2020 Year-End Housing Statistics

January 10, 2021

The market is red-hot due to low-interest rates and limited inventory levels driving the house prices up.

Despite an unprecedented year due to COVID-19, the Toronto residential real estate market ended 2020 on a high, with 95,151 home sales taking place throughout the year according to the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board. This was an 8% increase year-over-year (y-o-y) and the third best year on record for sales.

New listings couldn’t quite keep up, growing a mere 3% y-o-y in 2020, and likely helped push the average home price across the Toronto Region up by 13% annually to a new annual record of $929,699.

The Greater Toronto Area’s condominium market moderated in 2020, but does that tell the whole story? Absolutely not. While sales declined by 5% compared to 2019, according to the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB), prices actually increased by 7.1%. In the 416 and 905, prices rose by 6.3% and 10.2%, respectively.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL CANADIAN REAL ESTATE MAGAZINE ARTICLE
