Last month home sales in Kitchener-Waterloo were up 25.7% compared to July 2019.
“Competition was high for buyers looking to lock down a house in July…The rate of home sales in July resembled the kind of month we would normally see in May, and I chalk up much of that to the pent up demand that built as we moved into Stage 3 of reopening in mid-July.”
Colleen Koehler, President of KWAR
