December Market Report In Our Communities

A look back at December 2020 compared to December 2019 and why it’s a great time to list your Property for Sale.

The whole world was happy to see the end of 2020 but we’re not quite done with it yet as we look back on the final month of that last year to have an idea of how the 2021 market could begin.

As we transitioned into the festive period, we saw a big spike in sales prices through December. To round out the year, we saw a massive 34% increase in sales prices across our communities. In Tay Township alone, we saw over 64% increase in sales prices. Even as restrictions and lockdowns increased across Midland, Penetanguishene, Tiny and Tay, we continued to see a very impressive rebound from Covid-19.

The number of sales across our communities saw an increase year over year at 19%. With less homes on the market to start with, this spike in sales leaves us with a big lack of inventory across the region. If you’re looking to sell your home this winter, this is great news for you! Prices are up, interest rates are down and your home faces less competition on the market whilst there is a host of motivated buyers looking to complete their home search!

Real Estate has been classified as an essential service through all the lockdowns and restrictions this year. We listened, we learned and we adapted to our new way of work, always striving to maintain the level of professionalism and service that you would expect of us. We were proud to be able to help so many members of our community find their shelter in the storm this year. 

2020 will forever be remembered around the world, but closer to home it was a special year for us all as we saw “For Sale On Georgian Bay” founded. We hit the ground running as we navigated the Covid Real Estate Market whilst re-introducing ourselves and our years of experience to the community.

Covid 19 Grey Lockdown: What to expect when buying or selling your home.

With cases on the rise throughout Ontario, we’re all preparing for what a Grey Lockdown looks like. Your For Sale On Georgian Bay Realtors continue to minimize direct contact by using digital and virtual alternatives where possible.

If you’re looking to buy or sell a home across the Georgian Bay region, you can depend on your local professionals to take the necessary precautions to keep everyone involved protected, while still providing the knowledge and expertise you expect.

Here’s what to expect:

  • All in-person Open Houses are prohibited.
  • Showings by appointment are permitted.
  • We will maintain a minimum of six feet apart at all times.
  • We will use personal protective equipment and sanitize our hands before and after any showings.
  • We will avoid shaking hands.
  • Expect a limit on the number of persons that can attend a showing.
  • We will encourage the avoidance of touching any surfaces in the home, eg. light switches, door handles, door handles and cabinet doors.
  • We will not allow the use of any bathroom facilities at the property.
  • We will not share the use of any electronics (phones, tablets etc.), pens or any other personal property during the showing.
  • We will comply with requirements of the seller during the showing.

With the use of virtual showings or in-person safe showings as a way to see and view properties, your buying or selling journey might be different, but not diminished.

If you have any questions about how the process might work, don’t hesitate to contact us, we’ll be able to guide you through the whole process. With For Sale On Georgian Bay, we’ll be with you – every step of the way.
