November 2022 Market Report

Oakville, ON, December 7, 2022 According to figures released December 6 by The Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board (OMDREB), the number of all property sales reported by OMDREB REALTORS decreased 47.7 percent for Single Family homes and 40.0 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes compared to November 2021. The Median Sales Price decreased 6.0 percent to $1,410,000 for Single Family homes and 7.0 percent to $802,500 for Townhouse/Condo homes.

The total number of new property listings decreased 2.3 percent for Single Family homes and 13.4 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes compared to this time last year.

For homes processed through the OMDREB MLS system, the number of days on market increased 136.4 percent for Single Family homes and 163.6 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes in November 2022.

Year over year, Inventory increased 411.3 percent for Single Family homes and 432.0 percent for Townhouse/Condo homes.

“There continues to be slight downward pressure on home prices in Oakville and Milton, with average prices dropping over 13% in those areas combined compared to last year. While this trend is notable for consumers, higher borrowing costs are still keeping some buyers out of the market. As a result, sales have sharply declined, albeit temporarily,” says OMDREB President Vishal Kapoor.

“Over the last 12 months, inventory has slowly risen, which is a good sign. However, we continue to remain at a low level historically, which will be a problem in the future. Demand for housing of all types will pick up again in the medium to long term due to population growth, and we must be prepared to accommodate that with additional supply. If we can’t, any supply on the market will remain unaffordable for most. This must change,” continues Kapoor.

He adds, “Whether buying, selling, or renting, OMDREB REALTORS can help navigate this rapidly changing environment. Don’t hesitate to contact a member today.”
