All information based on MLS® data owned by Kitchener-Waterloo Association of REALTORS covering, 01/01/91 to 07/31/17, is considered accurate but cannot be guaranteed.  Listing numbers based on number as of last business day of month. Sales information does not include properties listed for rent & rented or those which do not provide year-round occupancy.

NOTES:  Sales for July saw a considerable drop from May and June but still were slightly above the 5 year average (484). Sales of high end houses [sales over $550,000) showed the second consecutive month of reduced activity. They represented only 22% of total sales [up from 20% in June]. That number was around 30% in March/April/May.

Listings asking under $460,000 generally saw more activity than those above that number as firt time buyers were able to get into what has become a much more balanced market. Listings selling for more than asking ptice dropped below 44% of total sales and many of those were for amounts only a few hundred dollars over list price..
