While the frigid days of winter might be slowly coming to an end, one thing that has undoubtedly remained red hot is Toronto real estate -- with the condo market serving as no exception.

As many buyers continue to be priced out of the ground-related home segment, buyers are being pushed to compromise, with condominiums serving as a viable -- and relatively more affordable -- alternative.

According to the latest data from the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB), Toronto's condo sector has officially recovered from its pandemic-era slump, achieving both a record year and fourth quarter for sales in 2021. In fact, a total of 7,815 units traded hands between October and December — a year-over-year increase of 21% — despite buyers contending with some of the tightest market conditions seen in two decades.

However, while sales were up, new listings plunged 29% from the same quarter in 2020, leading overall active inventory to decline by two-thirds.

What's more, demand for new condos in the Toronto area was especially strong in 2021, with condo sales reaching their second-highest level of all time, reflecting an impressive resurgence from the pandemic’s initial impact, according to the year-end 2021 Condominium Market Survey from Urbanation.

The pre-construction segment has also roared back to life, with developments up significantly last year, with 92 projects — totalling 26,835 units — brought to market, which is up 49%. Last year was also the third-highest year in terms of new supply, behind 2017 and 2011 when 29,529 and 28,448 units were launched, respectively.

The influx of new supply was met with voracious demand, hitting a new record with an 85% absorption rate — well above the 10-year average of 66%. Available units are flying off the proverbial shelves, as 85% of projects sold at least 70% of available inventory within a time frame of 2.6 months (based on an average project size of 270 units). Demand was even more fierce in Q4, with 76% of all new units sold, compared to 55% at the end of 2020.

More importantly, this momentum is showing no signs of slowing, with an impressive number of condo launches gearing up to hit the market and kick off the busy spring season.

For any and all interested in the local condo scene, here are 21 Toronto area condo launches to have on your radar this spring.
