Prices in the 416 area code, which includes the City of Toronto, were generally higher than in the 905 area code for surrounding areas served by GTA realtors.
The average price for full-detached house in the 416 area was nearly $1.35 million, up 32.3 per cent from the same time last year while the comparable type of house in the 905 area had an average price of $957,517 — up 25.5 per cent.
TREB says a chronic shortage of property listings contributed to higher prices and frustrated some would-be buyers.
