Market Analysis, TREB's Jason Mercer - Senior Manager,discusses the Condo Report, and Rental Report, for Q2.
Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 5,853condominium apartments rented through the TorontoMLS system in the second quarter of 2013. This result was up by approximately 23 per cent in comparison to the second quarter of 2012. The number of condominium apartments listed for rent was up by over 15 per cent to 10,284.

“Condominium apartments rented out by investors have become an increasingly important part of the overall rental stock in the GTA, given that very few purpose-built rental properties have been completed over the last decade,” said Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher.

“Strong demand for condo rentals has come from households who want to live in upto-date units but who are not ready to buy. These renter households include would be first-time buyers who are waiting to save a down payment and/or benefit from increased incomes and new comers to Canada who often choose to rent before entering into the home ownership market,” continued Ms. Usher.

Average rents for one-bedroom and two-bedroom condominium apartments increased well-above the rate of inflation on a year-over-year basis in the second quarter, reaching $1,611 per month and $2,174 per month respectively.

“The fact that annual growth in rental transactions outstripped growth in the number of units listed for rent suggests that conditions in the GTA tightened over the past
year and that the vacancy rate has remained very low. Strong competition between renters for available units has prompted continued upward pressure in average rents,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Senior Manager of Market Analysis.
