The Toronto Real Estate Board reported 4,635 home sales during the first 14 days of April 2015. This result represented a 3.4% increase compared to April 2014. New listings over the same period were down by 4.6% year over year.
“Home sales in the GTA continued to increase in comparison to 2014 as a diversity of buyers took advantage of affordable home ownership options. However, in many neighbourhoods, listings remain scarce, particularly for ground-oriented home types like singles, semis and towns. Given the amount of pent-up demand in the market today, sales growth would accelerate further if more homes were listed for sale,” said TREB President Paul Etherington.
The average selling price for April mid-month home sales was $625,121 – up 7% in comparison to the same time frame in 2014. Average prices were up for all major home types, both in the City of Toronto and the surrounding regions.
“We are experiencing balanced to seller’s market conditions in most areas and market segments in the GTA. This suggests that home ownership demand is being driven by a wide swath of the population. On one hand, strong growth in condo listings has been met with strong growth in condo sales. On the other hand, we have also experienced growth in higher-end home sales,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis.
