DURHAM REGION, April 5, 2011 –DRAR (The Durham Region Association of Realtors ) has reported 981 sales of homes during March, which is a 5% increase from 653 sales in February and is only down 1.1% from 1110 sales in March of 2010 when consumers were concerned about purchasing before the HST was implemented. The average number of sales in March over the past 5 years was 916 so 2011’s spring market is in line with previous years.
The average selling price for March of $301,668 was virtually the same as in February and reflects a slight 1.4% drop from March 2010’s $306,140.
The inventory of homes on the market increased by 16.5% to 1912 listings on the MLS® System from 1640 in February, a drop of 10.3% from 2132 listings in March of last year.
A quote from of the DRAR President Dierdre Mullen “Homes in Durham Region are very affordable compared to the Toronto market and with the improving economic conditions; we’re expecting the spring market to remain relatively strong.”
