Toronto Home Sales Growth Continues
12,870 home sales were reported through TREB’s MLS® System in May 2016 – a new record for the month of May and a 10.6 per cent increase over the same period last year.
In contrast, the number of new listings was down over the same time frame by 6.4 per cent.
While the record number of home sales through the first five months of 2016 is not necessarily surprising, it masks the larger story in the GTA: the shortage of listings, which has resulted in strong upward pressure on home prices.
