Toronto continues to be a hot market, experiencing growth compared with the same period last year. The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) reported 7,922 (resale) home sales in July 2011. This number is up by 23% compared with July 2010. Average home prices have increased to $459,122 in July 2011, up from $420,482 for the same period last year. This represents almost a 10% increase.
The graph below shows the average sales prices by month for 2010 in comparison with 2011. It is clear that the average home in Toronto has increased since the same period last year:
The other major market indicator is supply (active listings) and demand (sales) levels. Supply is down 19%, while demand is up almost 21% July 2011 versus July 2010. This tight supply and increased demand means more buyers are vying for fewer properties – i.e. more competition.
