The digital real estate platform's new Market Pulse tool helps homebuyers determine which areas are hot or not
TORONTO, Aug. 8, 2022 /CNW/ - Entering the real estate market can be daunting for anyone and, these days, buying a home has never felt more challenging. With escalating interest rates and record setting home prices, many Canadians have found themselves exploring unfamiliar ground, unsure about where to turn and how to navigate the ever-changing landscape. Fortunately, Wahi, a state-of-the-art digital real estate platform, has launched its new Market Pulse tool to help Canadians make sense of market ups and downs and how they impact housing prices.
Wahi understands that buying a home in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) can be expensive and overwhelming, but it doesn't need to be. That's why its Market Pulse tool offers current data for almost 400 GTA neighbourhoods so Canadians can compare median sold and list prices to understand what areas are seeing overbidding or underbidding. These hot—or not— neighbourhood insights can help homebuyers make informed decisions about when and where to buy or sell, leveraging insights for a 30-day period at a time. New July 2022 data shows that 84% of GTA neighbourhoods are in underbidding territory with a median $20,000 or -2.2% underbid versus list price. Compared to July 2021, 68% of transactions were sold at or above list price with a median overbid of $7,005 (+0.9%).
GTA homebuyers can explore their neighbourhood and understand overbidding and underbidding trends by visiting Wahi's Market Pulse tool.

Wahi analyzed the list and sold prices of properties within 383 GTA neighbourhoods from their Market Pulse tool in July 2022. The top 5 for overbidding and underbidding were ranked based on the percentage difference in sold price versus list price. Neighbourhoods with less than 4 sold properties in July were not considered in the data set as it is not considered to be representative of the market. The median amount of overbidding or underbidding in each neighbourhood is based on the actual listing price and actual sold price of homes and does not take into consideration individual listing or bidding strategies, for example setting a low listing price to generate multiple offers.
