Power of Three

REAL ESTATE MARKET SNAPSHOT – Q1 2022 IN REVIEW

Our focus for this article, as usual, will be on the 3 key trading areas and types of homes with which we have the most expertise – re-sales of residential condominiums and detached homes in the Blue Mountains, Collingwood and Clearview.  2022’s first quarter shows no sign of change from the lack of supply vs high demand economy we’ve observed for several years now.  Jan, Feb & March each only offered 4 weeks of inventory!  The pace of sales increased slightly to 20 days average time for a property to sell (24 in Q4), and the average sale price increased again, up 16.7% to $1,222,338 from Q4’s $1,047,179Notably, the average sale went over the asking price by 2.7%.  The parameters for “most sales” moved a lot higher with most in the $800,000 – $1.3M price range, 26 sold over $2M, 7 over $3M, and 5 over $4M.  Indeed, in the Blue Mountains now, the average cost for a freehold home is over the $2M mark.
