➕‘the numbers’ for April are in. The Bank of Canada’s goal of slowing consumer spending is reflected in this month’s Toronto Real Estate market statistics with transactions down vs. last month [-6%], and last year [-36%]. Consistent with historical rate tightening cycles, the recent sharp 0.5% rate hike has prompted some buyers to delay their purchase. However, despite the lower volume, market conditions remained tight enough that the average selling prices in April grew by double digits vs. last year, and it is expected that the supply/demand dynamic will remain competitive enough to support price growth vs. 2021, but the rate of increase will moderate in the coming months.
Specifically, properties in the ‘416’ area code realized gains in average selling prices for detached houses [+15%], semi-detached houses [+14%], townhouses[+15%] and condos [+13%] vs. 2021.
