Supply Surge Meets Optimism

In Toronto, March 2024's real estate market saw a minor dip in home sales year-over-year due to the Good Friday holiday timing, with a noticeable increase in average home prices due to a more abundant supply. The Greater Toronto Area experienced a 4.5% decrease in sales but a 15% rise in new listings, closing the quarter with an 11.2% increase in sales and an 18.3% boost in new listings compared to the previous year.


Market conditions are showing signs of improvement, with buyers adapting to higher interest rates and a notable optimism among sellers for the spring market, reflected in the increase in new listings. The slight 0.3% rise in the MLS® Home Price Index Composite benchmark and a 1.3% increase in the average selling price to $1,121,615 suggest a stabilizing market.


The outlook for Toronto's real estate market is positive, with anticipated lower borrowing costs expected to lead to tighter market conditions and higher selling prices. The focus on innovative housing solutions and increasing the housing supply highlights a commitment to improving affordability and catering to the market's diverse needs, setting a solid foundation for future growth.

New listings surged by 21.7%, significantly boosting the number of active listings by 37.7% from last March, reaching the highest level in over five years.
