Kitchener – Waterloo Real Estate Market Recap: January 2021

By Market Updates No Comments

Last month home sales in Kitchener-Waterloo were up 25% compared to January 2020.


“January’s home sales were more active than what we typically see this time of year…But nothing has been typical about our housing market.”

N Pohl, President of KWAR


January Sales Breakdown:

  • 201 Detached Home Sales
  • 71 Condominium Sales
  • 21 Semi-Detached Home Sales
  • 56 Freehold Townhouse Sales

The average sale price of all residential properties sold in January was up by 24% to $695,582 compared to January 2020.


The average price of a detached home hit a new milestone by exceeding 800-thousand-dollars for the first time, coming in at $853,945 an increase of 27.3 per cent.

Average Home Price:

  • $853,945 Detached Homes
  • $383,196 Apartment-Style Condominiums
  • $566,345 Townhomes
  • $626,512 Semis

It took an average of 16 days to sell a home in January, compared to 22 days in January 2020.

Market recap from the President of KWAR:

“With demand for homes unabated and consumer preferences leaning predominantly toward single detached homes, in January we saw buyers paying a premium for this property type…Conversely, even as condo sales were increasing in January, we saw prices for this style of housing soften by comparison.”
