Market recap from Brian Santos, President of KWAR:

“Affordability is a concern in Waterloo Region as we continue to see prices increase, especially for detached homes. While we believe this is more a reflection of our region being ‘discovered’ by buyers from the GTA, it is resulting in more entry-level clients pursuing condominiums and townhomes.  Combined with an ongoing tight supply of listings buyers are facing continued upward pressure on sale prices in the region.”
