January 2021: sales activity signals strong start to the year

January sales were the highest they have been for the month since 2014, as housing market momentum from the end of 2020 carried over into the start of 2021.


Sales activity improved across all product types and across all price ranges.


“Discount lending rates are exceptionally low, which is likely attracting all types of buyers back into the market,” said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.


“New listings in the market were also slightly higher than what was available over the past two months, which is providing more options to purchasers.”

The number of January sales were the highest they have been for the month since 2014, as housing market momentum from the end of 2020 carried over into the start of 2021.


Sales activity improved across all product types and across all price ranges.
