  • 31. Summary 1. Home sales in the GTA have been impacted government policy and, to a lesser extent, by mediocre economic growth. 2. While sales are down, price growth is expected to continue through 2013, as market conditions remain tight, especially for low-rise home types 3. The ownership and rental markets will be better supplied in 2013, which will result in more moderate rates of price and rent growth.Toronto Real Estate Board Market According to Mercer, October 2012 30
