Home Prices Continue To Increase With Strong Home Sales in October
KITCHENER-WATERLOO, ON (November 3, 2021) –– A total of 593 residential homes sold last month through the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS® System) of the Kitchener-Waterloo Association of REALTORS® (KWAR), a decrease of 11.1 per cent compared to last October and an increase of 16.5 per cent compared to September.
“While not as red-hot as last year’s record-breaking October, it was still a higher-than-normal number of home sales for the month, and the second-highest October on record,” says KWAR’s president, Nicole Pohl. “The number of listings coming on the market can scarcely keep up with the demand for homes in Waterloo region, and the continued price growth we see in October reflects this.”
