GTA Realtors® Release November 2022 Stats

TORONTO, ONTARIO, December 6, 2022 – Homeownership market activity in November continued to be influenced by the impact of higher borrowing costs on affordability. Sales were down markedly compared to the same period last year, following the trend that unfolded since the commencement of interest rate hikes in the spring. New listings were also down substantially from last year, and at a very low level historically. The fact that the supply of homes for sale has remained low, has supported average selling prices at the $1.08 to $1.09 million mark since August.

Greater Toronto Area (GTA) REALTORS® reported 4,544 sales through TRREB’s MLS® System in November 2022 – down 49 per cent compared to November 2021, but remaining at a similar level to October especially after considering the recurring seasonal downward trend in the fall. New listings, at 8,880, were down on both a year-over-year basis and month-over-month basis.

“Increased borrowing costs represent a short-term shock to the housing market. Over the medium- to long-term, the demand for ownership housing will pick up strongly. This is because a huge share of record immigration will be pointed at the GTA and the Greater Golden Horseshoe (GGH) in the coming years, and all of these people will require a place to live, with the majority looking to buy. The long-term problem for policymakers will not be inflation and borrowing costs, but rather ensuring we have enough housing to accommodate population growth,” said TRREB President Kevin Crigger.

“We have seen a lot of progress this year on the housing supply and related governance files such as the More Homes Built Faster Act. This is obviously good news. However, we need these new policies to turn into results over the next year. Otherwise, the current market lull will soon be behind us, population growth will be accelerating, and we will have done nothing to account for our growing housing need. The result would be enhanced unaffordability and reduced economic competitiveness,” said TRREB CEO John DiMichele.

The MLS® Home Price Index Composite Benchmark was down by 5.5 per cent year-over-year in November 2022. The average selling price for all home types combined was down by 7.2 per cent year-over-year. Annual price declines continued to be greater for more expensive market segments, including detached and semi-detached houses.

“Selling prices declined from the early year peak as market conditions became more balanced and homebuyers have sought to mitigate the impact of higher borrowing costs. With that being said, the marked downward price trend experienced in the spring has come to an end. Selling prices have flatlined alongside average monthly mortgage payments since the summer,” said TRREB Chief Market Analyst Jason Mercer.

Sales and Average Price Up in Calendar Year 2013

January 6, 2014 – Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,078 residential

transactions through the TorontoMLS system in December 2013 – up by almost 14 per cent

compared to 3,582 sales reported in December 2012. New listings entered into the

TorontoMLS system were down by almost four per cent over the same period.

Total sales for calendar year 2013, at 87,111, were up by approximately two per cent

compared to 85,496 transactions in calendar year 2012.

“After a slow start to the year, sales growth accelerated to a brisk pace in the second half

of 2013. Despite the inclement weather in December, we finished the year with a

respectable gain in transactions compared to 2012. Looking forward, I believe that home

ownership in the GTA will remain affordable as borrowing costs stay low. The result could

be a further increase in sales in 2014,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne

Usher.

“The average selling price will be up again in 2014 and by more than the rate of inflation.

The seller’s market conditions that drove price growth in the second half of 2013 will

remain in place in many parts of the GTA. Some neighbourhoods, especially those

characterized by low-rise home types like singles, semis and townhomes, will continue to

have less than two months of inventory,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of

Market Analysis.

The average selling price for December 2013 sales was $520,398 – up by 8.9 per cent

compared to the average of $477,756 in December 2012.

The average selling price for 2013 as a whole was $523,036, which represented an increase

of 5.2 per cent compared to the calendar year 2012 average of $497,130.
