TORONTO, July 6, 2009- In June 2009, Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported a record
10,955 sales, up 27 per cent from June 2008. The seasonally adjusted annual rate of sales in
June was 100,700.1
"The record result in June is testament to the fundamentally sound housing market in the GTA,"
said the Toronto Real Estate Board's newly appointed President Tom Lebour. "An increasing
number of households have been confident in purchasing a home in the region's affordable and
diverse resale housing market."
The average price for June transactions was $403,972 - up by two per cent compared to the
same month last year.
"The re-emergence of seller's market conditions has exerted upward pressure on home prices,"
explained Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis. "Look for sales to remain
high relative to listings in the second half of the year. This will keep home prices growing."
