December 2018 Oakville Real Estate Update is not looking bad, it isn’t looking good, it just is. It is balanced. Nothing that isn’t typical of a holiday month, where 2 weeks of the month are quiet.

Comparing the number of properties sold from December 2017 of 121 to December 2018 of 121 exhibits a stability according to the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB).  On the other side, the Oakville Milton District Real Estate Board (OMDREB) reported a downward trend.

Garry Bhuara, President of TREB stated, “Higher borrowing costs coupled with the new mortgage stress test certainly prompted some households to temporarily move to the sidelines to reassess their housing options. With this said, it is important to note that market conditions were improved in the second half of the year, both from a sales and pricing standpoint.”

OMDREB states the number of units sold dropped by 32. It appears that Toronto Agents are not listing Oakville Properties on the OMDREB system.

The number of new listings was 159 with a total number of 553 active listings. There was 3.5 months of inventory. Properties are selling for 95% of list, and typically sold in 28 days. Often properties come off the market during the month of December and re-list in late January early February.
