This is 7.7.0% LOWER than July 2017 (8.4% lower for Residential Only but 1.5% HIGHER than the 10-year average), as reported by The REALTORS ® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB).
All Residential Only Sales of 1072 Properties were only down by 4.7% from the same month last year. The Average Residential Sales Price of properties sold through the RAHB Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) system in July 2018 was $550,090compared to $543,032 the same month last year, a slight increase of 1.3%. That is broken down between Residential Freehold Average Price of $571,718 (up very slightly from $571,025 in July 2017) and the Condominium Average Price at $440,728 (up from $413,565 in July 2017). The end of month listing inventory shows 2636 Freehold Residential Properties left for sale, up only 2.8% compared to 2564 Properties still available for sale at the end of July last year. Average days on the market increased from 25 to 31 for Freehold in July this year, and from 25 to 33 for Condominiums.
The Hamilton - Burlington Areas seem to be leaning very slightly towards a Seller Market, where the ratio of Homes Sold to Homes Listed is above 60%, currently sitting at 61.8% for Residential, (in other words 6 homes are sold for every 10 new listings). Homes Sold to Homes Listed Ratio: Buyers Market is below 40%, Balanced Market is between 40-60%, and Sellers Market is above 60%. Here is a comparison looking back over the last 3 years at what the market looked like in July which is usually a slower time for the Residential Freehold Homes.

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!
