The sales volume for the GTA Market was up by 97% when compared to March 2020.  While sales
were strong, it is important to remember that for the second half of March we are comparing against the initial impact of COVID-19 in the second half of March 2020 when sales activity dropped off dramatically.
Detached homes led the price gains last month, coming in at 26.6% year over year increase.
The inventory level was at 0.68 months at the end of March 2021, which is slightly lower compared to months of inventory at the end of February 2021. The average price of a home in the GTA for March 2021 was $1,097,565.

If you are a first time Buyer, this might be a good time to take advantage of historically low interest rates (fixed 5 year rate is under 2%) and buy your first home before the prices go up even higher.

If you need to sell, we can arrange for 3D Virtual tours to facilitate virtual showings to reduce the number of in-person showings.  The key in the present market is to price effectively and strategically market the property (call me and we will show you how), staging and presentation play a key role as well.
