I hope everyone is happy, healthy and just as comfortable as the real estate market.
Fresh off the press, February's MLS statistics - these numbers confirm that real estate is LOCAL.
"If we want to know the weather, we don't listen to the Toronto radio and TV networks - we listen to our local experts - the same should be true for real estate".
February's listing inventory, which is the number of listings currently on the market increased by 24%. This means that buyers had more properties to choose from than last February, which should indicate a more balanced market place. It's fantastic to be a buyer!
The number of sales processed in the month was 672, eight less than last year at 680, and dollar volume was down 2% at $172 million vs. $176 million in February 2014.
Most active price range was $250,000 to $299,999 and took 22% of the market, average days on market for residential-detached sales was at 34 days, one day quicker than last year.
The dominant price range in condominium sales was between $150,000 to $199,999 - it captured 33% of the market, followed by $250,000 to $299,999 at 23% of sales.
