August Shows Stable Results

Toronto Real Estate Board President Dorothy Mason announced today that the Toronto resale homemarket continued its run of healthy showings in August, with 6,976 homes changing hands through the TorontoMLS system. "Last month was the second best August ever recorded, off moderately from the record 7,498 figure achieved in 2005. In addition, the year as a whole has seen 59,488 single-family dwelling sales, up marginally from 2005's January to August performance. As people return from their summer holidays, we are looking forward to an even more active autumn market."

Prices remain stable in August, with the Average coming in at $338,192, less than one per cent lower than the July figure of $342,034. This figure is up five per cent over the $323,255 recorded during August of 2005.
