How GTA Home Sales Have Shifted Month-Over-Month and Year-Over-Year
The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) has released its latest market stats, which show a considerable difference in price growth in the suburbs compared to the city of Toronto. The average sale price of a detached home was up an average of 31.5% year-over-year in Storey Collective’s communities (Burlington, Halton Hills, Milton, Mississauga, and Oakville) compared to 19% in Toronto.
Here’s our monthly breakdown of the stats.
GTA Home Sales: TRREB’s January 2022 Statistics
Below, you’ll find the main conclusions from TRREB’s January 2022 Market Watch report.
- GTA realtors reported 5,636 sales in January 2022, which is down 18.2% year over year.
- While sales were down substantially compared to last year’s record result, the January 2022 result was the second-best in history for the month. This result is in line with TRREB’s forecast for a strong sales result in 2022 but off the 2021 record.
- New listings were down 15.5%.
- Because sales and new listings moved in relative lockstep, active listings at the end of January amounted to 4,140 – down by 44% to the lowest level in more than two decades.
- The MLS® Home Price Index Composite Benchmark has climbed by nearly 33% since January 2021.
- The average selling price across all property types was up by 28.6% year-over-year to $1,242,793.
Looking Forward, TRREB’s outlook for 2022 is as follows:
Total home sales reported through TRREB’s MLS® System in the GTA will reach 110,000, representing a dip from 2021, but still a strong result in comparison to previous years; and
The average selling price for all home types combined is set to climb to $1,225,000, an approximate increase of 12% when compared to last year.
