(July 20, 2013 – Hamilton, Ontario) The REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) reported 1367 properties sold through the RAHB Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in June.  This represents a 2.7 per cent increase in the number of sales over June of last year.

“After a record-breaking month for sales in May, June settled into more of a normal pattern,” said RAHB CEO.  “While June sales were higher than last year at this time, they fell a little below the 10-year average for the month.”

Seasonally adjusted* sales of residential properties were 4.4 per cent higher than the same month last year, with the average sale price up 8.8 per cent for the month.  Seasonally adjusted numbers of new listings were 2.2 per cent higher than the same month last year.

Actual overall residential sales were 1.9 per cent higher than the previous year at the same time.  Residential freehold sales were 2.6 per cent higher than last year while the condominium market saw a decrease in sales of 1.3 per cent.  The average sale price of freehold properties showed an increase of 6.8 per cent over the same month last year; the condominium market saw an increase of 10.1 per cent when compared to the same period last year.

The average sale price is based on the total dollar volume of all residential properties sold.  Average sale price information can be useful in establishing long term trends, but should not be used as an indicator that specific properties have increased or decreased in value.

The average days on market decreased from 38 days to 37 days in the freehold market and increased from 40 days to 46 days for condominiums.

Year to date, listings are down 1.1 per cent compared to the same period last year, while sales are 3.3 per cent lower.  The average sale price for the first half of the year is 7.7 per cent higher than the same period last year.

“We are still a little behind where we were last year in numbers of sales and listings for the first half of the year, but the gap is decreasing as the year progresses,” added Godsoe.  “Our average sale price continues to be higher than it was the first six months of last year.  How recent announcements of increases in some mortgage rates will affect the rest of the year is still to be seen.”
