September Kitchener Waterloo Home Sales Reach Record High!

All i have to say is WOW!  It was a very busy month in the Kitchener Waterloo Real Estate market.

Here are the numbers…A total of 553 residential properties were sold through the Multiple Listing System (MLS®) in September, marking a new record high for the month on September. Home sales were up 14.3 percent over last year.

On a year-to-date basis 5,210 residential units have sold compared to 5,138 during the same period in 2013.

This confirms my thoughts that due to the traditional slower than usual spring market  was pushed into the summer months because of the brutal winter weather we experienced earlier in the year. It also followed up on a very active month of August.

More sales in the higher price ranges in September contributed to an 8.8 percent increase in the average price of a detached home to $385,780 compared to last year.  The average price for a condominium was $233,321, an increase of 4.8 percent over September 2013. The average sale price of all residential sales increased 7.7 percent to $338,350 over September 2013.

Residential sales in September included 359 single detached homes (up 15.1% from last September), 48 semi-detached (up 6.7%), 35 townhomes (on par with last year) and 108 condominium units (up 27.1%).

The average price of all residential properties sold year-to-date was $337,661, a 4 percent increase over 2013. The average price of a detached home to the end of the third quarter was $383,885, a 4.3 increase over 2013.

This is fantastic news once again for the Kitchener Waterloo Real Estate Market and we are looking forward to another above average month in October.
