October sales eased compared to last year’s levels, mostly to slower activity in the detached sector. However, with 1,857 sales this month, levels are still stronger than long-term trends and activity reported prior to the pandemic. Year-to-date sales have reached 26,823 and with only 2 months to go, 2022 will likely post a record year in terms of sales.
New listings also trended down this month causing the sales-to-new-listings ratio to rise to 85% and inventories to trend down. Much of the inventory decline has been driven by product priced below $500,000. While conditions are not a tight as what was seen earlier in the year, with only 2 months of supply, conditions remain tighter than historical levels.
We are also seeing divergent trends in the market with conditions continuing to favour the seller in the lower-price ranges and shifting to more balanced conditions in the upper-price ranges. As of October, prices have eased by 4% relative to the highs reached in May. This is considered a relatively small adjustment when considering price movements in other large cities.
It is also important to note that the October benchmark price is still nearly 10% higher than levels reported last year.
