GTA Realtors® Release January 2023 Stats

TORONTO, ONTARIO, February 3, 2023 – As we moved from 2022 into 2023, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) housing market unfolded as expected. The number of January sales and the overall average selling price were similar to December 2022. On a year-over-year basis, both sales and prices were down markedly, continuing to highlight the impact of higher borrowing costs on affordability over the last year.

“Home sales and selling prices appear to have found some support in recent months. This coupled with the Bank of Canada announcement that interest rate hikes are likely on hold for the foreseeable future will prompt some buyers to move off the sidelines in the coming months. Record population growth and tight labour market conditions will continue to support housing demand moving forward,” said Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) President Paul Baron.

GTA REALTORS® reported 3,100 sales through TRREB’s MLS® System in January 2023 – in line with the December 2022 result of 3,110, but down 44.6 per cent from January 2022. The average selling price for January 2023 at $1,038,668 was slightly lower than the December 2022 result and down by 16.4 per cent compared to the January 2022 average price reported before the onset of Bank of Canada interest rate hikes. The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Composite Benchmark was in line with the December result, but down by 14.2 per cent compared to January 2022.

“Home prices declined over the past year as homebuyers sought to mitigate the impact of substantially higher borrowing costs. While short-term borrowing costs increased again in January, negotiated medium-term mortgage rates, like the five-year fixed rate, have actually started to trend lower compared to the end of last year. The expectation is that this trend will continue, further helping with affordability as we move through 2023,” said TRREB Chief Market Analyst Jason Mercer.

“All three levels of government have announced policies to enhance housing affordability over the long term, including many initiatives focussed on increasing housing supply in the ownership and rental markets. Most recently, we were encouraged to see Toronto City Council support the Mayor’s 2023 Housing Action Plan as part of the City’s overall $2 billion commitment to housing initiatives,” said TRREB CEO John DiMichele.

TRREB will release its annual Market Outlook and Year in Review report on Friday, February 10, 2023.

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


“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.
