KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON (April 4, 2013) –– Residential property sales through the Multiple Listing
System (MLS® System) of the Kitchener-Waterloo Association of REALTORS® (KWAR) were in keeping
with the 10-year historical average for the first quarter.

During the first quarter of 2013, there were a total of 1,397 home sales, 7.6 percent below last year’s
total for the same period.

“Home sales have been affected by tightened mortgage rules,” says Dietmar Sommerfeld, President
of KWAR. “First time buyers are most impacted but at the same time low interest rates should help
foster a healthy upcoming spring market.”

Home sales in the month of March totalled 607 units, 9.4 percent lower than the same month a year
ago and 1.5 percent below the 5-year average. March’s sales included 393 single detached homes
(down 12.1 %), 107 condominium units (down 12.3 %), 58 semi-detached (up 5.5) and 43 freehold
townhouses (up 7.5%).

While sales were down last month compared to the same period a year ago home sales have
increased month over month since January of this year and the average sale price of all residential
sales increased 2.9 percent to $320,229 compared with March 2012. Single detached homes sold for
an average price of $367,714 an increase of 3.4 percent compared to last year. In the condominium
market prices were up 3.6%, with the average condo unit selling for $206,298.
