Hamilton Area Statistics for May 2022

Here’s What Happened This Month!

The May 2022 Real Estate Market is continuing to shift. Interest rates rose again and increased inventory seems to be leading the way for decreased prices. There were only 2 of the 10 areas tracked where the Average Price went up year to date and they were West Hamilton and Ancaster, and only slightly. This is a confusing time for Buyers and Sellers so please make sure you are getting insightful timely advice from your LOCAL REALTOR®. Ask your REALTOR® for a chart of very recent sales comparing the List Price to the Selling Price AND find out how many days the property has been on the market! An experienced REALTOR® will give you great insight on how best to move forward.

Take note that “Average sale price is based on the total dollar volume of all properties sold through the RAHB MLS® System. Average sale price can be useful in establishing long-term trends, but should not be used as an indicator that specific properties have increased or decreased in value.” What that means is, not every house or condo has increased in price by the same percentage. It is really important to talk to an experienced local REALTOR® to see EXACTLY what is happening in your particular neighbourhood. It is also important to find out what you can do to your house to get the highest amount possible when you are ready to sell!

In this Market, it is important that you know about the houses getting listed Immediately! Click Here to get set up on the Instant Listings Notification Search, otherwise, you will only know about listings once they are reported to the public sites. If you wait till you see it on Realtor.ca or other sites, it’s too late, and is probably already SOLD!
