New numbers coming in for October show the 905 region taking the lead in condo sales activity, up 35% from a year ago.
Much of the increase in condo sales stems from the lack of lowrise housing options like townhomes, semi-detached and detached homes, especially in the more affluent neighbourhoods of the 905 like Thornhill

has seen condo sales slow down by 8% since October 2012, largely due to the overbuilding seen over the past decade. The market is still stable, with prices holding relatively steady. Toronto is on pace to sell half the amount of condos it did just two years ago in 2011.
