One last look back at 2022 as we take in the December Market Stats. We saw a large decrease in sales activity where December sales were down 48% compared to 2021. For a few months in a row now, active listings continued to surge, across our communities we saw 349% rise in active listings. There’s lots of opportunities for Buyers right now but don’t forget that seller’s are still getting top dollar for their properties. Although prices are down (1.7%), it’s important to remember that, year to date, the average sale price is up 7.7% compared to this point last year.
In our local communities, we saw the active listing trends continue, a lot more inventory in Penetanguishene with a staggering 2600% increase and in Tiny with a 507% increase. We also saw large inventory increases in Midland and Tay throughout December. Prices stayed fairly consistent compared to last year with very minimal decreases In Midland, Tiny & Tay. Across our other communities, we saw larger decreases. However, it’s important to note that there were limited sales to base this information off – Sales Activity was down almost 48% across the region. As we head into the new year, we expect a re-balancing of the market to continue with more opportunities for buyers but also attractive sales prices for sellers.
