Home sales in the Greater Toronto Area fell 35 per cent in September compared with the same month last year, although the average selling price rose. The Toronto Real Estate Board has said that sales of all major types of residential property fell, but the biggest move was a 40.4 per cent drop in sales of detached homes.
The average selling price for all types of property sold in September climbed 2.6 per cent from a year ago, rising to $775,546. The average price was also up 5.9 per cent from $732,039 in August – the first month-over-month increase since April, when the average hit a record high of $918,285.

City launches public engagement campaign for a Future Ready Brampton
With the launch of the “Future Ready Brampton” public engagement campaign, the City is asking residents to think bigger about what the city should look like in five, 10, 25 years and beyond.
The City is developing a vision to set Brampton apart from other suburban cities and to position it as a hub for jobs and innovation, a sustainable future city, and one that people are proud to call home. That vision, set to be presented in spring 2018, will be a reflection of feedback and ideas from residents and businesses across Brampton.
How to get involved:
We’re thinking bigger about our brilliant future – but to really be successful, we need our residents’ bright ideas. There are a number of ways to get involved between now and October 31, when engagement wraps up:
- Visit www.brampton.ca/futureready to share your bright ideas or vote for ideas that have already been submitted.
- Chat with the City street teams at events and locations throughout Brampton this fall. Event listing can be found at www.brampton.ca/futureready
- Email email@example.com, or send questions and comments via direct message to the City’s Twitter or Facebook
