GTA Realtors® Release April 2024 Stats

TORONTO, ONTARIO, May 3, 2024 – April 2024 home sales were down in comparison to April 2023, when there was a temporary resurgence in market activity. New listings were up strongly year-over-year, which meant there was increased choice for home buyers and little movement in the average selling price compared to last year.

Greater Toronto Area (GTA) REALTORS® reported 7,114 sales through the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) MLS® System in April 2024 – down by five per cent compared to April 2023. New listings were up by 47.2 per cent over the same period. On a seasonally adjusted monthly basis, sales edged lower while new listings were up compared to March.

“Listings were up markedly in April in comparison to last year and last month. Many homeowners are anticipating an increase in demand for ownership housing as we move through the spring. While sales are expected to pick up, many would-be home buyers are likely waiting for the Bank of Canada to actually begin cutting its policy rate before purchasing a home,” said TRREB President Jennifer Pearce.

The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) Composite benchmark was down by less than one per cent per cent year-over-year. The average selling price was up by 0.3 per cent to $1,156,167. On a seasonally adjusted month-over-month basis, the MLS® HPI Composite was up by 0.4 per cent and the average selling price was up by 1.5 per cent compared to March.

“Generally speaking, buyers are benefitting from ample choice in the GTA resale market in April. As a result, there was little movement in selling prices compared to last year. Looking forward, the expectation is that lower borrowing costs will prompt tighter market conditions in the months to come, which will result in renewed price growth, especially as we move into 2025,” said TRREB Chief Market Analyst Jason Mercer.

“All levels of government have announced plans and stated that they are committed to improving affordability and choice for residents. However, more work is needed on alignment to achieve these goals, whether we’re talking about bringing enough housing online to account for future population growth or finding the right balance between government spending and combatting inflation. We can’t have policies in opposition. Housing policy alignment is key to achieving sustained, tangible results,” said TRREB CEO John DiMichele.

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.
