Urbanation April 2022 Report - 2

Key Points:

  • Although declining 22% year-over-year due to a sharp reduction in supply, condo lease activity in Q1 was 50% above the decade average.
  • Despite relatively stronger growth in rents in the City of Toronto during the past year, the rent premium for the 416 vs. the 905 remained near an all-time low in Q1-2022 at 14%.
  • Active condo rental listings dropped 57% annually in Q1-2022.
  • Average condo rents were up 3.1% quarter-over-quarter, the largest Q4-to-Q1 increase recorded in Urbanation’s historical database going back to 2010 and more than three times faster than the typical seasonal increase.
  • At an average of $3.37 psf, average condo rents were up 15.8% since the Q1-2021 low of $2.91 psf and reached their highest level since Q4-2019 ($3.39 psf).
  • Vacancy rates in stabilized buildings completed since 2005 fell from a high of 6.4% in Q1-2021 to 1.8% in Q1-2022, nearly returning to the 1.0% level recorded before the pandemic.
  • The market appears to be in a strong position to absorb the multi-decade high of over 7,500 rental units scheduled for completion this year.
