Toronto Home Prices Soar Nearly 8%, Vancouver Sales Also Up
The Toronto Real Estate Board says home sales for March totalled 8,081, up 7.2 per cent from a year ago.
The increase came as the board also reported the average selling price for the month was $557,684, up almost eight per cent compared with March 2013.
“With borrowing costs remaining low, and in fact declining, strong home ownership demand will continue to butt up against a constrained supply of listings,” said Jason Mercer, the board’s senior manager of market analysis.
The number of new listings for the month totalled 14,829 compared with 14,618 a year ago.
The Toronto sales results followed a report Wednesday that sales in Vancouver also picked up in March.
The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver said Wednesday there were 2,641 homes sold, up from 2,347 a year ago.
