"The last full month of summer ended on a high note. As we look toward the fall market, I expect that demand for ownership housing will remain strong. Home buyers will continue to benefit from a diversity of affordable home ownership opportunities throughout the GTA. The fact that sales were up for all major home types in August suggests that first-time buyers and existing home owners remain very active in today’s marketplace,"
said TREB's president, Paul Etherington.
The average selling price in August 2014 was $546,303 - up 8.9 per cent in comparison to the average selling price in August 2013. The number of listings was down in comparison to last year, but the number of sales has increased.
