- The pandemic may impact the dynamics of the Montréal real estate market on several fronts. For example, a larger supply of homes for sale or for rent would increase the choice for households in the metropolitan area and would also reduce pressure on prices or rents.
- Since the start of the pandemic, the number of condominiums put up for sale has increased rapidly in some central Montréal sectors, particularly Griffintown. However, the share of investors responsible for the new condominium listings in this sector is no higher than in the past.
- The number of units available for long-term rental since the start of the pandemic has increased more rapidly in sectors with a high concentration of short-term rental units or students.
