TREB mid-April existing-home sales figures wash away fears of Toronto real estate collapse and prove 'doomsayers' wrong. It was nasty winter weather and recently introduced Toronto Municipal Land Transfer Tax (LTT) that kept both buyers & sellers on the fence and contributed to the sluggish first quarter.

Single-detached average price in excess of $500,000

in close to half Toronto Real Estate Board's MLS districts! Unprecedented demand for single-detached homes along the Yonge Street corridor prompted double-digit price increases in the GTA's top performing neighbourhoods in the first six months of 2007, finds new Re/Max report. "To date, 51 per cent of districts reported double-digit sales gains for detached homes and 44 per cent for condominiums. It's been another banner year for real estate, and it's far from over" says Michael Polzler.

Detached Houses

Demand is particularly evident in the central core - from Bloor St. north to Highway 7 - where average price ranges from $565,000 to well over a million. In fact, nearly 60 per cent of 'C' districts reported double-digit increases in unit sales for the first half of the year." Last year at this time, appreciation had slowed in the central core as the average price approached $830,000. Buyers were investigating more affordable alternatives east, north, and west of the city centre. This year, despite an average closer to $875,000, demand for properties is at an all-time high in the district and a limited supply of product has purchasers vying for homeownership. In June, four central districts (C02, C10, C11 and C15) reported a sales-to-listings ratio above 100 per cent. Multiple offers remain commonplace on quality, well-priced product, with detached homes selling for 100 per cent of list price or more in all but one central district in June.

TORONTO, October 18, 2006 -- In the first half of October, Toronto Area housing activity kept pace with mid-October results from a year ago, Toronto Real Estate Board President Dorothy Mason announced today.

"There were 3,007 sales reported to mid-month, essentially on par with the 3,012 sales reported during the same period in 2005," Mrs. Mason said. "Adding to this strong result is the fact that transactions are up three per cent from the 2,913 recorded during the first part of September which is a good sign for the stability of the autumn market."

Jason Mercer, CMHC's Senior Market Analyst for the GTA, said, "Steady demand for resale homes has kept average prices rising above inflation, albeit at a lower annual rate, as buyers have benefited from increased choice in the marketplace."
