Compare Listings

Real Estate Market Data January 2024

Home sales were up in January 2024 in comparison to January 2023. This annual increase came as some homebuyers started to benefit from lower borrowing costs associated with fixed rate mortgage products. New listings were also up year-over-year but by a lesser annual rate compared to sales. The resulting tighter market conditions when compared to the same period a year earlier, potentially points toward renewed price growth as we move into the spring market.

There were 4,223 sales reported through TRREB’s MLS® System in January 2024 – an
increase of more than one-third compared to January 2023. The number of new listings was
also up year-over-year but by a lesser annual rate of approximately six per cent. Stronger sales
growth relative to listings suggests buyers experienced tighter market conditions compared to a
year ago.

On a month-over-month seasonally adjusted basis, both sales and new listings were up. Sales
increased more than listings which means market conditions tightened relative to December
2023.

“Once the Bank of Canada actually starts cutting its policy rate, likely in the second half of 2024,
expect home sales to pick up even further. There will be more competition between buyers in
2024 as demand picks up and the supply of listings remains constrained. The end result will be
upward pressure on selling prices over the next two years,” said TRREB Chief Market Analyst
Jason Mercer.
