- Since July 2013, the market has picked up and did better than the corresponding months in 2012. As a result, 2013 came up on the top in terms of transactions. 2013 : 87,111 txn vs 2012 : 85,496 txn
- From 2012 to 2013, the average home sale price (annual) increased 5.21% from $497,130 to $523,036.
- TREB began tracking Toronto Area home price since 1966 when a Toronto home sale price averaged $21,360. In 47 years, the price grew 24.5 times (2,449%) to $523,036. In other words, Toronto home price appreciated by 7.04% each year.
If December and early January are early indications, the residential property supply will remain tight with a lower number of new listings. Given buying demand being steady, Toronto home prices will continue to grow.
