Best January Ever!
February 6, 2007 -- The new year got off to a fast start, with 5,173 sales of existing homes in January, TREB President Dorothy Mason announced today. "This figure is up 13 per cent over last January, and up six per cent over the 4,869 sales recorded in January of 2002, which was the previous record for the month."
Meanwhile, average prices climbed in January to $353,724, up five per cent over December and up six per cent over the $332,687 recorded in January 2006. "While one shouldn't read too much into a single month's result," the President said. "January's record breaking performance is an encouraging sign for the year ahead."
Breaking down the total, 1,975 sales were reported in TREB's 28 West districts and averaged $335,116; 878 sales were reported in the 14 Central districts and averaged $462,211; 1,082 sales were reported in the 23 North districts and averaged $383,806; and 1,238 sales were reported in TREB's 21 East districts and averaged $280,178.
In January, Mississauga (W12-W20) recorded 667 sales, a 10 per cent increase over the 2006 total for the same month. The average price was $335,252, up 10 per cent over the $305,464 recorded during January of 2006. In addition, there were 219 sales of Detached homes in the Mississauga, which averaged $478,889, a seven per cent increase over the same time period last year ($448,889).
Cars are a major source of smog in urban areas. So driving less helps everyone's health, particularly children, the elderly and people at risk of cardio respiratory problems.
Stormwater ponds and green areas that slow water down or let it soak in, reduce demand for costly sewers and water treatment.
Half of the greenhouse gases from energy use by individual Canadians come from passenger road transportation, like cars. In the Toronto area, greenhouse gases from weekday passenger travel generated by people living in mixed-use, pedestrian and transit-friendly neighbourhoods near the urban core are about 1/3 of those by people living in dispersed, strictly residential neighbourhoods on the urban fringe.
