Just for the record, we don't use any alternative facts in our market updates. In fact, we swore an oath to accurately reflect the size of the market so that our clients could make informed decisions. No need to proclaim any national holidays in our honour, just know that when you hear it from us it's the real deal....nothing fake about what we report. We will continue to march on.


Listings in the freehold sector retracted significantly last week from 114 new listings two weeks ago to a mere 67 last week. Surprisingly, sales nearly doubled to 65 units over the same period. Less availability created a sharp rise in the number of homes selling at or over the list price (72%). Over the past few years we have not seen this level of activity until well into the spring market (usually April/May) before it falls, and remains below, the 70% point from around mid August.


The resale condo market is experiencing similarities to its freehold brother. New listings for the week are down nearly 50% to 189 across the 416 while sales have increased by nearly 30%. Tighter supply and more sales has constricted the market and now we are reporting a new record in terms of sales at or over the list price. While the percentage has been tracking higher all year our research indicates we are now hovering at 55%. Clearly we are in a seller's market for condos in Toronto.

Normally we aren't the superstitious types but if listings don't improve quickly we may be forced to throw salt over our shoulders, walk backwards under ladders or burn sage in our offices to break the spell. Generally speaking January is a slow month for new listings but demand is high and the weather has been kind so we were expecting a faster release of new properties on the market. Sellers and buyers alike might just be feeling the pinch of new mortgage rules and increased land transfer taxes.


Having the benefit of looking at the listing and sales figures exactly one year ago we do see some amazing similarities in the freehold market for the 416. Compared to last year, the number of sales and listings is nearly identical. Where they do diverge is in the number of sales at or over asking. 2017 is starting out much stronger with 46% of homes selling above the list price compared to 27% a year ago.


The resale condo market continues to flex its muscles in 2017. Listings are nearly half of what they were a year ago while sales are virtually the same. In addition, at the beginning of 2016 there was not a frenzy of condo buying. With lots of listings, people were taking their time to find the perfect condo. As a result less than 5% of condos sold at or above the list price. As 2016 unrolled we saw demand increase almost every month. 2017 is starting off stronger than ever with 45% of every condos sold trading at or above the list price.
