The Toronto Real Estate Board has just issued a press release regarding sales in the first two weeks of August 2009.
The big news for me, is that despite the horrendous start to the year, and in fact entering into a Buyers Market for a few months for the first time in many many years – Toronto Real Estate Board year to date sales are up compared to the same time last year, for the first time in 2009. This is definitely attributed to by the record setting sales that we saw in the months of May, June and July.
Breaking down the numbers for the first two weeks of August 2009 (when compared to the same time period last year), sales are up 27% to 3,832 (from 3,019) and average prices are up to $385,603 from $373,844, a 3% increase. Below is a summary of the report.
Congratulations to all you home buyers and sellers during this incredible time for the Toronto Real Estate Board!
