February numbers are in…

Just as predicted, the Spring Market is taking off like 2017 all over again.  A shortage of listings, high demand, and low-interest rates combine to create a hot market.  Toronto’s single-family dwellings are up 16.7% in sale price over this time last year.

Condos in the Six – up 18% in price Y/Y

 

Condos in the downtown core – up 19.8% in price Y/Y

 

This chart shows you why condos downtown are climbing so high in price.  A recent sale had a price increase of 20% over the same unit which sold in November.  20% in four months, all due to a shortage of inventory.
