  1. Something seems a little funny with the data. How can the highest average prices be in May for all sales, yet when broken down by property type the highest prices are all in October and November? Either there’s an error here, or the data is so variable that using averages to declare the ‘best’ times to buy and sell is more misleading than informative. Am I missing something?


    • I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks there’s something wrong with these numbers.


  2. I know what you mean but house prices are at a all time high starting May and going forward into the summer months, especially in the GTA with many properties going for more than asking price because of scheduled offer and bidding days.
