No surprise as the Toronto Real Estate Board released the May sales numbers. 7,283 properties sold with an average sale price at $1,274,869, up 16.4% since the end of 2021.  GTA Realtors meanwhile listed 18,679 homes for sale year to date. There were 7,283 sales in May 2022 – down 38.8% compared to May 2021 and down 9% compared to April 2022. 

The number of new May listings was like last year’s level and edged up on a month-over-month basis. With sales down and new listings trending flat to slightly up, the number of active listings was up on a year-over-year basis by 26%. Without a doubt, the increase in mortgage rates is a real concern as many are waiting to see the impact on prices but market conditions remained tight enough to support an overall average selling price of $1,212,806 for May 2022, representing an annual growth rate of 9.4%.

The reality of the market has not changed. Due to a shortage of homes for sale, prices in January and February rose at an unsustainable rate of 25%+. In March, sellers with inexperienced Realtors continued to offer properties for sale at significantly higher prices than the previous sales and, not surprisingly, buyers balked as homes stopped selling almost overnight. With the mortgage rate increase taking some buyers out of the market and others waiting to see what happens, the number of homes sold dropped compared to last year. The impression and Buyers’ hope is that home prices will keep declining.

The problem is, “Hope” is not a strategy. Hope supports realistic optimism, a necessary component of success. But If the market turns back up, as we have seen before, e.g. 2018, and interests rise again, buyers will be further disadvantaged. The other factor is, no matter whether you are buying or selling, putting on hold your life needs and that of your family is costly in more ways than just monetarily.  We need only think back over the past 2+ years to recognize that.

This is also an amazing time to increase your investment portfolio. It’s said “don’t time the market”, but it is also said, “buy the dip” if the opportunity presents itself. Give me a call and let me show you the reality of the market and how you can turn it to your advantage.

Pareto’s Principal says that 20% of sales people do 80% of the sales in any field. As a full time, professional & experienced realtor and businessman have the pricing & marketing strategies and negotiating skills to make it work for you. As a top performer and being with Remax, the largest multinational real estate company marketing properties world-wide, you need me and Remax!

You can read the full May report and/or call me to talk about your personal situation, your hopes, and dreams. There is no obligation and perhaps we can plan together to turn your hopes into your reality.

Have a great June and start of summer.
