State of the Ontario Mortgage Market As Summer Season Ends

October 1, 2020 • Teranet Market Insight Report

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Canadian mortgage market became more visible during the summer months.

This trend has continued in August. The month witnessed the sharpest year-over-year drop in 2020, as it recorded 41,000 residential mortgage transactions.

As COVID-19 cases rise and uncertainty remains, our Market Insights Report aims to provide you with a detailed analysis of the current state of the Ontario mortgage market to help you make more informed decisions.

In this report, you can find an in-depth analysis of:

  • Mortgage Registrations Volume & Dollar Amount from January 2020 to August 2020.
  • Mortgage Registrations by Municipality.
  • Mortgage Registrations by Lender Category.
  • Mortgage Registrations by Property Type.
  • And Sales Registrations.

While the residential mortgage transactions in August 2020 exhibited a decline for the first time in 3 years, the dollar value of mortgage registrations showed a positive trend.

Within the first eight months of 2020, there were 321,860 mortgage registrations, representing a total dollar amount of $149.5 billion. This is a significant increase from 2019, which saw a total dollar amount of $135.1 billion in the first eight months of the year.

As multiple factors come into play – like rising COVID-19 numbers, reopening of schools, and a possible second COVID-19 wave coming to Canada – our data scientists continue to monitor the market and provide you up-to-date mortgage market insights.
