September Real Estate Market

09.08.2023 | Real Estate Market

The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) has published the sales data for August. With 5,294 home sales reported through the local MLS, transactions were down 5.2% when compared to the same period last year.  

The average selling price of $1,082,496 is virtually unchanged from last August, representing a year-over-year increase of 0.3%. The MLS Home Price Index (HPI) Composite Benchmark, which helps measure inflation in the market, was up 2.47% year-over-year (+1.12% in Toronto).

Greater Toronto Area (GTA) housing market conditions remained consistent with the previous month. New listings were up 16.2% year-over-year to 12,296. Active listings were up 16.5% year-over-year to 15,497, representing a 2.93-month supply heading into September. The average sale took place in 20 days on market and at 100% of the listing price. 

Looking at prices by housing type: Detached homes sold for an average of $1,416,366, a year-over-year increase of 2.8%, and a month-over-month decrease of 0.8%. The average price for semi-detached homes was $1,067,980 (+6.9%/-3.1%), townhomes sold on average for $935,800 (+3.9%/-2.2%), and the average price of condos was $705,572 (-0.9% / -4.0%).

Higher interest rates, uncertainty around the Bank of Canada’s decision-making direction, and a constrained supply of listings resulted in fewer home sales in August. Looking forward, the outlook for ownership housing demand remains robust based on strong population growth. However, in the short-term, many homebuyers will continue to wait on the sidelines for the direction of monetary policy and the economy to become clearer.
