Market UpdateStarting the Year With a Historically Low Number of Listings
We’ve made it through 2020 and are eagerly waiting to see what 2021 has in store! January has already shown us that the real estate market continues to be strong, with there being a high demand for properties across Grey Bruce and Owen Sound.
The REALTORS® Association of Grey Bruce Owen Sound has reported that 149 homes were sold through MLS in January alone. This marks an increase of only two sales (1.4%) compared to January of last year. We have collectively not seen this level of sales in January in five years.
The record-breaking streak continues! Despite fewer listings, the price of homes sold increased, with the average reaching $549,056 in January. This marks a 33.8% increase from January 2020. Overall, the dollar value of homes sold equalled $81.8 million, increasing by 35.6% from the previous year and establishing another market record.
With 173 new residential listings hitting the market in January, we saw a decrease of 21.4% of new listings compared to last year. There were 284 active residential listings at month’s end, more than half lower (57.6%) than the previous year. There haven’t been these few active listings in January in more than thirty years!
Properties are continuing to move quickly with the spring season almost upon us. If you are interested in selling, contact us! We will walk you through the process and help take your listing from For Sale to Sold.
