Every time I sit down to write my blog about the monthly statistics, even I am blown away by the incredible numbers. Remember when everyone was shocked in February at the year-over-year increase of 36 per cent for January 2017? Well, I hope that you’re sitting down for this one - March 2017 posted a year-over-year increase of an astonishing 42 per cent from the same time period last year.

The average selling price in Durham Region rose from $489,755 in March 2016 to $697,896 last month.


It’s a great time to be a home seller in Durham Region. Just don’t forget, if you’re seeing dollar signs when you think of a potential sale, you also need to have somewhere to go when your buyers move into their new home!  If you aren’t fortunate enough to already own a second property, or aren’t willing to move further east or north when you buy, then you’re also going to be buying back into a heated market.  

There’s a lot more to consider than just popping a for sale sign on the front lawn and waiting for the offers to roll in.  That’s where having an experienced REALTOR® working with you is key to your overall success.  A professional REALTOR®, like Rebecca McGarvey, can help you price your property properly, stage your home to appeal to more potential home buyers, and help you navigate the tricky multiple offer process when the time comes!
