Residential transactions reported through TRREB’s MLS® System remained high in May 2021, but fell short of the 2016 record and were below this year’s March peak. Despite a slight ebb in sales over the last two months, market conditions remained tight enough to push the average selling price to an all-time record in May.
Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 11,951 sales in May 2021 – more than double the result from May 2020, the second full month of the pandemic. May 2021 sales were below the May 2016 record of 12,789 but remained well above the average May sales of 10,336 for the 2010 through 2019 period. Often, May is the strongest sales month in any given year; however, 2021 results bucked this trend, with May sales below the 15,646 deals reported in March.
“There has been strong demand for ownership housing in all parts of the GTA for both ground-oriented home types and condominium apartments. This was fueled by confidence in economic recovery and low borrowing costs. However, in the absence of a normal pace of population growth, we saw a pullback in sales over the past two months relative to the March peak,” said TRREB President Lisa Patel.
The MLS® Home Price Index Composite Benchmark was up by close to 19 per cent year-over-year in May 2021. The average selling price across all home types was up by 28.4 per cent year-over-year, reaching a record $1,108,453. On a seasonally adjusted basis, the average price increased by 1.1 per cent between April and May 2021.
“While sales have trended off the March 2021 peak, so too have new listings. This means that people actively looking to purchase a home continue to face a lot of competition from other buyers, which results in very strong upward pressure on selling prices. This competition is becoming more widespread with tighter market conditions in the condominium apartment segment as well,” said TRREB Chief Market Analyst Jason Mercer.
通过 TRREB 的 MLS® 系统报告的住宅交易在 2021 年 5 月保持高位，但低于 2016 年的记录，低于今年 3 月的峰值。尽管过去两个月销量略有下降，但市场状况仍然紧张，足以将 5 月份的平均售价推至历史最高纪录。
大多伦多地区 REALTORS® 报告称，2021 年 5 月的销售额为 11,951笔，是大流行的第二个完整月 2020 年 5 月的两倍多。 2021 年 5 月的销量低于2016 年 5 月创下的 12,789 笔的记录，但仍远高于 2010 年至 2019 年期间 5 月的平均销量 10,336笔。通常，五月是任何一年中销售最强劲的月份；然而，2021 年的业绩逆势而上，5 月份的销售额低于 3 月份报告的 15,646 笔交易。
“大多伦多地区所有地区的地面住宅类型和共管公寓都有强烈的自有住房需求。这得益于对经济复苏的信心和低借贷成本。然而，在人口增长速度不正常的情况下，我们看到过去两个月的销售额相对于 3 月份的峰值有所回落，”TRREB 总裁丽莎·帕特尔 (Lisa Patel) 表示。
2021 年 5 月，MLS® 房屋价格指数综合基准同比上涨近 19%。所有房屋类型的平均售价同比上涨 28.4%，达到创纪录的 1,108,453 加元。经季节性调整后，平均价格在 2021 年 4 月至 5 月期间上涨了 1.1%。
“虽然销售量已经从 2021 年 3 月的峰值回落，但新上市的房源也是如此。这意味着积极寻求购房的人们继续面临来自其他买家的大量竞争，从而导致销售价格的上涨压力非常大。随着公寓市场条件的趋紧，这种竞争也变得更加普遍，”TRREB 首席市场分析师 Jason Mercer 说。
