The average price for August mid-month transactions was $412,934 – up eight per cent compared to the average of $383,796 recorded during the first 14 days of August 2009. “We have seen a sufficient number of buyers relative to sellers over the summer months to support continued year-over-year price growth in the GTA,” said Jason Mercer,
