TORONTO, November 17, 2006 -- Toronto Real Estate Board Members reported 3,008 sales during the first half of November, an increase of four per cent from the 2,886 sales recorded during the same timeframe in 2005, Toronto Real Estate Board President Dorothy Mason announced today.

“Although the holiday season is almost upon us, momentum from the autumn market has carried over and things remain very active,” Mrs. Mason said, noting that sales this month are also marginally ahead of mid-October's mark of 3,007.

Bayview Village / Hillcrest Village (C15) in Toronto showed an increase in sales of 40 per cent compared to the midway point of last November.

A jump in sales of semi-detached homes in York South (W03) fueled a 70 per cent overall increase during the first half of November, compared to the same timeframe last year.

In Ajax (E14), east of Toronto, mid-November sales were double the pace of what they were to mid-November 2005, with gains in most housing types.
