Market Stats - March 2021
March completed the GTA’s 2021 Q1 real estate story with results consistent with January and February – record sales numbers, price appreciation and market pace. Comparing March 2021 numbers with the same month last year is, of course, somewhat problematic given COVID-19’s market-halting impact mid-March 2020. Looking at the activity for the quarter, the story has solidly been about inventory and pace of sales. February 2021 reported a record fast absorption rate of only 3.5 weeks of inventory in the GTA. Despite a 57% increase in new listings coming on market, March 2021’s absorption was even faster. With an average of 3,612 units selling per week, there was less than 3 weeks of available inventory. Add on a five-year Days On Market low of 10 DOM, and the speed of the market has never been faster.  Finally, a quick word on Condos. Anyone looking for a bargain, won’t find it in the GTA. The very brief softening of condo prices in Toronto has passed and with sales activity surpassing even that of March 2017 – the previous high watermark for the month – it’s fair to anticipate renewed price acceleration for condos in the months ahead.
Market Stats - February 2021
February 2020 was our last full month before COVID-19 hit and what many thought, in the early days of the pandemic, could possibly have been our last productive month of 2020. What happened next will be remembered as one of the biggest surprises in GTA real estate history – a boom year in sales and price appreciation. February 2021 is continuing the trend. Comparing it to February 2020 offers interesting insights, especially when comparing Absorption Rates.

An Absorption Rate tells us in how much time the existing inventory of homes will sell if no other listings are added to the market. In pre-pandemic February 2020, sales were up by 45.6% over the previous year with units selling at a rate of 1,674.5 per week. That pace coupled with the month’s active listings, down by 33.6% from the previous year, resulted in a very tight 5.3 weeks of available inventory for buyers.  In comparison, February 2021 sales were up by 52.5% over the previous year with units selling at a rate of 2,531.5 units per week. This February’s pace coupled with only 8,816 active listings, down 1% year over year for the period, resulted in a record low absorption rate of 3.5 weeks of inventory.  Absorption Rate is usually expressed in months, not weeks, with 1 – 4 months of inventory classified as a Sellers’ market. February 2021’s Absorption Rate offers a clear illustration of supply and demand in the GTA and why prices continue to accelerate.

How to calculate the Absorption Rate
Market Stats - January 2021
If you’ve wondered what real estate sales in the GTA would do with a surge of supply, look no further than January 2021’s condo sales that hit a record year over year increase of 85.5%. While improved affordability - a slight depreciation in the average condo price of 4.7% combined with record low interest rates - would be a factor in the sales numbers, this is a story of availability in an otherwise inventory starved market and the massive demand that persists. January’s 2,766 detached home sales, up by 34.4% compared to January 2020, continue to demonstrate the high demand from buyers wanting more space even as average prices increased by nearly the same rate as sales.
Market Stats for the GTA - December 2020
With over 95,000 home sales, the GTA real estate market had its third strongest year on record in 2020. This represents an 8.4% increase over 2019 results despite coming to a near-standstill last spring. December 2020 sales were up a remarkable 65% from a year ago. Overall prices accelerated further, particularly in the detached home sector, under extremely tight demand-supply conditions. Condo inventories swelled in December with active listings up 172% in the 416 and 159% in the GTA. But while condo prices have continued to soften as inventories increase, their December 2020 sales were spectacular. At nearly 76% greater than for the same period last year, sales numbers indicate there’s no shortage of condo buyers in the GTA. Condos will be the market segment to watch in 2021.
Market Stats for the GTA - November 2020
GTA real estate remained remarkably strong in November with 8,766 sales – an increase of 24.3 per cent year over year – and a 13.3 per cent increase in the average selling price – the highest rate of price appreciation for the month since November 2016. Detached homes, once again, lead the market in sales and saw an increase in average price of 15.2 per cent over November 2019. Most popular were detached homes in the 905 area with sales up by over 33 per cent year over year and accounting for 38 per cent of November’s total sales of all property types. The number of condo sales was typical for the month of November and up slightly from this time last year. However, the 416 area saw prices soften slightly, as the number of new condo listings swelled to nearly double that of November last year.
Market Stats for the GTA - October 2020
October 2020 sales reached record levels with 10,563 home sales representing a 25.1 per cent increase compared to October 2019. The number of new listings added to the market this October was a record 36.4 per cent over the same month last year and the highest increase for the month for the past 20 years. Condos accounted for almost 35 per cent of the 17,802 new listings that came on market. A closer look at the location of these new listings reveals that of the 6,193 condos listed, 72.6 per cent were in the 416. In terms of the 5,263 detached home sales in October, 76.6 per cent were in the 905. These stats reflect the influence that COVID-19 is having on the ability to work from home and the resulting demand for larger ground-oriented dwellings outside the city core.
Market Stats for the GTA - September 2020
Low interest rates, the ability to work from home for many, the desire for bigger spaces, and pent up demand were a potent combination for September 2020 GTA real estate sales. The month was the fourth in a row where both GTA home sales and prices have set new records with sales up by 42 per cent and average prices up by 14 per cent inclusive of all property types compared to September 2019. Again, the star of the month was detached homes. Year over year, the average price increase of 12.9 per cent for a detached home was about twice that for condos at 6.6 per cent. September 2020 total sales of detached homes grew by 54.7 per cent over the same period last year compared to 14.6 per cent for condos. Increased listing inventory of all property types helped fuel September’s sales activity. Compared to the past five year average, new listings entering the market were up by 28.9 per cent. Despite this increase, the GTA is still a tight market – average Listing Days On Market were down by 27 per cent compared to the five year average. This speed in the sales cycle kept September’s number of Active Listings to a modest 6.4 per cent increase over what September has seen for the past 5 years.
Market Stats for the GTA - August 2020
For the third consecutive month, home sales and prices have set new monthly records. August 2020’s total sales of 10,775 was 40 per cent more than the same period last year, with the average price of $951,404 representing an increase of over 20 per cent year over year. Detached properties showed the most substantial gains with the average selling price up by 19.9 per cent. Semi-detached homes were a close second with the average selling price up by 18 per cent year over year. While there's much speculation about home buyers with work from home options due to the pandemic shopping outside of the city of Toronto for properties with more space, the division of sales between the 416 and 905 areas in August this year has stayed consistent with August 2019. In both years, 905 area detached home sales made up 80 per cent of total sales for that property type and 905 area semi-detached sales were approximately 70 per cent of that property type’s total sales.
Market Stats for the GTA - July 2020
11,081 homes changed hands last month making July 2020 a record-breaking month for Toronto real estate. This was a jump of 29.5 per cent compared to July 2019. Detached homes were July’s property type leader with sales across the GTA up by 43.7 per cent year over year with the number of detached homes in the 905 coming in at a massive volume of 4,531 units. July sale prices in the city of Toronto had a 25.5 per cent price gain for an average of $1.54 million. The increased option of working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the desire for homes that have space to accommodate home offices have been pointed to as drivers for this summer momentum. The level of activity in July also points to the spring market’s deep freeze having only delayed demand that is now pushing new sales records.
