City of Toronto Real Estate Market Insight

for the period of time between January 1, 2017 and January 17, 2017

Attractive detached house in Toronto Beach neighbourhoodJanuary is typically a slow month in real estate sales, with kids at home during the first week, grown-ups recovering still from holiday activities, and uncooperative weather. Last year ended with a very low listing inventory and buyers eagerly awaiting new listings. We were hoping that, with a relatively mild and snow-free weather, more properties will be coming on the market early in 2017. But, so far, it didn't happen.

When compared to a year ago, number of listings and sales are a bit lower in both freehold and condominium ownership types, but not by a huge amount. Where we see a very big difference is in the proportion of listings sold above the asking price. In freehold houses 47% of listings were sold above asking this year, compared to 24% in 2016. But the largest difference is in condo sales - while only 6% were sold over asking in the first 17 days of 2016, this year 35% went over asking. 

I compared the listing and sales information for the same 17 days in 2016 and 2017 in the City of Toronto (416 area).

Freehold properties

508 houses were listed in 2017, and of these new listings 115 sold firm, and 19 were sold conditionally. Additionally, 126 older listings were sold, to a total of 241 sales.
