Last month’s home sales in Kitchener-Waterloo represented a decrease of 8.1 percent compared to August 2021.
“While the number of homes sold in August was down on a year-over-year basis they were up almost 19 per cent compared to July…The decline was most pronounced in the apartment-style condo and townhouse categories which could indicate that rising borrowing costs are having a greater impact on first-time buyers and those looking for more affordable options.”
M Bell, President of KWAR

Market recap from the President of KWAR:
“We see signs that the market is moving towards more buyer-friendly conditions. REALTORS® are reporting fewer multiple offers resulting in final sale prices being closer to the asking price or with more conditions accompanying offers. Even so, with inventory still very tight, Waterloo region remains a seller’s market.”
