GREATER TORONTO REALTORS® REPORT LATEST MID-MONTH RESALE MARKET FIGURES
TORONTO, February 19, 2014 – Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher announced that
“sales growth has rebounded so far in February after a slow start to the year in January. While new
listings were still down in comparison to last year, the annual rate of decline was less than experienced
last month. This may point to an improvement in the listings situation moving forward, which would
help alleviate some of the pent-up demand that currently exists in the marketplace."
Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 2,767 sales through the TorontoMLS system during the first
14 days of February. This result was up by 1.3 per cent in comparison to 2,731 transactions reported
during the same period in 2013. New listings were down by 6.1 per cent on a year-over-year basis.
"Price growth well above the rate of inflation will be the norm for the remainder of the year. Over the
same period, mortgage rates are expected to remain low, thereby keeping home ownership affordable
in the GTA," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis.
The average selling price during the first two weeks of February 2014 was $547,107 – up 7.8 per cent
compared to the average of $507,474 for the first 14 days of February 2013.
King City real estate, Kleinburg real estate, Vaughan real estate, and Richmond Hill real estate is in high demand. Interest Rates are still low, and there are a shortage of listings in some areas.
