Focus On

Toronto housing.

It's no secret that Toronto remains a seller's market in 2016. Prices for both condos and houses in the city have shown surprising strength over the past several years, and that trend looks set to continue.

Toronto real estate is only the second most expensive among Canada’s major cities though: the average cost of a single-detached house is $770,000 in Toronto, but about $1.3 million in Vancouver — that’s a $530,000 difference.

Single-Detached Home and Condo Prices by City

CitySingle-detachedCondo
Canada$523,900$358,900
Vancouver$1,380,300$493,100
Calgary$513,900$307,000
Edmonton$418,500$247,400
Toronto$768,500$371,800
Ottawa$402,000$300,600
Montreal$355,800$286,200

Whether it's a condo, a semi, or a fully-detached house, if it's in Toronto, chances are it's climbing up in value. In fact, the average home price in Toronto is currently a staggering $750,000, according to the latest data from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). Unsurprisingly, sellers are receiving multiple offers and realtors report bidding wars and sales considerably over asking.

It's clear that low mortgage rates are spurring housing demand in Canada's biggest city, even as other metro areas struggle to maintain sales and price momentum.
