Way More Buyers than Sellers in Durham Region!

May has come and gone and there was no shortage of buyers here is Durham Region!

DRAR or Durham Region Association has released numbers for may and they are both good if you are looking to sell. The current president of (DRAR), Sandra O’Donohue, has stated in her report that 1,445 residential transactions took place in May 2016. This represents an increase of 8.7 per cent compared to the same period last year. Sandra was quoted as saying “There is no shortage of buyers in the market today,”

In contrast, there were 1,790 new listings in May 2016 compared to 1,851 May 2015; a 3.4 per cent decrease. This is the main reason for why prices have risen and the number of offers on some homes has  increased into double digits.  “Home prices have shown strong year-over-year increases in the Durham Region,” added O’Donohue.

The average selling price in Durham reached $531,051 last month. In comparison, the average selling price was $449,837 during the same period last year. This represents a  15.3 per cent increase. Similarly to last month, the continued increase in prices has caused homes to sell faster, selling in an average of 11 days compared to 15 days last year.

Buyers are more frequently having to remove conditions prior to making an offer, which in some cases makes the Buyers more prepared. Simply put Buyers have to know exactly what they are qualified for and many are now taking the advice of having a preemptive home inspection completed prior to making an offer. A Preemptive Home Inspection is done in just under an hour and looks at only major components of a home simply to give buyers that extra piece of mind.

Stats and Figures are taken from the DRAR Durham Region Association of Realtors monthly E bulletin for June 2016.

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.
