Mid-Month Resale Market Figures Released for February

Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher announced that “sales growth has rebounded so far in February after a slow start to the year in January. While new listings were still down in comparison to last year, the annual rate of decline was less than experienced last month. This may point to an improvement in the listings situation moving forward, which would help alleviate some of the pent-up demand that currently exists in the marketplace.”

market statistics

The Toronto Real Estate Board reported 2,767 sales through the TorontoMLS system during the first 14 days of February. This result was up by 1.3% in comparison to 2,731 transactions reported during the same period in 2013.  New listings were down by 6.1% on a year-over-year basis.

“Price growth well above the rate of inflation will be the norm for the remainder of the year.  Over the same period, mortgage rates are expected to remain low, thereby keeping home ownership affordable in the GTA,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.

The average selling price during the first two weeks of February 2014 was $547,107 – up 7.8% compared to the average of $507,474 for the first 14 days of February 2013.
