“As we can see from the data, activity has resumed to pre-COVID-19 levels, and is actually surpassing the levels we would typically see in the summer due to pent-up demand over the last several months. What is also affecting the market – and more specifically the increase in average price – is the low number of active listings. With less available, buyers have limited choice and the market favours sellers.” says RAHB President Kathy Della-Nebbia.
