Hope you had a wonderful long holiday weekend. The weather was absolutely perfect and looks like its going to be a hot one for August as well.
Here are the stats from the July market here in Waterloo Region and it continues to stay strong. There were 586 residential properties sold in July, representing an increase of 15.1 per cent compared to the same month last year.
Home sales in July included 322 detached (up 16.4 per cent), and 62 condominium apartments (down 6.1 per cent). Sales also included 148 townhouses (up 45.1 per cent) and 42 semi-detached homes (down 22.2 per cent). On a year-to-date basis we’re seeing sales have increased slightly over last year.
The average sale price of all residential properties sold in July increased by 9.3 per cent to $521,101 compared to July 2018. Detached homes sold for an average price of $613,244 (an increase of 5.4 per cent compared to July of last year. During this same period, the average sale price for an apartment-style condominium was $339,137 for an increase of 15.9 per cent. Townhomes and semis sold for an average of $414,062 (up 17 per cent) and $434,136 (up 11.9 per cent) respectively.
The median price of all residential properties sold last month increased 10.8 per cent to $489,450 and the median price of a detached home during the same period increased by 8.8 per cent to $575,750
There were 844 residential properties listed in K-W and area last month, an increase of 12.8 per cent compared to July of 2018, and an increase of 10.4 per cent in comparison to the previous ten-year average for the month of July The total number of homes available for sale in active status at the end of July totaled 863, a decrease of 8.7 per cent compared to July of last year, and well below the previous ten-year average of 1,467 listings for July. Months Supply of Homes for sale stood at 1.7 months in July, which is 15 percent lower than the same period last year. That is still making it a tight market for buyers and sellers.
There is still strong consumer demand that is making for a busier than normal market for the middle of summer.
The average days it took to sell a home in June was 22 days, which is the same number of days it took in July 2018.

I hope you are staying warm during this very unpredictable winter weather. I am sure the kids are loving all the snow days they have had in the past weeks. The stats are out from January and the Kitchener Waterloo Real Estate market enjoyed a great month of home sales.
January was surprisingly busy with an above average number of home sales. There were 307 residential sales in January, an increase of 14.6 percent compared to January 2018 as well as the number of units sold last month were up nearly fifteen percent compared to the previous ten-year average for January.
Total residential sales in January included 189 detached (up 26 percent), and 80 condominium units (up 19.4 percent) which includes any property regardless of style (i.e. semis, townhomes, apartment, detached etc.). Sales also included 20 semi-detached homes (down 28.6 percent) and 17 freehold townhouses (down 19 percent).
The average sale price of all residential properties sold in January increased 5.3 percent to $484,076 compared to January 2018. Detached homes sold for an average price of $564,718 an increase of 1.9 percent compared to January of last year. During this same period, the average sale price for an apartment style condominium was $303,379 for an increase of 22.1 percent. Townhomes and semis sold for an average of $368,227 (up 0.7 percent) and $407,852 (up 4.6 percent) respectively. The median price of all residential properties sold last month increased 5.3 percent to $455,000, and the median price of a detached home during the same period increased 7.1 percent to $530,000
It was a positive sign to see an uptick in the number of residential listings hitting market, however, the total number of homes available for sale continues to perform well below historical averages. There were 585 homes listed in K-W and area last month, an increase of 25.5 percent compared to January of 2018. The number of active residential listings at the end of January totaled 810, which is 11.4 percent more than January of last year, but still well below the previous ten-year average of 1,189 listings for January. The average days it took to sell a home in January was 26 days, which is 5 days less than the amount of time it took in January 2018.
We have a positive outlook for 2019. I think we’re going to see home prices remain steady or have small increases, sales will continue to be strong but we’re also beginning to see more homes being listed for sale to increase our inventory and provide buyers with additional options. So long as everything else remains equal Waterloo Region should remain a strong and stable market.
If you have any questions or are thinking of buying or selling in the coming months, please give me a call at 519-497-4646 and we can sit down for a coffee and talk about some strategies that would work best for your family needs.
Have a great weekend!
