September 2016 Status Report

At the beginning of each month we get a status report that shows how the local real estate market is doing compared to previous years. Here are some key highlights from the September Status Report.


· Overall – When looking at the sales figures for this month, sales have been flat with a <1% change in unit volume and a small increase in the total sales volume and average sale price. However, there are some bright spots within the residential and land classes. See the details below:

· Residential Sales

· Condominiums - Unit sales up again this month by 6%, total volume sold is up 13% and average sale price up 7%. Condominium sales have done well over June, July and August; however, sales have fallen off in September. The MLS will keep an eye on these numbers to determine if this is a long term trend.
