  • RyanRoberts Broker ca Working By Referral October 2010 Toronto Housing Sales and Stats This certainly confirms what I felt in the month of October. There was a pick up in activity for both my listings and buyers. September proved to be quieter due to a late holiday start and great weather. But there numbers rolled in to improve over last October! I hope that November brings more listings as there has been very little, quality homes and condos for sale of recent. TORONTO, November 3, 2010 -- Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 6,681 sales through the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in October 2010. This represented a 21 per cent decrease compared to the 8,476 sales recorded in October 2009. Through the first ten months of the year, sales amounted to 75,582 – up one per cent compared to the January through October period in 2009. “The annual change in sales and average selling prices has been quite uniform across the GTA and by property type as the market has balanced out from record levels of sales in the second half of 2009 and first few months of 2010,” said Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) President Bill Johnston. “The composition of GTA home sales does differ depending on location. Condominium apartments accounted for 42 per cent of total sales in the City of Toronto and almost 60 per cent of sales in TREB’s central districts,” Johnston continued. “In regions surrounding the City of Toronto, in contrast, low rise home types accounted for almost 90 per cent of transactions.” The average price for October transactions was $443,729 – up five per cent compared to the average of $423,559 reported in October 2009. The average selling price through the first nine months of the year was $430,802. “The average selling price in the GTA has continued to grow relative to 2009 because home ownership has remained af- fordable,” said Jason Mercer, the Toronto Real Estate Board’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis. “A household earning the average income in the GTA can comfortably afford the mortgage payments associated with the purchase of an average priced home.” “The outlook for mortgage rates and income growth over the next year is favorable. The average home selling price could increase moderately next year and remain affordable for the average GTA household,” continued Mercer. BOOK OF THE MONTH: ‘OPEN’ - By Andre Agassi.
