As of August 31, 2016, if no more properties came onto the Toronto housing market, it would only take just over a month to deplete the available supply. That’s according to a new report by Chestnut Park Real Estate. BNN speaks with a broker for the company, Justine Deluce.View Video on BNN
There were a few surprises and once again a number of new records established by the Toronto and area residential resale market in January.
First, and very noteworthy, was the average sale price for all properties reported sold. It came in at an eye-popping $1,242,793, surpassing the previous record of $1,163,210 achieved in November of last year. By contrast, last January the average sale price came in at only $966,068, a year-over-year increase of almost 30 percent. This is not supposed to happen in January, historically a quiet month, and it happened during a snow filled month making access to properties extremely difficult.
