GTA REALTORS® Report November Resale Housing Market Figures

TORONTO, December 3, 2009 – Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 7,446 real estate sales in November – slightly more than double the November 2008 result when GTA home sales had dipped markedly due to the economic downturn. Year-to-date sales were up 14 per cent compared to the first 11 months of 2008.

“This year in the GTA home sales will be in line with the healthy levels experienced between 2004 and 2006,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Tom Lebour.

“Increased resale home transactions in the Toronto area and country-wide played a key role in pushing the Canadian economy out of recession in the third quarter.” The average price for November transactions was up 14% year-over-year to $418,460. The average price of resale property year-to-date was up 4% to $394,464.

“Very strong annual growth rates for home sales and average price should be expected through the first quarter of 2010, because we will be comparing the current recovery to the housing market decline experienced last winter,” according to Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis. “As we move into the spring, growth rates will move to more sustainable levels.”
