In February, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) experienced a noteworthy uptick in new home inventory, setting the stage for anticipated revitalization in the spring market. Despite witnessing softer sales figures compared to the previous year, the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) reported a significant increase in available homes, offering prospective buyers a broader spectrum of choices.


February recorded 753 new home sales in the GTA, reflecting a 20% decline from the corresponding period in 2023. Notably, condominium apartments remained a focal point, constituting a substantial portion of sales with 379 units sold. Conversely, single-family home sales depicted a contrasting trend, with 374 units sold, showcasing a notable 103% increase from the previous year.


The total new home remaining inventory expanded to 20,177 units, encompassing 16,747 condominium apartment units and 3,430 single-family dwellings. Benchmark prices exhibited a mixed pattern, with condominium apartment prices experiencing a decrease while single-family home prices showed a slight increase compared to the preceding month.


Builders have proactively responded to market dynamics by bolstering inventory levels, anticipating heightened buyer interest in the coming months. Despite prevailing challenges, BILD maintains an optimistic stance, underscoring builders' readiness to contribute towards the provincial objective of constructing 1.5 million homes by 2031. Moreover, the moderation of interest rates emerges as a pivotal factor poised to instill buyer confidence and potentially reignite market activity.
