All Residential Only Sales of 1089 Properties were only down by 0.6% from the same month last year. RAHB CEO George O'Neil stated "August was the first month this year that sales were closer to the 10-year average...In fact, if you remove the two record-setting months of August in 2015 and 2016, sales were in line with the 10-year average." The Average Residential Sales Price of properties sold through the RAHB Multiple Listing Service® (MLS) system in August 2018 was $540,891compared to $554,173 the same month last year, a slight decrease of 2.4%. That is broken down between Residential Freehold Average Price of $565,039 (down 3.8% from $587,545 in August 2017) and the Condominium Average Price at $440,997 (up quite a bit from $412,101 in August 2017). The end of month listing inventory shows 2475 Freehold Residential Properties left for sale, up 3.6% compared to 2389 Properties still available for sale at the end of August last year. Average days on the market increased from 33 to 37 for Freehold in August this year, and from 29 to 38 for Condominiums.

Always remember that "Average sale price is based on the total dollar volume of all properties sold through the RAHB MLS® System. Average sale price can be useful in establishing long-term trends, but should not be used as an indicator that specific properties have increased or decreased in value." What that means is not every house or condo has increased in price by the same percentage. It is really important to talk to an experienced local REALTOR® to see EXACTLY what is happening in your particular neighbourhood. It is also important to find out what you can do to your house to get the highest amount possible when you are ready to sell!
