No February Blahs In The GTA Real Estate Market

Real estate sales in the GTA were up 21% from last year for the month of February says the most recent Toronto Real Estate Board housing market update. As multiple offers become more and more commonplace, sellers who effectively prepare, price and promote their property continue to get their asking price and more. The average sale price in the GTA spiked up to over $685,000 making for a 15% increase over last February’s average sale price of $596,320.

Mississauga and Oakville proved to be even more busy with an increase in sales for the past month of 28% and 40% respectively in comparison to the year before. The average sale price, on the other hand crept up just under 6% in Mississauga and 12 % in Oakville.

As expected, seizing the gold ring of homeownership and buying a detached home also cost more this February over last year. The average sales price in the GTA for a detached increased by 16% and landed at $909,761. West of the 416 saw an increase of just under 11% with detached homes selling at an average sales price of $889,524 in Mississauga and $1,171,571 in Oakville.

Whats In Store For The 2016 Real Estate Market?

The Re/Max 2016 Housing Market Outlook is forecasting another year of gains for the GTA. In Oakville and Mississauga in particular, buyers and sellers can expect to see an increase of five to six percent in the average price in 2016.Report-Blog-Image-1050x600

Citing continued low inventory for single family homes, the recent study matches my own day to day experience in the marketplace. The combination of demand for move up property and low interest rates continues to drive the market.
