Vaughan Real Estate - Vaughan Homes For Sale - Market Update - November 2011
During my last update, I was dreading the time change and now I hear people complaining that about the weather and the lack of snow. I hope we get the white stuff before Christmas. Lots of people just aren't in the Christmas mood. For my business, this lack of cold and snow has kind of extended the fall buying period.
November was another busy month from a real estate perspective. My colleague, Richard Silver, President of TREB stated that "We have seen strong annual sales growth through the 2011 fall market. The increase in transactions has been broad-based, with strong growth across low-rise and high-rise home types throughout the Greater Toronto Area. The market has also become better supplied, with annual new listings growth outstripping that of sales. As this trend continues into 2012, we will see more balanced market conditions."
The Toronto Real Estate Board reported 7,092 residential transactions through the MLS system in November – up 11 per cent in comparison to November 2010. At the same time, the number of new listings was up by 14 per cent in comparison to last year.
The pace of November resale home transactions remained brisk in the GTA and surrounding area. From my perspective, this certainly bodes well for a strong finish to 2011.
The Toronto Real Estate Board published November market statistics by area last week and I have reviewed the key indicators and will interpret the November numbers for the Vaughan Real Estate Market. In a nutshell, the market is definitely favouring the sellers these days. Inventory remains tight and there are still quite a few buyers aggressively looking.
Here are my observations for those that are interested, on the Vaughan Real Estate Market. These quick facts and figures on Vaughan Real Estate and Vaughan Homes For Sale for November 2011 were taken directly from the numbers that the Toronto Real Estate Board publishes each month.
The Vaughan Real Estate market for November had 283 transactions in the month which was actually up from the 267 transactions reported for October. The average price of these transactions was $549,336 versus $539,00 for October. The average days on market was 28 days which is well above the year to date average of 24 days. Year to date sales have totalled 3,391 transactions with the average selling price at $546,521. Again, these are all healthy numbers.
If you break down the stats by house type, you will see that all segments remain strong. Detached sales accounted for 148 transactions for the month of November with the average selling price of these homes at $696,304 with the homes on the market for an average of 28 days.
Semi-detached homes represented only 22 transactions with an average selling price of $471,707. These homes were only on the market for an average of 12 days before selling. Super quick which tells me that inventory is very tight with escalating prices. Condominiums accounted for 67 transactions and the average days on the market at 31 days which is high relative to the other segments.
That's pretty much it for Vaughan Real Estate and Vaughan Homes For Sale for November. Watch for my December Market Update in the first week of January.
