February stays right on track

TORONTO, March 6, 2007 -- Resale housing activity in the month of February was slightly higher than a year ago, Toronto Real Estate Board President Dorothy Mason announced today. A total of 6,772 transactions took place in the month, as compared to 6,756 in February 2006.
“Sales activity has been strong to begin the year,” Mrs. Mason said. “Results from the first two months show that so far 2007 is five per cent ahead of last year's pace.”
“The important thing is that we are seeing strong results on a consistent basis, which speaks volumes about the stability of the market,” Mrs. Mason added. “As we head into the most active part of the year, it's an excellent time to get into the market for the first time or make a switch to a different home.”
In Scarborough Town Centre / Woburn (E09), a jump in sales of detached homes pushed overall activity up 22 per cent compared to February 2006.
Strong condominium apartment sales in Mimico / New Toronto (W06) contributed to a 29 per cent increase in overall transactions compared to a year ago.
Central Toronto's Davisville neighbourhood (C10) saw 20 per cent more transactions than the same month a year ago, with strong sales among most housing types.
North of Toronto in Newmarket (N07), detached homes were the most popular type as transactions increased 32 per cent compared to last February.
