One Minute Market Update: March - April 2024

Key Takeaways: 

  • Average sale price in March was relatively flat with a slight uptick month over month and year over year.
  • Another big jump in sales activity as March saw a 17% increase in homes sold month over month but still 9% lower than this time last year. 
  • Inventory is continuing to roll on to the market with a 42% increase in new homes month over month and 14% year over year. 
  • This time last year saw a surge in activity with new found activity in buyers as there was false confidence that rates would be coming down and the market took off. The fact that we have 9% less sales and 14% more homes to sell tells me we are just in a healthier balance right now. 
  • March saw an Easter weekend for the first time in a long time which is typically a slow few days for real estate and I imagine that was factored in to seeing a decline in number of sales year over year. I anticipate April is likely to be much more active for both buyers and sellers across the board. 
  • Running numbers after the first week of April, Toronto Freehold homes are at 2 Months Of Inventory (Sellers Market) and Toronto Condos are at 3.5 Months Of Inventory (Balanced Market).
