GTA Market Update – July 19, 2013

Toronto Home Prices 2013

Steady summer market

As of mid-July, Toronto home prices are sticking closely to the script. Our projected seasonal variation indicates that 2013 sales are showing the expected summer softness, before a fall market that may surprise some experts.

In fact, the first two weeks in July showed an average sale price of $510,819 – up by 8.1 per cent over this period in 2012. This year-over-year increase is greater than any we’ve seen so far this year.

September surprise?

 According to Jason Mercer, TREB’s market analyst, a tighter market is likely to produce a faster pace of average price growth in the second half of 2013 compared to the first six months of the year. While he expects low-rise homes to be the strongest market driver, Mercer also expects price increases in resale condo apartments.
