MARKET UPDATE // May 2020 // Recovery! Recovery! Recovery! This May demonstrated yet again just how resilient the Toronto market is. With the resale market incrementally improving since early April. . This May, 4,606 residential properties were reported sold, this represents a 55 percent improvement compared to April’s results. Although the improvement was dramatic, May’s results were 50 percent less than last year. Toronto and area realtors reported 9,950 residential resales. . The average sale price came in at $863,599, an increase of 3 percent of the average sale price of $937,000 achieved in May of 2019. In the City of Toronto detached properties averaged $1,422,273, semi-detached came in at $1,143,322 (8.8 percent higher than last year’s prices) and condominium apartments came in at $674,028, 5 percent higher than last year. . Last year there were 20,017 properties available for buyers to inspect and purchase. This May the available supply has dwindled to only 11,448 properties, a 42 percent decline. In a healthy, balanced market there should be no fewer than 25,000 properties in inventory. The lack of supply is, of course, responsible for the strong resale prices. New listings coming to market were down by over 53 percent in May. . As the emergency measures are relaxed, and more businesses are allowed to open up, resulting in people returning to work, the number of sales and average sale prices are likely to increase, particularly if more inventory makes its way to the market. .
