Toronto Home Sales Mid March Results-Diane Plant, Broker Forest Hill

By
Real Estate Agent with Forest Hill Real Estate Inc, Brokerage

Toronto Real Estate Board President Paul Etherington announced that Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 3,838 sales through the TorontoMLS system during the first two weeks of March 2015. This result represented an 11.8 % increase compared to the same period in 2014. New listings were also up over the same period, but by a lesser annual rate of 8.4 %

“Strong year-over-year growth in home sales continued during the first half of March for most home types in the GTA, both in the City of Toronto and the surrounding regions. This suggests that households continue to view the purchase of a home as a quality long-term investment. But for a lack of low-rise listings in some neighbourhoods, it is quite possible that the number of sales could have been higher,” said Mr. Etherington.

The average selling price for transactions reported during the first two weeks of March was $620,106 – up by 10.6 % compared to the same period in 2014. Price growth was driven by low-rise home types, including detached and semi-detached houses and townhouses.

 “The fact that sales growth has continued to outpace listings growth suggests that there is pent-up demand in the marketplace, especially for singles, semis and townhouses. This is why we have experienced a sustained period of strong price growth for low-rise home types. So far in March, we havealso experienced a greater share of high-end detached home sales compared to the same time frame in 2014. This has also influenced growth in the average selling price,”
