Media Release: Niagara Association of REALTORS® December Market Report

January 9th, 2018, Niagara - The Niagara Association of REALTORS® (NAR) reported 403 property sales processed through the NAR Multiple Listing Service (MLS®) system in December.

Rising demand and low inventory set the tone for a seller’s market in Niagara through 2017. As unaffordability increased in the GTA, more homebuyers expanded their search area as far as Niagara.

Speculators and investors also flocked to the area in search of real estate, further reducing inventory in the face of increasing demand. Single-story detached homes were the hot commodity in the region, contributing to a 23 per cent price increase in the year-over-year average residential sale price.

In July, we saw that the real estate market started to show signs of cooling down as we headed into the Summer months. The number of listings remained high but visits to the website showed a slight decline. While conversations on social media slowed down, RE/MAX continues to own the conversation in Canada. On the global front, we remain fairly steady with an increase in the number of offices meaning that we continue to grow our brand presence around the world.
