The real estate market is not slowing down for anyone (even with a world-wide pandemic) and the numbers speak for themselves. 🚀
Over 8,700 total sales have set a new record for the month of November (this means ⬆️25% more homes sold, year over year).
Overall, sale prices have increased (averaging all property types) with the average home selling for $955,615 (slightly down from last month). Up a total of ⬆️13.73% since last November. This amounts to an increase in value of more than $112,000 (based on the average selling price).
The total number of new listings hitting the MLS system is up ⬆️33.5% when compared to the same time last year. Although we did notice that sales are down ⬇️35.1% from last month.
Meanwhile, pricing in the condo market continues to fall. Reporting another ⬇️2% decline in the last 30 days, equals a total of ⬇️4% drop since September.
The record pace of sales 📈has continued, all the while maintaining the divide between the condo 🏙and freehold market. Freehold homes made up almost 70% of the total sales in November.
Why is this happening? There are a number of contributing factors; whether it's the lowest borrowing rates that we’ve seen (maybe, ever), or the availability of new condo listings coming up for sale (worth noting, the number of listings appears to be slowing overall, which is typical for this time of year). The desire for more living space has 🏠 created a strong demand in freehold homes. This has a shortage of homes available for sale, which explains the steady 👀double-digit price growth.
We are starting to see a slow-down in the number of sales with sales down ⬇️35% in the last month (although that is typical for this time of year). Yet, since this time last year, sales are still up an overall 33%. In contrast, the condo market is more balanced ↔️ than previous years, with its downshift. With more than 30% new listings then last November, buyers continue to take advantage of the expansive inventory available to them. All of this has contributed to a decline in condo prices of over ⬇️ 4% since September.
