GTA Real Estate Market January 2024

GTA Real Estate Market January 2024 Summary

GTA Real Estate Market Performance:

As per the January 2024 TRREB Market Watch Report, the housing market experienced a notable surge in home sales compared to the same period in 2023. This upswing coincided with certain homebuyers reaping the benefits of reduced borrowing expenses associated with fixed-rate mortgage products. Although there was a year-over-year increase in new listings, the growth rate was less pronounced compared to sales figures.

Consequently, the resulting tighter market conditions compared to the previous year may potentially indicate a resurgence in price appreciation as the spring market approaches.

Jennifer Pearce, President of TRREB, remarked, “We had a positive start to 2024. The Bank of Canada expects the rate of inflation to recede as we move through the year. This would support lower interest rates which would bolster home buyers’ confidence to move back into the market. First-time buyers currently facing high average rents would benefit from lower mortgage rates, making the move to homeownership more affordable.”

TRREB reported 4,223 sales through its MLS® System in January 2024, marking an increase of over one-third compared to January 2023. The average selling price experienced a 1% decrease year-over-year, amounting to $1,026,703.  Although new listings also saw a year-over-year uptick, the growth rate was approximately 6% lower. The stronger surge in sales relative to listings indicates tighter market conditions for buyers compared to the previous year. Furthermore, on a month-over-month seasonally adjusted basis, both sales and new listings experienced an increase. However, sales outpaced listings, leading to tightened market conditions relative to December 2023.

There is anticipation for further increases in home sales once the Bank of Canada initiates cuts to its policy rate, likely in the second half of 2024. With growing demand and limited listing supply, competition among buyers is expected to intensify, consequently exerting upward pressure on selling prices over the next two years.

From our on-the-ground experience, from mid to late January, we have been witnessing multiple offer scenarios with 15-20 offers becoming a norm on most good homes. All of this is pointing towards a potential sellers market making a comeback in 2024.
