MARKET STATS FOR AUGUST 2020

For the third consecutive month, home sales and prices have set new monthly records. August 2020’s total sales of 10,775 was 40 per cent more than the same period last year, with the average price of $951,404 representing an increase of over 20 per cent year over year. Detached properties showed the most substantial gains with the average selling price up by 19.9 per cent. Semi-detached homes were a close second with the average selling price up by 18 per cent year over year. While there's much speculation about home buyers with work from home options due to the pandemic shopping outside of the city of Toronto for properties with more space, the division of sales between the 416 and 905 areas in August this year has stayed consistent with August 2019. In both years, 905 area detached home sales made up 80 per cent of total sales for that property type and 905 area semi-detached sales were approximately 70 per cent of that property type’s total sales.
