Oops I did it Again: The Toronto Real Estate Board Sets a New High


Remember how I said April was the best month ever on record for the Toronto Real Estate Board? Yeah well, I have to retract my blog post because May completely and totally obliterated the record set by April.

The 11,146 sales that occurred in May topped the 9,452 that happened in April by a whopping 18%. May 2007 was also 18% of May 2006. After five months, 2007 is 8% ahead of 2006 in terms of overall sales. The good news for buyers or would-be buyers is that even though sales are sky rocketing to never before seen levels, prices in May creeped up by only 5% over May of last year.

For those of you who are still predicting the impending doom of the real estate market in Toronto, now would be a good time for the three of you to consider a new hobby. For full details, and all the numbers, check out TREB's Market Watch.
