GTA new-home market slows in April

GTA new-home market slows in April

TORONTO —The GTA new-home market showed signs of slowing down in April from the exceptionally strong pace of the past year, the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) has reported.

Total April new-home sales of 3,645 units were down 29 per cent from April 2021, though still six per cent above the 10-year average, according to Altus Group. 

Single-family homes, including detached, linked and semi-detached houses and townhouses (excluding stacked townhouses), accounted for 571 units sold, down 47 per cent from last April and 54 per cent below the 10-year average. 

Sales of new condominium apartments, including units in low, medium and highrise buildings, stacked townhouses and loft units, with 3,074 units sold, were down 24 per cent from April 2021 but 40 per cent above the 10-year average. It was the fourth highest number of condominium apartment sales for April since Altus Group started tracking in 2000.

The benchmark price for new single-family homes in April was $1,787,186, which was up 28.1 per cent over the last 12 months, and the benchmark price for new condominium apartments was $1,189,134, which was up 12.3 per cent over the last 12 months. 

Due to a number of new project openings in April, total new home remaining inventory increased compared to the previous month, to 9,327 units, comprised of 7,936 condominium apartment units and 1,391 single family lots.

“The headwinds of rising interest rates and soaring inflation are starting to act as a drag after an exceptional 16 months. Meanwhile, single-family sales continue to languish as affordability issues persist,” stated Edward Jegg, research manager at Altus Analytics, in a statement.

“The unpredictability in construction costs, the supply chain disruptions and the strikes our industry is currently experiencing are expected to impact housing supply in the GTA in the coming months,” said Dave Wilkes, BILD CEO. “Combined with the factors affecting the larger economy, we are likely to see some volatility in the housing market in the months ahead.”
