The sales volume for the GTA Market was down by 41.2% when compared to April 2021.  Number of new listings were down 11.7% but active listings were up by 12.3% respectively, leading to an increase in inventory of homes for sale.
 

Townhomes led the price gains last month, coming in at 18.8% year over year increase. However the month over month numbers show a decline in average sale price through-out all types of homes, down an average 4.5%.

The inventory level was at 1.64 months at the end of April 2022, which is the highest it has been this year.  As mentioned in the last market update, this has led to Buyers having more choice and the year over year price growth has slowed down. 
 
The average price of a home in the GTA for April 2022 was $1,254,436, which is up 0.9% since January, 2022.
 
If you are a first time Buyer, this might be a good time to take advantage of the sluggish market conditions and buy your first home. The interest rates maybe higher now but the prices have stabilized and come down as well.  The higher inventory resulting in sluggish price growth makes this a perfect time to become a homeowner.

If you need to sell, the key in the present market is to price effectively and strategically market the property, staging and presentation play a key role as well.  Also, we can arrange for 3D Virtual tours to facilitate virtual showings to reduce the number of in-person showings.
  We have been successful in selling homes for over asking price even after the interest rate increase.
