Above Average Number of Home Sales and More Listings in February
KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON (Mar 3, 2022) –– The 600 residential homes sold last month through the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS® System) of the Kitchener-Waterloo Association of REALTORS® (KWAR) is almost on par with February 2021, and an increase of 48.5 per cent compared to the previous month. The previous ten-year average number of residential sales for February is 424.
“In January we reported that the average price of a detached home crossed the million-dollar mark for the first time in December. Now in February, we have reached a new milestone with the average sale price of all residential property types coming in at just over one million dollars in the Kitchener-Waterloo and area,” said Megan Bell, President of KWAR. “While I think it’s premature to suggest this is the new norm, it does reflect the continued appeal of Waterloo Region to buyers. We also need to be aware and recognize the impact this has on affordability for a growing number of people.”
