Mid March Madness

GTA Real­tors Report Mid-Month Resale Hous­ing Mar­ket Figures

Dur­ing the first 14 days of March, Greater Toronto Real­tors reported 4,215 trans­ac­tions through the Toronto MLS sys­tem, rep­re­sent­ing a 7% increase com­pared to the same period in 2011. The num­ber of new list­ings was down by 2% year-over-year to 6,970.

Home buy­ers con­tinue to ben­e­fit from the afford­able hous­ing sit­u­a­tion in the GTA. Immi­gra­tion to Toronto and sur­round­ing areas adds to the pool of home buy­ers every year. The eco­nomic and eth­nic diver­sity found in the GTA con­sis­tently attracts new­com­ers and for­eign invest­ment,” said Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) Pres­i­dent Richard Silver.

The aver­age sell­ing price for trans­ac­tions between March 1 and 14 was $502,155 – up by more than 9% com­pared to the first 14 days of March 2011. On aver­age, homes sold for 100% of the ask­ing price within three weeks.

Strong com­pe­ti­tion between home buy­ers in many parts of the GTA has resulted in sell­ers real­iz­ing their ask­ing price in a short period of time. The fact that homes are sell­ing for 100% of the ask­ing price, on aver­age, sug­gests that sell­ers are very much in tune with the cur­rent mar­ket sit­u­a­tion and know the fair mar­ket value of their home,” said Jason Mer­cer, TREB’s Senior Man­ager of Mar­ket Analysis.
