The January 2020 Oakville Real Estate statistics are indicating that the market is heating up. If you purchased a condo or townhouse in January 2019, your property’s value may have gone up by double digits. 

Looking at listings on Realtor.ca (February 6, 2020), the lowest priced condominium apartment is a 2 bedroom 1 bath in a low rise located with in walking distance Abbey Park High School. It has two parking spaces, a wood burning fireplace and has been updated with granite counters in the kitchen and bath. The monthly fee is $475.

There are only 7 condominiums apartments listed under $500,000, which explains the soaring prices.

According to the Toronto Real Estate Board, the number of properties sold in Oakville for January was 179.

“A year seems to have made a big difference. It is clear that many buyers who were on the sidelines due to the OSFI stress test are moving back into the market, driving very strong year-over-year sales growth in the detached segment,” said Jason Mercer, TRREB’s Director of Market Analysis and Service Channels.

Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 4,581 sales through TREB’s MLS® System in January 2020. This result was up by a 15.45 per cent compared to January 2019. The GTA’s average home price increased to $839,363  or 12.34 per cent increase from December 2018.

“The real estate market continues to be driven by an excessive shortage of needed listings with reports of market segments returning to the days of multiple offers. The $500K to $1M segment in all of Halton is in great demand,” says OMDREB President Richard Weima.
