Strong Start in 2016 Real Estate Activities in Greater Toronto Area.

Toronto Real Estate Board President Mark McLean announced Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,672 residential transactions through TREB’s MLS® System in January 2016. This result represented an 8.2 per cent increase compared to January 2015.
“It is clear that the handoff from 2015 to 2016 was a strong one. This is not surprising
given that recent polling conducted for TREB by Ipsos suggested 12 per cent of GTA
households were seriously considering the purchase of a home in 2016. Buying intentions
are strong for this year as households continue to see home ownership as an affordable
long-term investment,” said McLean.Toronto MLS Sale

The MLS® Home Price Index Composite Benchmark Price for January 2015 was up by 11.2 per cent on a year-over-year basis. The average selling price over the same period was up by 14.1 per cent.
The difference in the annual growth rates for the MLS® HPI and average price was largely due to a greater share of high-end detached homes sold in the regions surrounding the
City of Toronto this year compared to last. The MLS® HPI removes the impact of shifts in the share of different property types sold from one year to the next.

“Market conditions in January were tighter compared to a year earlier, with an annual
increase in sales up against a decline in listings. This is why growth in the MLS® HPI
benchmarks continued to be strong, especially for singles, semis and townhouses, where
there has been a persistent lack of inventory,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of
Market Analysis.
