Most Recent Market Stats

September 12, 2022

March 2023 trended much the previous month with overall sales declining, there were 44.3%  less than transactions than one year ago in the fall of 2022.  The average sales price is down 14.6% year over year across all types of housing segments with the current average price across the GTA at $1,298,666.  In the ‘416’ neighbourhoods the average price of a detached is $1708,575 and in the ‘905’ regions  $1,400,246.   Keep in mind this year over year comparison is when the market was at its absolute peak last year.  In the months ahead we will not be seeing such drastic numbers because it was in March 2022 when interest rates started to climb and sales activity started the decline. 

The good news though is as we head into Spring 2023 we are seeing positive momentum with optimistic buyers returning to the market as they adjust to the new mortgage rate environment.  Many Sellers were holding off selling or putting their property for lease but the Sellers that are active are seeing good activity on their listing and in some cases getting multiple offers.  Surprising to many yes no doubt!  Almost 50% of all detached homes listed received multiple offers this past month.  It is estimated we’ll have 85,000 sales by the end of the year, down from the previous couple of years but overall a good amount of activity.   Despite media’s negative news the market has sprung into action.
