Market Update: All Time Highs!
Friday Dec 10th, 2021
Average selling prices reached a new all-time high in the month of November 2021!
The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board reported a 21.7% increase in average selling price for all home types year-over-year, making it $1,163,323.
So why did we reach new highs?
#1 Low Inventory
#2 Short-Term Policies
Continued low inventory has been a significant factor in contributing to increased home prices. TRREB reported a 13.3% decrease in new listings at 10,036.
Compared with October 2021, new listings dropped by 14.5% month-over-month. Lower supply struggles to meet with pursued demand, resulting in rising home prices.
Governments also contribute as local, provincial, and federal sectors focused on short-term policies to artificially suppress demand. As TRREB President Kevin Crigger states, "Current market activity highlights decisively that these policies do not work, and unless governments work together to cut red tape, streamline the approval processes, and incentivize mid-density housing ongoing housing affordability challenges will escalate."
