Last month’s home sales in Kitchener-Waterloo were down 22.1% compared to August 2020.
“The main reason for the decrease is simply that last month was the first full month in Step 3 of the reopening, and people were tired of the lockdown…They got out and enjoyed their summer and shifted their real estate needs to the back burner for a much-needed change of focus.”
N Pohl, President of KWAR
