RECORD HIGHS WITH 36 % INCREASE MAKE DURHAM HOTTEST MARKET

Article Taken Directly from the Durham Region Association of REALTORS® (DRAR) February 2017 Newsletter 

Durham Region Association of REALTORS® (DRAR) President Roger Bouma reported 595 residential transactions in January 2017, a 17 per cent increase from the same time last year. “Strong demand and low inventory are a few key factors in the booming price growth in Durham Region,” stated Bouma. There were 735 new listings in January 2017, a 7 per cent decrease compared to 788 in January 2016. “We’re seeing record highs in average selling price in January,” said Bouma. The average selling price in Durham reached $608,417 last month. In comparison, the average selling price was $446,117 during the same period last year; a 36 per cent increase. Homes have continued to sell quickly in an average of 15 days compared to 23 days last year. “This is a story that will continue to make headlines as strong price growth, short supply, and low interest rates continue in 2017,” said Bouma. In the past 10 years, the Durham Region’s average selling price has more than doubled, from $257,850 in 2006 to $533,828 in 2016. “There is no doubt that the Durham Region will continue to grow as we enter 2017, we’re already seeing a dramatic increase from the same time last year.” “The province-wide news that Durham Region will be receiving more funding from the gas tax program for transportation infrastructure is just another example of the great quality of life for families that live or wish to live in Durham,” said Bouma. Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca announced on February 1 that Durham Region will be receiving approximately $10 million by 2019. “This news, coupled with the extension of the 407 east to the 115, the expansion of the GO Train, and the affordability of living, makes Durham Region one of the hottest markets in Ontario.

Amazing Market Stats Across Durham Region

First Quarter Market Statistics

There has been a 13% increase in the average home prices within the Durham Region .

In March 2015 the average selling price reached $430,291.00 When compared to last year in March 2014 the average selling price was $380,267.00. Low Interest rates Are keeping home ownership insight for many people and the low rates have also allowed many to make that “Move Up” to a larger more spacious home even with the increase In home prices.

Average Selling Price – Q1 2015

(Print out the PDF above to check out the stats for the area you live in)

Townhouses remain the strongest growth sector across Durham Region with that sector accounting 15.3 % increase in value when compared to the same time
last year.

Another contributing factor to this growth is the lower than expected inventory levels. Combine that with the fact that there are more buyers in market place today than last year and
continued lower inventory levels are causing Buyers to compete (sometimes aggressively) in order to acquire a property of their dreams. The Competition between the buyers has also had
a strong affect on the market place, All you have to do is look at the average list to sale price for 2015 at 101% compared to 99% in 2014.

Durham Region is still experiencing a strong sellers market, however, with the summer months not too far off we can anticipate a leveling off in the market place, possibly making it a
good time for buyers to continue looking while everyone else heads off on summer vacations and to their cottages.

If you know of any family members or friends who are considering selling their home or purchasing a home please have them contact me and I will be happy to assist them and provide the
Research, Knowledge and Market Insight they need.
