What an exciting time for real estate! Forget what you have read in the papers or heard on the T.V. The real estate market has rebounded and we are on now on pace to break all time sales records in Toronto, Oakville and Burlington real estate markets. If you don't believe me, look at the sales numbers for the month of June.
How do the numbers of 2009 compare to the pre-recession real estate sales numbers? Well, just have a look!
% Change from June 2008 to June 2009
• Toronto Real Estate Board has reported a 27% increase in units sold from this time last year and a 2% increase in average sale price from 2008.
• Burlington/Hamilton Real Estate Board has reported a 19% increase in units sold from 2008 and an increase in average sale price of 1.9% from this time last year.
• Oakville/Milton Real Estate Board has reported a 21% increase in units sold but they are still trying to catch up to last years average sale prices.
• Burlington on its own is up 19% in units sold (417 units sold in 2009 compared to 350 units in 2008) and an amazing 6% increase in average sale prices from June 2008! ($374,166 in 2009 compared to $354,864 in 2008).
If you were waiting for the real estate market to bottom, I'm afraid you have missed it! Inventory is being reduced and we are now moving out of a ‘buyer's market' into a more stable, balanced real estate market.
