October Home Sales Ease in Kitchener Waterloo
Home sales in October showed some signs of easing in Waterloo Region with an overall decrease of 9.4%. The Multiple listing System (Mls) showed a total of 435 home sales compared to 480 during the same period in 2014.
Here is the breakdown:
Residential sales this October included 284 single detached homes (down 6.9% from last October), 20 semi-detached (down 23.1%), 37 townhomes (up 5.7%) and 92 condominium units (down 19.3%).
The great news is average prices are up again with an average price for a single detached home in October selling for an average price of $417,891 an increase of 8.9% compared to the same month last year.
The average sale price for a condominium was $242,280 an increase of 14.3%, while the average sale price of all residential sales in KW and Area increased 9.9% to $363,438 compared to October 2014.
Townhomes and semi-detached properties sold for an average of $300,724 (down 2.5%) and $265,000 (up 2.2%) respectively.
The Kitchener Waterloo housing market continues to show long term stability and strength and the shifts in average prices and month to month fluctuations are normal, along with sales easing as we approach the end of the year. Keep in mind you always need to use caution when looking at averages. The increase in detached and overall home prices are due in part to six home sales in October 2015 over $900,000 compared to zero sales in that range the previous year.
