Above Average Number of Home Sales and More Listings in February
KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON (April 4, 2022) —The 725 residential homes sold through the Multiple Listing Service® System (MLS® System) of the Kitchener-Waterloo Association of REALTORS® (KWAR) in March 2022 is a decrease of 27.1 per cent compared to March 2021, which continues to hold the record for most home sales in a single month. On a month-over-month basis, sales in March were up 19.4 per cent compared to February 2022. The previous ten-year average number of residential sales for March is 599.
“The skyrocketing prices of the last two months took a bit of a breather in March, with the overall average price dipping five per cent compared to what we saw in February,” said Megan Bell, President of KWAR. “While it is too soon to draw conclusions from just one month of home sales, I know many will be comforted to see a leveling off on the average price, no matter how incremental.”
