GTA REALTORS® Report Mid-Month Resale Housing Market Figures

TORONTO, January 19, 2011 -- Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 1,563 sales during the first two weeks of January 2011 – an 11 per cent decrease compared to the first two weeks of January 2010.

"While off the record pace experienced last January, sales remain high from a historic perspective and market conditions remain tight enough to support a sustainable rate of price growth," said Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) President Bill Johnston.

The average price for transactions during the first 14 days of January was $413,565, representing a five per cent increase compared to the first two weeks of January 2010.

"Average price growth continues to be supported by a positive affordability picture. A household earning the average income can afford mortgage payments associated with the purchase of an average priced home," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis.
