Average Toronto house price nears $500,000
Low interest rates, and low inventories of houses for sale, helped push house prices up almost 9 per cent across the GTA this January over last, according to statistics released by the Toronto Real Estate Board Friday.
The average sale price across the GTA hit $463,534 in January. But average price of a home in the Toronto 416 regions came in just shy of $500,000 — $499,045 — compared to $442,380 in the 905 regions, TREB says.
