As expected of the holiday season, Toronto listings took another dip with only 1,963 (4,249) new properties listed in December and sold properties down 11.7% (18.3%) at 2,395 (3,587) with the average days on market at 19 (17).

Although December figure were not spectacular, the vigorous pace that characterized 2021 was sustained. Hence, the multiple records set. Housing inventory was not able to cope with the surge in demand in Toronto and the GTA.
Several measures are set to take effect but we can only wait and see if these will result in greater housing availability and a less competitive market this 2022.
