The Oakville Real Estate market has remained healthy through the first half of 2013 according to statistics recently released by the Oakville, Milton and District Real Estate Board, and by the Toronto Real Estate Board.

The average price of a home in Oakville was $744 724 in June, up 4.93% from June 2012. Year to date, the average price of an Oakville Home is $755 154, representing a 6.95% increase over the same time last year.

The total number of home sales also increased last month with Oakville Real Estate agents reporting 283 sales, which represents a 7.2% increase over June of 2012.

Greater Toronto Area REALTORS® reported 9,061 sales through the TorontoMLS system in June 2013 - down by less than one per cent compared to June 2012. Over the same period, new listings were down by a greater rate than sales, suggesting market conditions became tighter.

"The sales picture in the GTA improved markedly in the second quarter of 2013. While the number of transactions was still down compared to 2012, rates of decline were substantially improved compared to the first quarter," said Toronto Real Estate Board President Dianne Usher.

"As a growing number of homebuyers, many of whom put their purchase on hold due to stricter lending guidelines, now reactivate their search, the expectation is for renewed growth in home sales in the second half of 2013," added Ms. Usher.

The average selling price in June was up by 4.7 per cent year-over-year to $531,374. In line with the 2013 norm, June price growth was driven by the single-detached and semi-detached market segments, particularly in the City of Toronto. Over the same time period, average condominium apartment selling prices remained in line with 2012 levels.

"The short supply of low-rise home types in many parts of the GTA relative to the number of households looking to buy continued to prompt strong upward pressure on selling prices of singles and semis," said Jason Mercer, TREB's Senior Manager of Market Analysis. "We have also seen enough buyers in the better-supplied condo apartment market to provide support for selling prices at current levels.”
