April 2018 Oakville Real Estate Update information shows a market that is changing from a strong sellers’ market to a buyers’ market. Year over year, the sale price of an Oakville home decreased between 3.66 per cent and 7.63 per cent depending on the type of property. The exception, condo apartment pricing increased by 5.43 per cent.

“Recent polling conducted for TREB by Ipsos tells us that the great majority of buyers are purchasing a home within which to live. This means these buyers are treating home ownership as a long-term investment. A strong and diverse labour market and continued population growth based on immigration should continue to underpin long-term home price appreciation,” said Mr. Syrianos

In April 2018 a total of 284 residential sales were recorded. The number of new listings was 709, with a total number of 1007 active listings. There was 3.4 months of inventory.

“The comparison of this year’s sales and price figures to last year’s record peak masks the fact that market conditions should support moderate increases in home prices as we move through the second half of the year, particularly for condominium apartments and higher density low-rise home types. Once we are past the current policy-based volatility, home owners should expect to see the resumption of a moderate and sustained pace of price growth in line with a strong local economy and steady population growth,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis

Considering how close the selling price is to the sold price, sellers are being realistic, and buyers have time to consider all the facts.
