commercial real estate transactions can be quite volatile on a monthly basis. Recent economic reports, including those for gross domestic product and employment, suggest that the economy is continuing to improve.

These reports point to further growth in business investment, which is a positive sign for the GTA commercial real estate market in 2011,” said Toronto Real Estate Board Commercial Division Chair Larry Purchase.
