Last month’s home sales in Kitchener-Waterloo were down 17% compared to July 2020–still above-average for sales for the month of July.
“Although home sales slowed down to some degree in July compared to June, overall demand remains very strong…The current inventory of homes available for sale in the Kitchener-Waterloo and area is extremely low, making Waterloo Region one of the most competitive markets in Ontario.”
N Pohl, President of KWAR

Market recap from the President of KWAR:
“The housing market took a bit of a breather last month. July is typically a quieter month with families taking vacation, and with the region coming out of lockdown there were certainly more staycations happening. But we do anticipate the market will pick up steam again and it will be another busy fall.”
