Toronto Real Estate Board
reports Best June ever with One Day to Go
TORONTO, June 30, 2003--With 7,749 sales reported through the TREB MLS
system, this month is already the best June ever recorded in the Toronto area,
TREB President Cynthia Lai said today. "Sales are already up eight per cent
over the 7,176 sales recorded in June of 2001, which was our previous best-ever
figure for the month."
"June's performance is quite astounding given the challenges Toronto has
faced during the first part of 2003," Mrs. Lai said. "However, it is
likely that some of the activity we are seeing now is a result of buying decisions
that were deferred during the first half of the year. This should make the summer
market unusually robust."
There is also good news with respect to affordability as prices have fallen marginally,
with the preliminary June figure coming in at $294,878, down one per cent from
the $298,451 recorded in May. The median price also fell marginally to $255,000
Full, finalized statistics will be available later this week in the Toronto
Real Estate Board’s Market Watch report.
