Toronto Real Estate Report May 2015

The Toronto real estate market is just CRAZY! Huge demand for real estate ownership has made April 2015, with 11,303 homes sold, the highest sales record for April sales, (up 17% over April 2014), in the history of the Toronto Real Estate Board.

The unprecedented demand saw the average sale price of a home sold in April to jump to $653,932, and the year to date average price to $609,903, up 7.6 % from the start of the year.

While these are averages for the whole of the Board’s trading area, here is a breakdown of the average sale price year to date of more local areas:

Here is how the sales have taken place by price range so far this year:

  • $0 – $199,999: 2.6 %
  • $200,000 – $299,999: 11.2 %
