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.

Historical Gem For Sale In Blackstock, Ontario

 

Welcome to 3482 Church Street located in Blackstock Ontario

Built in 1870, and still retaining many of its original characteristics, welcome to 3482 Church Street, a beautiful heritage home showcasing many modern updates, and situated within Scugog’s historic Blackstock community.
Nestled amongst a lush tree canopy within this quiet rural town, the home showcases a recent addition to the original homestead, as well as substantially sized front and back yards that can be transformed into dream outdoor living and entertaining spaces.

The majesty of its past remains present through its original brick exterior accented with gingerbread details, and the covered porch which wraps around three sides of the home.

The hardwood floors of the entrance hallway and foyer, as well as the open concept living and dining rooms, were replaced in the 1940s, and have since been refinished and stained, giving the floors a more contemporary look. The arched entryway between the formal living and dining areas has a set of solid wood bi-fold doors that maintains a separation between the rooms when necessary.

Original finishes can be still found throughout most of the home, and some of these include many of the door and window trims, extra deep baseboards, crown moldings, as well as the hand crafted staircase and its hardwood bannister to the second level.

The well-appointed powder room showcases a reclaimed hemlock hardwood floor, an updated vanity, wall moldings, and its overall elegance is enhanced by a chandelier.

Off the main hallway is a room with new broadloom which is beautifully suited as a family room or home office, and which also has a separate entrance from the porch as well as a large bay window overlooking the side yard.

A newer addition to the home, the incredibly spacious kitchen and breakfast area is finished with reclaimed hemlock hardwood floors, and showcases a built-in bookshelf, pot lighting and modern ceiling light fixtures, updated modern cabinetry with ample pantry space, built-in fridge and dishwasher as well as stainless steel oven with gas cooktop, hand hammered copper sink, and has retained some of the original brick exterior as an accent wall.

The upper level showcases the original hardwood floors of the home, and also features updates such as new broadloom and ceiling light fixtures – while a small room at the end of the hallway has a folding ladder to gain access to the rooftop tower.

All the bedrooms are graciously sized rest spaces, and the master bedroom showcases a gorgeous chandelier, wall moldings that highlight the coved ceiling, and a 2-pc ensuite with pedestal sink.

The updated family washroom is finished with a freestanding bathtub with gorgeous chandelier above it, a space-saving vanity, and a separate shower area.

The second bedroom has two entryways, one off the main hallway and the other off the secondary hallway, and features large windows and ample closet storage – and the third bedroom also has large windows and plenty of closet space, as well as a pedestal sink for guest or family convenience.

The new addition also features an unspoiled living space on this level, which has the potential to be converted into a dream master bedroom.

Beautifully updated, this historically significant home is within walking distance to places of worship, a convenience store, the Blackstock Recreation Complex, Cartwright Central Public School, and Cartwright High School; and is just a short 10 minute drive to nearby Port Perry for many more everyday conveniences and amenities.

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.
