January 2019

TORONTO, February 6, 2019 - TREB President Garry Bhaura announced that Greater
Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,009 home sales through TREB’s MLS® in
January 2019 – up by 0.6 per cent compared to January 2018. On a preliminary
seasonally adjusted basis, sales were up by 3.4 per cent compared to December
2018.


“It is encouraging to see the slight increase in January transactions on a year-overyear
basis, even with the inclement weather experienced in the GTA region during the
last week of the month. The fact that the number of transactions edged upwards is
in line with TREB’s forecast for higher sales in calendar year 2019,” said Mr. Bhaura


The MLS® HPI Composite Benchmark price was up by 2.7 per cent compared to
January 2018. The condominium apartment market segment continued to lead the
way in terms of price growth. The average selling price was up by 1.7 per cent on a
year-over-year basis. After preliminary seasonal adjustment, the average selling price
edged lower compared to December 2018.


“Market conditions in January, as represented by the relationship between sales and
listings, continued to support moderate year-over-year price increases, regardless of
the price measure considered. Given housing affordability concerns in the GTA,
especially as it relates to mortgage qualification standards, we have seen tighter
market conditions and stronger price growth associated with higher density low-rise
home types and condominium apartments, which have lower average selling prices
compared to single detached homes,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market
Analysis and Service Channels.
