TORONTO, May 4, 2011 -

-- Greater Toronto REALTORS® reported 9,041 existing home sales through

the TorontoMLS® system in April 2011.

This result was down 17 per cent compared April 2010 when sales spiked to a new record of 10,898.

While off last year’s record result, April 2011 sales were in line with the average April sales level reported

over the previous five years.

“Existing home sales have been strong from a historic perspective through the first four months of 2011.

Expect the pace of sales to remain robust through the spring, as the economy expands and home buyers

continue to benefit from affordable home ownership opportunities,” said Toronto Real Estate Board

(TREB) President Bill Johnston.

Market conditions tightened markedly over the last year. April 2011 sales accounted for 62 per cent of

new listings during the month – up substantially from 53 per cent in April 2010. Tighter conditions

resulted in the average April selling price growing by nine per cent annually to $477,407.

The strong price growth experienced in April should result in more listings

and more balanced market conditions.
