Saying that the market is hot, is an understatement.  The demand continues as low-interest rates continue to be the norm and buyers are looking outside the Toronto area for bigger homes as they continue to work from home.  Here are your March Market Results for the Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville, Milton and Burlington areas:

GTA REaltors® reporeted 15,652 sales in Mach 2021 - close to double that of March 2020.  It is important though that the comparison is made against the intial impact of COVID-19 in the second half of March 2020 when sales activity dropped off dramatically.

For March 2021 as a whole, new listings were up 57% however, the annual growth rate for new listings was well below that of sales.  The Average Selling Price, at $1,097,565 was up by 21.6% over the same period.  Following the trend, low-rise home sales in regions surrounding the City of Toronto drove price growth.  For the Peel Region report please click here.

"As we begin to wrap up the first quarter of 2021, we continue to see robust growth of the housing sector in Oakville, Milton and beyond.  While the market activity this year remains indicative of Buyer and Seller confidence, there is still an apparent lack of inventory that has yet to give way," says OMDREB President Lynn Hoffman.
