It is not surprising that February was one of the strongest and most robust resale months since April 2017. What is surprising is that the market unfolded in a landscape of low resale housing supply and record-breaking average sales prices.

TORONTO REAL ESTATE MARKET REPORT SEPTEMBER 2019

Toronto and area’s residential resale market, which I have been describing as beautifully boring over the last few months, got a lot less boring in September.
