The July stats are out and they continue to show signs of a strong and healthy Toronto real estate market. TREB reported an increase in sales year-over-year by 18.6% but a decrease in new listing of 1.8%. The lack of inventory, but increase in demand as buyers move off the sidelines, has put upward pressure on Toronto home prices.
