August 2018 Oakville Real Estate Update stats infers that property values continue to increase as we enter the fall buying season. It appears that the decline of real estate values reached its bottom, this is especially true for apartments and townhouses.

“It is encouraging to see a continued resurgence in the demand for ownership housing. Many home buyers who had initially moved to the sidelines due to the Ontario Fair Housing Plan and new mortgage lending guidelines have renewed their search for a home and are getting deals done much more so than last year. In a region where the economy remains strong and the population continues to grow, ownership housing remains a solid long-term investment,” said Mr. Bhaura.

The recorded number of resident sales for August 2018 was 259. The number of new listings was 428, with a total number of 782 active listings. There was 3 months of inventory. This keeps inventory at a steady level. This is below the July 2018 months of available inventory, a positive sign for sellers.

“Market conditions in the summer of 2018, including this past August, were tighter than what was experienced in the summer of 2017. In August, the annual rate of sales growth outpaced the annual rate of new listings growth,” said Jason Mercer, TREB’s Director of Market Analysis. “This could present a problem if demand continues to accelerate over the next year, which is expected.”
