Residential Transaction Volume Up

While heavily weighted by the core of Toronto, the Toronto Real Estate Board reported this week that August transactions were up year-over-year.

There were 6,839 sales in August 2018 - up 8.5% versus 2017. Seasonally-adjusted volume puts sales up 2% versus July 2018.

With increased stability around the GTA, we expect to see volume increasing in the ‘905’ areas, including the core Unionville, Markham and Richmond Hill areas. September is looking to be a solid month for new listings, and overall sales activity.
