On a year-to-date basis, home sales totaled a record 1,379 units over the first nine months of the year. This was up significantly by 36.1% from the same period in 2020.
“Home sales in the Chatham-Kent region defied the trend seen in most other markets across Ontario and posted a record high for September,” said Laura Tourangeau, President of the Chatham-Kent Association of REALTORS®. “A large part of the uptick in sales has been the higher levels of new inventory hitting the market, despite the rise in new listings, inventory is still well-below average levels and as a result, prices continue to hit new highs.”
The average price of homes sold in September 2021 was a record $463,605, an advance of 46.5% from September 2020.
The more comprehensive year-to-date average price was $411,948, up sharply by 35.6% from the first nine months of 2020.
