Following the ownership market as a whole, Q3 2022 condominium apartment sales were off by approximately 46 per cent compared to Q3 2021. Despite there being substantially more balance in the market in the third quarter relative to a year earlier, the average selling price was up year-over-year, albeit by less than the current pace of inflation.
There were 4,177 condo apartment sales reported through TRREB’s MLS® System in Q3 2022
compared to 7,795 in Q3 2021. The number of new listings was also down over the same period by 16
per cent to 10,258.
“The condo market remains a very important segment in the GTA housing market both in terms of
ownership and rental. The ownership side of the market has been slower, as some first-time buyers have
been sidelined by higher borrowing costs and the hit on affordability. Many of these would-be buyers
have shifted to the condo rental market in the short- to medium-term to meet their housing needs,” said
TRREB President Kevin Crigger.
The average selling price for condominium apartments in Q3 2022 was $720,132 – up 4.5 per cent
compared to $689,230 reported for Q3 2021. In the City of Toronto, the average selling price was
$749,375 – up 3.3 per cent.
“The pace of condo price growth has moderated as higher borrowing costs have hampered affordability
since the spring. However, the impact has been mitigated to a certain degree by a dip in listings over the
same period. A shorter supply of condos will likely provide some support for prices in the months ahead,”
said TRREB Chief Market Analyst Jason Mercer.
