2016 Market Snapshot – Second Quarter

Q2 Report

For residential, single family homes, the WESTERN DISTRICT of Southern Georgian Bay continues the 2015 trend of a Sellers’ market with an average of over 50% of listings selling. This Quarter showed 8% less listings than Q 1 ’15 yet 14% more sales and dollar volume is up 21%. The average price for a home shows an over 3% price increase, $395K compared to $383K this Q last year. On one hand, the majority of sales took place in the $200,000 to $350,000 price range yet it was the $1.5M+ category that doubled its sales numbers.
