Real Estate Market December 2021

Real Estate Market December 2021

In TREBB, a record number of sales were reported in December. Up 7.7% from the previous high in 2016 and up 28% compared to 2020. The demand / supply ratio can be clearly seen when you look that new listings were only up 6.2% compared to 2020. This has resulted in very tight and competitive market conditions and an all-time high average selling price of $1,095,475 – an increase of 17.8% compared to the previous 2020 record of $929,636.

Looking specifically at the GTA, 6,031 sales were reported in December. A strong result historically, but still down by more than 1,000 transactions (-15.7%) compared to the record of 7,154 set in December 2020. Over the same period, new listings were down by 11.9% to 5,174.

In Hamilton-Burlington, RAHB reported 811 sales of residential properties located within the RAHB market area. Sales decreased by 32% since last month, and they were down 11% since December 2020. New listings fell by nearly 50% since last month (note there is usually a seasonal slowdown anyway) and they were also down 6% since last December. The average price for residential properties was $931,787 which was an increase of 2% from last month, and an increase of 27% from December 2020. The inventory available dropped even further to 0.4 months of inventory. This is the third month in a row we have seen consistent inventory drops in this area.

Consistently we are seeing a supply issue, the extent to which has never been seen before. Realtors and real estate boards are urging all levels of government to work together to increase supply across Ontario.
