Alright, let's get back to our monthly recap. The real estate market has not slowed down, October was another killer month. 

  • The total number of sales is still climbing. With new records for the month of October, sales are up 25% ⤴️ from the same time last year.

  • Overall, sale prices have increased with the average home selling for $968,318.  That's a ⬆️13.7% increase year over year (based on the average price, that equals an approximate $125K increase). Keep in mind, this includes all property types.

  • Homes are selling 27.3% faster this year than October last year. Once a home is listed on the MLS system, it takes approximately 17 days  to sell. (not including the time it takes to close which is typically anywhere between 30-90 days later). Condos are taking more time to sell. On average it takes 22 days.

  • On the flip side of the housing market, condos continue to decline. Sale prices have seen a 2% decline in just the last 30 days alone. 

There has been a clear divide between the condo and freehold market. With detached homes making up almost 50% of the market sales this month, home sales have continued to break records year over year. A combination of circumstances has contributed to what we are seeing today; whether it's pent-up demand from the downturn of the spring market, the record low interest rates or the economy slowly recovering in some sectors. The demand for freehold homes has created a shortage of inventory which has been reflected with sale prices in double-digit growth. In contrast, the condo market has continued to see a ⬇️downshift . With more than double the number of new listings hitting the market than the same time last year, buyers are benefitting from more options, which has plummeted prices down 2% just since last month.  

If you are looking to make a move this year, then understanding how these stats and the segmented markets impact you is crucial. Let’s discuss your options.
