On a year-to-date basis, home sales totaled 4,417 units over the first 11 months of the year. This edged up 1.9% from the same period in 2019.
“Sales activity set another individual monthly record for November as demand continues unabated since roaring back to life in the summer,” said Matthew Bennett-Monty, President of the Guelph and District Association of REALTORS®. “New listings have also returned to the market in solid numbers but it’s just not enough to keep up with the current pace of demand. As a result, we’re looking at some of the tightest market conditions in history. Consequently, lifting price levels up to new highs while overall supply levels continue trending at their lowest on record.”
