The DRAR keeps us up to date on the market:
Durham Region Association of REALTORS® (DRAR) President Roger Bouma reported 845 residential transactions in October 2017, a 23 per cent decrease from October 2016. However, this was a slight increase over the previous month.
October also saw the number of new listings in Durham increase month-over-month to 1,698, up from 1,096 new listings in September, and higher than the 1,327 in October 2016.
“We’re continuing to see an increase of average selling price year-over-year,” said Bouma. The average selling price in Durham reached $575,602 last month, a slight decrease from the $578,666 average selling price in September, but a 2 per cent increase over the average of $564,989 during the same period in 2016.
“Durham Region continuously offers the best real estate value in the GTA,” said Bouma. “Buyers can benefit from opportunities to buy in a more relaxed market, without multiple offers, while sellers enjoy an increase in their home’s value over previous years.”
