“The GTA resale home market became better supplied during the first 14 days of February.  If growth in new listings continues to outstrip growth in sales this year, competition between home buyers will ease.  More balanced market conditions on a sustained basis would result in a lower annual rates of price growth later in 2012,” said Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) President Richard Silver.

The average selling price during the first 14 days of February was $491,493 – up by nine per cent compared to the first 14 days of February 2011.  On average, sellers received 99 per cent of their asking price and their homes were on the market for an average of 25 days.

“Both buyers and sellers are aware of the substantial competition that exists for most listings in the GTA.  There is not a mismatch in expectations, so homes sell quickly at close to the asking price,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.
